Fabiani's - Wailea
For italian, no special flavor or taste.
All the food was delicious. Was able to change up my pasta dish a bit and absolutely loved it. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
Service was very slow even for fairly simple orders. The wait staff was friendly and kind, but the food took a long time to arrive.
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.
Consistently good Italian food. Great family restaurant with a diverse menu, there is something for everyone. Restaurant is quite noisy, difficult to carry on a conversation
Pizzas were good, as was pasta. Service was fine, if a bit on the slow side. Good meal.
Took our visiting son and daughter-in-law and 2 granddaughters to Fabiani’s, the service and food was excellent.
Excellent service and great value. Would go back for sure!
Fabiani's is one of our favorite local restaurants and our recent visit was excellent as always. I highly recommend whatever fish is available as the special as it is always cooked perfectly and prepared with great attention to flavor. Delicious food, excellent service.
Good prices for good food, given normally high Maui prices. Excellent homemade mushroom soup, dinner-s9ze salads were good.
It was interesting , we had a choice to go tom the Kihie site or Wailea . We were looking for a more quiet easy dinner setting , It did eventually get there as the evening ended and most clients finished their meals . An outside deck area would have been better than the somewhat tight seating inside .
Great food!! We were on vacation and wanted regular down to earth Italian food. We really enjoyed our meals. Not too fussy
We had a wonderful dinner! We will definitely recommend to family & friends!
This is our second time and we were not disappointed 😊. The food is delicious and fresh. And the server was wonderful. It took us a little bit to get our bill at the end of our meal but hey...we are on vacation and not in a rush. Our server also had a couple of large tables that she was tending too, which is probably the reason for the delay. We will come again!
Yummy Italian food in Wailea!!!
A really great find in the little shopping center near the Monkey Pod....and a lot better food! Everyone in our party of 6 loved their meals. We going back!
Perfect as usual. Thanks.
We were disappointed.. We have been here many times before but the food was below average with a calzone that was greasy, a pizza that was overdone and garlic bread that was barely heated. It was a very disappointing meal for all the times that we have had such good experiences before. We may give it another try on another visit but it was very disappointing this time.
We went a few nights after Thanksgiving, and the restaturant was only about half full. The service was good, and the food was also. I took a big chance and tried a Mexican style pizza with spicy chicken, sour cream, and guacamole, and wasn't too impressed. My wife had clams, and my friend had a pasta with vodka. The food was generally very good, and I loved the garlic bread!
Great soup and salad, outstanding pizza.
Our go to Italian spot when on Island Always great and service is awesome
Awesome food and service. Amazing tasting dishes. Love the atmosphere. Dining d light 🍽. Definitely worth the visit
Have been here many times, this time service not as attentive as other times. Yes, they were busy, but not slammed. There were only two of us, but many other parties were 6 people plus.
Overall good, and will go back again.
Food was very good but service ... I had to ask for a refill I water and I have to ask again for a second glass of wine. Too many customers...not enough servers?
We won’t return during our vacation
Always good, they ran out of lasagna, but the recommendation from the waiter was even better
Had an outstanding dinner here yesterday evening. Our new favorite Italian restaurant.
Service and food were both superb.
Arrived in the evening after flying 13+ hrs from the east coast. We used to go to Bev Gannon’s Joe’s at the tennis courts, but Fabiani’s was just the right medicine for my screaming headache. Low key, attention to detail, great customer service, and a diverse menu all contribute to a fantastic dining experience. Hubby had the chopped salad (1/2) and eggplant napoleon which he found delicious. I had the Fabiani’s salad and a custom pizza.
Server forgot our appetizer but overall excellent food and service just a minor mishap.
Consistently good food & service. Both servers: Eva & Cody are helpful, offer great suggestions & always add to the positive, casual experience. We love the bread!
Plain unimaginative lacking flavor and quality.
Need better bread for Italian & same goes for garlic bread. All other food was delicious
It was Restaurant Week the food was delicious and service was excellent . I would highly recommend this restaurant to dine.
2nd time here in a week. We have been here several times over the last few years.. I believe they must have been short staffed. The people I dealt with seemed great. We got our salad long before any drinks arrived. When we got the drinks, the main course arrived. Done in 45 minutes from arriving. Their loss. No one to blame for the shortcoming.
The food and the service were outstanding.
I never write reviews. This place was terrible - the food was flavorless, the staff struggled. Clearly there was an issue with the back of the house but we felt all the pain in the front. For somewhere else.
We waited 45 mins for our food to arrive after ordering. The waiter never checked on us during that time but walked past our table several times.
I had to call on the waiter to ask how long more our food was going to take and then he apologized we are waiting on one more dish.
Other guests came in after us got their food before us. It’s a small restaurant too. It would have been nice if He checked in on us, refilled our drinks, ask if there was anything he can do and then let us know the food was delayed.
We ate at Fabiani’s during our honeymoon in Wailea. The food at Fabiani’s was great - we ordered their special appetizer, which were these chicken parmesan stuffed raviolis with a cream pesto sauce, the pizza special, which was a white pizza with broccoli, chicken, and sundried tomatoes, and we ordered the rigatoni with sausage and a red sauce. The service was great and the restaurant was cozy and clean.
