Named after the beautiful region of Italy, Abruzzo brings a little bit of its rustic Italian charm to Macclesfield. Situated right in the heart of the town centre on Mill Street, authentic Italian cuisine is dished up in this stylish yet traditional restaurant. Whether it is for a three-course feast with family or some antipasti and a bottle of fine Italian wine to share among friends, Abruzzo is a popular choice day and night.
With its location in Macclesfield’s town centre, Abruzzo is ideal for both lunch and dinner and you’ll find no shortage of choices on their extensive menu. Begin with some code de gamberini (king prawns with garlic, chilli, spring onions, cherry tomatoes, white wine and lemon juice) or rullata verde (spinach, ricotta and parmesan rolled in a homemade pastry and served with a spicy sauce).
From all of the classic pasta dishes – bolognese, carbonara, linguine and lasagne – to an array of pizzas like the capricciosa, loaded with tuna, mozzarella, anchovies, tomato, capers and chilli, as well as some other Italian favourites, Abruzzo’s menu is jam packed with options. We recommend trying some pollo Amalfi (chicken breast topped with salami and mozzarella drizzled in a creamy tomato sauce), accompanied with a quality wine from the handpicked selection. For some bellissimo Italian cuisine in Macclesfield, book a table at this restaurant on Mill Street in the town centre.
Lovely food, a great atmosphere & friendly staff. Couldn't fault a thing. I shall definitely be visiting again in the near future, and recommending to friends.
A really nice Italian, great food and really good service. Highly recommend the saltimbocca and the swordfish. Would recommend and would return. Give it a go!
Lovely food and friendly staff, can't wait to visit again! We opted for a main meal and dessert. The salmon pasta was amazing and I can definitely recommend the cheesecake :)
The staff and food are always great. The atmosphere relaxed and fun and nothing is too much trouble, my husband is really fussy and it's 1 of his favourites!
Friendly Italian restaurant with helpful & efficient staff and delicious food. My husband and I treated ourselves to the fillet steak which was a very generous size and was served with a scrumptious sauce. My daughter opted for a pizza which also looked very nice. Our waiter was very attentive and kindly offered my daughter the chance to sample a couple of the white wines before making her final decision on which to order. I thought this was a very nice gesture. We dined early as we were attending the theatre but even by 6.30pm the restaurant was filling up so I advise booking! Go on, you won't be disappointed ! Thanks to all at Abruzzo for a lovely meal.
Gone very downhill lately, the new chef and new menu is not nearly as good and the service was terrible. Foccacia was raw in the middle, gnocchi was overcooked, penne was bland, pizza dough was thick and undercooked and some of the toppings were raw, the only decent dish at our table of 6 was the linguine mare, and they'd not cut the langoustine so my friend had to break it open with his hands. The servers were terrible, ordering was painful, having to repeat dishes again and again, the server also offered fries without letting us know they would come covered in a thick layer of parmesan and black pepper. When the food came they passed it down the table instead of placing it in front of the person who ordered it. The drinks were slammed down on the table, almost spilling. The server with the black pepper and parmesan only served 2 people of 6 then walked off, we had to ask him to come back and finish. Abruzzo used to be a very nice restaurant, with an excellent menu and quality ingredients, now it's overpriced, poorly cooked, poor quality food with bad service, I was incredibly disappointed and embarrassed to have brought my friends there
We had a splendid evening at Abruzzo: there was a lovely, lively pre-Christmas atmosphere to greet us, a warm welcome from the staff, a broad menu (we were spoilt for choice!) excellent food and impeccable service ~ and all at a reasonable price. We couldn't fault it!
Always love a trip to Abruzzo! The food is lovely, the restaurant is beautifully decorated and the staff are always so friendly and welcoming. Always my first choice for somewhere to eat out in Macclesfield!
We really enjoyed our tea at Abruzzo and will defintely go again, in particular staff were friendly and very accommodating with regard to out children not always sitting still. Food was delicious, especially the bruschetta.
The restaurant was brilliant, I am gluten in tolerant and was looking at most of the non pasta and no pizza dishes as I thought I was unable to have any of those however when mentioned it they said they did gluten free beers and gluten free pasta so I was able to enjoy their pasta dishes and a lovely beer.
