    Second time coming here and again the food was excellent. The calamari appetizer was extremely tender. The mussel appetizer was OK- the broth was a bit bland. Our entrees were perfect - halibut, braised short rib, veal parm and veal piccata. All amazing. The service was great. I think they could make some updates to the decor - the ambiance is a bit boring and not that inviting. A rehab would make this place stand out.

    We dined on a busy Saturday night so understandably the wait staff was quite occupied. I must say that the food was excellent but the service leaved little to be desired. Our waiter was aloof and inattentive. I had to flag him down several times and then had to flag another staff passing through just to get water on our table. I loved their food so it’s a shame but I wouldn’t go back because of this experience

    We enjoyed our date night as usual at Avellino's. Our salads were awesome, main courses of Ravioli with Salmon was excellent and enough to take home and my Salmon over Parmesan Risotto was excellent as well. The only downside would be that the fresh vegetables had no flavor whatsoever. We will certainly be back.

    We have dined at Avellino’s many times and loved it! Used to be my favorite restaurant. But dining the past 2 times there were disappointing. Both times one of our friends suffered from hearing issues. Both times there was an event going on … on the other side of the divider in the main dining room. It got so noisy, we couldn’t even hear our conversation! So sad because it’s a great restaurant but when there is an event going on….the ambiance and relaxing meal is lost.

    The food wasn't as good as the last time we were at Avellino. The calamari was mostly batter. Our server was polite but obviously had too many tables and wasn't attentive.

    Mothers Day 2022: Prix Fixe menu - we weren’t expecting that. Salad and dessert were the highlights. The choice of apps resulted in us both picking the crab cakes - mostly breadcrumbs. Green salad and white balsamic vinaigrette were delicious as was the bread and compound butter. Choices for dinner included prime rib, pan roast salmon, roast chicken or green pea ravioli. We chose the prime rib and salmon. He enjoyed the rib (more medium than rare as requested) but the salmon was a brick (I think pre cooked and held). Our server kindly took back and returned with a fresh salmon filet which was nicely cooked but received after my guest ate his prime rib. Desserts were fabulous.

    We are always treated well at Avelinnos, our server was spectacular. I was not fond of the scallop sausage, it was cool not hot.... but all other parts of the meal blew this out of the water. Table of 3, you know your customer, you treat them as family, and you spoil us amazingly. My coconut Keylime cheesecake was amazing.

    Seated at large table right next to open kitchen which distracted from the atmosphere and conversation. I should have requested to be seated in another area that was less busy with activity. Appetizers arrived cold and had to ask server for plates. Calamari appetizer loaded with peppers that overwhelmed the dish, just a few soggy squid pieces. Spring pea ravioli with salmon was flavorless. Chicken parmigiana overcooked. The salmon was cooked medium rare - would like to have been asked my preference as I find the texture of salmon cooked this way unappealing. Desserts were good.
