My wife and I eat out at least 3 nights per week so it takes a lot to impress up and neither of us found anything exceptional about Fascino. I found the waiter to be extremely pretentious and the food to be average. I ordered...More

Our group acted on an online review and Fascino lived up to its reputation. Great food, great presentation, and wonderful, interactive, personal service. Mondays can often be a downer for service and quality at many restaurants, but our experience made Monday a momentous moment.

This was my first time here, with a group of four people, and we were all excited about a great upscale Italian experience and were continually surprised throughout the meal with the amateur service and the lukewarm, below-average food. We split 4 appetizers, 4 desserts...More

We eat out a lot in Montclair and had never been to Fascino so we thought we would give it a shot. The menu was creative and inventive. The squash soup was very good but a little bland. My wife had the Yellowfin Tuna appetizer...More

Great experience - ordered the tasting menu and nothing disappointed. Prices were average given the high quality level and service was friendly, if a little slow.

Fascino has been here for a long time with good reason. They are consistently one of the best due to the high standards set by Ryan, Anthony and Cynthia. They are truly the best.

The food is good. The staff is attentive. The decor doesn't impress me and the music is too loud for a sophisticated restaurant.

Description
"The atmosphere of Fascino, with its minimalist cream and deep red decor, borders on stark but not casual. The complexity's in the entrees, where flavors, scents and textures fuse seamlessly. Puree of kobacha squash soup with oregano crema and hazelnut oil wins the intriguing appetizer award, and the paper-thin sheets of beef carpaccio with truffle oil and petite salad are a beef purist's dream. Pastas, risottos and raviolis are all available as appetizers or main courses, but the duck breast with confit cannelloni and black fig compote or pine nut-crusted codfish might be hard to pass up." -- Mike Hess, AOL Digital City
