Everything was excellent from seating to waiter/service. Food size was enormous and very tasty.
Great food, drinks & service! Took a friend there for his birthday and he can't wait to go back!
This place is amazing.. authentic tile wood fired pizza oven. Even though it is part of a restaurant group the staff was authentic and professional.
Great meal. I had a broken foot and they seated us in a good place and took very good care of us.
Birthday celebration, great food, very accommodating, friendly staff. Will bdefinitely go back!
Great meal. Highly recommend. Well prepared and delicious. Romaine, radicchio, fennel salad. So fresh!! Eggplant app was enough for a meal. Chicken was tender and hot. Whipped Yukon! All well seasoned!!
A very big disappointment! Lunchtime small Caesar salad with several strips of boneless chicken breast was $16 and nothing about it was special or authentic. Did not even come with anchovies as an option. Panzanella, that glorious BREAD and TOMATO salad, was a dish of chopped greens (!!!), a hand full of largish croutons, and a few cherry tomatoes (simply shocking) ($9).
Orecchiette with “sweet Italian sausage” and broccoli rabe ($18), among a few other ingredients, was almost inedible. The sausage was terrible—good news is there was not much of it.
We did not have dessert.
We will not be back. The food is just simply awful.
Always a pleasure to entertain at Avvio. The team does a wonderful job welcoming and delivering a fantastic experience!
Very well done presentation,service. Always consistent
Justin, our waiter was fun and informative. The meal was great. Tasty and filling for the adults while the simple (scratch) ingredients made it easy for the kids to enjoy too.
First time visiting, food and drinks were great and the service was on point. Will definitely be returning! Recommended for a nice date night.
The food and service, as always, was outstanding. This is one of our favorite restaurants.
Excellent food and service.. Issue with one meal, quicikly resolved by staff. Service and dining experience were exceptional
We have had great meals but the bar is not as attentive as sitting at a table. I had to send both my appetizer and entree back because due to health issues I requested no salt. The appetizer had a strange crumbled salty crouton chip or something very undesirable On a beautiful beef carpaccio..
My salad although beautiful was dressed and my salmon although beautiful was sea salted as well. I still like the food
there and will return . Perhaps the bar is much to busy for a special request.
The food and atmosphere are always good, and the waitstaff exceptionally nice. Pasta dishes are especially good. The Caesar salad doesn't have anchovies, however, so it's bland and not really a Caesar salad. Tiramissu v. good.
As always Avvio is our go to restaurant for lunch ! The staff is so friendly and the menu so reliable and delicious! Avvio is the best kept secret in Garden City, but lately we realize so many others have found our gem place to dine!!! But we will continue to dine here because it is the best place to gather with friends and have a delicious meal! You will not be disappointed!!
Very nice manger!
Consistently good food and service in a nice setting.
It was our first time here and it wasn’t bad but probably won’t dine again. Prices are too high and some traditional favorites are a bit too modernized for our taste. Staff is wonderful and restaurant is clean though!
The service was really great. My special request was accommodated without any question. Food was great and dessert was amazing!!!
Excellent meal, great waiter, overall wonderful night!
Great atmosphere, great food & great staff. Will be our "go to" place at least once a month going forward.
Our waiter was extremely unpleasant
Food is always very good, hot, and served timely. Convenient location and great place to eat and then do some shopping.
The restaurant staff gets to know their regulars very well and is always accommodating when it comes to ordering. It has been a favorite for many years.
Their grassfed burger keeps me coming back again and again! Delicious food and great service.
Always a great experience. Will be going back soon
I ordered the swordfish which was very moist but not very flavorful. I thought the portion size was very small considering the price paid.
I think next time I will order the pasta.
The drinks and apps were good.
Not as good as it used to be. No longer has my favorite caprese salad. The soup wasn't very good either.
Wonderful waitress very attentive and friendly. .
Pleasant, non intrusive service at a recent lunch. Excellent food and value.
My wife and I enjoyed a nice date night. Food was delicious and the portions were bountiful! I had the chicken Parmesan with a mash potato. My wife had a Panini with a very large salad as a side. Even the house red wine was very good. We will be back!
Food just OK. Used baby shrimp for shrimp bruschetta. Expected nice large local shrimp. Used focaccia bread with it way too soft! Lobster ravioli had a watery limocello sauce which was bland. Nicely made ravioli,cooked al dente. Won't be back.
Great, friendly service. Nice gluten free options. Original drink choices.
Salad and salmon was delicious my husbands veal cutlet and pasta were delicious as well the
Service as always was prompt and courteous.
Had to send my dinner back. Salad was brown.. not fresh...and skimpy. Poor presentation. Was given another... much better .
They were very attentive and welcoming. They even gave us a free dessert for a birthday which was lovely. Food was amazing!
Kale salad was great. Pizza not spectacular.
Quite busy and for the price expected better service.
But, OK. and certainly convenient.
Avvio was referred by a co-worker. Easily made my reservation and was seated very quickly! My date was my 6 year old daughter. She immediately liked the restaurant. Kids menu and the mela offered a free dessert! Also there was a candy bowl near the exit! They won her over. They kindly made the pizza 1/2 with basil leaves as someone wouldn't eat it. We also had cheese ravioli with pomodoro sauce. A little rich for my daughter but I quite enjoyed it. It's lent and I am meat free right now but I would like to return and try something else off their menu!
The staff all smile and say hello: a friendly bunch. The restaurant is loud - but only because everyone is having a good time dining and the kitchen is open concept and very busy. All of the food is exceptionally good. I consider myself a French fry expert and these are some of the best out there. My wife ordered the special of the night: flat sirloin with jumbo grilled shrimp and potatoes with grilled asparagus. It was all amazing and perfectly prepared. The kids had pasta and pizza . Everything, so good. Looking forward to our next visit.
