The worst food I have had!! It was salty and tasteless. I have been going there for years and today was the last straw. The waiter who has waited on me for years was rude when I told him the food was not good. The portions were so small and I could not eat the salad or the chicken. He "deducted" from the check the amount of the chicken but added the soup(that was the only thing that was half decent but not great) price - it was the lunch special. Never heard of anything so absurb.

This place is sooo good. I loved the italian chop salad, they make the best salad. I use to work nearby and we use to eat there all the time. It was a very good value and never very crowded.

Whenever I hear someone mention this restaurant, my mouth waters. The experience begins when you walk in the door. The food is amazing and smells just wonderful. A little pricey, but worth every penny. The service is good, the food is delicious. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

I love Fabrocini's! The food is superb and the service is terrific. It is very "kid friendly". Almost every time we visit the restaurant the gentleman helping bus the tables comes by and chats with the kids. Makes you feel at home-

Fabrocinis has great food with a wonderful atmosphere at a reasonable price. My husband and I love to go there or even take out if we feel like staying in for the evening. Our favorite dishes are the Baked Gnocchi and the Pasta Con Broccoli. The service is always great and you won't have to wait long for your food.

Cozy and crowded, fragrant and fresh, Fabrocini's offers some of the best Italian food in the Valley. Although it could take a while to get seated during weekend evenings, the food is most certainly worth the wait- especially when you can walk down Ventural Blvd. to make the the time go by faster. The steamy soups and variety of delicious salads ranging from minestrone to a mussel and clam soup with a tomato basil based broth, and an antipasti salad to a fresh array of marinated peppers and buffalo mozzarella atop chopped greens, it is difficult to make your way down to the entree selections. The freshly baked bread that you can dip in olive oil, balsamic vinegarette, and parmesean cheese- its absolutely amore!

This is a great place to eat. Service is exceptional. Parking has gotten much better since the movie theater next store closed. Been there a dozen times haven't had one bad thing on the menu. They usually have three or four nightly specials which you should definitely give consideration to. My favorite special is the Chicken with Grogonzola sauce. It's the best I've ever had. It's so good, it should be on the regular menu. Their bread is warm and delicious. Staff is very friendly and attentive. I get re-fills on ice tea long before my glass is empty. Place is really cozy. TRY IT OUT! You won't regret it.

A friend of mine told us that we should all have dinner there one night. This was my first time dining there. The place was so cozy and tastefully decorated with pictures of Italy. A good place to go on a date or with your friends. I saw even a small family there too. Our server was great. She was super nice and very attentive. Our friend is obsessed with the chicken dish that comes with artichokes and capers. We tried some of her dish and wow. I ordered the chicken napoli which is bow tie pasta with chicken, basil, mushrooms, and gargonzola cheese in a cream sauce. It was absolutely delicious. Every bite was like a burst full of flavor. Prepared freshly and with key ingredients that make the dishes so savory. Huge portions and at a reasonable price. I couldn't finish it all. The leftover food two days later was still so amazingly tastey, Great place to dine. I think I have found a new favorite Italian restaurant versus the usual Cheesecake Factory. I will come back again and again. That's for sure.

Pros: Great service, fine Italian food in a cozy setting that isn't a rip off

Cons: Small, pot-holed stacked parking in back

Small intimate italian restaurant. Nice and pleasant servers, overall great customer service. My girlfriend's dad asked for yellow pages and the server had almos the whole restaurant looking for it. Food was GREAT! We started off with Calamari Frito (fried calamaris) which was awesome. My girlfriend had a chicken topped with prosciutto with pasta. Her dad and myself got a Potato Crusted Halibut with Garlic Cream Sauce. The food was incredible. Definitely recommend this place to anyone, perfect for dates.

This is truly my favorite place to eat... Well, my favorite food is pasta, but still, this place has the perfect balance to what I expect from an Italian restaurant. The food is GREAT... so great that I've had it once a week for about a year now. Their bread is warm and delicious. I've pretty much tried all the pasta dishes and I've never been even slightly disappointed. If you go there, the place is really cozy and romantic. Or you can call them up and order your food for pick-up, they'll have it ready in about 15 minutes, no matter how busy they are. Portions are generous and prices are very reasonable. Finally, the service is absolutely great! No flaws at all, I love this place. TRY IT OUT! You won't regret it.

Always good food; flavored just right (unlike another Italian place in Sherman Oaks that's way too salty). Yet to have a dish that wasn't perfect. The place is always packed--even on weeknights! If that doesn't tell you something...
