My husband and I and our two adult children had a wonderful evening just recently at Abbondante. For starters, the bartender crafted an extraordinary cocktail that I've never seen before with muddled blueberries. Tried to replicate at home with no success. Our appetizers and main...More

This is the place for high end food that is inventive and full of flavor. The setting is gorgeous and service is impeccable. You will need a reservation as this is a popular summer go-to.

Great decor and friendly service but food is just average at best. Pasta flavorless, monkey garlic bread was burnt and second batch was dry and tasteless. Eggplant was ok, chicken parm dry and clam pasta totally bland. Definitely not worth the visit

Had a quick drink and bite here tonight, and our experience was made by Erin Ingraham, our lovely bartender who regaled us with stories, and was very friendly and personable. Food was definitely delicious as well. Great overall experience.

Don't waste your time. I agree with the other reviews that this place has the feel of a chain, similar to that of the Olive Garden. Staff lack focus and management was found chatting in the back. Food came to the table cold, soggy and...More

Abbondante’s menu is true to its name, offering generous portions of thoughtful Italian preparations. Fresh, homemade pasta is prepared daily for family favorite dishes like spaghetti and meatballs and ravioli with ricotta filling and more inventive dishes like tagliatelle with hazelnut brown butter, rabbit confit, spinach and chevre, and papperedelle with agro dolce pork, sausage and pickled chilis. Pizzas cooked in the wood-burning oven include classics, pizza margherita with tomato, basil, mozzarella and extra virgin olive oil, as well as the more imaginative, such as pizza salsiccia with sausage, pickled chilis, provolone and roasted peppers. The menu is rounded out with comfort specialties like eggplant and chicken parmesan, meatball heroes and lasagna.
