We had another great dinner. Jeb, one of the owners, came to our table and asked how everything was. He, along with our waiter were very attentive and friendly. The food was great, calamari, baked rig, meatballs, etc. We will definitely be back.

This has quickly become my favorite Italian restaurant. They have fresh home made pasta as well as gf and veggie options. They have amazing dishes like the meatballs with polenta. But most importantly to me, they have the best linguine with white clam sauce. My grandparents used to make linguine and clam sauce like this for special occasions. Well, and I almost feel guilty saying this but, Fazzini's is better! Best Italian food I've had in years. I can't speak highly enough of the food here. Very clean and nicely renovated space. All the staff were quite friendly. But really the food is the star of the show here. If you like authentic Italian this place is a must try.

The food was delicious as always but the service was very slow. Our server was nice but he was hardly around. We had to flag down another person to get a take away box.

Food was delicious. Service fair. A little on the expensive side. Considering the pasta dishes are a bit highly priced, they could at least come with a salad. We split a small salad for $5 and it definitely should've come with the meal. So many other Italian places come with all you can eat salad it really was a bit of a turn off to not at least come with a side salad.

This was our first visit to Fazzini's. The service was exceptional, easily the best I've experienced in the Baltimore area. The bean soup was hearty and the cream of crab soup was creamy. Sausage ravioli and chicken francaise were savory and filling. Servings were very ample, although we somehow found room for chocolate lava cake. Highly recommended. Make a reservation since they're popular and busy!

I was served the wrong dish. I ordered lasagna, but got eggplant parm. I didn't say anything as I didn't want to raise a fuss while dining with another couple. I didn't want to hold up everyone's meal but,
I don't like eggplant!
Suffered through half of the dish.

We have never been disappointed. A 25 minute drive for us but well worth it.

We ate outside on an very attractive patio. Since the restaurant is on a main highway, there was some traffic noise. We had a very pleasant waitress. Food was good, probably not exceptional. Price was about right for the area.

2 person table was slightly crowded when food and drinks arrived, but wait staff did a good job of clearing as the meal progressed. Wait staff was clearly educated on the menu. Will definitely return.

Service was satisfactory to good, but the food didn't quite measure up. I had the specialty lasagna, and it seemed that the chef forgot some steps in the layering. The ground beef was dry, and it fell out from between the pasta layers. Next time I'll get the bronzini.

Homemade lasagna was just like my Nana used to make. The noodles were so good, and the flavors authentic. My friend had the shrimp scampi with homemade fettucini and loved it. The bread is delicious too. It's our new Italian go-to.

The food and the service work great. Unfortunately, it took forever to get our food. They told us they were out of meatballs which is strange at an Italian restaurant and they needed to make more and then they told us that our kids pizza had burned which is also strange for an Italian restaurant. Something was not clicking for them that night in the kitchen. When the food did arrive though it was very good and they were certainly apologetic about how long it took and gave us a free dessert.

Veal Parmesan was good. a lot of veal, but also a lot of breading. The scallops in the scallop risotto dish was excellent. Very nice a sweet. Our server, Joey, was excellent. Basically this is a "middle of the road" Italian restaurant. Can not compare with Cafe Troia, Carlo's Bistro or Liberatore's.
