I have been to Abruzzo so many times over the last few years and I am never disappointed. The food is the most delicious and staff always willing to accommodate, whether small or large parties. I have been to a couple of other Italian Restaurants aswell, but Abruzzo exceeds over all of them. Keep up the great food and service... More

This was the perfect venue for a really excellent evening with our dear cousin recently. The ambience was really good inside the restaurant, and the waiters really tried to personalise service despite the busy crush of customers who had flocked there that day. i had recommended the cannelloni and my wife and cousin found it excellent. I tried one of... More

I've eaten here several times and generally had a good night, so I recommended the restaurant to my family to celebrate my sister and brother and laws wedding (and my auntys birthday), and we booked a couple of weeks ahead of time. I hate to say but I am extremely disappointed in the service (or lack of) for our group... More

I went here for a takeaway pizza and was pleased with what we got. Not the best pizza in town but it was very good. Their service was also very good and the value quite reasonable

Had a delicious dinner here once again. The food is always great and the service is fantastic. The staff are so friendly and even when rushed off their feet make time to chat to you. Always busy and a great ambience.

Abruzzo is a rustic Italian style restaurant set back from Whangaparaoa Road in Stanmore Bay. If youre looking for glamour and glitz this is probably not the spot for you but Ive always had tasty fare from their kitchen and have dined there several times. I do prefer it in Summer, you can BYO and sit outside with a bunch... More

After a lovely afternoon 10 pin bowling, the six of went to Abruzzo for a meal. The quality of the meal could not be faulted and the service from the lovely waitress was brilliant. My wife and I had pizzas which far exceeded our expectations and our friends had various dishes which they also considered exceptional. Desserts were also of... More

We were very, very disappointed by our experience at this Restaurant. The service was terrible & the food way below average. We were not asked once if we were enjoying our meal or need another drink or dessert, coffee! We had a night out without the kids and had planned on relaxing & having few vinos & special coffee/dessert. When... More
