Beautiful restaurant. Good food, generous portions. Works for anything from a romantic date to a casual dinner. I ordered a fresh mozz salad, and a chicken pasta dish. both were very good.

This is about our 5 th eating here this yr. It never disappoints. The food and service are excellent AND it`s a BYOB. It`s a small restaurant make sure you have a reservation.

Service is very nice, food is fresh and plentiful! Staff welcome you and make you feel like family! So many dishes to choose and all are excellently prepared. Killer pizza and desert cannoli calzone too! Move away, but I will go back every chance I get!

My wife, son and daughter in law went to have dinner Saturday night while we were in Jersey City for a family function. Abbondanza was recommended to us by a cousin. Tucked away in a brownstone building at 257 Grand Street, is an authentic Italian restaurant straight out of "Moonstruck"! Impeccable service, great portions. My wife and I shared a... More

We ordered some food in. Pasta, pizzas and a salad. De delivery took some time, but we were aware of that. De pizzas were okay. The salade caprese couldn't go wrong, because there was nothing addited like salt, pepper or olive oil. The pasta; fettuccine bolognese tasted rather flat. The big pizza was really big though! Enough for two people... More

4/17/16- We had dined here at-least 3 time in the last 2 months.The food and service were exceptional. I always have meat dishes ( steak , Chicken or Lamb) and my wife loves the fish. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the owner great. A word of caution CALL for a reservation.

This was a perfect experience - the owner greeted us on arrival - the service was perfect and I love the BYOB - next time I might try ordering the wine through them since they can get it delivered quickly. But Service was friendly and good food was good comfort food -- don't see how you can go wrong eating... More

Good service, good food. Pizza is delicious and good value. Salads are amazing. You can bring your own booze, that's an added value but the noise in the restaurant makes the dinner time unbearable. The restaurant has to do something about the acoustics. You can't have a decent conversation with your company unless you scream your head off. This is... More

Our group of friends and family for a meal after a funeral. Menu was phoned in ahead when making reservations. The food was served family style and was wonderful. Wanted to ask if they sold the salad dressing to go. And the Penne Vodka had the best sauce I've ever tasted! The wait staff and management were courteous and helpful.... More

Went here for a quick family dinner one weeknight in January and ordered a lentil soup and a couple of vegetarian dishes, each more tasteless than the other. THe soup was literally boiled and salted French lentils, with no spices or garnishes of any kind. The Pasta alla Marinara promised San Marzano tomatoes - but what came to us was... More
