Fausto at the CAC
Flavors play together like a well conducted symphony. We had Beef cheeks, Lamb, and Scallops and all were excellent in their own way. Cannot say which one is best!
Had squash soup which was amazing.
The desserts were probably the best I’ve had in Cincinnati!!
Fabulous.... as always! Highly recommend.
the linguine with clams had sand in it; smoked salmon tartan was on a toast.... Reservations made on Open Table initially were not recognized and later acknowledged as a mistake....
Everything about our dining experience was exceptional. We were warmly greeted by Austin and Chef Tony came out to chat and ask if we enjoyed our meal. Food was exceptional with high quality, locally sourced produce. And did I mention the cocktails?! A true Cincinnati gem! If you haven’t been, get there!! The Ferrari Brothers are a gift!
Fausto was fabulous! The menu is interesting and the fare is delicious. And you see many people you know. I enjoy seeing the unforgettable art at the CAC after dining.
We had the 3 course meals and everything was excellent. Portion size was perfect, seasoning on all the dishes was on point, cocktails were delicious. Highly recommend one of the best meals I have had in recent memory.
Thank you so much for the love you two! It was great to have you in to celebrate! We can't wait to have you back for another meal (or anniversary at that)!
Perhaps the nicest addition to the downtown Cincinnati dining scene in years.
Great place to dine before a show! Wonderful service!
We had a brilliant experience. It is the perfect location before an event at the Aronoff. The ambiance was relaxed and vibrant, surrounded by art. The food was flawless. Each course better than the last. We enjoyed our waiter Dan and enjoyed meeting the chef, Tony. The chef took such care on our soup and salad. The main course we had lamb, spectacular and scallops, delicious. Paired it all with a highly recommended ROSE made by the brothers. Please visit, it will be well worth it.
Delicious! 3 course meal very good value. Very attentive wait staff. We will return.
Great although I was the only one there on a Monday. Hope they can make it cos the food was wonderful!
Very nice experience! Enjoyed our meal.
Very creative and tasty menu.
Although the menu is small every dish was taken to its best place.
Thanks Fausto’s! Looking forward to our next experience with you.
This was our first dinner experience at Fausto. We wanted a light meal before a jazz performance and Fausto was perfect for our needs. The selection of wines by the glass was varied. The risotto (my husband) and scallops (me) were delicious and perfectly prepared and presented. I had to have the strawberry shortcake to take me from dinner to jazz and was so glad I did. It satisfied my sweet tooth. The ambiance was chic and comfortable, just as we like it. The tables were full at 7:00 pm and I understand why: everything about the experience was delightful and all the guests appeared delighted as well. I highly recommend Fausto.
This addition to downtown dining is a real winner. The menu is creative and delicious. The service is first-class. The ambiance is comfortable contemporary chic. It is a unique and welcoming place to meet for a business or social lunch.
First visit to Fausto. Overall food was good but one in our party has diet restrictions and ordered 2 eggs scambled and was charged $12!!!!! Come on Fausto- you bought 3 dozen organic eggs for what you charged him for 2! Good gazpacho and farro salad but not wild about the baked eggs- sort of drowning in sauce and pesto. Service was good- we sat outside so always good when dining alfresco. Would probably return for lunch but not so much for a $6 egg.
Great food and service. An exciting new restaurant addition to the city
Had a fabulous time. The food and service was impeccable. I can’t wait to return.
Food and service were both very good. Surprised at the speed for the dishes at lunchtime (pleasantly). Quick yet not rushed. Food looked great and tasted excellent. Wide variety of dishes. Also lots of great options for vegetarians as well. Definitely will return.
Our lunch was fabulous! My friend had the avocado toast and I had the off sandwich. I want to go back again and again to try everything on the menu!
Restaurant opened less than a month ago. Extremely good food and service. Very happy we chose to dine here.
Great restaurant. I really liked the wine and food. I recommend for dinner. I will go back.
The menu and quality of the food at Fausto surpassed anything I was expecting from a museum associated cafe. I didn't know it was open for dinner but I would seriously consider going prior to an event at the Aronoff or other location downtown.
A wonderful lunch with a friend. Beautiful space, excellent service and fresh, delicious food.
Great experience! Small menu where every dish is cooked perfectly and prepared from mostly local, carefully chosen produce. Going back tonight!
A delightful restaurant in the Contemporary Art Museum that fits the space very well.
Great service and the food and atmosphere were really great. What is especially astonishing was that they had only been open for a few days and the food and service was spectacular.
What a great addition to the city!
Incredible experience - stunning 3 course journey, beautifully crafted cocktails and the greatest wine list, friendly service, playful playlist - all perfectly pairing with the museums ambiance. This is the spot for any occasion - serving breakfast, lunch and dinner - #1 on my list. Bravo.
Damian our waiter was outstanding. He was very attentive and very personalable. We would request again.
This fits perfectly at the CAC. The menu is light and fresh and different and definitely a great addition to downtown dining.
Impeccable attention to detail, creative food and cocktail menu. Beautifully crafted wine list. But would I would expect nothing less from the Ferrari brothers. Congratulations on adding another fine venue to the Cincinnati scene.
My colleague and I went out for lunch. The food is absolutely stunning and delicious. Such a good vibe all around and great service. You can go to Fausto for a work lunch or a date night. A foodie’s dream. ... do yourself a favor and get the honey latte. 💯
Great for a quick business lunch— will go back just for the tuna sandwich
Excited to have a restaurant in Cincinnati with fresh, local food and an emphasis on quality. Great atmosphere for a business lunch or casually picking up a delicious meal and cup of coffee.
Thanks for the love!!
Our group had several dishes, all of which were delicious. The restaurant is casual and comfortable. It was a great experience. I cannot wait to wine and dine there again.
Thank you for the love benjamin!! We cant wait to have you back!
