The food was excellent, with the Tutto Mare, and Cappellini Mediterranean. We sat in the back, which is supposed to be the nicer part of the restaurant. It was loud, and crowded. I would still go back, just felt that the atmosphere lacked.

Just....wow. The food was just terrible. For a restaurant that prides itself on being authentic italian cuisine, it was far from it. I order the pasta primavera -- simple and usually expertly done by restaurants. What I received was nothing less than a plate of cheap rotini noodles (not authentic italian), overcooked frozen vegetables, which appeared and tasted like they... More

One thing I desperately miss in Little Rock is any kind of local Italian restaurant. So I really appreciate going to Gianfabio's any time I come to town. Pretty upscale for Italian, but worth it.

After a long day of corporate meetings, the boss to the entire crew out to a marvelous dinner at Gianfabio's. Large parties can be a handful but the staff was on top of their game. They were warm, friendly, attentive, and engaging. The appetizers were delicious. The wine list was filled with brilliant choices from Italy, California, and beyond. The... More

I called ahead to check that they could handle a group... I was told yes. When we arrived we were seated at separate tables, but when asked to add more people it was a disaster. Their system would not work that way and they needed to have tables for walk-ins. The place was empty. As we exited because we were... More

We brought in our party of 20. The staff was very unwilling to attempt to keep our party together with an empty dining room. They said it would be to much trouble as their computer system is not set up that way. They also stated they wanted to keep tables open for walk ins. The manager or owner in an... More

This is a go to place when you want a nice/quiet time with really good food that is consistently GOOD. The wait service is as good as the food, it's family owned, been around for a longtime and can always be counted on for a Great meal.

This is our go-to place for special occasions. Never have we been disappointed. Sad that our favorite waiter, Joe, is no longer there, but still an enjoyable dining experience.

Great atmosphere. Seafood special surprisingly good. Spumoni outstanding. Fresh bread was a big hit with our group. Pizza was decent.

This place smells so good! All those wonderful Italian aromas. I had the Gnoggi with pesto and my husband had a spaghetti special. Our house salads were very good. It was an attractive dining room and the wait staff were very cordial. We will return again.
