Fabio on Fire: Wood-fired pizza and Italian cuisine

More from this show

Fabio on Fire is an authentic, charming Italian restaurant and bakery, home to some of the best wood-fired pizza in the West Valley. Owner Fabio Ceschetti is from Italy, and the recipes he uses were created by his grandparents and his mother.

The restaurant quickly gained notoriety for its wood-fired pizza and handmade pasta dishes. “People love the pizza; the dough is made with a ‘starter’ that my grandfather made, and I brought it over from Italy when I opened the restaurant,” Ceschetti said. 

When you step inside the restaurant, it is warm and inviting: the oven is the soul of the restaurant. “My pizza is famous because it’s really light and not too hard on your stomach,” Ceschetti said. All the ingredients are imported from Italy. 

Guest Andre Licardi, who has been to Italy many times, suggested Fabio on Fire as his top pick. He orders the charcuterie board and the orecchiette handmade pasta with Italian sausage and broccoli.

Licardi goes on to describe their pasta as “terrific” and delicious. “You can tell that the pasta is handmade,” Licardi said. “It was like we were eating back in Italy.”

Guest Marlaina Larsen-Thorslev orders the homemade sacchettini stuffed with ricotta and butternut squash served with sage cream sauce and crispy prosciutto di Parma.

“The pasta was extremely light,” Larsen-Thorslev said, adding the “flavors were incredible.”

Guest Michelle Smith indulges in Fabio on Fire’s margarita pizza which she describes as the best wood-fired pizza she has ever experienced. 

One sweet treat that Michelle called “simply stunning” is their tiramisu, made in-house with real espresso coffee from Italy. “It was light and fluffy,” Smith added.

All of our guests enjoy the dining experience and would recommend Fabio on Fire to friends and family.
