Italian
Born in Cinque Terre Lorenzo Fabiani and his wife Michelle Fabiani have recreated their love for Italian food at Fabiani's Wailea. The menu is loyal to the Italian classics such as Spaghetti Meatballs, Bolognese and our signature Osso Bucco with a strong emphasis on providing fresh Seafood in our Risotto and Linguine con Vongole. Italian American influences feature strongly with New York style thin crust Pizzas culminating in a fabulous dining experience. There are also family-style options, along with vegetarian and gluten-free pizza and pasta. Michelle Fabiani prepares decadent desserts like the signature Tiramisu Cheesecake and French Macaroons serving as the perfect ending.

Let me preface my saying the service is here way ok. No one was rude or unprofessional. Buuuut, nonetheless, this was the 2nd worst food dinging I've ever had. Both the food and the ambiance are sad. There is no other fitting word besides sad. Even my lemon drop was sad. Everything felt as if it lacked inspiration or kitchen guidance. I have the chicken parmesan and it was just bland. My boyfriend had pizza and the sauce is nasty sweet. Both of our appetizers were thrown together and not worth half the amount we paid.

I had higher expectations given the nice location in Wailea but skip this place if you're in town. Overall not worth it.

Awesome meal and service. The server talked us through the menu as we were first timers there and helped me to pick out the eggplant napolitano which I would highly recommend as it was out of this world! Husband had chicken parmiagna which he enjoyed, but said the sauce was just a bit bland.

We will definitely return

Beef carpaccio: small portion, tasty, should be more carpaccio for the price. More like an arugula salad with eight very small slivers of beef

Shrimp fettuccine Alfredo : generous creamy but hey.. this is a standard

Fish risotto: excellent variety including local fish, this is a winner

Beef lasagna: came in a bowl not a plate and surrounded by sauce. No discernible or visual layers. No distinguishable bechemel sauce. More like a bolognese using lasagna noodles.

Desserts: a must try: tiramisu cheesecake

Two glasses of red: one Chianti and one Sangiovese paired nicely
Lemon drop martini with Tuaca was a nice surprise
Friendly knowledgeable server was very prompt

We have come to your restaurant once or twice every March during spring break for the last many years. This year‘s experience was our worst by far. You did not have any complimentary bread. How does an Italian restaurant run out of bread?. And the lasagna which we get every year and it is fantastic, was about half the size of what it normally was. The waitress wasn’t very friendly either. I have always recommended your restaurant to people visiting and it is normally just fantastic and at a decent price. I was very disappointed this year. We did not come for a second visit like we normally do. Raise the price a little versus cutting portions so much!

Server said they were understaffed and it was obvious. We had to ask for the complimentary bred mid-meal and he didn’t any butter or oil. When we asked for some he ran and got oil and vinegar container for the salads and threw it on out table. Our first time at thhis location and we found the food and ambiance better but the service not that great.

Had an early reservation so not crowded at all. Ordered a glass of wine which I received after I got my meal. It would have been nice to have it with the bread basket they brought before the meal.
I had spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs were on the dry side.

Average meal. Probably would find different dining options next time.

Food was good, and priced well, the only thing that was lacking was the service. Although in fairness. The service started poorly the server did realize it and step up his game in the second half of dinner.

We were in Waliea for two nights and went to Fabiani's for dinner twice. I don't usually rave about spaghetti (especially at $20 a plate) but it was the best. Chicken Parm the second night equally outstanding.

Another great fun meal at one of our favorite casual dining spots on Maui! Weather was a bit cold and windy so we sat indoors and it was very loud which would be our only negative about this restaurant when it's busy it's noisy because of the layout. But the food and service is great so you just have to plan to have a fun dinner. We were a group of 6 and all had great pasta dishes and fresh salads.
Highly recommend you give it a try.

Excellent food and very good value. The wine list was quite extensive, and drinks reasonably priced.The service was excellent; the staff was friendly and polite, but not pushy and did not make us feel rushed. The food arrived promptly. The only drawback was that it was noisy. Perhaps more baffles on the ceiling would help? Or cork on the floor?
