This is the best Italian restaurant in the Western Cape. Has that real Italian Pizzeria feel with it's decor and also with its location in a little side street close to the ocean. Food is well priced and portions are great. We always feel we are in Italy when eating here. The owner is always present and very helpful. This restaurant is a must when in Hermanus.

There's something comforting about going back to your favourite local restaurant and the same staff are there to greet you every time. The homemade lasagna, cannelloni, alfredo pasta etc are absolutely delicious. This is Italian food at its best. Make a reservation as the restaurant is often fully booked.

Found this place by accident when I shot down Peters Lane in Hermanus looking for a parking spot to go to another restaurant. The décor is decidedly Italian and we had a great waitress who likened upon our accent. We left it up to her to bring us the most popular pizza on the menu along with a good quality red and we weren't disappointed. Reasonably priced with a cozy atmosphere we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this little restaurant.

When you want Italian food, great service and food to die for "so to speak" then Fabio's is the one and only. Set in a alley close to the ocean the atmosphere is unmistakable Italiano.

When ordering "Gorgonzola, Funghi e Spek - Pizza" try it with figs ;)

What can I say - excellent food, excellent waitress!! Well done! We will definitely be back. Even the kids (7 years old) said that they want to come back.
