I dined at fachini for my son’s birthday dinner. The food and service were both great. I highly recommend the caesar salad, calimari fritti, and 100 layer lasagna. The service from our server was great, with him giving us space when we wanted it but being there to serve when needed. He was too-notch!
We had a great meal—with the exception of a glass of wine being spilled on me by the waiter. The waiter was very helpful, getting us extra napkins and soda water. However the manager, Tina, was a different story. Tina adjusted nothing on our bill, even though we purchased a bottle of wine and did not even get to drink it all. My espresso had wine in it, yet I was still charged for it.
To make wounds worse, when I asked to speak to her for a second time on the way out she told me she had compensated me because she gave me her business card for any “dry cleaning issues.” This is unbelievable treatment from a manager. I really enjoyed my meal, but sadly I will not be returning after the way the manager treated my family. Fachini—our waiter was excellent, but your manager was less than helpful. I recommend addressing this issue if you expect to cater to the Highland Park crowd. All of our longstanding restaurants promote service from the top down.
Great service. Great Food
Francisco is the best!
Literally the best food around. Have tried most of the pastas and they are all traditional dishes yet have a unique twist that absolutely compliments each one. AMAZING. The 100 layer lasagna is life changing. Just do it, make the reservation.
Food is always a phenomenal. The staff goes above and beyond to make me feel like a vip every time I’m in there. The GM Brittni is warm, welcoming and knowledgeable. 10/10
I went the Resturant before and I ordered some same dishes, the taste were big different.
Took my fiancé here for her birthday. It is a great birthday spot, romantic and a place to be seen. All waiters were very attentive and top-notch.
We had the calamari for appetizers, 100 layer lasagna for entree (shared by both of us), then tiramisu cake for dessert.
Great service, ambience, decor, and most importantly, food. Great Manhattans, too.
Great atmosphere!. Excellent food! Absolutely great service! Highly recommend.
Great restaurant in Highland park village.. For basic Italian food it's not cheap.. Atmosphere is fantastic.
Brilliant from start to finish! Impeccable and approachable service, delicious food and gorgeous presentations.
The food was delicious ! I love the complimentary appetizer too!
Love the ambiance and food fantastic. Love the saffron in tomato sauce with mussels.
Dinner menu is kind of limited compared to other restaurants but everything we had was very good. Staff and service were excellent. Wine selection was very good.
The food was way too salty.
Amazing food & vibes - super fancy & classy
Best calamari & peppercorn crusted steak we’ve ever had!
This place is spectacular! We went for a date night and we were blown away by everything. Reid, our server, gave excellent recommendations and everything was delicious! Fun atmosphere- great decor, mood lighting and the whole staff is smiling. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Love it!!! Great food. Great service. Great location. Easily one of my favorites in Dallas.
Love the staff! Love my waiter. Girl at front desk Sabrina was wondering. My favorite manger in Dallas
Fantastic food. Very busy and loud, but worth the wait and noise.
The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant.
The music was somewhat loud for us but everything else was spot on! Food was wonderful. Service was perfect and we like the coziness of the restaurant including the bar area.
We will definitely go back
The options for my wife who is a vegetarian were not good for an Italian format. Her pasta was dry and tasteless.
Loved the ambiance-vintage with modern updates. Not just another contemporary and noisy restaurant. Small and intimate space. Loved the background music.
Food very good. We enjoyed the gratis appetizers before dinner. Would definitely return.
Enjoyed dinner here last night. Only negative was the music which was too loud. I mentioned this to the manager and she lowered it.
Waiter was rude - we were celebrating 2 birthdays and had presented the check before offering dessert. The food was great would love to come back but bc of the waiter will think before rebooking
Wonderful food and service but the noise level is unbearable.
Such a fine eating experience ruined by the noise level beyond most all restaurants.
Food and service were wonderful. Music didn’t match the ambiance, though, and was distracting.
Food was very good, service excellent. Noise level unbearable. Not likely to return
My husband and I were celebrating our 14th Weeding Anniversary. The service was amazing. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the special drinks and food.
Food is always very good here. It is loud even when the place is only half full as the music is quite loud. Service last night was unexpectedly slow but still good.
I found the ambience to be very nice. The space was well done and our seating was perfect. There was no cocktail menu,but they prepared a nice drink to my wife’s specifications. I ordered a glass of red wine, but unfortunately it was way to warm. The wine list was good and the bottle I ordered with dinner was great. The flavor of the appetizers were good, but the presentation was poor. Our main courses were great and well presented. The veal chop served with marinara was beautiful. The only real negative as the server. He was awkward and not up to the level of service one would expect at such a nice place.
Went for the birthday dinner for my wife. Sergio was our server and did a terrific job with recommendations.
The service was excellent, attentive and timely. The food was exceptional, the kitchen really knows how to blend and highlight the flavors and features ingredients of each dish.
We had our entrees served family style which was an excellent way to experience the variety in the preparation.
Very enjoyable time overall.
Get the lasagna you will not regret. The Tiramisu also to die for.
Always an excellent experience. Great food and service.
Great service. Perfect. Will be returning
Our first visit was excellent on all counts. Second was complete opposite. Friends are sharing the same with me. Hope they get this beautiful restaurant back on track. Bad experience this last time.
We love this restaurant. The food is wonderful. The wait staff varies on quality. We have had several very good and personable waiters in past visits. This time we did not.
