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!! Highly recommended!

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? Buon appetito!More

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
