Service was FANTASTIC! The food was so-so. Nothing bad, just not amazing.
Really good food and good service
The food was well prepared, but not inspiring. The service was not up to par. The waiter would disappear for 20 min stretches.
It was busy with a number of large parties; the wait staff may have been short handed. However, we asked for salt and pepper, which never arrived, and waited 20 min to order after we got drinks. Not acceptable
Went for a date on Friday night. College kids made the place super loud. Food was good though, even if maybe a bit pricey
The date salad was incredible was very addictive.
They refused to seat us inside even though we had a reservation and there were plenty of open tables. Took about 30 minutes just to settle the bill after we were completely done.
Would not eat here again
1. Put some clothes on the female servers
2. Bread is made fresh but not good or light/airy
3. Overpriced for a meal I could have made at home
Had awful indigestion after eating here
Good food. Good environment. Good service.
WAY OVERPRICED. We went to a near by restaurant the day before. Had very similar food. The bill was TWICE THE PRICE. We will not be going back to Ava soon....
Alice was amazing recommend her 10/10
We had bloody Mary’s and breakfast pizza. The bloody Mary was really good. The breakfast pizza is enough to feed two maybe three people. It’s a pretty big portion.
Service okay. Had to request everything from bread to silverware and dessert
Food was okay. Took ricotto appetizer.
Pricy for quality.
Food came to table dripping with oil, because all my party of 4 could taste. Waitress was inattentive!
Excellent. The Wilshire pork duo was outstanding along with the "me & Julio" cock tail
Great place for girls brunch! Service & food were great.
Great food and great atmosphere. Pasta made fresh daily...delicious!
Every server was polite and very helpful.
Had dinner with my wife and kids for Father’s Day yesterday. Food was wonderful and our server, Destiny was tremendous. 10/10 would recommend it to others
We had a great time the food was delicious and everyone in our family of 8 was happy. We sat outside and enjoyed salads, pizza, steak and two our kids had pasta
Father’s day brunch
Nice ambience but noisy. Great food.
Loved it! Great vibes!
The service and the food were warm and well meaning. I loved it always do.
The service was terrible. We were allowed to reserve a table on Open table at 9.30 pm but kitchen closes at 9.30 so they rushed everything in few minutes. Waitress was rude and ruined the whole dinner experience. Horrible experience and very hard to call the food Italian. Only the pizza was good and similar to an Italian pizza from Napoli (similar not a real one). The rest of the food poor quality, fake Italian and overpriced.
First of all we had excellent service! Our server was very friendly check now it’s just the right amount! I have a gluten-free pasta which is homemade and it was delicious! I also have to say the hostess was very accommodating!
Did not enjoy the half chicken. Very dry, small, and under seasoned. Had to order extra sauce which took about 20 mins to get. It was mine and my sisters birthday and we were not very happy with Ava restaurant… they also did not have the Ruffino wine we wanted. We were given house wine for the same price!!!!!
I’ve been here multiple times but just now tried the pizza 10/10. Very good, all the food was great. I enjoy the experience every time I dine here. Great cocktails too.
The food was great but the service wasn’t so good. We waited about 10 minutes to place our drink orders, one of the food orders wasn’t made the way it was requested, and my second drink never arrived - thankfully I wasn’t charged for it
Food was absolutely exceptional as was the wine. Great atmosphere. Modern rustic design very comfortable environment. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
The restaurants atmosphere was amazing and full of life, food was great and fast.
You can never go wrong with the breakfast pizza, or their French toast. Lots of food and delicious. Make sure you order the egg on the pizza over medium, otherwise it comes out very runny, barely over easy.
Service is absolutely wonderful, hostesses and waitress were friendly and efficient. The food here is always just so so bleh but it’s a convenient location that frequently has availability for small groups so it has drawn me back. If the food was improved I’d be more inclined to dine here frequently!
Despite the food being good it was not worth the price and the service was not good. We left and said there’s no reason for us to return at this point, there are places with better food and better service for less
Horrendous service. Food was very good but plating was sloppy and the meal served without silverware. I had to get up and get silverware for the table because the server disappeared. I also pulled all the plates after the meal after they sat empty for 15 minutes and walked them to the dish room myself. Water and tea glasses sat empty for most of the meal. For 260.00 after tip I expect at least moderate level service. I won't be back.
Very loud inside … food was really good… gnocchi was feather light, rabbit ragu tasty .. husband’s linguine with clams really tasty .. he said one of the best he’d had … lots of fresh clams. Waitress was almost sullen so service indifferent .. I swear the only reason she cracked a smile at the end was to boost her tip. In spite of excellent food, will not be visiting again.
Apps and pasta were great. The pizza was a little soggy but had good flavor.
great freshly made pasta and margarita pizza rocks
