We proudly offer quick service and affordable quality ingredients.
Went to a play had dinner before parking was convenient and had a great dinner service was great everyone was friendly
Delicious food... Everything we ordered was wonderful. We chose to sit inside because of the heat but it was actually very hot indoors. We asked if we could sit outside instead but it was full. Our waitress turned the AC on and we were comfortable in about 15 minutes. Next time we will probably sit outside because the inside is quite stuffy, especially as the reservations arrive and the place fill up. Perfect choice before Phantom of the Opera. We were all pleased and happy 🙂
The food here is wonderful! Large salads to share, delicious calamari and Homemade pasta! Yummy!!! The service was a little slow however. Had to ask twice to refill water glasses, but one of our two wait staff was very friendly. The outside patio has ambience and heaters on a chilly night.
We had a 6:00 reservation before an 8:00 show at the Pantages and were able to eat & walk 2 blocks in plenty of time.
Fabulous food and amazing service. Highly recommend for a group or intimate dinner.
Thanks for taking the time to give us such wonderful feedback!
Great service. We had tickets for a show and advised the hostess upon arrival. Food arrived super fast. We even had time for a dessert...
Thanks for the lovely feedback! Glad you also enjoyed dessert. Hope you had fun at the show too!!
The food was just okay, the service was not great. The waiter never refilled glasses or asked if our meal was okay. For the price, I expected fantastic food and bigger portions. I also thought it was weird that they added on a 3% service fee automatically because they said the cost of running a restaurant was expensive. Strange. The ambience was good, I just wish everything else was.
Sometimes we don't perform to our highest standards when we get busy and we are working on improving that. As for the service fee, it was implemented to help offset some increased costs imposed by the state of California, but we are happy to announce it will be removed by July.
Great food and service. Perfect for before or after a show.
Hope you enjoyed the show as well! Grazie!!
The appetizer specials were very good for the 3 of us. The main courses for all of us were different pastas and all were just okay. I ordered lasagna, another person ordered gnocchi with a pesto sauce and third person ordered ziti with marinara sauce. We skipped dessert.
Thanks for the feedback Michael. We will we keep what you said in mind as we continue to strive to provide quality food and service!
We have been coming to Fabiolus for years before heading to the Hollywood Pantages to see a show. Great food. Fine service. All A-1.
Thanks for the detailed feedback Bob!
Love Fabiolus Cucina! We go every time before a Pantages show. Owner is awesome as are the waiters!! Highly recommend!
Hi Sheryl, thanks for sharing this with the OpenTable community!
Prompt service, good place to go before seeing a show at the Pantages.
Thanks for the feedback Leah... hope you enjoyed the show too!
Food and service were great as usual, and we were able to leave on time to catch the theatre.
We love our regulars! Thanks for the feedback : )
My wife and I ate at Fabiola’s Cucina before we went to see a show at the Pantages Theater. We had never tried this place before and we were so impressed with the Service and the food. We were celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary and we felt that Fabiolus Cucina was a great part of evening!
So happy that you chose our restaurant to celebrate such a special occasion!
Food was amazing however the service was one of the worst I’ve ever experienced.
Thanks for the feedback, we will discuss the service issues and adjust accordingly.
Fabiolus is our go-to spot for before or after a show at the Pantages. The dishes are always beautifully prepared and the service is great.
Lorraine, so glad you took the time to let us know!
Very attentive waitstaff. Food very good and hot when brought out which is important to me.
Thanks for the feedback Meredith!
Unassuming from the front, large covered open space behind a smaller inside restaurant space. Service was very polite, food came out very promptly, god for theater goers. Very tasty meal!
Thanks for the review Paola!
If your looking for dinner before a show at the Pantages this is great walking distance.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Fabiolus Cucina. We arrived on time for our 5:30 reservation and were seated promptly out on the patio. We were attended to right away for our drinks order. However, as the night rolled on and they got busy, they were less attentive. The food was delicious and served in ample portions. This is a great location with easy walk to the Pantages (our destination) or the Palladium (right across the street). We'll definitely return but probably not on a Friday or Saturday night.
Jean, we are carefully reviewing your feedback to help improve the guest experience! Thanks for taking the time to let us know!
