    The food, service, and items from the bar were all outstanding. For the price of dinner and drinks (over $200 for 2) the ambiance can be upgraded a bit. The lighting and heaters are nice, but it is still a tented parking lot. That being said, we will be back for the food and drinks. Great dinner spot before a show at either the Pantages or the Palladium. Easy walk to either.

    Sorry, I don't really know what happened to Fabiolus but it isn't the same as in the old days. 95% of the dining is in a tented area that used to be the parking lot. On the night we were there it was cold with wind blowing through the dining tent. Inside seating is now basically non existent, so unfortunately you have to eat "in the sterile circus tent". Also, the quality of the food and service has deteriorated and they host large tour groups which unfortunately also totally distracts from the experience. It is what it is....everything changes, but unfortunately I can no longer recommend one of our old favorites.

    We made a reservation here since we were going to a show at the Pantages. It was nice that we were able to leave our car there for $10 and walk to the theater. The service was very prompt and friendly. We felt welcomed and the staff was happy to have us there. The food was alright. The Caesar salad didn’t have much of a taste to it, but the lasagna was good. Their dessert selection was good too. Overall a nice experience for going off of Open Table recommendations and reviews only. I would go back again.

    Fabilolus Cucina is perfect for before and after theatre meals in Hollywood. Great pastas, excellent wine list and prices, and superb service (thank you, Olga). Parking on site and you can leave your car there for a small fee during the theatre performance.

    We went to Fabiolus Cucina before attending a show at the Pantages. We were able to leave our car at the restaurant, which was only 2 blocks from the theater. The waitress brought our food very quickly without rushing us, their drinks recommendations to pair with the food were on point. People were friendly, and we loved every minute of it. We will DEFINITELY be back.

    The two seafood pasta dishes we had were a bit on the salty side. The flavor was fine and it did not need all that salt. The portions were fine but is would have been nice to have them served with bread. The beast part is the $10 discount if you show Pantages tickets and the free parking to dine. If you are going to that Pantages for a show afterwards you can park at the restaurant for an additional $10. That was great.

    Fabiolus was terrific as always. I have always had the pasta in the past, but this time we tried the pizza. It was excellent, and since it was Valentine's Day, it came in a heart shape. It was a great touch. Our waiter was a fun and friendly presence and had good advice on cocktails.

    Went to Fabiolus Cucina before catching a show (The Wiz) at the Pantages Theatre. The restaurant was within walking distance from the theatre. The restaurant look small from the out side but once you get into the restaurant you will see that they have a huge covered patio out back. We started with with Fried Calamari which was breaded with a light batter. The calamari was tender. We also order some garlic bread that was really good. I had Grilled Salmon Filet and my son had the Lobster Ravioli. Both entree were flavorful and filling. We would definitely come back here for dinner again.

    After taking forever to get a waiter,They forgot one of our hot appetizers. Then when that arrived they wanted to give us the final bill, we hadn't received any of our entrees, they completely forgot. Then they were going to comp the appetizer because it was so delayed, that never happened. The parking was convenient otherwise a major disappointment

    Went to Fabiolus Cucina for dinner before our 8pm show at the Pantages. We were seated at 5:40pm. Everything was fine (i.e., seating, water, bread, order taking, appetizers, etc.) before they got busy. However, service dropped dramatically when they got busy…no water service, no clearing dishes, no server checking on service or dessert. We had to wait 20 minutes just for the check after asking the person refilling water glasses. Definitely plan more time than other restaurants if you have a show to catch.

    Excellent choice for a pre-show dinner. The staff and kitchen are able to handle a full house in the 6:30 PM time frame, service is excellent, good wine list, full bar, parking option at the restaurant for those attending a show, a couple block walk to the Pantages. Convenient, tasty, good value.

    Mediocre Italian food with Mom-and-Pop feel and decent waiting service. Ambiance is basic, nothing special. Prices are on the high side for what you get, mostly due to location (close proximity to Hollywood Blvd and Pantages Theatre). Picked this place mid-week, last minute before an evening show. If seeking higher end Italian food look elsewhere. Is OK for a last-minute dinner before a show, don't expect to be blown away.

    Chose this restaurant on a friend's recommendation (however her last visit was pre-covid) as I was taking my mom to a show at The Pantages. First off, we weren't greeted for several minutes upon entering the restaurant and very few tables were filled as they'd just opened. Their restroom appeared to be under construction-- it was a challenge to get the faucets to run, and the toilet handle was literally sticking through a hole in the wall! The food was mediocre at best. My $23 fried calamari "appetizer" was awful. Bland batter and calamari rings that were likely previously frozen, as they were completely rubbery. My chicken came with a lemon caper sauce that was super thick like a gravy, and tasted of flour. This is the only Italian restaurant I've been to that I had to ask for bread. It is usually compliments of the house, but when the bill came I saw that I was charged $6 for literally a few slivers of bread. What was meant to be a special day with my mom turned into a complete disappointment. And on top of everything else the service and staff was bad. The wait staff was neither pleasant nor friendly, and the few words I exchanged with our waiter was only at my behest. Our crappy meal was over $100 (with no beverages by the way, only water). Next time, I want Italian I'll go to a decent restaurant like La Dolce Vita or Musso & Frank!

    Food is trully Italian, i was not satisfied with the Bruschetta, but on the other side the calamari are the best in town so far, the pasta was excellent as well as the pizza. I lived in Bologna, Italy do i think I have a good reference. There was no ambiance as maybe it was early on Halloween night Overall, great

    We were very disappointed in the total experience. We had the calamari as an appetizer and it was awful. Extremely chewy. I had the lemon drop martini, which was not too bad. My friend got the Manhattan which was awful and someone else got the jalapeno martini, also terrible. The food was not good either. The chicken Parmesan was very dry. The pesto shrimp gnocchi was covered in pesto (you couldn’t even make out the shrimp) and the shrimp over cooked. Someone else got a salad and the was the safest thing on the menu to get. The noise level was terrible with all the emergency vehicles going by. Also, they state that they have parking if you’re seeing a show at the Pantages. However, the lot closes at 9 so that won’t work since most shows get out after that. All in all a terrible experience. Which was very disappointing since we read some good reviews about this place. We will definitely not be coming back here anytime soon!

    They are always so accommodating in taking us early for our reservation. The service was a tad off tonight. My salad came literally 5 minutes before my entree and I was finally able to get someone's attention and ask for bread at the end of the meal.

    The food was excellent. The service was good. But it was SO DAMN HOT. 90 degrees, and no fan and no air conditioning. We were quite literally dripping sweat before the food even arrived. We might return, but never from March through October!
