“Amazing carbonara....”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

One of the top 3 carbonara I ever had! Nice service, great ambience and food! I suggest it for sure but make sure you call to check if they are open, we went second time on a Saturday but it was closed.

“Best Carbonara in South East Asia!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

My girlfriend and I came here last year in koh Phangan and loved it so much we couldn't wait to visit again..

Fabio's itself is a small and intimate restaurant with a relaxed dining atmosphere. the walls are lined with old wine bottles and traditional italian decor... the place literally takes you into another world!

In terms of service, Fabio (the man himself) is more than happy to look after your every need... he somehow overheard us talking about sharing two mains, and served them to us on 2 different plates so we didn't have to fight over who got more! This is something we have NEVER experienced in a restaurant and it really impressed us. Our drinks were never empty either!

The Chefs in the kitchen deserve more than just a mention. Every bite was like an artwork and we savoured every single bit of it. We started an antipasto platter that was big enough to share between 4 or 5 people easily. For second course we shared the outstanding carbonara... a parcel of fettucine, wrapped in bacon and baked in the oven to create a crispy outer layer - IT WAS DELICIOUS! I could eat it every day. Then came the shared duck that was tender and juicy and not too fatty.

overall, a really great restaurant and I'm surprised it's not No. 1... hopefully we might make another trip to Fabio's in the not too distant future.

“Fantastic restaurant”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Everthing about this establishment shows care and attention. Id recommend it to anyone that likes Italian meals with a twist. Keep in mind their is nothing Thai about this place which for me was a nice change after a month travelling around Thailand.
Try the seafood pasta, it has a large amount of shellfish and is very creative.
I suggest if you like a pizza a certain way you tell the owner when he takes you order because he is very helpful and genuine.

Thanks Fabio for two great meals!

“Best Italian”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

The food here is amazing! After eating at Fabios I can safely say the man has ruined all other carbonara for me with the amazing taste of his version. Your meals is topped off with a free dessert.

One thing I would recommend is try to book if you can. The owner is not only the chef but also the waitstaff. It is only a small establishment and he runs around like crazy trying to please guests. Don't be offended if you arrive without a booking and he says no, he is simply not taking on more than he can handle.
