As Galileo’s research proved, the ebb and flow of any Italian feast is directly related to the revolution of spaghetti strands around the tines of a fork. Delve deeper into these delicious findings with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of classic Italian fare at Abruzzo Restaurant in Wilbraham.
Abruzzo Restaurant satisfies cravings for Italian cuisine with a collection of classic dishes in a relaxed environment. Clams Casino, crisply dressed in bacon and breadcrumbs ($6.95), leads the menu's appetizer brigade, gaining footholds in hunger just long enough to lead dining denizens to pizza groves and pasta-grazing grounds. House specialties skew toward chicken and veal dishes, with the lightly egg-battered chicken francaise enjoying a bath of white wine, lemon juice, and butter sauce ($13.45), while the tomato- and mozzarella-topped veal and eggplant parmigiana establishes a middle ground to quiet ordering dilemmas ($16.95). Meal medleys such as honey-bourbon-glazed chicken and baked stuffed shrimp, accompanied by pasta or potato, seamlessly marry land and sea, prompting some diners to consider growing fins to live an underwater lifestyle ($16.95).
Abruzzo Restaurant’s outdoor porch offers a scenic gathering spot. Inside, stained-glass lamps illuminate red-padded booths and maroon-clad tables with a soft glow, creating an air of casual intimacy, like wearing jeans to bed or whispering about the weather.
