We have been here a few times and typically it is PACKED. Just went there and had to leave. Usually the parking lot is so full you can't get a spot. The other night it was only at most 1/3 full. There was only us and 2 other tables in a section with lots of tables (they have multiple rooms)... More

First and Last is about 5 minutes away and there are a lot of restaurants in the area. We have been there several times and the service has been excellent as well as the meals. Our favorite is Penna A La Vodka with sausage. We always bring some home. On the weekends they have raisin bread to die for!

Fresh classic Italian food; much of it homemade. Chopped salads are fantastic. Eggplant parm hot, crispy, sauce a little sweet. Pastas are uniformly great. Bread is also homemade and great. Worth a visit. Parking lot can get crowded, but place is huge inside. Also very good for takeout and party catering. Frequent flyers.

Located directly on Rt. 44, it is very easy to get to and has parking right there. The parking lot fills up if the place is full, though. Food is OK. Service is good.

The other reviews on Trip Advisor sum it up accurately. Poor service, disgusting food and just overall a bad experience. My Wife and I went there for an evening together without the kids and wanted to stay local. The service is horrendous; it seems that the wait staff is bothered by having to serve you!!! The only thing worse than... More

we had a wonderful experience with our two children here. The food was delicious: spaghetti and meatballs, wings, and the broccoli rabe and ricotta pizza. Never hesitate to go here when you're in the area.

They make some of the best pizza in the area. I would rank this place a bit higher than Bertucci's, but a bit lower than De Capo's or Max a Mia. It's one of the better restaurant options in Avon.
