My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Avellino's. As usual, they did not disappoint. The atmosphere is comfortable, we are greeted as friends, and we always feel at home there. The service is attentive but not intrusive, and the food is well prepared and presented. The portions are not huge, but they are enough to satisfy my husband...which... More

The other person has a pasta dish with sausage which she enjoyed. The best part of my meal was the dessert. I had a... More

We have eaten here several times before- we were very pleased with the food. We had a family dinner to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We started out the dinner by sharing a small cheese pizza. It was over baked- crust and bottom were black. We told the waitress- she said she would let the kitchen know. We next shared a... More

I am very sorry to hear that your meal didn't meet with your satisfaction especially at a special occasion like your daughter's birthday. It surprises me no one addressed the issue with the pizza to your satisfaction. As a family run business, we take great pride in our reputation and word of mouth recommendations and try to do the best... More

On a recent visit, Mother's Day, I had the pleasure of enjoying one of my favorite meals, Veal Zingara. Although this selection is no longer listed on the menu, the very accommodating staff always prepares it. The veal is so tender, you can cut it with your folk. This is only one of three restaurants I will order and enjoy... More

Every time we have eaten here, it has been delicious. My husband loves the pork Osso Bucco and I love the Chicken Scarpiello. The mussel appetizer is great and the Chicken Parm is out of this world!

I have been here a few times and each time I leave with a smile and leftovers. Authentic cuisine, friendly and accommodating service and always tasty specials. My father always orders the veal parm and says it is the best he has had in years. There are always large family parties here, so be sure to call ahead for reservations... More
