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.

Very accommodating in our reservation for 8. The food was very good. The garlic bread was the bomb. I’ve heard the desserts are delish too.

Our waiter was excellent. He was very friendly and helpful.
Unfortunately, they had changed the menu since the last time we went and choices were limited. Our food was good though.

The food and the service was great. The place is basic but friendly. It is a good place to go to for a great meal at a good price. They have take out which is a good option if you want to eat at home.

Good meal, good service but the red wine we were serviced was too cold. Yes ted wine can be chilled but shouldn’t be served cold. That was disappointing considering the cost.

This is our neighborhood gem. Our friends, in from Seattle, wanted to treat us to dinner & Fabiani’s was our choice. This night, they had homemade pasta as a special ($3 extra for any pasta dish on the menu)-so delicious! Our favorite server Eva made our evening smooth & entertaining. Jeremy (runner/busser) was also friendly & efficient. A great evening!

The only damper on the evening was when a woman slip and fell on water spilt on the floor by one of the wait staff
I got up and told the people up front and the seemed a bit unconcerned
The other couple with the lady who fell left the restaurant without eating.
Staff should have first wiped up spilled water and second showed some concern

Lovely evening with friends. Food portions were generous and tasty. Macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi was flaky and cooked to perfection. Eggplant stack was as good as in past visits.

We visit Fabiani’s every year and they never fail to please. The food was delicious as always and the service was perfect. If it were just a little less noisy I would have given it 5 stars. It was happy hour and the people at the small bar were indeed happy. All in all a very pleasant meal.

Disappointing. Reasonable prices but not a lot of presentation effort. Pretty basic, nothing special flavor wise. Room gets loud and service was slow getting to us. Good place to go in for quick meal, no frills. Wine was horrible and expensive for what it was. The caprese salad was yummy though.

Dinner was delicious. My husband and I shared the osso bucco; he ate the meat and I had the risotto which was the best I have ever had! It was very noisy and difficult to visit with the others at our table. It took awhile to get our check but on the whole we had an enjoyable experience.

We were a party of six. We ordered our meals and when they finally came 2 arrived, then the next 3 arrived but the 6th did not arrive. The first two dishes were hot, the next 3 were cold so I told our waiter. He whisked 2 away and returned 7 minutes later with reheated spaghetti and micro waved pizza. The 6th dish still hadn’t arrived. When the pizza was re-made the last dish arrived and it was cold. We all ate at different times- some hot but the rest cold. We are all unimpressed......

We always try to eat at Fabiani’s when we’re in Maui to get a reminder of how delicious Italian food should taste! Excellent Caesar salad and incredible carbonara, the al dente pasta was perfect!

Food was ok but service was slow. I don't understand why waiters try to memorize the order if they then forget parts of it? The house salad with candied macadamia nuts contained none and when we asked were told the kitchen had run out. The appetizer we ordered never came and when we ordered a second glass of wine when the main courses were served they sat on the bar until my wife actually walked over, took them and brought them to our table. Young lady who was seating, pouring water, answering the phone and coordinating take out orders was doing a bang on job. She deserves a raise?

Although others in the tables around us enjoyed their meals, we both had the worst Spaghetti Carbonara I have ever had. We expected it to be in the American norm of creamy sauce (vs Italian egg) this was very very runny with no substance at all and no taste Even the waiter agreed that was not the way it was supposed to be. Being brave, when we went to the Fabiani's in Kihei last night, my wife tried the same item and it was terrific. They even gave me some to try with my veal piccatta which was also very good

Noise level was very loud. What's with all these restaurants and all the hard surfaces ? Sounds just bounce from wall to wall ceiling to floor. Pasta could have been cooked a little more. Staff was attentive, but took a while to find us. Came here because Kihei store was really loud!

Amazing food - family atmosphere. Small but great wine list from Italy. Lorenzos Pasta and ravioli are great! Red Velvet cake was the best dessert in Maui! totally worth a meal here!

Since my first visit I have been very impressed with this restaurant. The food is consistently good. The staff caring professional and attentive. I eat out seven night's a week and often a Fabiano's twice a week. I very very secure in recommending this restaurant. It is the perfect upper middle neighborhood establishment

This place was acceptable but I won't be heading back here in a hurry. I think of this as more-or-less Olive Garden quality of Italian food.

We had made a reservation for two via open table. Arrived on time. Was offered a table on the sidewalk or at the bar. We said we would wait for a table. The “manager” seemed so put out, couldn’t crack a smile. We were given comp dessert, and the wait person was excellent as was the catch of the day, but we seemed to be an inconvenience to the man in the grey shirt. Have been coming to both Fabiani’s for years, may rethink dining here in future.

Slowest service I have ever experienced. From getting drinks to bread to ordering it was a wait. The irony was that it wasn’t busy. Have been going there for years and the service has continued to deteriorate to the point will I will not go back.
