Born in Eboli, Italy, Fabio began playing rugby at youth level at Battipaglia Rugby, moving to Overmach Rugby Parma F.C. when he was 18 where he would stay from 2001/02 to 2007/08.
Staibano represented the French team of Castres Olympique for the 2008/09 and 2009/10 seasons before joining Aironi for the 2010/2011 season.
Staibano has 9 caps for Italy with this first cap coming on 11 June 2006, in a 52-6 win over Japan, in Tokyo.
The tighthead prop moved to Wasps in the summer of 2012 after news that Aironi had run into financial difficulties and would cease to function as a professional outfit.
