One of the partners is still hands on and explains the menu with real passion. I ended up ordering all the specials and didn't... More

Paolo is extremely passionate about the food they serve here and I have to admit it was very good. The shared starter plate is very good and my beef was cooked exactly to my liking so no complaints. Paolo is a natural front of house talent with his warm enthusiastic personality and friendliness. This combined with the laid back Caribbean... More

We had a wonderful meal here. The owner is super nice and obviously cares very much that you have a wonderful experience at his restaurant, which we did. The menu selections are excellent. As most others have said, definitely try the suckling pig. My husband raved about the carpaccio di mere and I'm raving about the scallop appetizer special. It's... More

If you've never had Botarga, ask for it here. With homemade linguine, this Sicilian specialty is simply divine. Strong, salty, a little strange, but if you appreciate authentic cuisine, this won't disappoint. Classically, botarga is sun-dried fish eggs (roe). Abra's chef shaves them for his Linguine Botarga. I am also especially fond of their Carpacci di Mare, a succulent combination... More

Paolo is passionate about your food and your experience. The home made pasta is divine and the stuffed crepe was to die for. We highly recommend not leaving Antigua until you have eaten here! We are "foodies" and establishments like abracadabra make the world go round! Linda & Gunther Toronto March 2014

My sister and I took our parents to this restaurant for their 36 wedding anniversary. Even though my sister wasn't feeling well we still really enjoyed ourselves. As we were seated we were treated with complimentary champagne for our celebration. The owner very enthusiastically came by to describe the menu and special items. He is very passionate about the food... More
