Great little Italian Restaurant at Sunset and Vine.
You want to be spoiled? Do you want a real taste of home?
Go to Fabio Conti's lovely little cafe on Sunset and you will have a good time. The food... well he goes home and has his mother in Italy teaches him new recipes each year.. its delicious. A great wine selection is on hand to match your budget and taste.
The Sunday brunch buffet is like a giveaway. It is so reasonable that.... just go and see and the Mimosas go with it.
Did I say that he makes his own Tiramisu.

Food was delicious, ambiance was awesome.
Will come back.
Great Eat. The lasagna is delicious!
Great place to eat if you are taking in a show.
The food was excellent. I had the lasagna and it was very well prepared, home made style and was a good sized portion. The calamari was light, crispy and non-fishy, and the misto salad was large and fresh. The bread and pesto were tasty and plentiful. The chocolate no-flour cake was a great chocolate rush, even from a non- cake or chocolate loving person like me. The service was friendly and did all we asked of them quickly and with a smile. Don't miss out on this place.
Pros: The fresh pasta dishes, quick and friendly service, No-flour chocolate cake and a short walk from the theatre are all pros
Cons: We had reservations which are a must if it's bad weather, thank goodness we had them that afternoon, and no Italian ice cream.
A perfect dinner before. Myself, four other adults and two six-year-olds went here (2/8/09) before going to see "Phantom" at the Pantages. This was the second time two of us had been here. The food was superb, the spaghetti con vongole the best I've ever had anywhere, the ravioli was light and obviously homemade, the pappedelle with pears and mushrooms was divine, and the chocolate no-flour cake was to die for!!!!! The calamari appetizer was crispy and not oily, and the salads (misto and the one with the arrugla and radiccio) were all that one could ask for. The bread and pesto were equally good. In fact, everything was great, including the service and our wine. I honestly can't think of anything that could have improved our meal. I tend to be critical of restaurants. If they don't measure up I have no qualms about saying so. But honestly this was as about as perfect a meal as you can have!!! We would have been happy to give six stars were it possible!!!
Great burrata antipasti.
I work across the street so we dialed in a takeout order. I love that the takeout prices are lower than the regular lunch prices. Not only did they deliver the food, but they gave us extra bread. I like a real piece of bread over bread sticks any day. Plus they come with delicious dipping sauce.
I got the burrata antipasti. It was delicious and a larger portion than I expected. I love the caprese salad at Pizzeria Mozza and this one was almost as good. The Pizzeria Mozza one roasts cherry tomatoes and seasons them with sea salt. Fabiolus uses a standard tomato. They included black olives, which was a nice touch.
My workmates swear by the Fusilli ai funghi e spinaci.
Now I want to get the full dining experience. I will definitely go back again. How lucky am I to have such great food so close by.
Terrible experience !!. Go anywhere else ! ---Food was very average. The prices for the entrees were way overpriced for what you received. I ordered the lamb chops (recommended). They were very "gamy". If not for a heavy sauce, they would have been left after one bite. Others at the table were nice about the quality and said it was ok. The service was fine, but at the end, the owner came out and was so rude and out of line that we had to get up and leave.: Not because we had done any thing wrong or were bothering other patrons, but because the owner was so wrong that I needed to "get away" before I said something I didnt want to say. For what it cost toeat here with a bottle of wine, you could go blindfolded and be better off !!!
very disappointed. After reading the great reviews I was very excited to eat here. The appetizer I had, the caprese, was pretty good, but that was the extent of the good food. When the entrees came we were all very disappointed (there were 4 of us). I had the chicken parmesan, which was dry, over cooked and the breading was very coarse with no flavor, and which the server strongly recommended. Then my husband, upon the server's recommendation, ordered the lasagna, which was probably the worst we have ever had. Completely flavorless and totally bland. All in all I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone I like.
Best pasta in town. Fabiolus is my absolute favorite place to eat in LA. Parking on Sunset in sometimes a challenge. Vallet in the back is really rude. Past is wonderful and the desserts are wonderful. I could eat here everday and be happy. I have been known to schedule more than one lunch here a week. I cried when the location across from Paramount closed, but am happy that the Sunset location is not that far. Love the fact that they have carry out. Kiana, the owner, is always a delight - as so is my favorite waiter Gabriel. I highly recommend this place
Go here. Every time my boyfriend and I have gone here we have had a wonderful experience. The food is so good we don't understand why it isn't always busy. There are so many selections on their menu to suit anyone and the prices are very reasonable. The service is friendly and attentive. The overall appearance of the restaurant is so cute, and there is also outside dining. Definitely recommend this place.
