Server was not attentive.
Ordered appetizer and it never arrived. Although comped by the manager and given to us to take home, it threw off the entire meal. Also, server didn’t apologize.
Asked for water, server filled one out of 3 glasses.
Asked about GF options, server said she would be a GF basket for our table. She never brought it.
While speaking to other patrons passing by our table, our server came over and started to bus our dishes while in conversation. Very rude. And then dropped the check with out a standard bill folder.
Server tried to take the cash on the table with the check before I finalized the amount of cash.
Very unhappy. And that’s not like me.
Having lunch at Aavio is a monthly ritual with my bestie. Everything is spot on perfect each and every time.
nice place for dinner! always good service and food.
Austin was our waiter. His service was outstanding! We had a great lunch.
I would try to arrange outside table near the restaurant wall so that there is no space for the sun to peak through. One person in our party had a difficult time dodging the sun.
Lunch with friend from AZ
Everything about AVVIO is great! The food is really tasty, I had chicken piccata. It was very tasty and cooked perfectly. Served with roasted potatoes and green beans. Our server, Jordan, was really great! Personable and friendly. She was attentive, but left us alone enough too, if you know what I mean.
Prices are higher this visit, but it is understandable, since they were shut down for the pandemic. We likely have to get used to that.
We enjoyed our lunch and we had the most pleasant waitress. She also reminded me about the points on the Newport dining card.
Our waitress was definitely an ASSET to your restaurant. Food and service —Perfect!
My sister and I wanted to find a place to meet halfway for lunch and we chose Avvio. I have been there before but she hadn’t and she really enjoyed it. We sat in the side patio outside which was lovely, the service was great and the food was very good also. Your antipasto platter is out of this world!
30th wedding anniversary
I met a former co-worker for lunch and we needed to catch up. We weren’t rushed and our waiter ( a wonderful young man) was outstanding. I wish I paid more attention to his name!
Newly retired and have met several people there for lunch over the last several months.
I recommend Avvio’s
Avvio is my go to restaurant. Always good; never disappointed.
Restaurant was empty and we were seated next to the stocking area. Constant traffic by our table?
Good gluten free options and great to have bread and dipping oil
As someone with Celiac disease, I appreciate that some of their menu items can be made gluten free. Items on the menu are noted as "gf" and our server was able to answer my questions before ordering. I had the chicken piccata and it was absolutely delicious. My husband had a pasta dish that was so generous he will have a couple of lunches with the leftovers. We went on a Monday night, so the restaurant was not crowded. Atmosphere was pleasant and we enjoyed our meals.
Great experience at Avvio!
Our waiter was fantastic! I forgot his name!
WONDERFUL food, Great service! Reasonably affordable and no troubles parking!!!
STILL our favorite place for dining out!
You can tell it was understaffed. The same waiter for everything....even water. no fault of theirs but I am going to wait until these places are fully staffed before going again. Doesn't make sense to spend an obsurd amount of money with no perks like before.
Good experience food was good service was excellent the restaurant was a little loud although it was quite busy
It was a very special night as we were celebrating my son's 26th birthday and my husband's 56th birthday. Our server was gracious, attentive and overall... awesome. Thank you. Will definitely return again and again!!
Great as always. My first time having the Veal Parm and it was fantastic! I wish they would bring back the dessert pizza.
The food and service was wonderful as always. Our waiter Joe was fantastic!!
We are visiting from out of state and have eaten here on 3 occasions. The food was delicious and filling. Being from CA we are accustomed to high quality restaurants and this was one. Will go again before we leave if we can.
Staff was very good and food was outstanding. Outside dinning was relatively quiet.
Saw Avvio on some Instagram posts. Looked great and was great. Excellent food and service. Upscale ambiance, good wine list and creative entrees.
All around 5 stars.
Meal was delicious! Server recommended adding a meatball to my eggplant and very happy with that combination!!
Great lunch on the indoor patio. Meal was great and service was friendly and professional.
We had Jordan as our server and did and awesome job.
The food was excellent and our courses were spread out in a timely manner. The wait staff was polite and very professional.
Excellent as always, from start to finish ! Our server John was very helpful and did a great job! We’ll be back soon!! Thank you!
The server, Jennifer, was excellent. So was the food!
Great experience, great food. Everything went great. Highly recommend, and will definitely be going back.
Avvio was excellent - the service was great - went on a beautiful night was nice to be seated outside. Look forward to visiting again soon.
Small table and the food took a long time to come out of the kitchen since it was not that busy The dinners were both very tasty and reasonably priced. I’m not sure why we had such a small table in the middle of other people when there were so many available seats. I’m hoping it is not because we booked it through open table and not calling the restaurant directly
Food very good service was excellent but missing the pasta fagioli soup.
Not a place for me and my fiancé.
I ordered the duck special and much to my surprised it was tasteless and not good. Was very surprised as I have always been impressed dining at Avvio.
I eat here frequently either for lunch or dinner. I always have great service and a delicious meal. So attentive to my food allergy.
