We had our first small group dinner out at Fabiolus Cucina on Saturday evening. They've done a fantastic job in setting up a a beautiful outdoor area for dining. Very nicely lit and beautiful garden wall by the rear entrance. We especially enjoyed the calamariti and bruschetta for apps, and I had a perfect chicken parm for dinner. Would go again.

It was good. Service was traditional Italian service. Enjoy your meal and sit for a bit. Big portions. A bit on the pricey side.

What a great restaurant! Nice sheltered outdoor area with great lighting and ambiance. Our waiter was very nice and the food was "fabiolus"! I had the penne vodka, which was delicious. The soup of the day (dairy-free cream of cauliflower) was wonderful as well. We will be back!

We have eaten there many times but not since COVID
The tables were apart and all employees had on masks. You could eat inside or out, we chose inside since it looked like rain

This restaurant is a real find. The menu is pretty extensive with lots of choices. All four of us enjoyed our meals, which were plentiful and reasonably priced. Service was excellent - friendly and efficient. It was a quick two block walk to the Pantages Theatre, and the best part was that we were able to leave our car in the parking lot. Since it was a Sunday, there was no charge for parking. On other days, the charge is only $7 to leave the car while you attend the theatre. Of course, if you're just dining there, it's free. This will be our go-to restaurant when we drive in to the Pantages.

We sat for 10 min before someone visited our table to bring us water. When waters were brought they asked abruptly what we wanted to eat. I asked for recommendations & the server acted like it was a stupid question & told me I needed to decide what I liked.

My daughter had shrimp pesto gnocchi. The pesto sauce was great, the gnocchi was tender, but the shrimp was overcooked and tough.

I had the vodka pesto. It was not great. The sauce was a strange, salmon color & was quite sour. My shrimp was also overcooked & tough.

For the price it was “ fine” but I wouldn’t seek it out or go back.

Outside is REALLY cold as there are gaps in the plastic. The lighting inside was HARSH and should be set to a mood lighting. No specials were mentioned. We noticed the Pasta, Salad and glass of wine special before a show after we ordered from another table. Would have loved that option.

This is place we visit often
Management and staff upon finding that two of us in the party of three, we were recently engaged took not one, but both bottles of wine off the bill as a gift!!!

Totally shocked us.

Doesn’t get better then that.

That generous gesture says it all!!!

Many thanks and see you again very soon
