“In the mood for wood-oven fired pizza? Move along, there's better elsewhere in Santa Rosa”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

This was our second meal at the Fabiani's. The first meal we had there was with a winemaker's dinner and the food was quite acceptable, nothing outstanding. This second meal was simply underwhelming. We brought our boys there for pizza knowing they had a "wood fired" oven for pizza, you know the way they do it in Italy. One of them is our Italian exchange student.

The crust I would swear was made with Bisquick. You can find better pizza dough in the refrigerated section of Trader Joe's. The cheese was meh, the dough was meh, the pizza was just meh. Although baked in a wood-fired oven.

We ordered the Tiramisu which they took our order, but then came back to say it wasn't "ready" yet, but was willing to serve it to us for free. Cool. It was fine, personally I wouldn't have quibbled over it.

Good, attentive service. Really poor pizza. If you are in the mood for pizza, look elsewhere, there are several other better establishments in Santa Rosa.

For a Saturday night the restaurant was 1/2 empty. That is not a good sign.
