We proudly offer quick service and affordable quality ingredients.
Very good food, excellent service and great location! Parking was very convenient too. Only reason didn’t give it five stars is because it was a little expensive and unfortunately we got a table by the parking lot which wasn’t as pleasant as the inner tables under the lights! Otherwise “5”’ s across the board.
After a short break, we are back at Fabiolus Cucina (Pantages schedule) and we are so glad. We had four suburb meals of Caesar Salad with Salmon, Chicken Salad, Gnocchi 4 Cheese, and Fettuccine Alfredo - all delicious. Gabriel was our server supported by the Fabiolus crew. We have been coming here for over ten years as our dining place before heading to the Pantages. Great food and fine service.
Found this place for dinner before a concert at Hollywood Bowl. We had a 5pm reservation but it was fairly slow. The food and service were both very good. I had the Vodka Penne and my wife had the Lobster stuffed ravioli special which also came with shrimp. By the time we left the place was getting pretty full (for a Sunday).
Would go back again if in the area.
Hi Jon, thank you for sharing your experience - we hope you do join us when you come back to the Hollywood area!
Outstanding food at a good value. Excellent for a pre-show dinner!
Hi Bill, thank you for joining us - we love hosting guests before a show : ) Hope to see you again soon!!
First restaurant in LA and it was AMAZING! Great food and great service!
Thank you for the lovely feedback - glad you had an amazing experience and chose to dine with us!! : )
Excellent, authentic Italian food with friendly service. Great spot for pre-theater (Pantages) dining.
Happy you're happy Nick! Hope to see you again soon : )
Great under appreciated place with nice ambiance!
Gracie for the feedback!! : )
Still love this place, and the quality is still there. We did have to ask for water 4 times but not a bid deal. I will say that we preferred the darker lit ambiance that the outside dining area used to have before the renovation. The food is still top notch.
Thanks for sharing you experience David! We will most certainly discuss this at our next meeting and do our best to improve the ambiance... hope to see you again soon!
Even though they called and left a message, was not aware there was a private party going on. Staff was great and accommodated us anyway. Calamari was small, dry and disgusting. Should have sent it back but I’m not that way. Risotto was good and home made pasta delicious.
Sorry you didn't have the best experience - we will consider your feedback to improve the guest experience!
Going to see a play
Hope you enjoyed the play as much as you enjoyed dining with us MaryL! Thanks for the lovely feedback : )
Thanks for the feedback!
Overall, it was fabulous, as usual. However, on this occasion, the music was a little loud and too upbeat. It was difficult to talk over and had a "manic, now get out of here" feel. But the food was delicious.
Thanks for sharing your experience LAGrl! We will discuss the issue you had with the music and see how we can make improvements to the vibe!
Delicious and Simple Food!
That's exactly what we strive for Beba! Thank you for sharing your experience
Good food, great happy hour wine prices, and a really nice patio for dining. They also have free parking in the back!
Thanks for the feedback Sue! We hope to see you again : )
The Lobster Ravioli is my favorite! The service is a tad slow but the ambiance makes up for it. Seriously, you must try the ravioli & the drink menu is incredible!
Ciao Ashley! Thanks for sharing your experience with us on OpenTable - we are very happy to hear you enjoyed the Lobster Ravioli - it's one of our favorite dishes too : )
Good food, great service but the prices have gotten a bit steep. Also, unless you’re sitting in the back patio, the acoustics in the restaurant are painfully loud.
Thanks for the feedback Rififi, we'll keep your note in mind to enhance the guest experience!
Lovely food. Just felt there was a lot of up selling and a sense of being rushed. Friendly staff however.
Hi JoannaH, we apologize you felt rushed - it's never our intent to lessen the guest experience. We strive to provide great customer service. Hope you'll give us another try!
Food is excellent, menu is varied and quality and quantity are super. Our server was attentive without being obsequious. Love the patio but avoided it this visit since it was so hot out - great in the evening.
Hi Cleo, thank you so much for the feedback! We are happy you enjoyed your dining experience with us : )
This place was OK. The service and ambiance was great. The price point on the quality of food was pretty high. I get it. It’s Hollywood and Sunset Blvd. still. $11 bottled beer and 2 dishes at around $24 each? For pasta? Cmon.
Thanks for the feedback DaveInEverett. We offer promotional specials and deals for guests : ) We even launched a Happy Hour. Feel free to join us 5pm to 7pm from now through the end of September!
My girlfriend and I decided that this might be the worst Italian food we've ever had. The Chianti Classico
was good though.
Dear MARKS, Sorry you felt this way. We will consider your feedback in our effort to improve the guest experience!
