Had a great lunch here! Service was very attentive, and the menu offered many different types of pizzas, salads and other item. Our group of 4 enjoyed three different kinds of pizza: mediterranian, white and margherita .... all delicious. Would dine here again when visiting the area. We were in St. Michael's for the day, and was happy that several... More

Stopped here for lunch and decided on the pizza. Which was delicious... Atomosphere was great full of local people and plenty of space. You weren't piled on one another. Only a couple of nags were that we weren't given any cutlery or napkins so by the time we found someone we'd had to start eating. Lets say my fingers were... More

Big meals, great beers and friendly service - what else do you need! We sat out the back in the enclosed patio under the heaters and were very comfortable. The famous meatballs are highly recommended. The kids got their own menu and the prices were great value.

The stone-oven pizza is the best. I highly recommend the Mediterranean pizza. We eat here several times every time (at least 3 or 4 times a year) we visit St. Michaels. The pizza is amazing, atmosphere is pleasant, service has always been excellent, and everything else we've tried (salads, appetizers, spaghetti, and sandwiches) has been perfect.

We went here on a rainy Friday night in January and sat at a table in the bar. My husband enjoyed the oysters appetizer. We also got home made chips with blue cheese. We've had something similar and another restaurant and didn't like Ava's version as well. We shared a pizza with red sauce, mushrooms, and sausage which was very... More

Ava's is a cozy stone-oven pizza/wine place on Talbot St. in St. Michaels. We had some special circumstances which Ava's was very, very accommodating with, and our server was very attentive and gave good recommendations on menu items. The food was solid, but nothing out-of-this-world. We had pizza and a pasta dish, as well as a salad, all of which... More
