About the restaurant
Abruzzo Italian Kitchen opened in December 2017. As is the Italian tradition, our focus is on the quality of our ingredients and simplicity of preparation. We cook by hand, from scratch, including all of our fresh pastas and wood fired pizzas. In addition to the Italian staples, we offer an extensive shared plates selection, grilled steaks, fresh seafood, and a small but decadent dessert list, all prepared in-house and served alongside an Italian-focused cocktail program and an Italian-centric wine list. Hospitality is the core of what we do: our staff is warm, genuine, knowledgeable, and attentive, and we pride ourselves on creating memorable experiences for every guest that walks through our doors.

Join us by the towering stone fireplace, next to the rustic bar or in a quiet corner for some really good food, a pint of local brew or a specialty drink. And, of course, a warm Whitefish welcome.

Food was fantastic, we will be back for the French Onion Soup! Maybe servers are just learning, but not very attentive, needed to track them down for drinks and refills. Other than that it was a lovely experience and we will be back. The dining room is beautiful and cozy with a fire place in the middle.
