It is easy to fall in love with authentic Italian cooking in Birkenhead, Auckland. Abruzzo Ristorante Italian. Just like wine and fine Italian fare, we use several key ingredients that complement each other for an experience that is sure to please romantics, loving families and even groups of up to 40 looking to celebrate la dolce vita in style.
This was our second visit and the food was as good as our first visit. The whole family enjoyed their meals. Although we were full after the mains we tried out the Profiteroles. They were delicious!!
Its not just the food that makes this a favourite.
From the greeting by Blagica as if a long lost friend, to the casual yet friendly and efficient staff, its always a pleasant almost family like dining experience.
p.s. did I say that the food...was great?
This is one of our local gems, that we just LOVE! The food is always spectacular and the service outstanding! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for delicious, authentic Italian! You will go back 1000 times!
I have dined at Abruzzo's 3 times (so far) and it is now my restaurant of choice.
The staff are always amazing and the food is fantastic. The restaurant is small but that helps keep the very cozy and Italian atmosphere.
Booking is simple and...accurate on their website.
Prices are also very affordable, i.e, I took my son and my partner here for dinner, we all had a couple of drinks, a platter starter to share and a main meal each, the cost of this came to $130.More
Good food,service and atmosphere.
Dined here on New Years Eve and despite been full the service by staff was excellent as was the meal.
Great food arrived at the table piping hot plus delicious so would definitely recommend as a great local restaurant.
Booked restaurant for 7pm, waited 20mins, then told not enough staff. Booked thru here not direct to restaurant, obviously doesn't check all bookings made. Would of liked a phone call first before we travelled all that way so we could of booked another restaurant. Disappointed...JennyMore
