Had dinner there with a group of friends, food was excellent , service was very good. Wife had chicken Marsala which she said was excellent, great bread basket to start dinner with. The only complaint was the sun blinded us for over an hour, looking straight into it and you cannot even see the person across from you, asked to... More

My wife and I had the house specialty (Rigatoni and sausage in a tomato cream sauce with fresh basil), family style. Also had a glass of chianti recommended by the server. Both were excellent.

Went to Abrusci's for dinner one evening with a couple of friends while I was in town and I am SO glad that we did. The entire table enjoyed their dinners. I had the chicken marsala and it was fabulous - the asparagus was perfect! My friends are both gluten free and they fully appreciated having nearly an entire menu... More

I love that when you are seated the waiter brings bread and a plate of herbs smothered in olive oil. I could make a meal of that and a glass of wine. They are not stingy with the wine. The glass has to have six ounces of wine. I almost forgot about dinner. I had the chicken Marsala which was... More

I have stopped at the Chili's many times and never noticed Abrusci's which is right behind it. They were crowded but everything moved along well. The waiter was excellent but the food was just Ok. I liked the setting and staff enough to give them another try.

Like most New Yorkers I consider myself pretty much an authority on Italian restaurants sheerly based on the number of high quality establishments in and around NYC. Snobby? Yes. Keeping that in mind I recently found myself in Colorado on business and a suggestion was made to visit Abrusci's. It was with some trepidation that I left my comfort zone... More

We hosted a post-baptism lunch for approximately 50 people in a private room within the restaurant. The owner took a collaborative approach in planning the menu and details for the event. The space, food and service were all exemplary. Not only was all of this offered at a reasonable price, but the restaurant did not charge us for pans of... More

I needed Italian food for a wedding rehearsal dinner that I was hosting at our mountain lodge. Mike and the staff were very helpful to get me set up with ziti, bread, dipping sauce and a green bean and tomato side dish. They let me borrow an insulated hot box to keep it hot for a few hours. The food... More

Total experience was bad. Cold filling in pasta. Marinara from a can? 3 people in our party did not finish their entree.

We try to eat at Abrusci's when we are in town. They cater to our food allergies, and the wait staff is knowledgeable and helpful. We were a little disappointed this time, it seemed a little pricey, when two of us spit a meal and a salad. They were out of the wedge salad, and the spinach substitute was less... More

Thank you for your review...you are right, we need to hire more people. We have in fact hired several already but still need a couple more as several staff have taken summer vacations at the same time. I apologize for the slow service...it is being remedied quickly. Hope you give us another chance next time you're in town...please ask for... More
