Despite the considerable selection of meats, cheeses, and hot and cold dishes, ever since I tried their "Paradise" sandwich on a panini (grilled chicken breast, mozzarella, prosciutto and pesto mayo) I haven't been able to bring myself to order anything else - and I've been PLENTY of times!

This is the best Italian delicatessen ever. The selection of Italian foods, sandwiches, meats, cheeses as well as pastries are absolutely great. No matter which sandwich you get you will thoroughly enjoy. The pastries are authentic Italian pastries. We stop to have lunch there whenever we are in the area. We are never disappointed and you won't be either

My daughter and I were traveling thru Waterbury and she used trip advisor to find a place for lunch. The reviews led us here and we were not disappointed. I had the New Yorker and she had the Italian. The grinders are so big we saved half for dinner.

I grew up with Avventura's and there's a reason pretty much every local knows the name. Avventura's is a great little Italian deli with the best grinders (subs) ever! While I go for the sandwiches and sides usually, they also have Italian baked goods. Town Plot is a small Italian section of Waterbury with some of the best local Italian... More

They catered a Christmas party for us. We had twenty five people, there was more than enough food and it was delicious. Our menu was chicken florentine, sausage broc rob, meatball and eggplant rolatini. The food was tender and full of flavor, all my guests loved the food, will use this deli again.

Our only problem was what to eat!! So many choices. We ordered four sandwiches and each one was great. We were too full to enjoy a pastry, but will be going back soon.

We picked up a small box of pastries on our travels recently and were very impressed. Sfogliatelle are usually difficult to find in my area, but the ones at Avventura Deli were flaky and delicious. My husband also ordered a cannoli, which he really enjoyed. We will definitely be back the next time we're on I-84 in Connecticut.

If you want a genuine Italian deli then this is the place. I have NEVER been disappointed with ANYTHING I've ordered from this place. I also can't name anyone who would disagree. Their grinders/subs are delicious! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this deli!

I don't think I've had an authentic canoli before. These are absoutely delicious. I bought some other items but do not know the names of them. One was like a mini pie covered with powdered sugar with a ricotta filling inside. I hope I get to go there again to try more things. It was hard to choose!
