Diner Reviews
  • "food was about a C+ better and more crusty bread needed"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "I had decided to take my parents to Fazzini's for their 42nd wedding anniversary and was extremly dissapointed from the moment we were "greeted" by the hostess. Every single associate from the Hostess to the Food Runner lacked the customer service skills necessary for a restaurant charging over $20/plate. The hostess was extremly rude, the waitress continually forget to bring items requested, and to be quite frank, the food was subpar at best. Save your energy and go to Little Italy if you want Italian food."

  • "Really enjoyed dining at Fazzini Taverna on a recent Saturday evening. Loved the calamari appetizer, and the homemade pasta is the best - Rigatoni with bolognese sauce and Gnochietti [pasta] with broccoli rabe and sausage. Everything was freshly prepared, the sauces were flavorful and the service attentive and not rushed!"

  • "A destination restaurant! We went for the food and will return because of the service!"

  • "My husband and I both enjoyed the pasta entrees that we ordered, but both felt something was missing from the dishes to make them "exceptional". Definitely plan to return and trying the brick oven pizza which looked and smelled amazing!!! I also like that they offer carryout, including 6 packs, and if you order online they offer coupons and deals!"

  • "Tried this restaurant for the first time following a newspaper review that raved about the eggplant parmigiana. The place was noisy so I could barely converse with others in my party of five. The service and the salad were ok but the eggplant parmigiana was a great disappointment. The plate and outer portion were piping hot but the center cold. Heavy on the cheese and light on the eggplant. Obviously prepared much earlier and popped in a hot oven. A cheap trick from cheap restaurants. As I said a great disappointment considering what I was led to believe by the article I had just read."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed happy hour at Fazzini's on a busy Tuesday night. The service was wonderful and the staff was attentive and friendly. Wines by the glass are $2 off during happy hour (bar only) and the wine list is fun and interesting. We split a great and sizable chicken pesto pizza for $10 (happy hour special), baked shrimp with lemon and garlic (a little over cooked but high quality and generous size for $8), a house salad with a sweet Italian dressing and the cream of crab soup. Its so wonderful to have a local restaurant in our neighborhood with quality homemade food. This place will be a success. AND, they provided a complimentary lemoncello shot after our meal - great touch!"

  • "Service was excellent. Waiter was the best! Food was good but a little over baked"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Gazpacho was excellent; ravioli sauce was just okay; tiramisu was gigantic and superb! Server was very competent and friendly, but there was too much down time between courses. I will return to try the other entrees."

  • "We wanted to love Fazzini's. We'd heard good things and it's nice to have outside-the-beltway options. Unfortunately, while there was no glaring problem, our experience just 'missed'. It wasn't the food or drink's fault. That was fine. (We had the eggplant parm and the shrimp scampi. No complaints.) So what's the problem? The setting was a bit of a turn-off. The restaurant is a typical suburban box and it's a little noisy. It's casual (fine) but we saw customers wearing gym shorts and flip flops (seriously?). It's also an older crowd...which is fine (I'm no spring chicken, myself!) but all that adds up to a touch of a south Florida, cafeteria-in-a-shopping-mall vibe. We may go back but we won't add it to our regular restaurant rotation."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "This was our first time to the new location. Even though the restaurant is much larger, it still has retained all of its original personality. The food was delicious and the wait staff was fabulous."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "From rigotini with moist chunks of chicken smothered in cheese, to chicken parm with a sweet and savory marinara sauce, Fazzini's Taverna is a great addition to the Timonium/Cockeysville big appetite, restaurant scene We loved the Kitchen when we lived near it, but that was just a stepping stone to the Taverna. We look forward to coming back for more."

  • "I recommend it very much!!! I love the mushroom ravioli. My friend loved the shrimp."

  • "First time at Fazzinis and it was great evening. The calamari appetizer was the best I've had. It had a nice spicy kick to it which was fantastic since I like spicy food. We each got one of the homemade pastas which were good but were average in my opinion. Nothing really stuck out to make it memorable. For dessert we got the creme brule which was definitely big enough for two at a nice price. I would go again for sure."

  • "A bit pricy compared to other area restaurants but very good quality food."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I will start with the positive. Our server and the food were fantastic! Our server, Lauren recognized that "entry" had been rough and wanted to do everything she could to win us over. The food was so great. House salad, pasta, and lasagna were exactly like days of old. Now, I back up to our arrival. When we arrived ten minutes before our reservation we were still short two people in our party. They would not seat us. Many tables were open. Weird. It really put a bad taste in our mouth. We wanted to sit,relax, and order a cocktail. Then when we were seated we asked to sit in a booth, the hostess asked if we had requested that ahead of time. What? She then went on to argue a lengthy explanation. We chalked it up to youth. So, overall..good."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Very disappointing. Especially after reading the review in the food section of The Baltimore Sun newspaper. The only good thing that I can say about the food is that it did come out hot. As far as flavor is concerned, it was alright, just ok, nothing more. Our food took a very long time to come out of the kitchen. Our server was very friendly and did a nice job."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "From the moment you walk in, expect to be treated like family. So refreshing to see people who are smiling and appear to enjoy their jobs! This goes from the manager down to the buss staff. So helpful and when they ask if everything is fine and do you need anything, they really mean it! As far as the menu, it offers a range of selections so all should be happy. The food, although not haute cuisine , is down home, fresh comfort Italian! Serving sizes are extremely ample , so take home bags are the usual!. Pastas are homemade and excellent! Save room for dessert, as this is one of the best tiramisu that I have ever had. Our server Kris was outstanding! I highly recommend that you give this place a try!"

