    We went with a friend and hoped for a good experience - and our expectations were exceeded. We chose one of the menus with wine and got the best meal we had in a long time - the wine was also perfect for each dish. Definitely not the last time we go there.

    We have been coming to this restaurant for many years and always had a good experience. This time was likely our last visit. Food and table service was good, nice waiters, reasonable waiting time for the food, however.. paying 149,00 DKK for two small meatballs and some spaghetti is not ok. Even though it tasted ok. A small small glass of soda at 45,00 dkk... Well.. we felt ripped off.

    My wife and I spent an evening at Fabio's. We selected a 5-course menu including the wine menu @ 999 DKK per person. The food was very very good. But the wines left somewhat behind. The Veneto Chardonnay for the 2nd starter was without character, the Barolo for the main course was not available and we could choose between an Amazon or a Barbaresco. Strange choice as the Amazon would never match the food, and finally the choice of wine for the cheese was a Sicilian too sweet wine. A Veneto passito would have matched the cheese better and would have offered a consequence in the wine menu. The service was excellent, so the overall impression was 4 out of 5 stars. Remember: They take cash only. Not appropriate for business dinner.

    We had a four-course dinner, which was delicious, but the wine was far to expensive. In a shop you could buy the same wines for a quarter or a third. None of the waiters were able to speak danish in spite of the fact, that the restaurant is situated in an area where a lot of danes are dining out often, Furthermore no credit cards are accepted - you have to pay cash. Why?

    Fabio is an Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is also very Italian, and the service is excellent. We have been there several times, and the quality level is always in top - regarding food, service, atmosphere, .... This time Fabio himself was there and actually spend some time at each table when we should select the wine - he's a good sales man :-)

    There is a lot of stuff I could say, but I will try my best to keep it short. When I had to answer the question 'What sort of visit was this?', Tripadvisor did not give me the chance to choose Couples, Family and Friends, but only one of them and in what follows I will refer to 'Family', as my last visit was with my family. If you want to have an amazing experience with champagne, good wine and amazing food then this is the place. This experience was not like a classical restaurant bla bla bla... no no my friends, if you want to be spoiled by some super nice waiters and exquisite cuisine then you've hit the jackpot. We've started with some bubbles, some amazing starters( you have to try the eggplant cake and the bruschetta with bell peppers and goat cheese). The starters had a lot more ingredients, but these 2 are my personal favorites. The pastas were really good and it was clear that the guys in the kitchen knew what they were doing, but the ACE came in the next course: the meat. 2 x T: Tasty and Tender. I highly recommend the Madagascar peppercorn sauce as it is my favorite. This was my experience and now the classical question: Will I go again? FOR SURE :)

    For many years, this has been our favourite local restaurant but after we have experienced what the meat is made of and in general that the ingredients are of low quality - we will never come back or order it for takeaway.

    Amazing time spent in Restaurant Fabio. Cozy, romantic and elegant place with delicious food.. tender meat, home made pasta and incredible tiramisu. Big wine selection with perfect recommendation of our preferences from staff service. Charming waiters with a big smile on the faces showed us restaurant's lounge where we drunk some cocktails and also wine cellar perfect for romantic evening. For sure we discovered our favourite place in Copenhagen where we will come back again! :)

    Very good Italian kitchen, without being fancy. Solid, tasty, high quality, and well prepared dishes, and nice service. Decent although not cheap prices, but the quality match the prices. Very cosy restaurant.

    So me and my girlfriend went to Fabio last night 23/01/2017 and despite the title Fabio was not there. To start with i didn't even know who Fabio was. But after eating and just being in the environment you could really feel that this place has his essence stored in it. From the pictures on the wall, the music and the perfection. The two girls who were serving us that night. The smiles.. Everything was perfect and i owe Fabio so much for giving us that experience. And to top it off, we were shown the wine cellar. I have no words... From the second we stepped down those stairs to the wine cellar we were no longer in Denmark.. The live candles and everything.. Just wow.. It really felt like we were in the lady and the vagabond movie! Everything here is perfection and even though i have never met Fabio.. I met him last night.. Or a part of him atleast. Well done Fabio. Well done.

