Pizza on this end of town

Casella's last night had an hour to an hour and a half wait for pizza last night- needless to say at 7PM that does not really work. While I love Casella's and am grateful it delivers, we decided we had to try something new.

I will never tell anyone "this place has the best pizza" since pizza love is so individual. We decided to try Fabio's Italian Restaurant on High St (in the old Pizza Hut building, BTW has Pizza Hut abandoned this fast growing end of town or what?). I feared the worst but I was pleasantly surprised. The pizza is good and quick. Fabio's has a great menu of diverse things (calzones, salads, mozz. cheesesticks, lunch specials, hamburgers, you get the idea). It doesnt have a website for you to check out so you will just have to trust me and check it out. They have a small seating area but last night at 7PM one could easily have sat down and eaten your pizza. Fabio's does not deliver but is close to everything so it is to pick up. Seems like Fabio's is pretty family friendly too. I am always glad to patronize local business and I am glad to know there is a nice place for pizza on this end of town now that the students are swarming at Barracks Road.

Historical Note:

The people who own and operate Casella's, when they first got started ran "Sbarro's" at the "indoor" Fashion mall. This was back in the mid 80's, and when Sbarro's was located down near JC Penny's. Of course they used their own Pizza recipe instead of the chain one. And when Sbarro' finally moved to where it is now- that was when they opened up Casella's at Barrack's Road.

While I haven't been to Casella's in a long time. I remember their food as good. I also discovered that I like "Anna's Pizza." Down near Fontaine (?). Of course it's pretty difficult to mess up pizza.

We picked up a pizza there last night. It was Really Really good.

My wife, who can get your life story 10 min after meeting you, of course found out some things about the place.

The owners recently sold a similar restaurant in Gordonsville. Not going out there, ever, I don't know what it is.

So they're no novices and they did a bang-up job on the pizza. Deliciouso.

Fabio's is a great place, I live in Belmont and go there all the time. You should really try out their double layer pizza, it is the best thing you will ever taste.
