My partner and I booked a table for 2 two months in advance for our annual christmas dinner (sounds sad but only 2 of us work for the business). Table booked for 7.30pm arrived a little early at 7.20pm and was seated straight away to a nice little table for 2 in the corner, so off to a good start,... More

Didn't get a chance to taste the food. Sat in a very noisy, full, hot downstairs. Weren't offered drinks, no staff visible. Would have loved to try the food but it was obvious there were too many tables. Don't take reservations if you can't cope with the volume. Staff at front of house weren't friendly either. A real shame.

We sincerely apologise for the experience you had with us. It's not that we are taking too many bookings, we are just getting by as a business. There seem to be an issue around the arrival time of a lot of customers that evening at the same time. It was the end of the month, there isn't enough parking spaces... More

I've been to Fabio's about 50 times and can honestly say I've never left disappointed. Mario the owner is an amazing host and his team are exceptional at creating a warm and jolly atmosphere. The food is always delicious and it's no wonder the place is always packed.

We had booked a table for 2 for 20.30 on a Saturday. We were showed to a table for 2 in the main restaurant- the place was packed and unbelievably noisy even for an Italian restaurant. Before we sat down we were asked if we would prefer a quieter table downstairs - we definitely would. We were shown to a... More

Fabio's was absolutely packed on a Saturday night. Families, groups of friends and couples enjoying the bustling atmosphere and great food. The beef stroganoff is to die for and there are plenty of pasta dishes for every taste. Friendly, knowledgeable waiters. A great time was had by all

I have been to Fabio's many times over the years and it is always good. The food is tasty, the servings are large without making you feel greedy and the staff are friendly without being over the top. The atmosphere is absolutely great and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

My wife & I went there with our friends on Friday the 23 September for dinner and as usual it was excellent. The staff are very welcoming, the atmosphere is great & the food is the best Italian in Swindon. I will keep going back as they always deliver, thanks again😀

Eaten here twice this month, once for my daughters birthday and second time with friends. I cannot fault either visit for meal quality and service, first class felt spoilt even though they were busy (obvious why). Totally recommended and would suggest booking as they get busy but not uncomfortable/noisy.

I'm fussy and critical I've been to many restaurants in Swindon and like to pick holes but I was astounded at how good this place is - clean, beautifully cooked food - attentive but not over bearing service and really reasonable prices - had the mussels to start - beautiful, no grit and the sauce was to die for -...
