Fabio is the real deal. Been for lunch and for the wine pairing dinner. Highly recommend wine pairing dinner IF YOU CAN GET A RESERVATION. Great fun and great food. Place reminds me of little authentic Italian restaurants in Brooklyn. I will be a regular.

Always fun. Great food and everyone quickly feels like family. Ample samples of wines and the food is authentic Italian.

I liked Fabio's buffet next door to the main restaurant, and he did have a good breakfast in the main restaurant! He has huge portions, and his service is good! He did it all by himself! Love the salads! The potato salad is great, and the others are,too! He has a wine tasting on the weekends, and I hear they... More

We have eaten here twice the first time was for lunch and the second time for dinner. For lunch I had tha BLT which was delicious and for dinner I had the ravioli which was outstanding. My wife had the grouper Parmesan which she thoroughly enjoyed. The restaurant is a no frills basic restaurant with delicious food. Very economical.

Had the Chicken Piccata which was done to perfection over a bed of perfect pasta with some grilled veggies. The house side salad was the freshest I have ever had in a restaurant. Lots of fresh cut variety with no head lettuce. Great wine selection. Can't wait to go back for breakfast. Will definitely bring back friends I want to... More

I returned a week later but the sign on the door said closed Tuesday. I returned a few weeks later and the sign on the door... More
