Fabiolus Cafe Restaurant Review

: On a gradually gentrifying stretch of Sunset Boulevard --- far less glamorous than a mile or two West --- is this last remaining branch of a once-trendy mini-chain that’s always high on the lunch-crowd list. The panini, served with a salad, are always a draw, but there is much more on the menu. At dinner, pastas range from lasagna to penne alla vodka, and a number of risotto and gnocchi options create added interest. Entrées like salmon in lemon-celery sauce, lamb chops and steak arrive with grilled polenta and vegetables. For dessert, consider tiramisu or an orange zest-enhanced ricotta cheesecake. The interior is practical, light and airy, with walls covered by an eclectic collection of items. Fabiolus has a pleasant wine list, with plenty of interesting bottles from California and Italy priced in the $20 to $40 range.
