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.

The food was great, however the service was less than desired. The hostess was amazing and deserves a huge raise as she kept that place going!

We enjoyed our meal and will return for sure! Not a ton of protein in the pasta dishes BUT for the cost is excellent. We would suggest adding another protein to a dish which is an option here. Depending on what else you are eating. Their carpaccio was wonderful! A bit too much olive oil BUT it was excellent olive oil!

Excellent food. The Arricini risotto balls are outstanding. Decent value for the money. As our party was dining close to close, the server gave us free desserts to take home. Nice touch.

Fabiani's is for reasonable family style non-fancy Italian food in Wailea. It was very crowded when we were there and the wait staff was a bit overwhelmed (we had to ask for things as simple as utensils when our food was served). We had to wait about 15 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. The food is OK but not exceptional. But, it's Wailea....

Enjoyed the Wailea location much more than the Kihei restaurant. Wailea was much quieter, cleaner and more relaxing than the crowded, very noisy Kihei locale. When I say cleaner, it just looked more put together, not so haphazard. Easy to have a conversation vs Kihei where we couldn't even hear each other at our small 3-top because of tables really close to each other and other conversations and kids encroaching on us.

Lackluster food, service was slow although the restaurant didn’t have many patrons. Waitress asked if we’d like more bread (which we initially received 5 small squares of bread for a party of 5), we said yes but was never served the additional bread. Even the iced tea tasted way off. We would not recommend Fabiani’s, find somewhere else if your looking for good Italian food.

Fabiani's is one of our favorite restaurants. Although we usually order fabulous spaghetti carbonara and haleakula pizza (with crispy kale, potatoes, carmelized onions, and bacon), we tried and thoroughly enjoyed the eggplant napolitano (stacked high) and ossu buco. And the staff was so accommodating when our 13-month-old grandson dined with us. Great food, friendly service.

We ate here twice during our stay in Maui. Reasonably priced Italian that tastes good for the price. Wait staff was very nice and accommodating for our large group (14 in all). I would definitely recommend for people looking for a casual and reasonably priced meal (hard to find in Wailea).

The food was nearly poisonous. I believe the Yelp reviews are from family only as the food was terrible and worse than fast food. These people are not from Italy as they claim. Very upset to have to pay $120 for terrible food, crappy ambience, subpar service. Never again. Matteo's just down the street is worlds above this lousy place

First of all let me say that this was during Christmas week, so it was incredibly busy and very loud. Nevertheless, our server was fairly attentive and the food was good. We were in and out in an hour and a half.

We shared the Caprese Salad to start which was ok. The tomatoes were under ripe with not much flavor. The pesto was good and the balsamic reduction was yummy.

I had the fish special which was amazing. It was pan seared Monchong with mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. The fish was cooked perfectly and the flavors were delicious. I would definitely order again.

We took one star off for the chicken parm. The portion size was generous, but the red sauce was just a little blah. It wasn’t bad. It should just be a little better for an Italian restaurant.

Overall, our experience was positive.

I have been going to this restaurant for years and knew to make a reservation during Xmas season, but couldn’t believe how overcrowded it was. It was apparent that they had brought in additional tables with uncomfortable folding chairs to make more money, but it was unbearably loud and uncomfortable. Made my reservation 3 days in advance but was escorted to a folding table by the kitchen and entrance to bathroom. When I asked to be moved we were given the choice to either sit at bar or outside but couldn’t drink outside! We ended up outside because of the noise. My option was to get my own bottle of wine but then pay an astronomincal corkage fee. Chose to forgo wine and drank water. The pizza was over cooked and definitely not up to par. Only saving grace was the waiter. Samuel was quite personable and efficient.
