everything was great as usual
Great! Loved it.
It was comfortable, near open door. It was a birthday celebration but they do not offer anything complimentary (desert) with a birthday wish, which is disappointing as so many other upscale restaurants do.
We enjoyed our visit to Avvio very much. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and even suggested some entrees that were exceptional. She was very professional.
Fantastic food, nice menu, great service, great environment.
Raul runs a top notch experience at AVVIO! Nathan and David behind the bar, always create a welcoming and positive experience! You won’t be disappointed at AVVIO.
Great overall.... The short rib was excellent cut and prepared well just wish it had a little zing -some added taste-? a bourbon / barbecue glaze of some sort -even some citrus some glaze or topping with a little zing--lave that to chef.. The scallops were outrageously
good.. The boulonese was great too.. Overall a great meal and experience. Had leftovers too!
It’s always consistent
The food was very good. Our server, Leslie, was exceptional.
Avvio is a lovely establishment. It certainly has a European, eclectic ambience, which is very welcome here in Rhode Island. I believe that their menu is quite diverse, appealing to a multiplicity of culinary propensities.
The only reservation that was available was 8:15. I feel like we should have been warned that the restaurant decided to close at 9:00. We were sitting in the inclosed outdoor part of the restaurant and they shut the heat off promptly at 9:00. Our waitress still hadn’t brought our bill over so we just sat there freezing wondering what was going on. No one informed us that they decided to close at 9pm until the heat was already off. Also, none of us thought food was that good for the price. Chicken parm had a wet, mushy breading on it. Very strange.
Girls night at the bar— both bartenders were attentive and the food and drinks were great!
Love the bar. Felt very safe with the plexiglass dividers. Started with beef carpaccio to start which was delicious. Had the shrimp scampi which was amazing. Enough food in one serving for at least 3 meals. Friend had the bolognese which was also amazing and another very large portion. Highly recommend.
Always enjoy Newport restaurant groups different restaurants. First time here and we really enjoyed ourselves
Avvio is always a great choice! Great for lunch or dinner, nice variety on the menu, great pizza. Excellent for date night, family dinner or a dinner with friends! The fig pizza is a must!
Avicii has a great outdoor patio. Dinner is available all day, service superb. We go often
Excellent!! Always one of my favorites. Never disappoints.
The RI Mushroom Bruschetta was excellent. We had the Shrimp Risotto, Chicken Parmesean, and Butternut Squash Ravioli. All were very flavorful! Excellent service as usual!
Everything was very good - food - service - adherence to DOH/COVID regulations.
Our recent experience at Avvio was, as always, great. First, they were easily and readily able to accommodate my request for a change in dining time, moving it up an hour. Our request for seating outside of the main dining room was also met. Our server and staff were professional, welcoming and not at all obtrusive. Drinks are marked by good pours and delicious taste. Meals are well-prepared, and delicious. Dietary requests are readily made. Socially distanced seating and the wearing of masks by staff made our experience safe and satisfying. Highly recommended.
Service was great! All of the food was delicious! Love the wood burning grill!
Great meal and attentive service.
My husband and I enjoy a nice meal at Avivo - we both chose the scallop dinner and we were both please with it.
We had a nice visit at Avvio. The food and the service was very good.
Very good menu selections, food preparation and service. Always a very good visit to Avvio.
Great place all around
This was our first "outing" since the pandemic and felt very comfortable. The seating was spaced appropriately, staff and guests all wore masks and reservation system allowed for space at the door for coming and going. We both had shrimp dishes that were (as always) top notch. We recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a good meal, knowledgeable staff, pleasant surroundings and good wine list. Mangia Avvio!
Love love love the fig pizza
Food was both delicious and also a good portion. Highly recommend starting with one of their pizzas.
Dave and Nate at the bar are always friendly and attentive. They always make us feel welcome.
First time here and it was great. Fantastic lunch, definitely go again.
Overall an excellent experience as well COVID safe
We ate on the side terrace, not much ambiance there but at least we weren’t too close to other people.
