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

We had been here once before a few years ago invited by a friend. At that time we thought the food was kind of on the bland side and I do not prefer hot spicy meals. For this visit on July 13, 2014, again the food was bland and they were "out" of what I wanted to eat. Service was... More

Thank you for posting a review, although I'm sad to hear you think our food is bland. I'd love to know which menu items you ordered. We are starting to use Essential Oils in some of our dishes to get that healthy flavor without too much spice...we're open to suggestions on specific dishes. Please ask for a manager next time...

We recently held the Rehearsal Dinner for our son's wedding in the Abrusci's La Terrazza room. It was fantastic! During the planning, Nancy, was incredibly helpful. She worked with us to meet the dietary needs of guests for gluten and a vegetarian diet. She was flexible, professional, and accommodating. The night of our dinner was exceptional. The food was remarkably... More
