We had a fantastic experience with First & Last. We planned a surprise party there for a group of about 70. The management was extremely easy to work with in making the arrangements and our waitress, Que, was fantastic. Food was abundant and delicious.

The first indication that we were in trouble was when I went to the service station and got salt, pepper and butter. Our arugula salad arrived, the waitress left, and I wished for parmesan and fresh ground pepper. She came out later with our entrees and I was able to ask for these....$9 for a small salad of only arugula.... More

This place is really nice inside and a grate place to take a date. But it's a little pricy for most things.

The food is good typical Italian comfort food. Both meals have been good, but nothing fantastic. My biggest gripe - and why I might not return - is when a kitchen closes early. We walked to the restaurant on Saturday night, arriving at about 9 pm to hear, "the kitchen closed because it was a slow night". I will at... More

We celebrated a milestone birthday with 30 family members at this nice Italian restaurant in Avon. Staff and cuisine were excellent and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Great Italian food. This is our go to restaurant every time we think of pizza or pasta. They have great meatballs and spaghetti among a variety of many other things to choose. Their menu is varied with many delicious meals. The food tastes fresh and is always delivered with the best tasting bread. They also have wonderful desserts.

Met up with a friend for lunch. Spacious interior with various seeting. Slightly slow service and it was not full of customers. Good place to chat and catch up. My tomato soup had too much cream, but it was cheap for a big bowl. The basket of bread was ample and filling. I would return because it's convenient, but not... More

quality was poor. bread cold. ordered spaghetti and meatball/sausage. sauce tasted bland and like it was straight from a can costing 35 cents. So incredibly disappointing as I used to like this restaurant. Saw girl in kitchen without gloves on moving spaghetti around with her bare hands. where have the standards gone?
