It can get crowded on Friday and Saturday nights, but there is overflow parking within easy walking distance. It is a pizza place, with good pizza. I enjoy their burgers, which they offer without buns for those of us on diets. This is a rare pizza place who can actually cook a medium rare burger (you have no idea how... More

Service was quick and friendly, and the food was great. Great selection of Italian inspired cuisine. Great pizzas available in a few different sizes. I ordered the sweet pea pizza topped with peas; it was great. Pasta is homemade and fresh. Decent and reasonably priced wine and drink list.

Had two meals at the First and Last and both were scrumptious. This place is quaint but spacious with ample room for diners. The salads were exceptional and the wedge salad was amazing and satisfying. It looked like a huge baked Alaska and delicious. The brick oven pizza is amazing. Cooked perfectly and not charred as many of these are... More

If you are looking for a typical Italian-ish America dinner than head to the first and last. It really isn't terrible food, just terribly predictable. James and I went on a Saturday night and had the quickest meal I have ever had in my life. Why? Mainly because we showed up at 8:15 and they would closing (lights off, everyone... More

The First and Last, while not bearing a classic Italian name, is as close to Italy as you can get in Avon or the surrounding area. The name comes from it's original location which was the last restaurant you passed when leaving Hartford and, therefore, the first one you saw coming into the city. The pasta is homemade as are...

Had a good lunch with a very good waitress. She knew the menu and explained very well. I had hot sausage with hot peppers and pasta which was very good. Our cousin wanted the same thing but not "hot" no problem she said. My wife had a salad which she enjoyed. They had a good variety of beer which I... More

First and Last is always good, no matter what you have. Pizza is very good and all the entrees, salads and soups are delicious. They participate in Restaurant.com, which is an added benefit. Don't forget to have dessert.

Sandwiches and grinders were delicious. Service was good . Salad came and was a joke of a salad. Arugula salad came and was just lettuce and dressing. Overall great food and will be coming back . Also very reasonably priced.

This is billed as a great place to dine. That could be because there are not so many good food joints in Avon. The food was not very tasty and they didnt have a lot of variety...service was average too.
