    I have been to Flavia’s now for several occasions, including anniversaries and birthdays, and have always had a nice time. The appetizers have been excellent each time I’ve gone (highly recommend the meatballs and polenta, the artichokes, and the squash blossoms for appetizers), and the gnocchi and other pasta dishes are out of this world. We got two different gnocchi dishes and two pasta dishes for the table to share last night and loved being able to sample each one. My dad insisted on staying there for dessert because he enjoyed everything else so much. Our waiter was excellent as well and the decor inside is just so cute! Can’t wait for my next meal at Flavia’s!

    Great spot in Asbury. Service was spot on and the food was really good. It’s BYOB, which I didn’t know - but a liquor store down the street was a quick fill-in!

    Our first visit to Flavia Cucina was on Easter Sunday. My fiancé and I sat at the counter which we prefer most times. Besides enjoying the food, we got to see how the food was prepared right in front of us. The food did not disappoint and it was fresh and tasty. The ambience was chic and sophisticated for Asbury. The service was prompt and friendly without being overly intrusive. Also, the noise level was comfortable which is not something I can say of many restaurants these days. I highly recommend a visit and we will be back.

    I accidentally stumbled upon this little gem. I am a gnocchi fanatic and good gnocchi is hard to find, they have a gnocchi menu with multiple sauce options. The meatball polenta app and zucchini flowers were delicious, great bread. My fiancé had the tagliatelle with pork and meat sauce that was very tasty and I had the gnocci with fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil. They were everything I was hoping they would be, soft pillows and very light. Just like moms!! Tiramisu was delicious and they offer cappuccino and espresso, most but not all Italian restaurants do. Bring your sambuca. They have a wine list you can get by the bottle only otherwise a BYO. We sat at the counter and were able to watch all the cooking be done right there. Our server Sarah was a seeetheart , a great server and very pleasant and made great suggestions!! Literally can not wait to go back and have the truffle cream gnocchi she highly recommended!!!

    This was my second time here and I can’t say enough good things! One, the ambience and vibe of the restaurant is homey, quaint and not to mention extremely clean. Two, the service is impeccable each time. The servers attention to detail and their recommendations are always on point and never fail. Lastly, the food is out of this world. I can’t wait to get more of that gnocchi!!

    Decent Roman style menu. Pasta cooked al dente. Amatriciana seemed to be missing guanciale. Cacio a pepe was decent. Best app was the Fiori di Zucca were the best things we tried. Really wished there were some Italian speaking servers and/or hosts.

    Everything we tried was amazing (even as left overs the next day). This was our first cheat meal in two weeks so we ordered two apps, one gnoochi , the surf and turf and a chicken entree. All things considered, not too expensive (especially since it’s BYOB). Must go back to try their homemade pasta!

    I hadn’t been back to Flavia’s for a long time so I was pleasantly surprised to see that the menu had expanded to include lots of delicious options to the pasta-centric original menu. The vegan gnocchi with garlic and zucchini was amazing as an app to share with friends, and the chicken piccata with lemons and capers was spot on. Just don’t forget it’s BYOB if you like wine with your meal.

    This was our first visit and we won’t be going back. This isn’t a cozy Italian restaurant and while there was a space heater at the door, the heat didn’t seem adequate on cold days. The Salmon special was tasty but not worth 39.00. The side salad was only brought once the dinner came and we asked and it was field geeens with a very good vinegrette but heavy handed and it was soffy. The salmon was plated with mashed potatoes and a side including cubed potatoes which was both odd and not a very colorful presentation. The salmon slice was on the thin side. The Gnocchi had delicious tomato sauce yet the potato dumpling was heavier than I prefer. Also, the fried eggplant wasn’t breaded (which I guess would be strange in a pasta dish) but deep fried in oil. It was too spongy and heavy and odd for my palate. I think when I questioned the eggplant the server was taken aback- she was correct the menu did not say breaded and fried but fried The restaurant is BYOB. Again, delicious red sauce!

    If you're looking for creative, innovative pasta and gnocchi preparations Flavia's is your destination. We've been here twice and haven't been disappointed. This time we tried the fried and stuffed zucchini blossoms which had a delicate and crunchy coating filled with mozzarella. We also tried their version of pasta alla Norma made with gnocchi and Pasta Amatriciana. For dessert we had one cappuccino, one Americano and a delicate and light tasting Tiramisu. Lovely and hospitable service wth delicious food; and its BYOB.
