My wife and I had dinner with another couple. We started at the bar with Negronis and wine. We were invited to take our table whenever we were ready. We started with the charcuterie plates and bruschetta. The grilled octopus was excellent, the sucking pig four ways very good and the gnocchi dishes memorable. The wine list was also very... More

I had a business dinner there earlier this week; second time in a month. Both times, the owner situated us in a private room and we were catered too professionally and indiscreetly while our meeting progressed through the night. The meal was delicious and the service excellent. Great location for a quiet evening; intimate and romantic for couples, family dining... More

From the food to the atmosphere to every possible detail you can think of-- there's never any complaints. As someone who frequently dines here, I'm almost waiting for an off night and it's never happened. Everyone I have brought here has loved it.

What a fabulous experience and a treasured gem. From walking in the door, to being sat at the table, to the server passionately describing the menu items, to the magnificent appetizers, the absolutely incredible (no words to do justice to the meal) main course...then a decedent dessert with an amazing cappuccino to finish...my goodness what an incredible experience from start...

What can I say about Abruzzi without possibly gushing? This is my favourite restaurant in the city. Before I begin, note that this is Italian "inspired," not classic or Italian-American like your nonna. Instead, it uses Italian food as the basis and adds creativity to them. For the appetizer, my date and I started off with the antipasti plate. It... More

I have been to Abruzzi a few times now, and I get excited each time I go. The great service begins right when you walk through the door, everyone is so friendly and accommodating. I have brought my grandmother here more than once (she uses a walker), and the staff are happy to help seat here and make her as... More

Abruzzi is an excellent fine dining restaurant in downtown London near the Budweiser Gardens. There is variety and creativity in the menu and all of the selections, which our group of 6 adults ordered were excellent. The only downside was the pricy and uninteresting deserts. I recommend that you choose having an appetizer over having desert. It can get noisy... More

We headed over to Abruzzi to celebrate a wedding anniversary, very recently. We had read the reviews and thought it would be a good spot to dine, as the positivity coming from reviewers had us interested. The prices on the menu did not scare us off, we are perfectly happy to pay for a quality meal. Upon arrival, the restaurant... More

Abruzzi is always a wonderful dining experience. The menu is unique and varied. The owner is always there and is attentive to ensure an excellent time, from the meal to the service. Staff are always informative with the menu and wines available. The food is fresh and is made on premise. We have been several times and it is our... More