    Although the service was good and the food quite quality I was astonished when they very kindly indicated me that they just accept cash!!! I never have cash now days and even less in Denmark!! How can you have a so excellent wine list with bottles around 5000 DKK and to pretend to get your customers paying cash. What a pity, if they correct it could be a good and cozy restaurant to recommend but not with their current payment policy!!!

    The restaurant was recommended by friends who had visited only about a week previously. They liked it so perhaps it is very variable. However, our experience was .... Ghastly! It was a warm evening and the front door seemed locked so we entered through the side - right past huge smelly bins! Not a good start. The 'garden' we sat in was initially quite attractive. Nice to be outdoors on a summers eve. However, in the corner next to our table were strewn chairs, disused lamps and a few weeds. We ordered wine. No house wine - lots to choose from but all ridiculously expensive. We chose and when the server returned - they were 'out' of that wine but had brought another recommendation. Assuming it was a clumsy up-sale stunt I asked if it was the same price. It was. Half an hour later the table next door had a similar experience! Dodgy! The set meals were not very flexible so we went a la carter leaving out the pudding. A large sharing mixed starter was ok but not really easy to share between 3 of us. Several of us fancied veal for mains. It was disappointing - regardless of which guide it was in: Gorgonzola, tomato or mushroom. The meat insufficiently tender and not big enough as more than a taster. We waited an age for the main course and asked a couple of times what on earth was going on in the kitchen for it to take that long. Clearly some dishes had sat around waiting for others as the food was tepid. This was really not acceptable but we could not be bothered waiting to have it rectified. The final straw? The bill! They do not take ANY cards - not even debit cards! Only cash! Who runs a business like that in this day and age? Well, Fabio does! We can only assume that the absent owner has employed this clumsy practice in order to be unaccountable to the Danish taxman. All in all - a miserable experience! Do not walk into their trap!

    Whilst visiting Frederiksberg in Denmark, the decision was made to explore the local restaurants and stumbled upon FABIO. What a discovery it turned out to be! A unique and cozy restaurant, Fabio has two levels from which diners can choose and we opted for the upper level from which the street was immediately visible. I opted for the Veal, mushrooms, potatoes and truffle sauce and was far from dissapointed, in fact I was in ecstacy due to this culinary treat. The dessert to culminate the evening only hightened the experience for the evening. Staff were attentive and receptive to our needs thus making this Italian restaurant highly recommended. Two aspects which prevented Fabio from gaining 5/5 were the fact that the space seemed cluttered on the upper level coupled with the fact that there were too many photos of the proprietor on the walls which detracted from the overall ambience! Nonetheless, this is highly recommended for all visitors to Copenhagen, particularly Frederiksberg.

    I was there twice, with different friends and we were satisfied both times! The food is just perfect like the service. Our waitress were super attentive and you can see they have experience in the restaurant business. I always recommend it to my friend if they would like to have the real Italian food!!

    the food is original and tastes fantastic. Just right portions. A good selection of wine and very friendly staff. Only reason I don't give it 5 stars, is that they have put in too many tables in a small place, which makes it difficult to converse and not get distracted by the guests at the next table.

    I went with a friend who lives nearby. First off: staff was ok friendly and the food was ok. Nothing more. The restaurant is full of selfies presenting the owner with all kinds of celebrities. That has never worked for me. The wine fridges present some very flashy and expensive wines. Seems a bit tacky in my opinion. Which leads me to the wine list. So over priced. I am no cheap skate but I dont like getting ripped. We had a beer at 11euro a piece! Granted it was a good Italian beer. My biggest complaint is that the place is cash only. In my opinion there is only one reason to run a place without card payment. That is tax evasion. It makes no sense to have wines at 500+ euro/bottle and then expect cash. Unless your customers have too much cash? This place is not to be recommended. At all. The second star is only because the food was ok.

    Went there with friends for dinner - had sparkling in the winecellar first - then four dish meal - we let Fabio pick the wines - dinner perfect as well as wines - attentive and happy staff that gave exactly the right amount of attention. This will be a must to go back to - OFTEN!

    We went there to persons and was seated in the wine cellar. It was "lady and the tramp" like, and nice. The waiter ask if had a hard deadline and since we did, he suggest a menu and a wine which was perfect. The food was 400 dkk per person plus wine. All in all a plesent surprise.
