Fabulous

Very busy and service was a bit slow but the pace was perfect for date night. Excellent and reasonably priced wine selection. We had the oysters (small but tasty; pair with presecco) the carpaccio (best in town) the duo of beef and the risotto (perfectly seared scallops).

I ate at Abruzzi on a Wednesday night after being turned away from David's Bistro for lack of a reservation. My bartender, Andrew, saw that I was by myself and was quite friendly. We chatted about good things to do in London and he was quite an expert on the local nightlife. I ordered the scallops and risotto, let me... More

My son's girlfriend's parents were in town from North Carolina. We wanted a great place to have a special meal and Abruzzi was our first choice. I had the beef tenderloin with braised beef gnocchi, outstanding! The sea scallops were amazing too. My son had the sockeye salmon, he said it was excellent. The food is always fantastic as is...

My husband and I had always wished to try this restaurant in London so we did so for our anniversary on July 21st. We will not be returning. Was not a splendid experience for a restaurant of this caliber! Wonderful interior and décor. Great service! But that is where is ends. The food was not terrible but nor was it... More

We are from the Niagara area and had an early Tuesday morning appointment in London so decided to spend Monday night and have a date night. Abruzzi was not our first pick (some restaurants are closed on Mondays) but am I ever happy we ended up here. The atmosphere is urban casual with a calm serene look (but when it's... More

We enjoyed an anniversary celebration with friends. The seafood and the pasta were spot-on, and the gnocchi was better than I remembered. Others were impressed with beef entrées and the specials. The acoustics were better on a weekday evening with the front windows open. Almost felt like we were in a larger city, thanks for a great evening and we... More

We have eaten here many times and we always experience fantastic food and service. The duck is excellent as is the halibut. The steamed muscles as an appetizer are great too. They have great pizza as well. It is right across from Budwieser Gardens and not far from the Grand Theater. So if you are going to a play, a... More
