My in-laws took us here for dinner on a Saturday. The place was very busy but did not wait long. The menu was good and what you'd expect from an Italian restaurant but the food wasn't " good Italian" food. The sauce, to me is bitter. I feel like Italian should be GREAT Italian or you may as well just... More

The story begins with a very nice atmosphere. Although a busy Tuesday night, our party of 5 was seated promptly and in an area where it was conducive for our business dinner. Pleased again, having been here before a few times. We were given our menus and the waiter brought over the waters. We were all asked if we would... More

We were in town visiting my son, his wife & their daughter - It was a special occasion since we didn't get to see them last year. The Hostess who seated us seemed a bit stuffy but our table waitress was really nice, thoughtful, responsive & efficient. We ordered Beefeater Gin Martinis straight up with olives, two kinds of shrimp... More

There were 5 of us at Aberini's for a business dinner. Three of us had the rack of lamb, which was excellent. We also has the Ehlere cabernet which was awesome (expensive, but awesome). There are a lot of good choices on the menu, many great Italian items. This was my 2nd visit and I will definitely go back again.

I was not overly impressed with the place. I thought the prices were high. the service was ok. and the food was good. But not great. There are better places in the area.

My Fiancé and I come here every once in a while and look forward to coming. This past time, was a very poor experience. The calamari came out and looked like it was half eaten. For $10 give me the appropriate amount of calamari. The server said it was weight proportioned, but come on...that's ridiculous. Our entree was good, and... More

I was speaking for a group of people and arrived early. The two sweetheart servers could not have done more for me. Fresh drinks fro the bar, got my order early, recommended the almond cream cake over the cannoli and tiramisu (only because I told them I was raised in Brooklyn near Italian bakeries and thought I might want to...

My wife and In-laws recently dined here for my mother-in-laws birthday. The food was excellent, portions were huge and served hot. Service was a little bit lacking and the mixed drinks were expensive ($8.50+) for Youngstown but the quality of the food overshaddowed those two minor things.

Good food, nice atmosphere, and reasonable prices for an upscale venue. We did not partake, but they have an extensive wine selection too.

Thank Lextown
