One must really love the taste of Italy, not what passes for Italian food around here. Fabio is from Italy, trained in New York City in Little Italy for years before coming to Cortland, lucky us. One must love garlic, and authentic high end flavor to appreciate. His menu is expansive for such a small restaurant. My relatives come from urban areas, my father in law is from Italy, and this is the only restaurant that meets his approval with so much authentic choice. Best kept secret? in Feb or March Fabio puts on a 5 hour showcase of his cooking talent with wine parings for each course of his own creations not on the menu. Usually $50 per person and you are guaranteed to bring home a shopping bag of extra even if you have a great appetite! Fabio's talent will know your socks off---but you have to really know good stuff and be an open foodie, not for the picky eater-stay home!
