In driving home yesterday from a day at Destiny Mall, we wanted a good place to feed the family for dinner. Fabio's came up on my phone so we rolled the dice to try it. Everything was homemade !!! From the fresh bread, to the salad dressing to all the pastas offered - all delicious and made fresh. The surprise... More

The location is inside the lobby of the Clarion Inn on Ferrell Rd, Syracuse, NY. Very easy access into the restaurant, wheel chair ramp and stairs with electronic opening doors. The Name outside says : Marcella's, I can't figure that out. We made a reservation for Friday at 6:00 pm we were seated very quickly. There were many empty tables.... More

My wife and I both had chicken parmigana. What we received was frozen patties with a bright orange and watery sauce with no flavor that tasted like it came out of a can. The homemade pasta was terrible and tasted like ramen noodles. Service was even worse than the food. The waitress never brought us bread with our meal, drinks... More

The dark, cool interior of Fabio's on a hot summer day was most welcome, even if the cuisine was less than wonderful. Pleasant, overworked wait staff helped the situation, but served the wrong wine and never came back to check on it. My partner and I both had insalata caprese and veal livornese. We agreed the meal could easily have... More

Remarkable food. Excellent ambiance inside. The outside belies the excellent experience inside. From the complimentary bread to the desert, all of the food was exceptional.

Haven't been here in awhile so we thought we'd try it again. Once again it was a disappointment. The decor is a mishmash of nothingness, strings of Christmas lights and fish tanks, including one with a giant piranha that is so big it can't move within the tank and makes you feel sorry for him! With only one other couple... More

Anyone who's been to Fabio's recently knows the food is amazing and tastes like its straight off the boat from Italy! Must commend Fabio on many fabulous meals. This place is a regular favorite for me and my family. I recommend trying the lemon chicken, steak, and the priest chokers!

As good or better than carabaos. Nice atmosphere and good service hubby had veal scallopini it was great. I had a dish that was lightly breaded veal and portobellos and it was great. So good that we didn't even eat the pasta. Excellent lobster bisque

A gem of restaurant that must be experienced when visiting Cortland, NY. Authentic Italian food. Home made varieties of pasta. Yes, made fresh. Started with a soup each and then a large salad which was just enough to serve us both. Had the veal parmigiana which you can cut with a fork, two large delicious pieces. Husband had the homemade...
