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!

Avventura is consistently top-notch. I returned this month for a pastry order, and was not disappointed. My family and I are repeat Avventura customers for the fresh pastries and dessert items. Traditional Italian-American dessert options in this order included cannoli (two fillings), sfogliatelle, and various cookies. The macaroons were good. As I've stated before, dessert trays and/or boxes are not... More
