When an Italian says 'it is just like what mum makes' it has to be good!! Yes my husband is of Italian descent and he thought it was as good as 'mum' makes. It was lovely and quaint and food good. Very reasonably priced. Would recommend

Our guest house recommended Fabios when we expressed a desire to eat at an Italian style restaurant. Upon arriving we were immediately transported back to fond memories of trips to Italy. Warmth and hospitality greets you at once, the decor feels right - mainly Mediterranean feel with a little local flair. Extensive menu and some authentic Italian alcohol on wine menu. The pizza bases were not the kind I really like - I personally found them a bit dense and pastry-like, but the toppings were delicious and overall experience was great. Would come back again and try some pasta and gnocchi.

Best Italian restaurant in Hermanus. You can get any dish at Fabio’s. From Pasta, seafood to steaks. The service was great too.

So many restaurants to choose from but Fabios was just around the corner from where we stayed and we really felt like some good Italian food. To be very honest, was also very curious after reading all the Tripadvisor comments and the feedback from the owner ;). In short, we had such an amazing time - the service was great and the food was really fantastic! It was really like being in Italy!

Had finished one of the many enjoyable concerts at the Hermanus fine arts festival, it was late in the afternoon and pelting with rain. Had been to Fabios many times before in the distant past and had eaten passable meals, but this time it was close to where we were and we felt like pasta. We realised how late we were when we arrived and the staff were settling down to finish their late lunch, but the warm welcome dispelled any notion that we were intruding.
The owners had changed over the past years and were not known to us but we were treated like long lost friends and were served 2 fabulous pastas each brought to the table in the pan in which it was cooked.The vongole and bolognese sauces were exceptional and quantity was such that we both had enough left over to use for supper later that night.
Finished off with a superb cassata and a double expresso. The main course price was a joke at R85.00 each whilst the ambience was exactly what one would expect an Italian Trattoria to be.
