  • Hostess without the mostest

    Our dinner reservation was off to a rocky start when we arrived at 5:55 for our 6:00 reservation. The hostess seemed very disorganized and kept asking for my name. She seemed to locate it and said our table wasn't ready yet. We waited about 10 minutes or so, and then after being told the waitress would seat is, the hostess and waitress seemed unsure of where to put our party and discussed he seating arrangement for another 5 minutes. Finally we were seated and enjoyed our dinner. However, when we were leaving, the waitress suggested that we use Open Table for our next visit! Say what? We did that!

    We go out to dinner about twice a week and I have to say that my dinner last night at Trattoria Abruzzo was one of the best meals I've had in Naples. Three of us ordered one of the specials which was a veal dish. The veal was so tender and tasty as was the tomato sauce used. I had it over their homemade parpadelle which was delicious. Just so good. Waitress was lovely and helpful. My only negative with the restaurant is that it pretty noisy, which is hard for me to hear my dinner companions. FYI, you usually have to wait a while to be seated even with a reservation.

    We had tried to get into this restaurant at the height of the tourist season and could not. You needed a reservation two weeks ahead. Now we know why. What a treat. I lived in Italy for three and a half years in the 70's and this place brought back great memories. The pasta is homemade and cooked al dente. I had veal that was so tender that I cut it with a fork. My wife had mussels in a spicy marinara sauce that she raved about and the portion was so large she took half of it home. The house pinot grigio was excellent and the wine list looked inviting. We had the best cappuccino since Italy. The wait staff was friendly and courteous. Hands down the best Italian restaurant in Naples.

    Dined on 8/20/2014
    We have dined at Trattoria Abruzzo a number of times and invited four of our friends to join us. We had talked-up the restaurant and expectations were high. Unfortunately, it was not as memorable as previous meals. I ordered the Orchetti with Brocolli Rabe and Sausage which unfortunately was flavorless. It tasted like the sauce was just packaged unsalted chicken broth. The sausages were bland and tasteless. My wife ordered the Chicken with Demi Glacé on a bed of arugula and again,not seasoned and bland. I don't know if TA has a new Chef or he just had an off evening, but it fell short from previous visits.

    The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. During the seasonal months, it is very hard to get a reservation, but it was not as difficult out of season. Everyone raves about this restaurant. There was a male who would walk around and sing for you at your table, he had a wonderful voice. I would definitely go back to this restaurant...................

    This small restaurant is excellent. Abruzzo is just south of Rome. That is where the owners come from and that is the type of food they serve. The food is fresh, the sauces are superb.

    A wonderful local dining gem with a fine selection of dishes. The lasagna is a definite treat and the scampi is great for those who may prefer seafood. Had an eggplant special for an appetizer that would have made a great main course as well.

    My cousin was visiting from Indiana--he just came back from Italy--he marveled at the freshness of the sauce, clams, mussels, and other seafoods in his dish.. I had my shrimp and cavatelli in fradiavola sauce. Going here again this week.

    Too noisy, too hot, and not worth returning. Food was fair to average. Air conditioning wasn't able to handle the warm and humid evening. Despite that they continually left the door open to accommodate servers delivering food to outdoor diners. Tables are very close to one another so you can hear the conversations of everyone surrounding you. since the restaurant is so small that means you can hear everyone.

    After living in Naples for seven months we found real Italian food without having to go downtown and play tourist. The good was authentic and the portion size was great. The service and entertainment were outstanding This trattoria beats all the " must go to" restuarants. It is small well priced and a great find for the locals and their visitors

    This restaurant is in an unassuming spot in a strip mall but you can tell by the patrons that's it's a popular local eatery. The pasta was delicious. The strolling guitarist was a nice touch and the service was attentive without being cloying. We'd recommend Trattoria Abruzzo without pause.
