My wife and I took my son out to eat here, we were greeted upon arrival and sat us near a window. Our view was downtown Sturbridge. The decor of the restaurant was classy, clean, well laid out with just the right of music in the back ground, with out being to loud at all, just enough for the perfect... More

When my husband and I travel I look for restaurants that offer Gluten Free. This was one of the best. We started with the antipasto and I was offered gluten free bread (Udis). I then ordered pasta with vodka sauce, it was delicious. My husband who is not gluten free had ravioli which he enjoyed. Although our waitress said they... More

Fantastic Italian American menu with a bit of a fine dining tweak. The menu has all the old favorites but the recipes are touch more on the gormet side. You HAVE to order the Sicilian Calamari. It's a bit spicy, but out of this world. The eggplant parm is possibly the best I've had anywhere. And the lobster ravioli come... More

I was excited to eat at Avellino based on the very positive reviews. My dinner (I had the Cod with Mussels in Red Sauce over Penne) was just OK. My niece had the Lobster Ravioli and she said it was very good. The arugula and asparagus combined two of my favorites and it was excellent! Dessert was very good too!... More

We are local and go here about every 6 weeks. It is a great meal with friendly staff and nice decor. A perfect way to unwind at the end of a busy week.

We went here based on the excellent reviews and we were not disappointed. Parking was confusing but park out back or in the overflow lot and ignore the whistling swan signs as that was the former name. The building is old and lovely. The dining room was charming. I had the catch of the day which was halibut. This was... More

The service was excellent, I told the waitress to bring the appetizer and entree that she and the chef decided I should have. The fried olive app was great, followed by a ricotta gnocchi with bolognese. Finally, tiramisu - heavenly. Everything about this visit was great - atomsphere, service, wine, food, even the prices.

We celebrated a job offer received by our daughter at Avellino. We started as a table for 2 but shortly after ordering we asked to add a third person. The staff did not hesitate to move us over 1 table and place our order on hold until my husband arrived. Excellent wine selections, great music, breeze blowing in thru the... More
