The waiter was inattentive at best. It was however, entertaining to watch the waiter fighting with the manager/other waiters. Needless to say we won’t be returning.

But it was the piano music that made it a really great evening. The pianist play show tunes and would play songs requested by those enjoying the music with dinner. We will go again on a Friday.

We went on a Tuesday night and really enjoyed the music.

For my latest visit, I had the Sea Bass prepared in a lemon and caper sauce with roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables. The bass was delicious and cooked to perfection. We started with a Prosciutto and Melon appetizer and the canteloupe was sweet and very fresh and balanced the saltiness of the prosciutto perfectly. Our waiter was attentive and friendly and everything about the experience was perfect. This was a Wednesday night and the dining room was packed...for good reason, you will not find better Italian food in the area!

We showed up on time and the hostess gave us a nice table right away. We had water and delicious bread quickly and time to peruse the menu. We started with wine and it was a very generous pour. Our waiter may have been having a bad night, as he was less than friendly, but the support staff refilling the water and offering us more bread, Parmesan cheese, etc were very pleasant. After we placed our order we didn’t see our waiter until the bill arrived, which was fine. We understand the burdens placed on servers these days. (But he could have been a little more pleasant). We ordered the bruschetta to begin and it was less than desirable. Four small squares that were difficult to eat and lacked a lot of flavor. It is one menu item that has the highest profit margin and most frequently ordered and they could have done better. The tomato topping was under seasoned and the small square of mozzarella looked rushed and had no taste. (the bread basket with olive oil, garlic and parsley was the star of the show). We ordered three pasta dishes, all with red sauce. The sauce was band and watery. It barely stuck to the noodles. The rigatoni was swimming in sauce and it had very little flavor. For the prices, I expected much more thought and flavor profile. The eggplant Parmesan was the biggest disappointment, however. The chocolate flourless cake was delicious but could have used a little vanilla gelato for presentation and visual appeal. I eat out a lot and full disclosure I am Italian and quite particular about the food, but for the price of the food almost $200 for three people, I was underwhelmed. I am not sure I would return. I know things are hard now, but it’s not hard to season food with the high profit margins of a bowl of spaghetti.

How Open Table coordinated our reservation with the restaurant is a mystery. We ended up having to scramble on new Year's eve to cook dinner for 7 people at the last minute. not amusing!

I was hoping to have a nice New Years Eve dinner with my wife but I wasn’t informed it would be closing. Sooooo disappointed.

I understand the reason for the abrupt closure but wish we had been notified. It was disappointing for our New Years Eve dinner plans.

BF and I showed up to Avenue Italy for our evening reservation which I booked through open table only to find the restaurant was completely closed. Would have been nice if the restaurant would have contacted us to tell us they were closed or closing early that way we would have had time to book somewhere else instead of us trying to scramble at 8:30PM to find another decent restaurant to celebrate New Years Eve/ my birthday . Sad disappointment that could have been avoided .

We ordered the pasta special and they didn’t tell us how much it was before hand. I asked for the salad to be brought after we had our appetizer and they brought it before we had been served the appetizer, I told them to take it back. Then they brought it back while we were having the appetizer. The special was okay but not worth $39. The salad didn’t have enough dressing. Dinner for the two of us was $198 with a bottle of wine, which I think is steep for pasta. Don’t know that I will go back. Wait staff made us feel like they were rushing us, they turned the lights up at 9 pm sharp as if to say go home.
