They say a small kitchen makes the house big. Here at trattoria Abruzzo we take pride in our small kitchen and our big heart, where everything is made from scratch and with love.
Owner Paola Laccetti left Italy and moved to Naples FL in July 2012. She had a vision, which turned into Trattoria Abruzzo. Just as her grandmother and mother had taught her, food is an art, and tastes better if made heartfelt.
All our pastas are made by hand daily and all our sauces are patiently slow cooked for hours each morning. Every dish is made by the order and often adjusted for our customers preference. All our ingredients are chosen based on freshness and quality.
Waitress was fantastic, they didn’t have a hi chair for my granddaughter which made it tough
Delicious authentic Italian cuisine. Smaller restaurant but with significant outdoor seating. Only issue was it seemed understaffed and a lot of running around and yelling at one another in Italian.
We ate outside which was nicely done. They were very busy so some things may have taken a bit longer but they acknowledged this and gave us very attentive service. We had pizza this time but we will definitely return for their homemade pastas.
Pizza was 20 bucks and was small maybe a 12” server didn't know size. Clearly not a $20 pie for pepperoni and sausage. They won't be known for the pizza.
The food was tasteless and charging for Ice topped it off. I would have much preferred to be charged more for a drink than to be charged for Ice.
First visit. Will not return. Service was terrible. They appeared to be short staffed. Waited over an hour for our food. It was good not great. Had pizza and ravioli. It was loud inside. They said no outside seating but tables stag open. Definitely will not eat there again. Too many other good choices.
The food was excellent! The service was borderline terrible! We had early reservations for an outside table. We were seated immediately. Drink order taken and received. About 10-15 minutes later, food order taken. So far, so good. Then the waiter disappeared! We waited over an hour for our soup and salad to get served. Then another half hour after we finished that for our dinner to arrive. I understand that it got busy, because while we were sitting there so long waiting for food, the dinner crowd arrived. The bill comes, I hand the waiter my credit card and he leaves to go swipe it. I received a text from my bank that the card was swiped. And we wait. And wait. He finally returns and I settle the bill. The manager comes to the table and tells us we've been sitting too long and he needs the table. I literally just settled the bill! He says I paid a half hour ago. I said no; the card was swiped a half hour ago, and the waiter was nowhere to be found. He basically wrote it off and said I still need the table.. I was not pleased that we were treated like that.
A fantastic meal for the 4 of us. “Leo” was our server and was attentive and charming. Heading back today to purchase a gift certificate for family. It was that good! Thanks
Service was great, food was good but extremely slow to be served. We think although
Abruzzo has been a favorite of ours for many years, we are not happy with such slow service. Improvement is in order.
Always a great experience
Great food and service.
Possibly the worst service I have had in Naples Florida
I had to track down the waiter to find out why our food was an hour late. Told me that kitchen missed the order
No manager or maitre’d ever came over to apologize
It is the first time in my life that I ever left a restaurant without tipping. I don’t feel bad about that either.
Never disappointed in any of my choices. The food is excellent and the wait
staff is friendly and very accommodating.
I have reviewed multiple times-the BEST FAMILY ITALIAN restaurant in Naples
been to Trattoria many times. This time we tried the pizza. It was very good. Being from NYC metro area it's hard to find pizza in SW Florida that is what we are accustomed to but this was very tasty. Margarita with fresh garlic and mushrooms. Will definitely order it again.
service was as good as always. we ate outside therefore the 4 rating on ambiance.
I highly recommend this restaurant if you have not eaten there yet.
Old friends getting together. Everything was perfect. Loved it.
The best Italian food in Naples Florida
one of the very best restaurants in Naples!!! My favorite "go to" restaurants ...
We had a 7 pm reservation and waited in line for a long time to get seated and it looked like there were some issues with seating people. Our table was outside next to a heater. If it was any closer my hair would have burnt off. Our waitress was very pleasant; however, she spent more time chatting with the table next to us. We sat there and waited along time before she noticed we were finished with our meal because she was chatting with friends/family members outside along the backside of the restaurant. The food was good but the service needed improvement and more attention needs to be given to patrons.
The food at Trattoria Abruzzo is fantastic. It is pretty authentic and well prepared. We have eaten here 3 times in the last couple of years and always enjoy the food. This visit, though, our waiter just did not make the mark. After receiving water and a basket of bread after sitting at the table a while - we had to flag down a waitress and ask if there was anyone assigned to work our table because we had not even seen a waiter. It was NOT overly crowded. When we finally did see a waiter, we ordered wine. He eventually brought the wine, walked away but never opened it! Again, we had to flag down another staff member and ask him to get our waiter to open our wine! At that time we realized we needed to order as soon as possible or we would be there all night. The table next to us - who sat down a good 15 - 20 minutes after us received their appetizers before us (served by the same waiter). From the time we arrived until the time we received our appetizers was an hour and 15 minutes. WAY TOO LONG! I am hoping this was an isolated incidence of poor service and not a chronic problem - because we like going there. Fingers crossed for our next visit.
We have been to Trattoria Abruzzo several times and never been disappointed. We only like to dine outside and sitting on the side of the restaurant with a hedge surrounding us, you don't feel as though you are in a parking lot. The food is delicious, ample without being overwhelming and the bread is wonderful. Our waitress was delightful. We will be back.
We dine here often and always enjoy ourselves.
The service was extremely slow. We had 6:30 reservations and didn’t get our food for another hour and a half. The food was cold when we got it. My fish was fishy and way over cooked! When it came time to check out, now at 9:30 pm, the computer broke down and they couldn’t process our credit cards. We had to write down the card info and give it to them. It was a disastrous night!
Food was excellent as always. Service was a bit slower than normal. Overcome by the good food.
First time visit did not disappoint! Great service from Kim and good food!
Authentic Italian dishes. Service was smooth and attentive. Only negative is that outdoor tables are next to a busy thoroughfare.
Food was ok, wine was good. Service was poor.
We celebrated Valentines Day and had a wonderful time. The food was incredible.
Always the best!
Fabulous as always. Excellent Italian food. Great food and service.
Said outside. Environment was not set up to protect from the weather. It was very windy. We had to hold everything on the table down.
Outstanding service and quality of food. I reccomend.
Excellent homemade pasta!
Outstanding in every way. True Italian cooking!
This is one of our favorites in Naples. Always great food and service.
The best family Italian themed restaurant in Naples
Delicious food and drinks and great service. My only complaint is the lighting outside is too bright.
The service and food were spectacular. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
