Stopped in for lunch during a Saturday visit. It was a 20 minute wait, but we loved that they took our cell phone number and sent a text when the table was ready. You will want to order 2 of the 12 inch pizzas for a couple b/c they are flat crust. 1 will not be enough food. We loved... More

Stopped in for lunch. My wife and I split a great Caesar salad and a wood fired oven pizza. Screened window seat next to Talbot St let us enjoy the mild fall air and atmosphere of St Michaels. Perfect lunch stop.

This was our second time at Ava's and we were not disappointed. The service is wonderful, food is great and sitting outside on the terrace is an added bonus as it is hidden off the street. We also found out that Ava's is a dog friendly Resteraunt and allows dogs on leash onto the terrace so we had dinner with... More

Great atmosphere and food. I visit St Michael's a couple of times a year and always stop here to eat. If you enjoy brick oven pizza you should try it.

This is our 2nd visit here and it was awesome! The wine list is extensive and the pizza was delicious. The bartender recommended the clam chowder to my husband and he said it's the best he's ever had! The meatballs are TO DIE FOR! The bartender was incredibly friendly. Can't wait to go back!

The pizza was out of this world and the bloody Mary's were yummy. Better have deep pockets though. The eatery was right on Talbot st within walking distance to our stay.

The process to get a table was terrible. I called for a reservation but only had 6 people (you need 8). They told me to call back 1 hour prior and get my name on their wait list. I called at 4:30 for a 5:30 table of 4 adults and 2 kids. At 5:00 one member of my party stopped... More

Would get 5-stars but there were very slow to seat us - probably waited 10 minutes before someone asked if we had been helped - there were open tables too, it was a Sunday evening, not overly busy. And, to top that off we sat at our table for probably another 10 minutes with no hello, no menus, no water.... More
