    Immediately walking in the door the moody lighting and ambience was perfect. Every single staff member who greeted and served us from the time we got there until we left had a great attitude and friendly demeanor. The food was obviously the highlight of the visit, absolutely incredible. Such great quality fish it melted in your mouth and the combination of flavors to excite your palate is unmatched. Could not recommend this place more and can’t wait to return.

    ABA, the Mediterranean oasis where even your taste buds take a vacation! The blackberry gin and tonic is like a flavor fiesta in a glass – it’s so good it should come with a warning label: ‘May cause addiction to Mediterranean bliss.’ As for the food, let’s just say ABA knows its way around a kitchen . My taste buds are considering permanent residency.

    Our server Elle, was fantastic. She provided several suggestions for our first visit. She was professional and engaging. The entire staff was very attentive. The food was awesome, we had Ceaser salad (one of best/unique ever), warm burrata, mushroom pasta, and chicken parm. All very good. The ambiance was 'perfect rat pack italian'.
