Pricy Italian food

Bit pricy for basic Italian food. it is down stairs but seems very well kept. Staff is friendly and food came out pretty quick. Nice place to go for a date or intimate meeting. Not the place to go for a quick meal. Pricy, so sit and relax and enjoy the surroundings. MAKE reservations !!!

Abruzzi is a place we go at least once a month. It has the best Filet, served with in house gnocci. This is an amazing dish and they cook the filet to perfection. It will blow your mind. They make all their pasta in house and the menu changes regularly enough to showcase what is fresh and trending. We often... More

We ate here in celebration of our 34th wedding anniversary... The wait staff was great and the food was AWESOME!! If you get a chance to dine here make reservations and don't miss out on a great Italian meal.

Firstly, the service was friendly. no problems there. I was just really disappointed that I spent $70 on a really average meal for 2 people! that was just one main each and two non-alcoholic drinks! We both had pasta - my partner enjoyed his but agreed it wasn't worth the price tag. Mine was just okay, the pasta was average... More

My daughter picked this restaurant because she was in the mood for spaghetti. But she ended up ordering another main dish with an child's portion of spaghetti on the side. Good thing - the spaghetti tasted like canned spaghetti. The rest of the food was good though, and my soup and salad were excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful.... More

It was the night of my grand daughter's 8th grade graduation which started at 6:30 in Arcata. I made the dinner reservation for 5:00 for 4 people. We were ready a bit early at the hotel so we went to Arcata and killed some time window shopping. It was about 4:45 when we went into Abruzzi. I told the girl... More

We went to this restaurant which served gluten free options in pasta and cooking. The service was excellent even in a packed restaurant on a Friday night. The food was tasty and authentic Italian with a variety of pasta dishes available at reasonable prices, the gluten free options were plentiful and cooked perfectly.

My wife and I dine at Abruzzi for our anniversaries and attempt Valentines Day, etc. when we are thinking clearly and make reservations early. Intimate dining, always see friends, enjoy the wonderfully creative dishes and chocolate paradiso for dessert. My wife always enjoys a glass or two of good chardonnay. Great service, attentive management, always a rewarding experience!