Tried and true staple for good, but not great basic Italian food. Prices have recently gone through the roof since last visit. $27 for a single small-sized, overcooked chicken breast partially covered with scant tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese with mixed vegetables and tiny potatoes is RIDICULOUS! Food is edible, value is poor.
Thanks for the feedback. We will keep this in mind to enhance the guest experience!
The food was excellent!! They have a great variety of dishes and everything was very tasty. It was a little noisy with the ambulances passing by.
Thanks for sharing your positive experience MaryL!
I really enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The server was nice. Food was good. Music was upbeat and fun!
Thanks for sharing your positive experience with us and the OpenTable community Michelle!
Went for dinner with my 16 year old son before a play at the Pantages. Food was incredibly delicious. Started a little slow when we first sat down but then everything was spot on. Even got a table side visit from the chef. We will definitely go back. Portion size was actually very big.
Grazie for the kind feedback! We are happy you enjoyed your experience with your son - hope you enjoyed the show too!
Excellent food, great outdoor patio. Get the 4 cheese homemade gnocchi—-AMAZING.
Happy to hear this feedback... it's one of our best sellers for people who know Gnocchi (potato dumpling).
Sat in a very loud corner along sunset blvd. service was good but food was mediocre. None of our meals were very hot. It’s fine but wouldn’t rush back.
Hi Stacy, we wish you had a better experience. We do appreciate the honest feedback - we hope you'll try us again sometime!
This conveniently located a short walk from Pantages Theatre- quality food nicely made. Service was excellent.
Thanks for the feedback BonBri! We really appreciate it : )
The perfect spot for dinner before the Pantages. Free parking, the nicest wait staff, yummy food!
Thank you for joining us before the show! We love hosting Pantages show-goers : )
Great lobster ravioli and calamari was awesome. Food came out quick.
Thanks for the kind feedback! Glad you enjoyed some of our specialty and popular dishes!!
Fabulous menu. A variety of pastas, including handmade pastas, risottos, pizzas and other Italian dishes and entrees. Reasonably priced for the Hollywood location and quality menu offerings. All items ordered were excellently prepared and enjoyed. Calamari was light and tasty, not thick batter nor oily. Truffle mushroom ravioli in truffle cream sauce was decadent and tasty. Risotto perfect and delicious. Too many dishes to choose ... looking forward to going back to try gnocchi and other dishes. A nice large covered patio with good atmosphere -- good spacing, not as tightly packed as most other patio location dining near the Pantages. Have been eating at the variety of restaurants walking distance to the Pantages for almost a decade, and this is now on our short list of go-to pre-theater dinning locations. Only issue was service could have been more attentive.
EvLe, you review makes us very happy! Honest feedback that allows us to make improvements is what we look for when it comes to customer service and quality assurance. Grazie!
Nice, we enjoyed our meal, we will visit again.
Filled up fast with people.
Ciao RobertT! Thanks for the feedback... hope to see you again soon : )
The food is good but the service is terrible. It took 30 minutes just to get our drinks and food order. My husband was not happy and told the waiter we would have to leave and have dinner else where because we had a play to attend. The waiter told us to do what we had to do. it was very upsetting since we do like to dine here before the performance at the pantages. I think we finally learned our lesson. We need to go somewhere else.
Patsay, we understand your frustration - at times we get busy and customer service may not be up to par. We'll discuss this issue in-house and see how we can make improvements!
An always-solid, go-to Italian that always pleases!
Thanks for the lovely feedback DavidS, we are glad to serve you!
Great food. Reasonable prices and close to theaters.
My favorite place for dinner before going to the Hollywood Pantages Theatre. Been doing it for years and have not been disappointed
Bob, thank you again for the kind words! We will see you again soon ; )
absolutely love this place, we save it for special occasions but honestly would eat here every day if i could.
SvenA, we love you too! Thanks for the feedback : )
Food and service were great, especially for the price. Service was also fairly quick, too.
While the patio area is nice, it is squished between two tall buildings and a parking lot, so there is no view, no people watching, etc. It is not like a "sidewalk cafe" kind of patio. There is no sun on the patio, and there a barbed wire surrounding the top of the patio area. So the ambiance is so-so.
However, we were able to park in the restaurant parking lot for just $7 and leave our car there all evening while we went to a show at the Pantages. This is a bargain compared to most other nearby parking lots!
Jennifer, thank you for the feedback. We read it and agree. Very fair and honest. Come back and hopefully we make up for the ambiance with a more food portions : P
Love this place
We love you DavidC!
The food was delicious and it was served very quickly! There was a very nice breeze in the outdoor seating area. The staff was excellent! The restroom was nice and clean!
Shita, you are among our favorite guests. Feedback giving, honest, and direct. We will keep it in consideration at our next company meeting to improve the guest experience! : )
Hi Chris, thank you joining us for a bday dinner! Glad to hear it was a positive experience!!
