Fresh pasta is the feature here. Some of the best I've had, cooked perfectly The wood fired pizza comes a close second. Try the warm Ricotta appetizer - yum! It's loud inside, so if you don't want the noise ask for a seat on the large outdoor terrace.
Bolognese was super bland. Pizza was good. Parmigiana bland breading mushy/soft. Expected more flavor for price points.
Ordered eggs over easy for my bowl and came back well done. Asked them to redo and they made again. One egg was over easy the other well done again. When I brought it server attention she tried to argue with me that it was not well done. How hard is it to cook an egg and can why argue about it. The pancake was burnt in the bottom. They brought out more eggs but was so over it by then. It’s so hit and miss with Ava. Can get a great meal at Ava one day and the worst another day. I want consistently good food. Manager tried to say they have had issues and servers are really over worked and tired. Hmmmmm.... really???
Excellent food and outstanding service.
We had ate family style - grilled fish of the day, bone one fine eye, souls vide veal chop - all were terrific
Had a great night the Bucatini is fabulous and Pizza is a great appetizer
First time visit. Coworkers flew into town and this was our choice. Nice atmosphere and delightful wait staff. Bar was diverse and well stocked with Bourbons and other spirits on all sides of the spectrum price wise. Food was fantastic and we were very happy with our choice.
Our server was so nice! We had a large party and she was so helpful and handled it with such efficiency! For some reason we don’t have Ava in our rotation but I am so impressed!
Chef JL prepared a special meal for us and everything about the evening was wonderful.
Food is delicious and service is awesome. Is it a little pricey for being a casual restaurant. We ordered pizza and pasta which is all made in house.
Ava provided the perfect location for my party of 12! I'd tried getting reservations at other restaurants who wouldn't work with my party size for a brunch event I was planning, I'm happy those restaurants didn't work out because Ava turned out to be exactly what I was hoping for!!! I'd suggest this place to anyone looking for great food, amazing service, and a cool space to enjoy.
Excellent meal! Our server, Casey, gave great wine & food recommendations. We’ll definitely return.
Always excellent food and service ... hip ... authentic ... energetic ... good vibes ...
Cool place. Great food and service
Celebrated daughter’s 17th birthday with a few of her friends. Food was great and they brought out a little special dessert for us to share.
We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. The food was outstanding and, Sophie, our waitress could not have been more attentive. Her suggestions made the night more memorable.
Excellent varied menu. Fair prices. Waiter very attentive and knowledgeable, but often MIA.
AC not working!!!!
Our food was amazing and our server (service)was just as good. Definitely will come back.
Wonderful first time visit for a. birthday lunch! I love the menu options and look forward to returning for dinner soon!
Veronica is an outstanding server, Very attentive and a charming character. They have some of the best pizza around.
Great food, super staff, and always a pleasure to go there with friends. Easy free parking. Need reservations on weekends, Bar area gets very crowded.
Nice Italian restaurant with great food and interesting cocktails.
Took a little longer than needed for a server to come to our table to at least take a drink order... we had to go up to hostess desk to finally get a server. Also... asked for a mild.. not too spicy Bloody Mary and rcvd it with olives with spicy red peppers inside. Ordered the smoked salmon Benedict and poached eggs were hard inside instead of being creamy yoke. It was my first time at Ava... I plan on giving it another try at some point... may have just been a off day:)
Nice menu good good with tasteful presentation.
Great food and service!
Appetizers were good, pasta a bit over cooked
Restaurant temperature was extremely uncomfortable
Outstanding from the start! Celebrated son’s birthday and everything was delicious!!! 3 appetizers: Scallops, mussels, and shrimp scampi.
Beautiful tomato and mozzarella salad and wonderful entrees! I loved the swordfish special and others thoroughly enjoyed the salmon entree and chicken parmesan. Mouthwatering chocolate treat to finish off our meal. Service was excellent as well and Hats off to chef J.L. Lister. It was a very enjoyable evening!
Great concept needs help with execution. Some very good elements offset by some bad choices. Very good, highly promising house-made pasta laden with porcini's plus a 63 degree egg (excellent concept), but way over-sauced. Octopus fail: not tender plus ruined by drenching in balsamico = too California, not enough Italy. Disappointing wine list must have been designed by a distributor. Noisy room. Worth another try, but order very carefully.
Went for brunch. Food was great and the servers were friendly. We had the breakfast pizza which was outstanding,, the sausage and peppers omelet which was cooked just right and one of the bowl concoctions which was very good. The place was lively and fun, will definitely go again.
Always a nice time
Homemade pasta was great!! Service was good, a little slow at the end as it was getting busier. A little pricey for what it is but a fun atmosphere.
Outstanding food and service. I recommend!
We made a last minute reservation for brunch for a friends birthday and Ava and staff were more than accommodating for our party of 10. They had the table ready early so we had time to decorate. I had the breakfast pizza and it was SOOOOO amazing. We had bottomless mimosas for only $15 too! I'm glad I went with Ava for brunch. It's a great spot with great food and a great ambiance. I definitely recommend for brunch!
Food was not as good as expected. Relatively small portion of pasta. Ambiance and service were good.
Came in on a Friday night for a date, Meghan was our server. She was delightful and offered us the nightly specials. I went with the pasta special and it delicious, Robert ordered the Orange lamb shank. It was tender and fell off the bone. We both enjoyed a cocktail and glass of wine. We can’t wait to come back for another meal.
Probably the best meatballs I have ever had. The scallop appetizer was to die for. The service was amazing too. I will definitely be back.
Ava's is a neighborhood dining place. The food is always good and consistent. The craft cocktails are great and the variety of wines good. They have great pizza's - always a favorite! We are never disappointment. Eating in the bar or in the dining room is perfect for a last minute date or just a place to hang out with friends.
service was awesome, perfect attentiveness and professionally accommodating. food as always fabulous. had the Chicken Parmesan with Bucatini fresh made noodles which was perfect and the salad was amazingly fresh.
Very consistent service and food quality.
Tried the Ribeye this time and was not disappointed. Flavorful, juicy cut of meat. Awesome, friendly staff.
Always satisfied and always come back.
The food was awesome, the server had very little patience with letting you speak. Besides that it was great
