In 1967 Fabrizio came from Lucca Italy as a young man to pursue his dream of opening an authentic Italian restaurant. DS2_5015-1When he arrived in San Francisco, he enrolled in school to learn English while maintaining a full time job in restaurants in North Beach. After working as a waiter and in the restaurant business for 13 years, he knew he was ready to open his own restaurant and fulfill his long time dream.


After moving to Marin County with his wife, he began searching for the right location for his restaurant. He finally found a restaurant for sale in Larkspur on Magnolia Avenue. He bought this restaurant and soon after opened Ristorante Fabrizio in July of 1981. He spent half his time overseeing the kitchen and half his time in the dining room. Years have passed and Ristorante Fabrizio has become a respected part of downtown Larkspur businesses.