This is a great place to go before a show at the Pantages or other theatres in central Hollywood. There is free parking behind the restaurant (enter on Leland) and you can leave the car there during the show. Just make sure you get the gate code before you leave if you are going to a late show...they lock the lot. A good diverse Italian menu, fairly priced for the area...indoor and sheltered outdoor seating. enjoy!
Jim, thank you for sharing! Happy to serve you : )
Any time we head to Hollywood for dinner, this is a great choice. Food always very tasty.
Alex, it was our pleasure!
I love this place! It’s our go-to before the Pantages!
Happy to be your go-to place before shows Nikki! Thanks for the kind feedback : )
I enjoyed eating outside in the Patio. While it was cool the feel and energy was warming. I loved the Risotto Primavera and the Sangria! Can't wait to come back and try other items. Thank you, Cheryl
Cheryl, we are so happy to read your feedback! It was very kind of you : )
I’ve been to this place 3 or 4 times in the last few months and would ordinarily give it an5-star review. However, we didn’t have a great experience this last time. It was much busier than normal (every reservation I’ve had has been for 5:45 on a Saturday). Normally it’s pretty dead when we arrive, but is fairly crowded when we leave. This time it was packed, and what is normally a 1 hour experience was over 90 minutes. I think they were understaffed. We waited close to 20 minutes from finishing our salad for our one little pizza as our entree to arrive. My credit card was out of my possession for about 10 minutes. The food was excellent, as always. It was also so noisy this visit that I could hardly hear my dinner companion.
Thanks for the feedback Stephanie! We'll be more mindful in the future when handling busy nights. Sometimes, there are circumstances out of our control but we'll try to improve service as best as we can!
We had a very nice dinner. Two in the party had lasagna and one had spinach ravioli. Everyone loved their meals.
Thanks for the feedback, happy to hear you had a positive experience!
Just like eating st home except we didn’t have to cook! Friendly place with excellent wait staff - very efficient and great way to relax before the show.
So happy to read a review like this George! Thanks for sharing : )
I've been dining here for about 8 years before heading to the Pantages. Fine food, great service. I highly recommend Fabiolus Cucina.
Thanks for the feedback Bob! Happy to have you as a regular : )
The food here is delicious! They have a bit of everything. From the appetizers to the main course to dessert and coffee...you can’t go wrong!
Thanks for the feedback Ryan! It makes us happy to hear that everything pleased you : )
Service was great and food was delicious. Only draw back from ambiance was the plastic sheeting around the outside. Other than that, our experience was great.
Thank you for letting us know Shari. We will work to enhance the ambiance!
Great food, loved the limoncello but the service was understaffed.
Thanks for the feedback! We'll do our best to improve the guest experience for when we get busy
It's always a treat to go to Fabiolus Cucina! We love the place!
Thank you for the lovely feedback Alexandra!
Good food. Our waiter took his time to come to our table and when he did he wanted to take our drink and food order at the same time I don’t understand why we had 6:30 Friday night dinner the restaurant wasn’t busy and only saw him again when he brought us our check.
Thanks for the feedback Patsay. Sorry you had a less than excellent experience with service. We will be sure to monitor the interactions our servers have with the tables!
The staff are very nice, the food is great and their parking is very reasonable! I've been there twice now and have very much enjoyed myself!
Elizabeth, thank you so much for sharing your positive experience! Happy to have you back!
Theatre night, food was wonderful and HOT!
We love getting feedback like this - thanks for sharing!
Family of 6 age 8-67 - had a great time before the show.
George, we strive to be a family-friendly establishment and we are happy to hear you approve!
We always go to Fabiolus before a show at the Pantages. Easy, inexpensive parking. The food is good, and the same waiters every time who are good (although 2 waiters work the whole room which is pretty nutty but they do a good job). We will go back next show!
Thank you for sharing Kerri! We are happy to hear that you will come back for the next show : )
Excellent food and Great atmosphere. Will definitely be going back again
Thanks for the feedback!
For years, I have had dinner at Fabiolus before going to the Pantages. Great food and service. Have never been disappointed. Thank you, Fabiolus.
Bob, we would like to thank you for coming back. Your feedback is much appreciated!
ALWAYS a overall great dining experience
Glad you approve Thomas!
They were very nice, but the food is not what it used to be.
Thanks for the feedback. We wish you could be more specific on what you used to like so we can consider it when updating our menus and specials.
