  • "Good location for a good restaurant. Unfortunately this one falls short. Sign inside restaurant states all meals prepared fresh so be prepared for a little wait on food which is fine. We ordered, ate and were prepared to leave in 25 minutes. Gives you a clue on the quality! "

  • "My wife and i both ordered veal dishes. Her marsala came with a side of pasta -- mine with a red sauce including red peppers and kalamta olives over wide noodles. The veal was excllent in both. However she did not enjoy the sauce on her pasta -- saying that it tasted as though poured from a can. My sauce was very good, although not as thick as I like. The food was served warm, but not hot. The spumoni dessert was outstanding. The restaurant was small, overcrowded and very noisy but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The staff did its best to accomodate the overflow crowd. Live music was a nice touch. Because this restaurant is far from intimate; we would return only with a small group. We wish them continued success."

  • "From the Italian tile setting to the hot bustling kitchen to the staff to the eggplant appetizer, this restaurant takes you to Tuscany. Our favorite date night eatery. The staff and owners are friendly. It is apparent they are proud if their food and their workplace. We try to go every chance we can get. Don't let the strip mall setting fool you because what comes from behind the kitchen is what it's all about! Try the FRESH tomato red onion and gargonzola creme salad. DELISH!"

  • "This place is awful. The food the service it is a disaster. Ordered wine and no one could agree which was the correct bottle due to Italian wine. Six waitresses arguing and brought the wrong bottle in the end. The kitchen or waitress forgot our appetizer and argued loudly whose fault it was. Waitress decided to bring out salads first without asking. Appetizer came out cold sent it back new one was colder yet. My dinner Trio was cold and tasteless and my girlfriends pasta and kale had tree trunk size stems and no flavor.Olive oil on table was poor even question if olive oil. Requested manager/owner at end of meal and a waitress came over and admitted wrong bottle of wine and then another waitress came over and said it was the right bottle."

  • "The food at Abruzzo is so good it's a shame the staffing & service can't match. We arrived for our 8:15 reservation, but no-one was staffed at the host/hostess stand. Someone came by after 5 minutes to say they were running 10-15 minutes late. Several other guests arrived a few minutes later - but no one spoke to them the whole time. We got seated at 8:45 - 30 minutes late. And it took another 15 minutes for the waitress to come by for drink order. The food was very good and authentic. But even food that good isn't worth being treated with such disregard."

  • "the food at this restaurant ,in general has been quite good. However,the wait time for a reservation is always long(last time was 45 minutes ) and the service is very slow and not necessarily accommodating. It's unfortunate because it could be a lovely dining experience."

  • "We have been to this restuarant many times and decided to go for our annivrersary. Food and service was outstanding as usual. The singing at our table made this night special for us. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants great food."

  • "Neighborhood restaurant that always seems popular, so had to try it. Reserved online and asked for outside table. When arrived, hostess said there was a "computer mix-up" and that we would be seated inside. We insisted on outside and she provided us w/ an outside table - not happily, however. We felt that it was their error, not ours. Service was good - food was excellent. Prices were very reasonable. We'll probably return and try other menu items. "Thank you" to the hostess for agreeing to seat us outside. I know it's not an easy job keeping everyone happy."

  • "The place is small so have a reservation during busy times. Place was busy. Service was ok. Waitress forgot my dad's soup, but the entrees were all delicious. I had chicken with sundried tomatoes and artichokes. Mom had chicken Marsala and dad had the veal special. All were delicious and the homemade pasta is a big plus. We will be back."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Salads and appetizers arrived in minutes after we placed our order. Then before they were finished - our entrees appeared. We were never asked if we wanted another glass of wine - guess they figured we'd linger too long. It was obvious they wanted the table turned over. Great food though!"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Food was excellent !!! Homemade pasta was very light and well dressed. We sat close to the kitchen so we had a very close look at the other entrees being served."

  • "Have eaten here many times. This time took friends from out of town. The chicken francese was very small and my swordfish was tough. Not our best meal there. Othertimes it was SPOT ON GREAT FLAVOR."

  • "Boy lousy service can wreck a good meal and that was the case Saturday. From the time we checked in (and was told our reservation was for two and not four) and after I showed them my open table note stating it was for four ("we are having trouble with our digital services" was their excuse) to poor service and another attack of fruit flies, I will stay away from here."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Wonderful experience! The food had favors other restaurants only wish to present. We will repeat this visit as often as our waistlines permit. Also, the talented roaming guitarist is a great touch. A very friendly and warm staff and a respectable wine list. Get ready for real Italian!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "It always amazes me how some restaurants don't care about the total package. First off, we waited 25 minutes before we were even acknowledged by anyone. In a place sooo small I have to think it's impossible that no one saw us just standing there in the doorway in which servers pass through because at least 1/2 of the tables are located out on the patio of a strip mall. It's unfortunate because the food is really good but they either need to move into a larger place, hire more people or take fewer reservations. Seemed to me people like to hang around and sing and while that's fun and unique maybe they can't count on as many table turns in a night."

  • "The food is the best Italian we have had inn Naples. Pappardella Elena is wonderful, ordered by one of our party each time and it get raves. I ordered Pollo Carciofini after having a taste of it last time and it is great served over some spaghetti. Our friends both had a veal special that they loved. Both times there was a special appetizer that we all shared, sort of a lasagna noodles with eggplant and marinara sauce, it is fabulous. One complaint was that one of the vents was dripping drops of water on one person, we were allowed to move the table and it was mopped up after a while. Also we felt rushed after we finished the meal and did not want dessert or coffee, the check was thrown on the table."

  • "Trattoria Abruzzo is the best Italian restaurant we found in Fla. The food, service and atmosphere is excellent. Momma's pasta is one of a kind. It reminds us of the old time Italian restaurants we grew up with in New York."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Small place at one end of a strip mall. Easy access. Quality of the food was excellent and our service was great. Made the mistake of ordering the specials, one corvina fish and one veal dish, without asking the price. Both were delicious, but small portions and way over the reasonable price point of the other entres."
