Staff was super friendly. Server was helpful but not very attentive. Food was good but far from the best, flavors were bland. Beer and wine only. Parking is tuff, very small parking lot. Wouldn't go out of way to get here.

Worth the long drive we made on a friend's recommendation. The exterior hides a delightful surprise. Authentic Italian. Every staff member exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. Our server offered detailed information on the menu as...well as "off menu" items. While everything is delicious you have to try to the Tagliatelle Alla Vodka dish. Homemade from top to bottom. Serene atmosphere; reasonable prices. Definitely returning.More

This restaurant has been one I raved about. I have been a handful of times and it was always a good experience. I haven’t been in a long long time and brought someone last night who’s never been. The waitress was new, so not her...fault. I ordered a merlot, she let me know they were out and would bring me a wine similar. She came back with a white wine. She then gave me a light red, nothing comparable. I switched to a Malbec, and it tasted like it was open but not sealed properly and it was bitter. Also refrigerated. But the wine wasn’t the main issue. The soup was good, but Luke warm. The pasta, wasn’t cooked! At this point, with uncooked pasta we just laughed and ate it anyways. We were going to get desert, and decided not to eat it there, as everything has been pretty bad from the drink to the dinner: we were there for almost two hours…..service was slow which is okay, but to have uncooked pasta? So disappointing.More

Very congenial and pleasant place to visit. Staff friendly and helpful. Seafood dinner and eggplant parm were very good. Enough to take home! Pear pasta appetizer interesting. Only recommendation would be to have all entrees on the menu. Nice to have specials and server was...on target to let us know about other menu items. Eggplant parm (not on the menu) was perfectly delicious. Will definitely return. Reasonable prices, nice atmosphere.More

Barnabas was phenomenal! We have never had such an efficient, knowledgeable, friendly, and professional wait staff. He introduced us to all of the entrees, pizzas, and side dishes, as well as the specials for the day, in great detail. We were celebrating the birthdays of...two friends, and all of us chose something different - and delicious! Before we ordered the entrees, everyone at the table enjoyed the Mozzzarella Capresse and Calamari Fritti. Not a single bite was left! All of it was delicious. Husband and I had pizza - Avezzano and Traditional. Both were amazing! Friends who had the Fruitti Di Mare and Braciola Di Maiale Bellagio could not stop raving. One finished every bite of the former, and the other had to take half home since there was too much to finish. The birthday girls (65 & 89) had the Aragosta Ravioli Galietta (finished every bite!) and Vitello Nabruzzi (too much, and had to take half home). Unfortunately, two in our party did not care for their spicy veal. They complained that it was tough, and too spicy. Barnabas was so accommodating. He did not charge one for his entree as he did not want something else. Our friend (91) has a finicky palate and he has problems liking anything too unusual. He did enjoy the soup and bread. Our other friend (99) chose the risotto and pork - but only ate the risotto. Barnabas charged her only half as she only ate half of her entrée. She did enjoy the salad. The birthday girls got cannolis! Two of us had the Spumoni (decadent!) and another had the Coppa Catalana. It was so good - like the Spumoni. I didn't think I had room for Spumoni. But I did! We are definitely returning to Nabruzzi Trattoria. Everything (for us) was fabulous, and Barnabas was icing on the cake. We hope he will be there each and every time we return. He was the BEST!!More

My husband and I had dinner at Nabruzzi last night. We ordered brochette as a starter. The bread was very soggy and unappetizing. Tomatoes on top were just ok. We did not eat the appetizer. Our main course veal arrived and the presentation was very...unappetizing. The whole plate has a mushy appearance. The veal was tasty but the linguine was not cooked correctly. In fact it was close to being raw. The first time we ate at this restaurant the food was delicious. The second time was just ok. After last night needless to say we will never go back. With wine, appetizer, main entree, coffee and dessert the meal was costly and very disappointing.More

We joined friends who suggested Nabruzzi as a choice to get together over dinner. We live not too far away and always love to try new Italian dining. We were impressed the moment we entered by the atmosphere, all the people working, and the amazing...smell of garlic in the air. We ordered wine, sangria, Pollo Toscano, and Margherita Pizza. Everything was wonderful. Our server, Mathew was excellent! We also enjoyed the everything cheesecake! Never had cheesecake with bacon on top! Incredible! We will be back!More

We went to Nabruzzi last night for dinner - the men in our group ordered the "special" - which was good ..but not $46.00 worth. At no time did the waiter indicate the price of this special. The bill was paid and nothing was said,...but I feel it would have been more respectful to indicate the prices of the specials when describing the dish. Looking at their menu on line there is nothing anywhere near this price. We've gone there before and ordered off the menu. I just don't appreciate the fact that the price wasn't stated when given the ingredients/dish. It's not a matter of not affording it - but definitely a courtesy issue. The restaurant is vey busy (packed) and very loud - you can't hear the conversations at your table - which was another issue. I think they need to appreciate the customer a little more than they do.More

Recently went to Nabruzzi on a Tuesday night. We were greeted by the owners and wait staff. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable. We have always had wonderful food there including pasta, seafood, and meat dishes. This time we had an appetizer named Enzo Fiocchi,...a unique hand folded pasta stuffed with several cheeses in a balsamic reduction. We chose to have wood grilled pizzas and they were delicious ...... the flavor the freshness of the ingredients!!! Great place to go for casual dining.More

The menu is just the beginning of your gourmet experience at Nabruzzi. On this visit I introduced the restaurant to a friend. He's now a believer too. The atmosphere is dusky with a modest array of wall art. My third visit so far and each...one has been an extraordinary adventure in fine service, great food, and a pleasing ambience. We kicked it off with an antipasto mix of fine cheeses and meat. I tried one of the Chef Specials, a variation on seafood paella served over black vegetarian noodles rather than rice. Yikes! Both of us left with big smiles. I'll be back!More

Some friends introduced us to the restaurant. It’s excellent with very friendly and prompt service. A fan of Bella’s in South Tampa, this restaurant and the food is a notch or two above. Excellent appetizers and delicious pizza. Try the Fiocchi Di Enzo: a delicious...cheese filled pasta appetizer. The lobster filled ravioli is awesome. The Americano pizza is excellent. Just like Italy. All the deserts are great and tasty as well.More
