Restaurant in Charleston, West Virginia

Customer Reviews

We are from out of town and we're looking for a sit down Italian meal. Seems this town has a lot of pizza places, but few that focus on cuisine. Bottom line up front: very good Italian in the American tradition. No, not like what I've eaten in Florence, Rome, and Venice, but the food was honest and flavorful for the U.S. I ordered the calabrese salad, chicken Marsala, and shared the cheese cake. The portions were good. I'm definitely full. The garlic bread is as tasty as advertised. The salad was fresh, well presented, and hit the spot. The chicken was tender and moist and the sauce was delicate and mushroomy. Our server was quick and courteous with a very good awareness of the menu.

What a great place with great food and timely service. We visited as a night out with the outlaws and was more than pleasantly pleased. I had the "fresh" veal parmigiana and I must tell you, it was outstanding. We will certainly be back again. Nice job Fazio!!

Just had my annual birthday party for 40 people there. They are without doubt the best Italian restaurant around. They are family owned and worked. The staff is amazing and accommodating. The selection is huge and the wine list is very diverse. Can't say enough about Danny and Marsha. Love them.

If you can get over the strange and outdated decor, this place is absolutely amazing. From the cheese spread with cantaloupe, to the garlic toast, to the entrees, they put a lot of work into everything that goes on the table. I never would have thought of ordering filet at an Italian restaurant... I always got pasta. However, I tried their blackened filet and it is now probably my favorite food in the whole world, and the best steak I've had anywhere. The minestrone is also incredible!

Charming old-world Italian charm. Amazing minestrone soup. Incredible bread. Made-to-order pasta dish to accommodate my special diet was divine. Very attentive waiters. Best Italian food I have had in a very long time. Can't wait to come back!

There's not many restaurants like Fazios. It's so stuck in time -- and I mean that in a good way -- it has become a true classic. The food is great: it's all of the Italian-American classics that you grew up with, but there's been no attempts to "update" them or add "fine dining" twists. It's the old reliable standbys done exceptionally well. Love the bread, salad, pasta dishes and classics like veal or eggplant parmigiana. The specials are usually great, too!

This is an old style Italian yes a little dated but I think that's what I liked about the place. Kinda reminds me of the old school Italian restaurants I go to in RI & CT. The service was very good place and the place is very clean. The food is traditional Italian type like spaghetti and meatballs, chicken parm etc. all at pretty reasonable prices. We went with group of 14 and everybody was very happy with the food will be back when in area.

Great little yet big place. The food was good if I were you skip the regular pasta dishes get the fish or a steak dish. They are so good! The wait staff was great too. They actually did take the time out to talk and joke with you.

Fazio's is one of my staff's favorite places to dine. My Washington team always joins my West Virginia team at Fazio's for a meal when they are in town. Your cuisine is truly authentic and your homemade sauce cannot be topped. Thanks for your wonderful Italian eats.
