Authentic Italian cuisine

We were a party of 12, and the restaurant gladly accommodated us. We shared some appetizers and enjoyed the fried calamari, arancini, and steamed clams. The Caesar salad was very good, and they had a nice variety of entrees, all of which were very good, and the portions were quite generous. We... read more

Fine dining suggests that all the details are complete. With that said, Fuze IS fine dining. The restaurant captured my undivided attention from the greetings of the friendly hostess to my last bite of luscious pistachio encrusted cheesecake. The details- reservations for two, Saturday night, 8:00, mid-September. Occasion: My birthday w/ my dashing husband. We shared a decadent dish of... More

Ate dinner here 8-27-14.Disappointed. Service horrible and very unorganized. First, we had to ask for an ice bucket 3x's. We had a couple of waiters but someone that wasn't our waiter brought the ice bucket. Waiter #2 seemed in a rush and stressed. Waiter 1 and waiter 2 did NOT check on us once after we got our meals.

I was crushed when the waitress informed me my menu selection was sold out. I had been dreaming of it for days. I was prepared for disappointment with my second selection.was I blown away! It was superb! The appetizers were delicious, fried cheese and calamari. The four of us were totally enthralled with our meals. Can't wait to go back!

We had a reservation for five people and were seated without wait into a booth....it was a little tight and the table a bit small but we were ok at first. Our server approached and opened with my least favorite line of "have WE been here before?" I don't know why this irks me but it does....I'd rather they just... More

Four of us were there on Friday night, the first night they opened for the 2014 season. We loved it last year and went many times. But they seemed to have changed the flounder francaise - three of us got the entree and it was so thick that the preparation did not work at all. We wondered what fish it... More

We had a very lovely first experience here last weekend. Our BYOB wine was quickly opened and enjoyed while we perused the menu with a little help from our waiter. Had a fabulous Caesar salad served family style, plenty for four people. Everyone in our party completely enjoyed their meals and we would go back in a minute!

An afternoon call garnered a preferred al fresco seating at Fuze. The "Alla Fuze" dishes offer your choice of chicken ($31) or veal ($32) topped with two average size scallops and shrimp a small portion of lump crab, and a few julienned vegetables. I optsd got the vesl that was tasty but coilc say it was tender. I requested a... More

We have a home in Avalon, and Fuze is by far our favorite restaurant on the island. The Sunday gravy dinner is the hi-light of our week (as far as food goes!). With a gun to my head, if I had to make a complaint, I wish there was an "adults only" section. I know it's a family restaurant, on... More
