It's been a few years since we last visited and the food is still amazing! The restaurant was very busy...a party of 30 upstairs...and our server was still attentive and friendly despite the Saturday night demand. We had the white pizza with extra toppings and the parmesan potato chips are a MUST! Pricing is fair and food portions are perfect.... More

We arrived at a busy time and waited at the bar. They have an outstanding wine selection and Stuart, the bartender was helpful. We ate on the enclosed back patio by the fireplace. For the appetizer we had the New Orleans and for dinner I had the Shrimp Pappardelle Pasta and my husband had the Short Ribs. They were both... More

This place was recommended by a few friends. It was delicious and I love the small town feel of the place. We got ham and pineapple pizza, and the meatball for appetizer.

The food was great, the outside area that is now enclosed it wonderful.. Very well done.. The only problem I had, they let people bring there 2 dogs into the now enclosed eating area.. I was very unhappy about this..And as far as I'm concerned it was a poor choice of the restaurant..

We had just arrived into St. Michaels and need a quick bite- Ava’s had a delicious white pizza that my fiancé and I shared. We also shared a salad which was alright- nothing special. The prices were reasonable. I would definitely recommend this place.

Is it wrong to have the Damian's wasabi oysters for breakfast? That was our exact question after having dinner at Ava's two weeks ago. This appetizer was probably one of the best we have ever had. The flavor was so complex that we considered returning the next morning for another serving since our brief vacation here was ending the next... More

This Italian food was fresh, flavorsome and large portions. The dessert was divine and spaghetti and meat balls was great. The service was eager and helpful and very attentive. A great local spot for a fine feed.

Yummy, my husband and I had a recomendation to eat here. Happy we did. We hate chain restaurants, and this place is all about quality, and TLC to the customer. We split a pizza, and meatball sliders. The pizza was delicious, just wish they made a larger size pizza (it appears that is made with one size) The meatballs were... More

We stumbled in here based on other reviews and were pleasantly surprised! Such a warm and inviting atmosphere. We sat at the bar and Mick was our bartender. We had the spiced sangria which was the best sangria we have ever had and that's saying a lot! Jenn even had her first oyster with the baked oyster appetizer and like... More

Our family ate at Ava's twice in three days, both times for lunch. The food was great both meals. Recommend the turkey sandwich, meatball sliders, fresh potato chips with Old Bay seasoning, and the pizzas. The special cauliflower chipotle soup was incredible. Service was nice. At busy times, call ahead. We had to wait for a table the first time.... More
