              Inside patio is comfortable and we all preferred it to eating outside- no cars driving by but it’s open air so the best of both worlds. Food and service very good and fairly priced. Recommend. Never been disappointed at Avvio

              The new menu was great. Loved the charred broccoli appetizer. My wife had the Bada Bing pizza and had enough left over for another meal. It was just as good reheated! I had the lemon pasta. The combination of lemon and pistachio was subtle and mouthwatering at the same time. Too bad I had to have the gluten-free penne—I bet the poppyseed pasta would have added even another taste dimension. The Montalpulciano complemented both meals. We’ll continue to come as you never disappoint!

              Expected more from the Newport Restaurant Group. Food was ok not great. Had a nice Scottish waitress who was very nice. It felt like it was 90 degrees inside. Halfway through the meal the AC finally kicked on. It was ok, but as I said, I expected more from Newport.

              It took a long time for our waitress to greet us (10 minutes or more). Other tables came in after us, were greeted by their waiter, got drinks and bread and water before our waitress even greeted us. We repeated had to ask for bread and water. The food was great, especially the calamari.

Our waiter was Austin and he was top notch. He was super attentive and had a smile the whole time. I would definitely eat here again.

              Consistently good food using interesting ingredients, especially vegetables, which I love. We were there for lunch on Good Friday. It was beautiful outside and windows were open allowing great airflow in the dining room. A new menu for Summer will be launched soon as told to us by a manager who came to our table to check on us. Sounds worth pursuing on our next visit.

              We ate outside since it was lovely weather that day. My party and I split a fresh and delicious Caesar salad. We both ordered pizzas - absolutely delicious! The food here is always consistent.

              Food was delicious. Steak was done perfectly and the bolognese sauce was outstanding. Salad was very fresh. Our server was attentive. I like this restaurant because it has many gluten free options.
