This is a neighborhood secret restaurant. Most people will pass it by because it is in a small strip mall in Lutz. I would like to keep it this way. It's difficult to get in without reservations, unless you come early. It has a nice, earthy atmosphere. The wait staff are some of the best I've experienced. They are friendly,... More

Top of the line Italian restaurant. The food was excellent. Hard to get into on weekends, I went on a weekday. A little expensive, but worth it. Very good for special occasions.

Over the past year or so, I have heard many great things about Nabruzzi. So I finally decided to try it. My wife and I went last night for an early dinner and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is kind of located in a strange place, and the interior will surprise you from what the outside looks like. They... More

Went to Nabruzzi's for Valentine's Day dinner. The ambiance was great, the food was amazing and the service by our waitress, Esterina, was superb!!! Hands down the best service ever!!!!!!!
