    This was our first time at Abbiocco and we were pleasantly surprised at how nice it is, especially considering some of the reviews. The cocktails were superb and the bar area is really nice. The menu is a bit limited, but the food was excellent. A bit pricy, but everything is these days. I'd go back.

    8:00 reservation, didn’t get apps until 9:15 and dinner until 10:10. Out of the four apps, one was good and three not good. The shrimp and scallop scampi app was way overdone, Caesar salads did not taste like Caesars. They were missing the garlicky anchovy flavor and tasted only of lemon. Out of the four entrées only one was good. The pork chop was delicious, but the three fluke franchises were very overcooked and without flavor. The escarole it was served with came with raisins, making the dish too sweet, and the sauce had capers, making it piccata not franchise.

    The lights were dim, the print on the menu small and in Italian so it was very difficult to read. We needed a flashlight and a magnifying glass to read the menu. My wife and I have crossed this restaurant off our list of restaurants that we will go to.

    I love going out to a nice restaurant and don’t mind paying more for quality food. The service is great and I do love the food but it’s just crazy expensive for no reason. I would definitely go more if they didn’t charge over $30 dollars for a plain pasta dish.

    Food was good. Atmosphere good and our server was great and sweet. BUT the bus people ruin it for you. They gave us bread and literally 5 min later tried to take it all away??? Then the other 3 people ate theirs and I was saving for appetizers and he took it away again. Bread should be replenished let alone taken away before its touched before we even ordered. Then no refills on the water the whole meal. Again, the bus people grabbed our dinner plates while still chewing. That just made what could of been a nice meal uncomfortable.

    Dinner started off with a dirty martini. It was fair , olive brine that was not very good. We had blue cheese olives in martini and when the bill came we were charged 6 dollars extra for the 6 olives. This was in addition to the 16 dollars per drink. Never had that happen in any restaurant or bar before. Bread was brought to the table in a wooden box. Bread was average. Being an Italian restaurant you would think the bread would be better. Accompanying the bread was olive oil. The olive oil had a bitter taste, it was clearly NOT extra virgin. It was the oil you would cook with in the kitchen. It was in a white dish and was yellow in color not green like extra virgin would be. Appetizers came. Octopus and a pasta dish. Pasta dish was good. Octopus was tender but had no flavor. Beans that came with octopus were hard and undercooked and no flavor. Main courses were pork chop and the veal chop. Veal chop and pork chop were average but for the price you would expect better. Desert was flourless chocolate cake which was very good. Overall experience was fair. This place is marketed as an upscale Italian restaurant and really did not meet that expectation. Dinner for two was 195 dollars. Not much value for the money.

    Service and food are equally important and Abbiocco was on point last night. We were greeted by a young lady who smiled immediately and welcomed us to the restaurant. She continued to walk us to our reserved table in bar area as requested, we noticed the bar had 2 seats available and asked to sit at the bar instead. She said absolutely, no problem. We are so happy we did! Bartender Helen Ann was friendly, knowledgeable and I would say a Pro at making cocktails. The Tucson Sunset is delicious but be careful they go down easily! We shared the buccatini amatriciana for our appetizer. I had veal sorrentino and husband had chicken scarpariello. We both enjoyed everything and would order everything again. Dinner isn’t complete until you have dessert! I had Strawberry zabaglione and enjoyed every bite! Hubby had Affogato and wouldn’t share :( I also feel the need to mention that we really enjoyed the crowd at the bar. Good company I almost don’t want to bring attention to this restaurant, hoping we always have a seat at the bar! Monica & Vincent

    There is potential, but just not yet. Compared to similar in area, food does not come close, basic entre issues with 3 out of 4 in our party. Wait staff was not in sync with kitchen resulting in slow, untimely food presentation. Charging higher prices does not make it better.

    I am a retired chef with over twenty years experience. We first went to the bar to have drinks. Yes we as in me and my wife had to beat back the fruit flies at the bar. First let me say that are waiter John was great. Now to the bad part. The fruit flies followed us to the table. Actually the were already there. Let’s now talk about the food. Appetizers Baked Clams and Polpo (Octopus). Did not know that there were actually clams all you tasted was dry bread crumbs. The Polpo was soft and mushy and had no flavor. Now to entrees. The Pork chop Giambot was a mushy piece of pork piled high in peppers. Next Veal Sorrentino if you want to call it that! First it had no flavor. I could not find the Eggplant I really did look. It looked like somebody quickly sautéed some veal cutlets and laid cheese eggplant? and tomato on top with a sauce that tasted more like dish water. Somebody in the kitchen should actually try tasting the food first. What I should have done was sent the food back and left, but it was my wife’s birthday and did not want to start anything. What is really upsetting is that I paid a big price for this. Should have walked out left a big tip for John which I did and not paid for the food if you want to call it that. Oh by the way when we got home it was not pretty. My wife was so mad that I actually paid the bill. Signed party of two at seven o’clock
