Every Moment Matters.

Abbraccio Cucina Italiana Logo


At Abbraccio, we recognize that dining is more than the sum of the food and beverages we serve. It’s the moments and memories shared that express our heartfelt hospitality and leave a lasting impression with our guests. Each interaction is designed to enable us to create small surprises that turn ordinary into extraordinary!



Meaning ‘hug’ in Italian, Abbraccio Cucina Italiana was inspired by Carrabba’s Italian Grill® and is the second international concept launched by Bloomin’ Brands International. The first Abbraccio location opened in 2015 in Brazil. Our menu blends traditional Carrabba's Italian dishes with additional pasta and pizza offerings to account for local tastes and customs.

Food is, and always has been, an important part of our lives. Our love of cooking came naturally as we were raised in the kitchens of our mothers and grandmothers. It was with these special family recipes, a commitment to fresh ingredients, and true Italian hospitality that we opened our first restaurant in 1986. To this day, we still prepare each dish by hand and take pride in sourcing the finest ingredients from around the world.
