Being one of the only restaurants in Wilsonville, this place is great. I used my Sharing Spree voucher and went on a date night. The food is delicious and the service was fantastic. Over the years, the menu/service has varied but the last couple of visits have been wonderful (hence the 4/5 stars). They offer outdoor seating which is perfect on a warm summer evening and a private room for larger gatherings indoors.
Not especially a ""family"" restaurant but, they have always made my children feel welcome.
We will continue to visit abella's and recommend it to our friends. I hope they do another Sharing Spree deal!!!

Thank you Mark, the owner, I will highly recomend this resturaunt to anyone within 100 miles of Wilsonville. I am sure they have the best food and very fair prices compared to anyone I can think of.
My wife and I use Abella for our monthly date night away from the kids. We love it there and have never had a bad meal ever.
Thanks again Mark, We love you!!!!

I was a long time customer at Abella's--it was my favorite resturant. Amazing ambiance, food, and service made it excellent--an all around package.
Now, I'd rather go to Olive Garden.
A staff change and a cut-back to using significantly poorer ingredients and means of preparing food have sunk this resturant. As a frequent customer I've had most of the dishes before and after about three months ago. Since about that time most of them have become mediocre, tasteless, and some even a bit gross. The 14-22$ dishes no longer are priced appropriately for their quality.
A funny, approachable, warm middle-aged serving staff has been replaced with a young, attractive, and social repulsive crew that leaves you feeling akward whenever they swing by.
If you have read a good review of Abella's, check the date. I'm willing to bet it hasn't been written in the past couple.
Take a pass on Abella's--you won't be happy, regardless of your order.

My boyfriend and I discovered abella on one of our many trips south on I-5 and have since incorporated it into every trip. They have a great selection of wines at a number of price points and if you are feeling overwhelmed the staff or owners are eager to suggest something. We have never had a bad meal, the only down side is that they are a small operation so if they get unexpectedly busy you may have to wait for a table. Even so, the food is well worth the wait and there is something to please everyone. We love this place!

I have eaten in this establishment now approximately 4 times, as I enjoy Italian Food. On every occasion I found the staff unresponsive to my wife and I. On the last occasion they ignored us for sometime, and the waitress was so rude I insisted on talking to the owner but they were unavailable. I encourage everyone who may like Italian to go to Portland until we get a new restaruant in town that can truly respect the customer. I strongly discourage you from even considering this restaurant. I am extremely offended how we were treated. As to the Food-the health code issues raised by the earlier post-would make me concern also.

We stopped in by chance and decided to check this place out. While it was a bit pricey we ordered our meals. I requested no cheese on my salad and it came with cheese on it and it had pine nut rocks in it and we had a chipping of one of our guests tooth from biting into it. I asked for my salad to have the cheese removed and was told that she would have to throw it way and couldn't I just eat it. 1st offense! SO I ordered simple spaghetti and it came covered in parmesan cheese that I requested to be removed. She was rudely abrupt and I was told she would have to throw another plate of food away and gave more rude attitude. When she returned I requested that she take the food away and that her rude attitude needed adjusting. The other entrees were also problematic as no one finished their meals. As she whisked the plates away, she informed us that all the meals were compted and told us to leave. When trying to find management there was no one to be found.
I say skip this place and go to a much more professionally run establishment. Hopefully with a professional staff attitude.

I was thinking about dining a Abella but then I checked thier health inspection. They were the second lowest heath score in Clackamas county. I don't care if they have the best food in town. If they don't care enough to protect the consumers by taking care of the sanitation fo the restaurant, I will never eat there. After I saw the inspection, I saw the restaurant featured on Dirt Dining on KPTV. The manager in the news segment blamed the new chef for the problems. Note to manager: If you have black walls behind your dish tank & dirty ceilings, it's not the new guy, it's your poor management. That stuff didn't grow overnight, it's a long term problem. She looked like a fool on the news. I will never eat there nor will anyone I know. The manager seemed to think that when Dirty Dining had a camera in her face it was time to promote her dirty restaurant saying things were made from scratch...what a fool.
