You might miss Fabios at first glancw from the main road. If you can spot this treasure in a little one way side street in Hermanus then you'll experience passionately prepared pasta, attentive and friendly service, authentic Italian cuisine.

Great place for a pizza or similar - good atmosphere and good service. A 10% service charge was added to our bill which was unusual for a couple dining in South Africa in our experience. The service was good and we would have left a 10% tip anyway, but if we hadn't read the bill we would have left an... More

We popped into this inviting restaurant on the advice of a local food guru and returned again and again and.......thank heavens we did. Fabio´s is an absolute haven in a town where restaurants appear more often judged for their sea views and rapid fire service than on the mediocre dishes offered up to the fickle tastes and transient nature of...

This place must be a 70 to 80 seater, so please keep that in mind when you say the food may not have the attention to detail that you would expect. It was 14h30, which is not the best time for a restaurant, as they are winding down from their lunch trade, but we were welcomed enthusiastically by Claudio, and... More

We had a really great meal at Fabios during our stay in Hermanus. The pizzas were excellent and the service really friendly. We wish we'd been staying long enough to eat there again! It's probably worth booking a table as the resturant seemed to fill up early and we were lucky to get a table.

Very large restaurant with good ambience. Italian music playing. The service was good. We didn't have a booking and managed to get in. The food good but I only give it 3 Star. Prices average.

A brilliant Italian restaurant made even more special by the manager Wieiske who was a star and very attentive in spite of the restaurant being busy busy. We had the best pasta dishes on our holiday in South Africa here. Would highly recommend this restaurant in Hermanus!!!

Arrived back late in Hermanus on Friday night and took a chance at getting a table here. Maitre D was extremely helpful and gave us the "last one". Waiter was top class with a great personality. Menu was good and servings were larger than average. Pasta was delicious and took home as portions were large. Wine list was limited but... More
