Fabio Cucina Italiana
Throughout his formative years in Rome, Italy and in NY, he has perfected signature dishes such as FETTUCINE alla Fabio, made with porcini mushrooms and a delicate sauce that enhances the woody taste of the mushroom without overpowering the palate, and RISOTTO Crema di scampi, made with the freshest fish and lightest of creams.
Chef Chicco personally selects his produce and vegetables directly from the market daily, as he wants to insure top quality and freshness of all his ingredients. The same applies to the pasta dishes - all are homemade and great attention is paid to preparation and detail. He will also go out of his way to prepare dishes upon request.
Exceptional business dining experience. Service was top notch, they were able to accommodate our request for a quiet seating area by letting us use their section in the back. The chef came by to greet us and tell us about his history. He handpicks his ingredients daily. The food was impeccable. The two pasta dishes were amazing: we had the ravioli special and the fettuccini dish that the chef made in front of our table and finished inside a big wheel of cheese. Veal was incredible, as was the Chianti wine. Tiramisu was delicious. We will be back! Five stars! And all the staff and chef were incredibly gracious and went out of their way to make sure we were happy.
Went there for a birthday lunch celebration. Both food and service was great! A little pricy for lunch and they charged us for the dessert - I simply asked if they do "something" special for birthday celebration. So the charge for that "something" on the bill was not expected... but overall good food and good service!
This was our second time dining at Fabio Cucina and it did not disappoint! Delicious food and really wonderful service! We will definitely be coming back again!
I chose this restaurant for it's proximity to an event we were attending later in the evening and for the reviews the food received. The setting was very pleasant as was the very professional waitstaff. The calamari appetizer was good and the chicken (pollo a modo mio) was delicious. The chef's pasta dish needed more flavor in my opinion. Word of warning: the prices for many items are quite a bit higher than they are online.
The food was outstanding. The chef/owner came out to see us impromptu. The ambiance is very subdued and warm. It was very quiet as well. They have lots of fabric to absorb sound. Service was spot on as well.
The food really stood out.
Club Bonafide next door as well. This is a great place to go for dinner before listening to some music.
The service os impeccable, the food delicious and the menu filled with fan favorites. Couldn’t have enjoyed it more and can’t wait to go back.
We had burratta, fried chick peas and grilled artichokes combo appetizer. It was phenomenal. Homemade pasta and gnocchi for dinner was awesome. Chef came out and talked to us. He added some homemade strawberry gelato to our chocolate cake dessert order. It was amazing. It was held on to the plate with a dallup of the creamiest cannoli filling you can imagine. Cake was great too. I imagine the cannolis are amazing too as the filling seemed like cream.
Food was great from the appetizers, to the pastas to the entrees. Service was excellent and chef came out personally not only to give us a comprehensive review of the menu and specials, but to also say he would make anything Italian that we wanted if we didn't see it on the menu. It was my daughter's birthday and the chef made it an even more special occasion, and topped it off with desserts on the house. Would definitely go back and recommend!
A gem in midtown Manhattan that will never disappoint you. I make sure to dine here every time I visit my daughter in NYC. Chef Chicco is outstanding and the service is superb. You will not find better Italian cuisine in NYC. I highly recommend it.
Outstanding, fresh dishes and friendly service!
The food is delicious and the service is outstanding. Doesn’t that sound like the perfect place to go for lunch?
I have a wonderful friend who is 99 years old and this is his favorite lunch spot. We love the food and our host genuinely loves making our lunch experience a special one. I hope we will have many more lunches at Fabio.
The food was very good it was a creative Italian menu we came at a slow time and unfortunately for us we were seared very quickly and did not get time to relax and enjoy thr restaurant
Staff was very friendly. We arrived 30 min early for our reservation and they were able to accommodate us without any wait. Food was amazing.
Lunch is really reasonable for the quality of their food.
Delicious food. Excellent attentive service!
