Great lunch with friends.

So much more than a pizza place. Extensive menu. Great salads, meatballs with marinara sauce..with great Italian seasoning..short ribs were enjoyed by one in our party and my husband had the turkey club with avacado...which he really enjoyed. Everything was very fresh with great presentation... read more

Had the chef special white pizza with prosciutto, arugula and balsamic reduction. It was amazing. Salads and wine list were good also. Always look forward to coming to Ava's. Hope to try something new next time but can never pass up the pizza. Servers are good and always friendly.

The meatball sliders are amazing. We thought that they were going to be an appetizer but they were much larger than we expected. The bread was great, the cheese excellent, and the meatballs..... Wow. I will be back with an empty stomach for more.

Ava's not only has a wide selection of creative pizzas but also offers familiar favorites from across the pond. My sister and I enjoyed the chef's special white pizza with genuine prosciutto, arugula and balsamic reduction. It was mouth watering delicious!

Great lunch at Ava's. Had a couple beers and a great pizza. Try their biegnet's, they are awesome. Service was good, and the location is right along the main street, so you can just drop in for a quick lunch. We had a great pizza.

Beautiful outdoor patio with fun beer tap water fountain. Good service too! We loved the meatball slider appetizer. They melt in your mouth! Pizza was good, but a little soggy near the center. Would ask for it to be cooked a little extra or maybe lighter on the cheese?

Have eaten here several times and am always impressed by the freshness of ingredients and the creativity of the menu. Indoor/Outdoor dog friendly patio plus parking in the rear are added pluses. Be sure to observe the "on tap" waterfall. Staff is well trained. Wine list has variety of offerings.

Ava's is my favorite spot for casual dining inSaint Michaels. It's especially nice in the summer, thanks to the cooling waterfall in the outdoor section. My favorite dish is a sort of onion and sour cream pizza, no tomatoes, just lots of yum! I also like some of the all-vegetable offerings. Liza us great, too.

Ava's has a rotating light fresh menu. A nice place to visit in the summer when you can sit on the back patio and enjoy a light meal or glass of wine with friends.
