Had the Margarita pizza with caramelized onion, delicious. I had read reviews complaining about the wait but at 3:30 on a rainy Saturday we were able to sit right down. Service was good and pizza arrived much faster than we thought it would. Their fresh lemonade was really good, they use the whole... read more

Best Mediterranean pizza around. I also tried the huckleberry vodka lemonade - it was very refreshing on a hot Friday afternoon. My husband had the Italian cold cut and it was also good. Ava's is always a solid choice for lunch or dinner when visiting St. Michaels.

We had a trio of awesome pizzas from this restaurant last night. I had the vegan pizza with walnut pesto and added cheese. Super delicious. The Chefs special pizza with arugula and prosciutto was also a group favorite.

This is our second time to St. Michaels and every time we asked for restaurant recommendations, we were told to try Ava's. We preferred being on the water and misunderstood the pizzeria part, so passed. This year, we decided to go for it and boy are we glad we did. Ava's is so much more than a pizzeria (although the...

Stopped in for lunch at Ava's Pizzeria. Looked quiet outside, but was quite busy inside. They have outdoor seating as well, on the side street. We started with an order of the fresh chips with parmesan cheese - light and tasty. We each had a different pizza and they also shared. The special was a "grilled cheese" pizza with 3... More

We sat in the garden patio. Lots of fun. Great people. Great food, lots more than Pizza. Drinks are great. Deserts are good. So, try their desert too!

We love stopping her to get our pizza fix; I know it's not Jersey pizza, but it still is good. You have to sit in the back patio it's just lovely. Great wine and beer! This time on our visit we went for lunch and met a lovely lady who comes every day for lunch with her rescue dog. We... More

My husband and I ate lunch here after visiting the winery and brewery. I cannot say enough great things about this place. We ate outside on the patio which was really neat. We ordered the old bay homemade potato chips which were really tasty and crispy. For our pizza we created our own, a white pizza with goat cheese, meatball... More

Burnt crust, skimpy toppings, and $36 for a 12" pizza with two toppings plus three draft beers...and the pizza wasn't that great...just okay.
