This is a nice place to go if you're in Wheat Ridge or Lakewood. It doesn't necessarily stick out and I found prices to be a tiny bit high but the food is nice quality, good wine list and a nice family, neighborhood spot. They also offer gluten free options which are very tasty and such a nice... read more

Wonderful food in a very pleasant atmosphere. View from the street doesn't do it justice. Family size option on dishes is economical and fun. Had 3 family size dishes for six and had plenty of food. Lots of dishes I've never seen before, and all good. Wish I lived close enough to go there often!

A friend recommended Abrusci's for Italian, so the family went on a Fri night. We were pleased with the prices and portions on all the food we ordered. We had the family portion of the spinach salad, which was wonderful and then moved on the chicken parm for the main course, enough chicken for four although the pasta could have... More

When this restaurant opened, we couldn't keep away, the food was fresh and well made and spicy. But it's not what it used to be. Their pizzas used to be large with house made crust that was brushed with olive oil and garlic on the sides before baking. They used to make the best Aglio Olio I've ever tasted, spicy... More

We stopped in for lunch on our way through town. Everything we ate was very good and good portion sizes, but a tad pricey for lunch. It was disappointing when my husband asked for parmasean on his pasta and the waitress retrieved a shaker instead of freshly grated cheese.

I am very picky when I go out to eat because I cook myself. Everything from the sausage and peppers appetizer, to the entree and dessert was fantastic. I am from the east coast and this was like east coast Italian food. The service was great. Eric was a very pleasant waiter, friendly and efficient.

The sign for Abrusci's Italian restaurant is visible from I-70 in West Denver (Wheatridge) and it beckond us in. We were not disappointed. The servings were nice sized and the pasta was perfectly cooked. Service was friendly and answered all my questions. Two of us had the four course dinner that was featured as part of Denver's restaurant week. The... More
