Last day in Colorado and chanced into Abrusci's. Good greeting bode well for the meal. Seated immediately and noticed full tables from singles to parties of 12. Fine ambience. The menu offered lamb oso bucco, the we love so we ordered from Casey, our attentive server. He offfered some suggestions to go with the entre as well. Being a bit... More

This is our go-to place for good Italian. Service is always great. Food is always great. Ask for Steve's rigatoni special of the day. It's usually great. Prices are god. Wine selection is nice.

I must thank Dave for his help in planning our family event last Thursday at Abrusci's. Dave assisted in helping me with every detail and did so on his day off. This is a comfortable and welcoming restaurant and the food is excellent. Hilda our server was extraordinary in every way. I recommend Abrusci's if you want excellent food along... More

We held a family event at Abrusci's as part of a memorial service for a loved one. They were so supportive and helpful with the planning of this large event -- they really made if easy. Moreover, our server, Hilda, took excellent care of our large party. She was attentive to every guest in our large party and was helpful... More

Nothing was amiss with our visit to Abrusci's. The staff was attentive, friendly and incredibly knowledgable with the menu. I don't typically order fish, but their special of the night was so intriguing, I had to go with it: Pan-seared sea bass, over coconut-infused risotto, with a saffron coconut sauce. Easily the best fish meal I've ever had (previously, it... More

The rigatoni with sausage was to die for. And the tiramisu..... mmmmm! Kacey was a great waiter, taking care of our every need. He even brought soda water on a towel for a spill. Very impressive. I can't wait to go back!

Abrusci's has been a standard in our neighborhood for at least 10 years. The sign used to read Best Damn Italian Food Period, but they had to edit it a bit for the neighbors. We love to order family style, as we get about 50% more food for the money and have great leftovers to take home. Nice wine list.... More

We always enjoy our dinners here. Our waiter Kacey took good care of us. I liked my chicken marsala and especially liked it served with polenta. My husband's scallops were great. Enjoyed the roasted garlic spread for the bread! Just a great place to dine.

This weekend, I took my wife and daughter there. We had a wonderful lunch at Abrusci's. First of all, Troy, a waiter, gave us an excellent service; he is very good at his job. He made us feel welcome as soon as we sat at the table. He was very polite to us, and we appreciated it very much. We... More

Just like the title says the food is great but the couples times I have been there I got bad service from the hostess, not the kitchen or servers. Since that's the first thing you deal with when entering this place it dropped the score significantly. So I would give it another try but third time is either the charm... More

Hi Shelby, thank you for your review and your high marks on our food. I'm sorry to hear about our hostess being rude...I find it hard to believe especially twice but our hosts are young. We are making a couple of changes with our front of house staff this month - new hires as well as training - would you... More
