Our dinner was good. We had a baby with us and he was accommodated comfortably. All indoor seating has a great view of the open, south patio. Servers were veryhelpful and cheerful. We'll be back!!

I normally can depend on TA reviews but this place misses the mark in almost all areas. Hostess staff has no comprehension of the space, what is available, and the length of time to seat customers. Once at the table it appeared that the servers...More

Abrusci's Fire and Wine is a family-owned and operated business. The owners and general manager live locally and have been together in business for 16+ years. We recently moved from 32nd/Youngfield to 22nd/Youngfield and are proud to own our own place, designed with customer service in mind.

There is seating in our main dining room including at our pizza bar as well as indoor/outdoor seating in our bar and patio. The menu is similar to our Italian menu from our former location but now we have expanded the appetizers and included a bar/patio only menu to continue after the dining room closes.

Our brunch is on Saturdays and Sundays only when we open earlier, serving brunch from 9am through 4pm. We are also taking reservations for parties 5 and over, otherwise it is first come, first served with open seating in the bar.

Please be considerate of our neighbors when you park. The City of Lakewood encourages neighborhood parking versus large parking lots so we are doing our best to be good neighbors ourselves.
