The noise! The noise!

If one went to restaurants for the food and nothing else, this were a clear winner. Excellent. I had suckling pig scaloppine, my daughter a risotto with asparagus and other stuff. All very good. My Chardonnay was passable. The waitress was charming. Why then not 5 or at least 4 stars? The noise... read more

From the moment we walked in til the time it came to leave, the service was perfect and the food was fantastic. It was incredibly busy when we were there, completely booked with reservations and they were still doing their best to atleast seat walk ins at the bar, yet the service never fell flat, despite being at capacity.

I ate here for the 1st time with my wife and we had an excellent meal. The dining room is small but has a very warm atmosphere and our waiter was extremely helpful and gave us some great advice regarding their menu. I ordered the Roasted Octopus appetizer which was incredibly tender and possibly the best I have ever had.... More

My last review of Abruzzi was three years ago and this restaurant remains our favorite. I thought I would update my older review to simply highlight that the quality of food and service at Abruzzi has not only stayed the same but seems to have even gone up a notch the last time we visited. Such a great little restaurant.... More

I have just had another fantastic meal at Abruzzi's! Imagine dining in a warm atmosphere, where you are welcomed, as if into someone's home and then treated to a delightful meal, accompanied by wonderful wine and served by a friendly and professional server. The pear, duck confit, gorgonzola pizza was yummy, with a perfect crispy crust. The beat salad was... More

The dishes at Abruzzi's are very authentic Italian, some with a nice little twist. Every dish was full of flavour. The gnocchi were fantastic, and the tiramisu was top notch. The service was lacking a little, in terms of attentiveness and enthusiasm about the dishes, and these are only reason I would rate it 4/5 rather than 5/5.

This is an excellent restaurant. We are very mindful of not eating junky grains, but finding a restaurant that serves whole-grain pasta is next to impossible. No longer! Abruzzi features terrific angel-hair pasta with seafood. Delicious. Their steak was outstanding, and my son adores steak so he is somewhat of a connoisseur. He rated the steak very highly. The gnocchi... More

My husband and I really enjoy this lively and busy place with great tasting food! I just love the organic beet salad for an appetizer and the casarecce pasta dish with beef tenderloin, truffle sauce and pecorino romano cheese for my main course. Rob, the manager/owner, always goes out of his way to make sure that we have a great... More
