“Gravy tastes like canned tomato sauce”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Have been going to Fazio's for years but something has changed. Not sure if it or I am changing but the Gravy tastes like tomato sauce... and looks like it. This is an Italian place, spaghetti, ravioli, etc and the Gravy is what makes the dish. Last time in, got the seafood and it was pretty bad.. overcooked and oily. At least, the toasted garlic bread is still good. Old Family Restaurant but it is dated and evidently in a rut.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Overpriced, less-than-mediocre Italian food. Think 1960-70s style restaurant trying to be hip. Also the location is in a part of town that looks rundown and a bit shady.

“Love the baked eggplant!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Fazio's has been around for as long time and a favorite for many family celebratory dinners. I have never been disappointed in their food. The service has always been a little slow and the prices a bit high. I usually get the baked eggplant. The garlic bread is rather ordinary. The decor is outdated. It always seems crowded and staff always has a tough time keeping up. Our group was a bit surprised at their eagerness to clean up and close up for the evening. If you're visting charleston and looking for a nice Italian dinner with atmosphere try Soho's in the Capitol Market instead.
