Abbiocco is all about classic, Italian flavours and ingredients. The alfresco seating area, surrounded by trees and greenery, provides the perfect backdrop to enjoy a delicious bowl of homemade pasta and a good glass of wine. The menu usually comprises an Antipasti Platter (which allows you to taste a variety of authentic Italian items) and a selection of pasta dishes all made from scratch each day.
