Great NYC style pizza on the Easyern Shore of Maryland

Great artesian pizza, good Italian food and good wine selection. They also have really good mixed drinks and beignets with raspberry sauce to finish off a wonderful meal! You'll love their outdoor space with mosaics and really different fountain for ambience. Great for all ages from couples, to... read more

We made a reservation but were seated in a crowded pizza-joint type table, although there appeared to be a dining room on the other side of the kitchen. The food was quite good, though, despite the noise.

My daughter had a Margherita pizza which was delicious. I had soup and baked oysters also very nice. We sat at the back of the restaurant in what is an atrium. I'd eat inside next time as it is warmer and cozier.

Staff went out of their way to insure our food was pleasing. My wife ordered a dish that had too much cheese and she is lactose intolerant so they substituted another dinner quickly

We loved Ava's! It's not a huge place but the food was excellent as well as the service. Our intentions were to try the pizza but once we were seated and looked at menu we changed our minds. There were so many options to choose from so we were a bit overwhelmed, in a good way. There is a full... More

Excellent wood fired pizza, salads, and homemade potato chips! Cozy and welcoming casual atmosphere. Great service even though they were packed while we were there!

Small, but very nice. You might have to wait, but if there is a room at the bar take a seat. The bartender Amber is great and the food is as well.

Salads were very good and the pizza was above average. The service was quite slow but the place was crowded. Would definitely try it again.

On a very cold day it sure was nice to sit in their sun room with two gas fireplaces roaring. The food was tasty and varied, the staff very friendly and there were many choices for wine and beer. Right in the middle of St. Michael's. There wasn't any thing to dislike.

It seems like there is always a wait at Ava's, but there's a good reason to wait. The food is a delicious experience. You cannot go wrong with the pizza--thin wood fired crust freshly baked. We tried the Chef's Favorite--white pizza, prosciutto, arugula, and balsamic reduction. OMG! The meatball sub was filled with three large meatballs and mozzarella in a... More