  • "We read the article in the Sunday Sun on the Fazzini's Tavern and decided to give it a try. We took our two grown daughters and the fiancé of the younger one to enjoy the food and drinks at Fazzini's-- and enjoy it we all did. The food was terrific, well prepared, tasty, varied, and not too expensive. We will be back soon to sample other menu items, like the woodfire baked pizzas!"

  • "Very disappointing. Service was very spotty and the food mediocre. I have no desire to return soon."

  • "Fazzinis has recently moved to York Road and what a great decesion. They have my favorite dish, chicken piccata. I have been there twice. Ate inside on one occasion and outside on the other. Service is great. Food is delicious. Give it a try"

  • "We had a great meal. The shrimp fra diavolo was unique yet delicious. They had a great wine list, good kids' menu and the bread was great. The roasted garlic in olive oil was also delicious. The menu was full of great choices. The only problem was the service. They are working out kinks since they just opened, so we are understanding to some issues, just not our actual waiter. They seemed to be extremely over staffed, which you could overhear staff complaining about, but that will get worked out over time. Our waiter was very hard to understand, inefficient and extremely pushy. We asked for the check 3 times and he would not bring it. He kept trying to get us to buy more food. After speaking to the owner, I am sure he will get better."

  • "Food was good. Customer service could be better. Pizza missing a slice & they made another one (said to start on first one while we waited). Found a hair in first pizza & showed waiter who took pizza & brought the other one. Waiter was boxing food & spilled sauce on my mother's white jacket. He tried to remove the stain with hand sanitizer & brought the manager over when that didn't work. The manager however was not very interested in working with us & treated us like nuisances- he did say he would pay for dry cleaning if she could not get stain out but told her she should not wear white to an Italian restaurant. The pizza should have been discounted and the manager could have been a little more empathetic."

  • "I am so happy that Fazzini's now has another home with so much more seating! We used to go to the Cranbrook location but the seating was limited. Now they have much more room and a liquor license. Their food was wonderful and the wait staff is very friendly and attentive. They also had some great wines by the glass and an interesting wine menu overall. They have two party rooms you can reserve which I will definitely keep in mind in the future. I highly recommend the new Fazzini's experience."

  • "We started off receiving the wrong drinks. Ordered two regular iced teas, nothing extraordinary. Our meals were brought out only a few minutes after our salads, so meals were cold by the time we ate them. When we received our check, it was the wrong check. Luckily, the people who received our check had not left, so this was quickly rectified. The waitress was actually very nice, as was all the servers. The food was very good, although would have probably tasted even better if not cold."

  • "I used to go to the "old" Fazzini's for carry-out. I'm so glad that they have this wonderful, new facility that has kept some of my "favorites" and added a bunch of new selections. The asparagus fritters are to-die-for! Great wine selection as well. Have already sent friends here who have thanked me for it! Service was excellent the evening I had dinner even though they were almost fully-booked. I plan on becoming a regular diner here!"

  • "A group of us were there on a Friday. We had gone to the old location in the past and were eager to check out the new spot. The food is every bit as good as it was before in a much nicer space and cocktails. It was busy when we were there but, our service was excellent. Stephanie, our server was friendly and attentive"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Fazzini's move to a space five times it's size has turned out to be a plus for all of us who could never get a seat in their former tiny strip mall restaurant. The home made pasta is till spot on and they've expanded the menu to include wood-fired pizzas and some nice specials. The new restaurant is quite large with a nice outdoor area and large bar. The service was excellent, with food arriving the appropriate time after each course. So glad to have this restaurant in the neighborhood."

  • "Fazzini spent many years tucked away in a neighborhood shopping center. No, it was not easy to find but the food was great and had folks waiting in line, on the sidewalk. Food was always Excellent. Question always was, "In the mood for Italian?", then it was Fazzini's!! Now, they have made the big leap to a much, much larger space. The space is, up front, on York Road in Cockysville; the total remodeling is fantastic! The wait staff is courteous, polite, helpful and professional (and with a sense of humor). The food is JUST as GREAT as in the prior location! Congratulations to Fazzini on the Taverna!! Attached is a wine store with excellent selections. Even better than before! Great location, Great Food, Great Coordination!"

  • "The restaurant is very classy as far as the decor. Very comfortable seating and layout. However, for me the food did not meet the same criteria. It wasn't bad tasting, just not very notable. Some of the seasonings that are used are different, but different in a not very good way."

  • " tried the taverna for lunch and went at a time in between lunch and dinner and they gave us a lunch menu. we were seated in a booth. they do have a decent sized lunch menu with a nice variety of foods. we split a large cup of the italian wedding soup to start. it didnt look like any wedding soup we had had before, but it was DELICIOUS. we did miss the pasta in it though. it had a creamy chicken base and large meatballs. decided on a basic cheesesteak which was really quite good....shaved ribeye and the bread was very fresh and excellent and so was the prosciutto and arugula pizza. crust was excellent. service was quite slow and we had to ask numerous times for items we needed at the table. sazeracs from the bar were perfect! will be back!"

  • "3 of us thought our entrees lacked flavor. These included chicken Francesca, chicken and veal Marsala. The house starter salad was very good and fresh. Too bad the entrees looked better than they tasted. Our server was excellent and friendly. The interior has been nicely updated from the former PIV's. However, for the price not sure I'd go back with other similar Italian restaurants nearby, that have proven themselves with excellent tasting entrees."
