Fulio's is a favorite spot for locals and a happy surprise for visitors. Here are a few of the nice reviews
“A wonderful gem of a place!”

We happened upon this place on a Monday night in Astoria, when many restaurants seemed to be closed. What a terrific
experience! Beautiful atmosphere and a fresh, creative menu at a reasonable price. Our favorite thing was the spedini
appetizer, a bread and mozzerella skewer with a kind of bruschetta topping that I've never seen anywhere else and was
out of this world. Would definitely go there again!

We stopped in on a rainy night in August, started with a fabulous grilled vegetable appetizer with crostini and it just
kept getting better. The waitress picked out a delicious , reasonably priced bottle of Italian wine for us. I had an
eggplant parmesan. My wife had a pasta dish. Both were superb.

So few establishments cook from scratch anymore, and at Fulio's you will discern the delightful palatable difference.
The delicate, fresh flavors will captivate you. The attentive, courteous staff make you feel welcome. I live in Astoria,
and it is my favorite restaurant. Truly, the best Italian dining in the Northwest.
“Good food, friendly service”

We recently took our yearly vacation down to Cannon Beach, OR. I found Fulio's Pastaria on a popular foodie website and
also checked out the reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to give it a try. It was GREAT food and we were surprised
because the last 2 years we've been to the beach, we've been completely unimpressed with the food.
The 30 minute drive from Cannon Beach to Astoria was SO worth it! The food was delicious!
I ordered the Puttanesca with Shrimp (though plain would've been just fine) and my husband ordered the Butternut Squash
Ravioli with Creamy Curry Sauce. We also ordered the Spedini Appetizer. I liked it but it was a little too much olive
oil for my taste.
This is the best place for good food in the area! I highly recommend it and will definitely come back. It's been hard
finding good eats in the area but this place was a HIT!
“My favorite restaurant”

We are a hard to please crowd, everyone likes something different. The kids want one thing, we want another. We all appreciate
good food though. Rigatoni with mustard and sausage was excellent, pasta cooked perfectly, steaks were exquisite. Service,
atmosphere were wonderful and the prices were not nearly as high as I expected for our special night out. We will visit
Fulios everytime we come to Astoria, no question.
“Great Dinner Fulio's”
April 5, 2007
It had been awhile since we had been to Fulio's. My husband first discovered this place on business trip with co-workers
and he knew I would love it. It was time for another meal here.
We were seated at a nice window table in a spacious, pretty leather booth. The ambiance is very nice, the dining rom is
immaculate. We enjoyed the yummy bread and olive oil and a glass of Chianti with our meal. We shared the spinach salad
which was so fresh with chopped tomatoes, a side of goat cheese and pine nuts, the dressing is warm, this is one of our
favorite spinach salads and we dine out very frequently all over the West Coast.
My entree was the Linguine with Spicy Sausage which was very good, the red sauce was perfectly prepared with nice chunks
of tomato in the sauce. The sausage was not too spicy, just right and full of flavor.
My husband had the Fettucini which he said was very good and we shared a slice of the Flourless Chocolate cake which was
decadant and rich.
A very nice place for a meal my entree was only $9 which is an outstanding value for this calibar of food in Astoria.
Fulio's is an excellent choice for Italian food in Astoria and we will return again and again

We eat here about 5 times a year and typically during the day. My wife likes the sausage with a ground mustard sauce and
noodles. I've enjoyed the claim linguine which I think has been a special at times.
We usually come during the day because it is quiet. I did notice that the employees seem to be a little casual with
This is the place to have Italian food on the North Coast. Reseanable prices and great food!!!!
“Fabulous Italian food & more”
February 28, 2007
I have visited Astoria twice in the past few months and we ate at Fulio's at least ten times, after trying a few other
places and knowing we could trust the food, service, selection and ambiance. I don't know what this person is
talking about foul language from the kitchen--never heard anything like that--not once. This is delicious Italian
food and steaks at a very reasonabl price. Check out the grilled Caesar salad and the unusual presentation of

Seems like along with the atmosphere Fulio's has adopted Italy's laid back atmosphere to serving and eating also. I took
my 4 yr old in to eat one afternoon a few weeks ago.
The decor is splended and the seating is interesting and comfortable.
The service was good, but I have to mention that it took a very long time to get our food. I do plan to go to Italy
this October so I feel this is a mentality that is carried over from there. Dining there is an all afternoon long
experience. But on the other hand nothing is preprepared, everything is made on the spot, so everything is fresh and
tastes better.... course everything tastes better the hungrier you are.
My son and I shared a meatball sandwich on foccacia bread with a side of noodles with butter. I would have liked some
garlic on the noodles and maybe som mazithera (goat cheese) YUMMY. But the sandwich was awsome, warm and I shared a
few huge meatballs with my son, he loved them.
It was about $8.50 for the meal, which was good as it was even cheaper than I would have paid at MD's ;). So I do
recommend this restaurant, but I would not bring more than one child as the wait might be quite long. It would be
a perfect choice for couples or a group of adults that could subsist on appetizers or wine for awhile while waiting.
