The dark, cool interior of Fabio's on a hot summer day was most welcome, even if the cuisine was less than wonderful. Pleasant, overworked wait staff helped the situation, but served the wrong wine and never came back to check on it. My partner and I both had insalata caprese and veal livornese. We agreed the meal could easily have... More

Remarkable food. Excellent ambiance inside. The outside belies the excellent experience inside. From the complimentary bread to the desert, all of the food was exceptional.

Haven't been here in awhile so we thought we'd try it again. Once again it was a disappointment. The decor is a mishmash of nothingness, strings of Christmas lights and fish tanks, including one with a giant piranha that is so big it can't move within the tank and makes you feel sorry for him! With only one other couple... More

Anyone who's been to Fabio's recently knows the food is amazing and tastes like its straight off the boat from Italy! Must commend Fabio on many fabulous meals. This place is a regular favorite for me and my family. I recommend trying the lemon chicken, steak, and the priest chokers!

As good or better than carabaos. Nice atmosphere and good service hubby had veal scallopini it was great. I had a dish that was lightly breaded veal and portobellos and it was great. So good that we didn't even eat the pasta. Excellent lobster bisque

A gem of restaurant that must be experienced when visiting Cortland, NY. Authentic Italian food. Home made varieties of pasta. Yes, made fresh. Started with a soup each and then a large salad which was just enough to serve us both. Had the veal parmigiana which you can cut with a fork, two large delicious pieces. Husband had the homemade...

Fabio's is "old school" Italian! Almost everything is house made. I had the baked penne. Never saw scratch penne on a menu before. Very good. Beware of splashing tomato sauce! Husband had spaghetti bolognese and was very pleased as well. The caprese salad was small but good. The bread and dipping oil very good. The atmosphere was interesting, surrounded by... More

Not the traditional pasta sauce accustomed to, dishes were high priced, ordered veal parm, did not include pasta, that was extra and high priced for such a small portion. Cannot recommend

I was in town for work and after scouring TripAdvisor, I had been pretty excited to try Fabio's. I felt Fabio was a real person who cared about his work based on the responses he would make to the comments on here. The dinner definitely did not disappoint. The decor was great! The first thing I noticed was the little... More

I had a family dinner at Fabio's over the weekend and it really was a mixed bag. Some of the dishes were quite good, others did not work. My aunt had preplanned a meal for entire family to get together and I have to say that the pacing of the meal and the service was excellent. The waitress, Ann, had... More
