If Abrusci's is charging a 20% "tip" then it is a forced gratuity considered to be a fee by the IRS and must be reported as gross income for the restaurant. If the management sloughs this off as a tip to its employees then they are in violation of the law , Rev. Ruling 2012-18 which went into effect on... More

I've been here several times, for both dinner and lunch and have also ordered for take out meals. The food is tasty, presented very well, with wonderful authentic flavors. The dining room is very nice, also plenty of room for a table of 2 or 4, as well as room to accommodate a large party. The largest group I've taken... More

The desk clerk at our hotel recommended Abrusci's and we were so happy with our meal. My husband and I both had the rigatoni and it was delicious. Our service was prompt and our server was very friendly and helpful.

It is sad enough when one is disappointed in the food and service at a restaurant, but when the restaurant charges a mandatory 20% service fee for awful service, one does not return. Our experience in January 2017: -The service was awful....We waited 5 minutes to be greeted by anyone (absentee hostess who was in the bar hanging out ;... More

We are always on the lookout for good Italian food! We tried a variety of dishes and all were satisfyingly delicious. The Steves special is a favorite as it has just enough spice. The restaurant is on the intimate side in size but they have a banquet facility that handles large parties. They have a wonderful knowledgeable staff too to... More

Service was terrible waited forever for service, chicken parmigiana was cremated, wine poor on second glass was half of the first, the wedge salad was a hunk of lettuce with not enough dressing to eat it, changed .75 for ranch dressing. Then added 20% tip to the bill. Never again

I've given Abrucis many chances over the years to improve their customer service, but my take out orders are never ready. After waiting 25 min. for my last order to be filled, I was offered free salad and bread. Really? That cost them $5 while my 12 guests waited at my house. I'm done.

I went to Abrusci's based on their Trip Advisor's reviews and a look on their website. They advertised a free draft beer with lunch on Fridays. As it was Friday I asked for the free draft when I ordered. The server said they were no longer doing that even though it was on their website. He did not offer to... More

Well, if you're looking for a sweet little "Mom and Pop" Italian restaurant---look no further! Although it's quite an excursion for me to drive to Wheatridge for lunch, my sister led us on the long and winding road to this nice place. She's been there before, but it was MY first experience as a dining customer. We walked in and... More

BEWARE! They add a "hospitality" charge, tip to your bill. They got me because I left a cash tip and the "server" didn't tell me. Never again. The food isn't very good. Skip this place.
