Great cuisine

On the occasions we have gone to Western to visit our daughter, Abruzzi, which we happened upon after a campus tour, has been a favourite for lunch and dinner. Great tasting food and good service.

The word has got out that this restaurant has good food, but so much that it is crowded! I found it hard to talk to the person I was dining with because the other tables were so close and with the open concept it is a lot of people talking at once!

It's a perfect spot for a big table dinner. We had 9 people and conversation was easy, service was right on in every area from timing to all mains served at once. Good drinks, I was having Martinis before we ordered a few really nice bottles of red. Not a good place if you want a really quiet romantic type... More

This was the first visit for my wife & I and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was incredible .. the grilled beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection with a lovely sear outside and so tender it just melted in your mouth. Ditto for the sea scallops. My wife really enjoyed the beet salad. Service was professional and impeccable.... More

first time i have had the pizza (margharita) it was excellent, service was excellent as always, my only complaint this particular visit was I was not offered a table (I was by myself) but the bar which was comfortable but made me feel too conspicuous. There were tables available and it was a couple of hours till dinner. Last time... More

I was very happy when I found a delicious vegetarian option. The POTATO GNOCCHI couldn't be better. The taste was outstanding and the service friendly.

I went here with my fiancé for our anniversary dinner. Luckily we had made reservations because the place was packed. The décor is very nice, though I was expecting a fancier bathroom, but my biggest complaint about the atmosphere is the noise. I could barely hear my fiancé across the table above the other customers talking and the music (the... More

I have been a dedicated patron for years and finally am getting around to reviewing Abruzzi. This is my favourite place in London, Canada. I live here and eat out often, so I can attest to the high praise given to Abruzzi. This restaurant is outstanding in all aspects -- menu, ambiance, service, location, and the care given to it...

There were four of us and everyone enjoyed their dishes. BUT the place is so noisy that I had trouble hearing the person sitting across the table from me and could only catch what his wife said about 25% of the time. Food prices are very good and wine prices are a bit to very high for London. Service was... More
