Went back there for dinner as we had such a good time a year ago. This time it was not as good. It appeared that they wanted us out as soon as posible - asking ro the mains while we were still eating starters, tables were reserved but nobody ever joined the tables, as soon as we left we could...

We had a great evening at Fabio's. Great menu with good variety. Pizza we shared was very tasty. The wine selection is slightly pricey, but good. Really enjoyed the Scaramanga from Wellington with our dinner. A highlight is the desert menu. Great variety and true Italian fare. Will go again.

Some years ago I was attending a health workers conference at a hotel in Hermanus and the supper buffet served up was dire. I snuck out round the corner and found Fabio’s buzzing with happy customers and delicious smells from the kitchen. I was made welcome, sat down at a table and had a delicious sizzling pizza. I subsequently went... More

With you're looking for an italian restaurant in Hermanos, this is the place. A really good restaurant, with good food. The pizza is amazing, light, and with a good price. The only thing that I thought it a little bit expensive was the Calzone, but everything has a good price.

Fabio's is an authentic Italian experience hidden down a romantic alley way next to the historical dressed stone Anglican Church in the CBD of Hermanus. The atmosphere is great, the portions are generous and the prices were reasonable. I was a bit disappointing in my Cannelloni, I expected something great but got something that was no better than my own... More

We were pleasantly surprized by the fact that there are vegan options on the menu and that some of the other items could be changed so that they are suitable for vegans. The food is great, and it is a restaurant I will visit again and again.