As a native new Yorker but live in NORTH CAROLINA now I come to celebrate my birthday back here! I always eat at Fabio’s as it’s just perfect and I hate leaving the restaurant as the people are amazing! Thanks for my beautiful birthday the other day on August 15🥰 see u again during the holidays and of course my birthday......Nobody does it better than Fabio’s and I’m picky because I’m Italian 😊
What a gem. Discovered this from an OpenTable search and didn’t disappoint. Excellent food, unobtrusive but well trained service. Actually able to have a conversation. Can’t wait to go back.
Love this place! Have been here half a dozen times and will keep coming back. One of the best, most consistent local Italian places with a really nice feel.
Amazing food and staff!
Lovely restaurant, super comfortable chairs, delicious food
We love Fabio Cucina -- we just took friends from London there and they loved it, too! We had a great time. Delicious food, charming setting, perfect service! Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful dinner here. The air conditioning was out but they had fans going in the people there were more than accommodating. The food was more than delicious and the complimentary dessert was a pleasant surprise. Would definitely recommend.
Pleasantly surprised. Fell in love with the food. I was so impressed with the place that I'd recommend to all. Excellent service, food, ambiance, location. What else can I say other than go there and taste the experience.
One word - perfect! Everything was absolutely amazing - the food, the staff... and the chef coming out to greet the guests and chat with them was also a nice touch. Thank you for helping to make my BDay dinner even more memorable! Definitely will be back, and definitely recommend this place!
Impeccable service! Highly recommend!
Meager portions, extremely high prices for that quality presented and food that tastes no better than your local pizzeria...
Meeting friends in the city for a birthday. Food was fabulous and service impeccable! Nice quiet place to actually talk- hard to find nowadays!
Great neighborhood place with friendly and knowledgeable servers happy to accommodate customizations of dishes. Food quality is excellent and the place is cool and elegant inside without pretension. Excellent pasta and seafood. It’s become a regular place for us when we are in NYC.
Absolutely amazing dinner. The quality of service, food and atmosphere was superb. From appetizer to main course to dessert the meal was outstanding. My wife and I had a great conversation with the chef. The experience had a small neighbor feel with authentic Italian flare. I highly recommend eating here.
Great food and atmosphere, but was not happy when our table was moved about 10 minutes after being seated to accommodate another group.
Fantastic Food. Warm service and atmosphere. You can tell the chef and employees really care about giving people the best experience possible.
One of the best Italian restaurants in NY City!!! Went there for the first time last night with a party of 4 and we all fought as to who had the best meal!! Appetizers were terrific (even the salad) and the Pasta courses unbelievably wonderful...ambiance was lovely and service superb! What more could one ask for? Accept meeting the Chef - oh yes he even came over twice to chat with us!!
Absolutely superb Italian food with the most charming and gracious service.
4 of us had dinner for the first time @ Fabios last weekend.
The ambiance was very nice and had the additional charm of a guitarist and singer.
The music was just right including the volume!
Service was excellent with the staff being very helpful down to the smallest details.
Our meals were very tasty, especially the pasta dishes.
All in all, a lovely evening!
Only downside was the dearth of diners-we hope they will not be closing anytime soon.
Everything was wonderful! I dine out frequently, and Fabio Cucina Italiana was a real treat. From the terrific waiter we had, to every course, our dinner was so enjoyable. The chef is a real talent and the food was so fresh, beautifully prepared and presented - just delicious. Starting with the fresh bread and tapenade, to an outstanding buratta appetizer and the sea scallops for an entree, couldn't have asked for better. My guests also raved about their dishes... and we all loved the wine. Great quality and a generous pour. Looking forward to going back soon!
We had a wonderful dinner highlighted by the warm and attentive service.
Excellent food and service. Would definitely recommend to friends or family. Hoe to be back next time we’re in nyc.
Such a great meal!
food and atention were perfect I would go again soon
