First visit for the 4 of us. excellent service and food quality. Loved getting 4 mini cannolis as a light dessert to share
We love this restaurant. Have always had great food and service!!
Food was excellent... gluten free as well. Very polite amd professional staff.
The food and service were very good. The menu had a great selection but the parking........the parking was an issue. We were late for our reservation due to no parking in either lot the restaurant owned. I would highly recommend the restaurant even with the parking issue
Salads huge & delicious. Way too long between salad & entree which was good but not special. Prices reasonable. A bit noisy.
Both service and food were exceptional. Would return again to try other dinner options. Relaxing dinner, with great menu and wine selection.
Excellent Italian food including dessert. Great atmosphere and service.
Romantic birthday dinner with my husband.
Have dined here many times - not the best this trip - service was a little slow and the noise level was very loud. Also very cold near the windows. As usual, desserts were amazing.
No veal parm, only chicken, eggplant parm was a bit "oily" and I am not a fan of leaving the skin on!
It’s pricey but food and ambiance is amazing.
Great valentines dinner! Will be back again..
Always great food and service at Avellino and this time was no exception.
The two regular servers in Avellino’s main dining room may be the best we’ve ever experienced. No exception on this bustling Valentine’s Day evening! Our waitress gracefully handled our table and one-half of a very busy house. We always go for the braised meats, this time pork shank and short ribs. Great as always.
Really great food and service here and an excellent wine list.
Always consistent you know what you are going to get with every selectionThe specials are always wonderful and exactly as explained
Our waitress was amazing. She was able to give us great suggestions for food and drinks. She was also very professional and friendly
Very good service. Quality ingredients, preparation and presentation. One of Sturbridge's gems for foodies.
Great meal , casual atmosphere and attentive staff. Rico and the kitchen put an excellent dish of food out. It is the local go to place for a great meal.
One of our favorite restaurants, we travel 90 minutes so you know its worth the drive. Beautiful inside with super service, food, and wine every time we dine here. Thanks Christine for a great night. See you again soon.
One of the best meals ever! Waitress was great and it was a wonderful experience. Can’t wait to Go back.
We have spent many New Year’s Eve at the Whistling Swan! We ask for Danny always. It’s like visiting an old friend! Just a special night with our friends. Happy New Year to all there!
Always a great dinner, very consistent homemade fresh appetizers, main course and deserts.
We go to Avolinos at least 2 times a month and we have never been disappointed. Our server Kristy has always made us welcome and she knows what we like for a drink to start off our meal. The food is outstanding, the atmosphere is great (to too big and loud). We will keep coming.
Truly can be called “fine dining”. Service (Dan) was impeccable. The Veal Chop Milanese was perhaps the best I have ever had. We weren’t rushed and the entire meal was nicely timed. Just an excellent dining experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The hostess, waiter, and wait staff were pleasant, friendly, and professional. Nicely decorated rooms for the holiday season. The food was delicious. Antipasto salad plate had plenty for 4 to share. Fresh yummy bread. Good drinks. Prompt service. Great meals. Highly recommend the butternut squash risotto.
Arrived somewhat early for our reservation, but were seated quickly - we had dined here before a few times so were not surprised by the polite service. Waitress brought menus and wine list, filled our needs quickly and accurately! The only glitch was in the meal service itself, five dinners came out with celerity, but the sixth was delayed. No one should have been served until all meals were up together. Food was great, we shall go again for sure!!!
This was our second time at Avellino‘s. The food is outstanding and the service is impeccable. Definitely recommend and will return!
We are locals to the area and we always try to support our local eateries. We had a great meal for our special occasion last year and decided this would be the place again. The food is amazing, very authentic Italian cuisine and the desserts are to die for. Try the dessert for two, you can't go wrong. The wait staff are great and the ambience is quaint and unique.
Avellino was lovely, service was very good, but the overall quality of the food just left something to be desired. The descriptions of the dishes sounded wonderful, but the actual dishes were underwhelming--underseasoned, bland and not even pepper or grated cheese offered to help things along. Italian bread in basket not of very good quality. Just a disappointment overall.
Great food to celebrate our 15th Anniversary. Thanks for helping to make our special night so good!
Great atmosphere and service. The food quality and taste of the tomato sauce, however, was very poor.
The food was awesome. I had the calamari appetizer which had too many hot peppers for my taste, but others may think it's perfect. The noise level was a bit to much for me only because one table was talking too LOUD. Otherwise I think we would have a moderate level. I want to go back.
poor bartending..(margarita in large water glass, no muddling of old-fashioned), no tablecloth, limited menu, 1 special on a saturday nite, average fare, not the best lighting..
Excellent food and service, reasonably priced. The lobster ravioli was freshly made and came in a lovely sauce. The chicken breast was moist and flavorful. Seafood risato contained large mussels from R.I. that were absolutely delicious. Our server was proficient and unobtrusive. Authentic northern Italian without having to deal with the traffic and parking of Boston!
Always a great meal and great value. SERVICE STAFF IS EXCEPTIONAL!
Everything is always outstanding. I need to thank Debbie for always giving us our favorite table.
The service is the best, thanks to Christine and Daniel. If Joseph is working the bar you will get the best martini ever. The food is perfect all the time. If we lived closer we would be coming back a lot more often. Just one thing, I wish you would PLEASE go back to the old Frank/Dean music, it is perfect dinner music and completes the night.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. It never fails to deliver really good food and outstanding service. It is a bit of a drive for us but we plan errands to do in the area and then make this our "dinner out". The menu is not huge, but what is served is done well. In the 3 years we have been going here it has never been a disappointment.
Very good. Lamb didn't taste too much like lamb. Bolonese was ccellent
Celebrated our tenth anniversary with dinner at Avellino. Our server, Gina, was very good, allowing us to take our time as we were in no rush. We enjoyed our drinks as well as our food, although our entrees were a little under seasoned. For dessert we chose the sampler plate, which we couldn't finish. Richness overload, but in a good way. This was our first time dining at Avellino and we're looking forward to returning in the future.
