3 of us went to eat here twice, first time was o.k. but second time was a disaster. We all decided to have the chefs special monkfish dish , on the head waiters recommendation, it sounded delicious .... it was awful, a grey bony fish was given to us, it was not monkfish for sure. All 3 of us sent the food back. No apology was offered, no gesture of a free drink, nothing ! needless to say we will not be going back there again.

We went to this restaurant with our children (aged 9,11 and 13) and hey enjoyed it so much they wanted to go back the following night.
The pasta was really good - and the special was really special.
Buzzy and fun.

A big thank you to the staff at De Fabio for making us feel so welcome. We stayed at Los Monteros and went to eat here twice with our 11 month old son and the staff were amazing as was the food! My little boy was a bit ratty both time but they tried to entertain him and also we ordered some food for him an it was brought out in advance so he didn't have to wait which was great. Good food, good atmosphere and great staff. They were also showing th football and offered to show every game for my fiancé! Well worth a visit!! Thank you for being so great and for the wonderful food!

Great restaurant, with good food - all the usual Italian fare including a variety of pasta dishes, good vegetarian selection plus local fish specials.
Very reasonably priced, good value for money.

Service is prompt and friendly.

We ate here 3 evenings out of 6, we liked it so much.

Well worth a few visits and we're going back next week. (The only reason I rated the atmosphere as average is that it was out of season and very quiet - I'm sure it will be bustling in summer).
