Service and food were excellent!! The service really stood out and the restaurant was packed. I have been living in this neighborhood for years and always passed this restaurant. Definitely a date or place for large groups. Warm ambiance. When me and my family finally decided to try it we were happily surprised.

Real Italian food and real Italians
Fabio Piccolo Fiore is an elegant restaurant where you can get terrific specials created by the chef and accurately described by the wait staff, who are one of the main treasures of the restaurant. At my last visit, some guests had special dietary restrictions and the waiter and chef worked out a way for us all to have a great lunch and respect our diets. Nothing was too much trouble and the amazing thing was that all the main course arrived together even though some people came late and ordered late. We were able to get our business done in the quiet atmosphere and everyone commented on the high quality of the food - from the chicken cordon bleu special to the salmon, to the great orecchiette. Next meeting: FPF!!

The food was outstanding and unique, with top notch service to boot! Can't wait for my next visit to NYC to dine here again...

I have been to this restaurant several times and each time they welcome me back like family. Every course I have is delicious, but I drive to NY just to have the Chef's pasta special. It's amazing and the preparation is table side and entertaining. Quiet and romantic it's the perfect spot for date night. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the atmosphere and food.

A reliable Italian classic - very well executed dishes - well polished warm service with no pushiness for extra dishes or hustle to get you out - comfortable ambiance with relaxed feel and noise level conducive to conversation

I have been to this restaurant
I have been to this restaurant twice. The food is really good and the restaurant is spacious meaning the tables are not too close to one another. The service is good but they could be a bit more friendly. Everyone is very serious and not many smiles.

From the moment one enters, the staff at this restaurant makes the experience feel as though you are entering the home of a friend who is delighted you've come. They are helpful in making suggestions about wine and food without being intrusive.

Perfect for quiet conversation
I was looking for a quiet place near grand central to meet with colleagues for a relaxing dinner but also serious conversation. This was perfect. The food was very good, the wine excellent, the service wonderful and the setting exactly conducive to what we needed.

Excellent vegetable soup and the seafood salad was particularly hearty. Our service was spotty but well intentioned....gracious when he came by. Quite a few people here for lunch but the noise was never overwhelming.

Tuesday night dinner
Found this restaurant on OpenTable and it is truely a gem. Was close to our midtown location and easy walking. The restaurant was packed on a Tuesday night which amazed me. Many were business associates but also there were some local residents who came for their meal. Will definitly return. Excellent menu options and all well prepared.

A quiet dining experience with gentle ambiance. They don't rush you (we stayed for hours and literally had to ask for the check). The head waiter has been there for 15 years, and was very very good. Supporting waitstaff was less experienced, but it didn't really detract from the dining experience.

Classic friendly Italian
We found this little gem using open table- It was close to where we we were staying in NYC for a romantic weekend and decided to give it a try. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel at home in the classically decorated, white tablecloth Italian restaurant. The staff was attentive. Service was efficient and unrushed. the food was very good as well. We started with the calamari fritti- perfectly cooked fresh rings of goodness. My wife had Chicken Parm and i had the short rib special. both wonderful.
The drinks (martini and cosmo) were done perfectly. And the wine was quite nice as well- Chianti in an Italian restaurant in NYC on a Saturday night... Perfect

I have been a guest at Fabios during the past 8 years and have never been disappointed.

Excellent meal near Grand Central
A great place to meet friends for really good Italian food in an inviting room filled with artwork. The service was warm and friendly without being pretentious. It was very comfortable to sit and quiet enough for good conversation. Highly recommended, especially if you're looking for a place near Grand Central.

All four of us had great meals after wonderful baked clams. The lobster ravioli is amazing.
