It may be that you've walked past the unassuming exterior of Fabrizio in the past, perhaps overlooking it as you hurry by. After eating here once though, you'll never make that mistake again. Inside you'll find a delightful, one-of-a-kind Italian restaurant with a friendly and laid-back atmosphere. So irresistible is its charm and ambience that, once through the door, you'll be eagerly perusing the menu with a glass of fine Italian wine before you know it. All meals are made from fresh ingredients and prepared in such an authentic style that your tastebuds will think you've taken a holiday to the Mediterranean. Far from what you'd usually find in your average Italian, Fabrizio's dishes are original and creative, encouraging you to try something different. You may even discover a new favourite from Fabrizio's menu - the paprika linguine with sea urchins and the roast guinea fowl with speck and juniper berries are two fine contenders. An ever-changing list of specials further increases your choice; there's always something new to sample. Friendly and approachable staff are only too pleased to answer questions and cater to specific needs. This, along with the thought and effort that clearly goes into each dish, means that guests feel valued and cared for, often planning their next visit before they're out the door.
