“Took a chance, came up winners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

I had read the mixed reviews for Fazios but decided to take a chance. It is not in the best part of town, not scary just surrounded by warehouses, etc. we had reservations and were seated at once. They brought us a "nibble" while we were perusing the menu. It was quite unusual - cantaloupe, crackers and pimento cheese. When our food came it was hot and delicious. I had the linguine with white clam sauce with broiled scallops. The portion was large and the pasta was cooked just enough. The sauce was rich and filled with bits of clam. Overall, very well done. My wife ordered canneloni stuffed with veal, spinach and cheese in red sauce. She was very satisfied as well. The only flaw was the garlic bread which was saturated with butter and very garlicky. Tasted good but a heart attack on a side plate. Bill came to right at $40.00- which was reasonable for what we had. The decor was old but cozy. Would definitely eat there again.

“Worse Italian Restaurant Food EVER!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Believe the low ratings--it wasn't even good food, much less good Italian food. If you like this place, then you don't know real Italian food. The second worse restaurant in all my 65 years of dining out, here, there, and abroad. Don't bother--this place is a joke and should retire.
