The food was excellent. The ambiance chaotic and we did not feel safe. Waiting one hour to get our food was
Friendly and consistently great food!
I have been a huge fan of Avvios since I moved to the area a year ago. My husband and I have always had consistently good service and delicious food. Today's lunch was such a disappointment. It took 15 minutes for our wait person to even let us know that we had to use the icon on the table, while we watched her serve another table paper menus and water almost immediately. We then had to wait to place our order for drinks (iced tea and water with lemon) another long length of time. We had to ask for bread, and another long wait. I told my friend, who I was treating to lunch for her birthday, that it wan't usual to wait so long but the food was worth it. It wasn't. My friend ordered the Beef Mushroom sandwich. It was disappointing, a little too stringy, and lacking in seasoning, she said. My Chicken Piccata was an embarrassment to any chef. A small chicken breast SWIMMING in a bland sauce with 12 capers on a huge plate. The breast was tough and highly unflavorful. I could only eat half. I requested my side to be the Pasta with Tomato-Basil sauce. The pasta, which I usually LOVE, was glutenous and stuck together in a great mass, like it had been sitting a long time. I could only eat around the outside of the pile. Obviously the chef didn't like that I requested a different side from the offering; that was very clear. The only time we had timely service was with the clearing of the plates and the bill; we were invisible for most of the meal and then whoosh, get out!
I cannot understand how things could have changed so dramatically in a restaurant I have always loved. I would never recommend Avvios to anyone.
Excellence as always. Thankfully you can still order the penne arrabiata even though they removed it from the menu. Great waitress named Jill, friendly manager Jordan. I dine here on the regular because they always get it right.
Always wonderful! Great food, great service, and a delightful atmosphere. leave room for dessert, yum!
Food is always good and consistent and service is always the same
Delicious with great service and atmosphere! We will definitely come again
Sat on the side patio for our anniversary dinner.. we invited my husbands dad to join us. We felt quite safe fir him w social distancing measures that were in place. Our server was both friendly and efficient. Our food was great as well. Very satisfied
My service was ok. The server seemed very disinterested. Not rude but very bland. The black fig pizza was not hot and had too much cheese on it and zero flavor. For $16 not worth it at all
Your lunch menu needs more selections on it. And please bring back Half order of salad . We were told the restaurant does not do that anymore
Always great Italian food and service.
Consistently one of our go to restaurants for casino dinner.
I love this restaurant. I am a bit saddened by the scaled back menu due to COVID-19. My favorite was the cod sandwich for lunch. However, I understand. They have the best salads and they have done a great job creating a safe outdoor space to dine. The service was professional, friendly and prompt.
I love this place!
Great food , service , ambiance
Great dinner with a great server Brenna in very trying circumstances!
Unfortunately we had a rather loud party next to us on the covered side patio. Made it very difficult to have a conversation with my companion.
I met friends at Avvio and the food, atmosphere and service was great.
I have dined there before and am never disappointed. The food and service are wonderful.
As always, we really enjoyed the food and service at Avvio's. Especially our server...she was exceptionally sweet and attentive.
Great service and food
The experience at the bar is always friendly and efficient for a quality lunch, on a schedule! The team behind the bar are Top Notch!
Celebrated an anniversary. They were so
Wonderful, brought some bubbles to cheers & dessert was on the house! Wonderful time & food was delicious
Literally our dinner was amazing. I would eat here every night and be pleased. Worth every penny.
I ordered the butternut ravioli with lobster, but I do not eat lobster so I asked if I could if i could have it without the lobster. It was delicious, but I was kind of bummed that the price wasn’t adjusted to reflect no lobster. So, I paid $29 for 8/10 pieces of ravioli. It was our anniversary, so I didn’t ask for a manager to see if it could be adjusted.
We came for dinner to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We sat outside in the sunroom and felt perfectly safe. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. The restaurant is going above and beyond for safety. My husband enjoyed his veal Parmesan and I loved the salmon. We picked this restaurant because we could guarantee a good meal and fine service. We were not disappointed.
Always great food and service!
Exceptional in every way… Thank you for the wonderful experience always!!!
The food was good... we've eaten here quite a few times. Since Covid this is out first dine in experience. Our server was ok...offered bread- had to ask twice- had to ask for water the menu is limited -likely due to Covid- but overall...I would go back
The penne con pollo and Tiramisu were fantastic, and the service was exceptional!
You Mixed up my reservation and your receptionist was not willing to straighten it out. I had my text confirmation with me.
Avvio has been a favorite restaurant and your food and service has been very good....until now. I have a turkey sandwich for lunch each time I go and the last one was not anywhere like the others I have enjoyed. It looked like it was thrown together. The bread and turkey were not warm. The greens were swimming in oil or ...

I love Avvio, I’m never disappointed and feel safe with their precautionary practices during Covid-19
We ate in the outdoor area and it was fabulous. They had the bottoms of the plastic windows rolled up so that the wind wasn't blowing on the food. Everything we ordered was outstanding and the service was excellent!
Thank you for joining us and glad you enjoyed.
Sat at bar. Good food and service
Thank you for joining us.

Thank you Anna! Glad you enjoyed.
Very good service and food. The waiter was attentive and the outdoor seating kept people apart.
Thank you Larry! We appreciate the kind review.
Food and service was great. Attentive staff, food was really fast, no waiting.
Thank you Marc!
always a great family meal! Nice menu selection. Excellent food quality. Since covid, this is one of the few places that always feels “normal.”.
The restaurant does an amazing job with safety.
Thank you Tracy!
Dining out during a pandemic can be challenging. Being older I look only at restaurants that offer outdoor dining areas. Being in the Garden City area I noticed that Avvio had a nice outdoor seating area, so I went ahead and made an afternoon reservation. I was pleased with the seating area, the service snd the food. Everything was delicious. The freshly made tiramisu that was recommended was the best I have had in a very long time! Definitely planning to make the trip again to enjoy their food.
We look forward to seeing you again too. Thank you for joining us and your review.
AVVIO never disappoints. Friendly atmosphere and excellent dish preparation.
That's great to hear. Thank you Craig.
