Limited menu but delicous food

This is a different take on Italian. Everything is served ala carte. The pasta and sauces were all very delicious. We will definitely be going back soon.

Fuze always does an outstanding job with both the food and the service. The prosciutto wrapped asparagus is a must have. Sitting outside on the patio in the summer is always a pleasure and we try to sit outside whenever we dine there. We have been there several times and have always enjoyed the food, so we keep going back.... More

Italian Fuse was excellent and close to a five. The Bolognese was on par with Mom's, Salmon, Flounder Fransies (sp) all home runs. Maggie had the Chicken Fuse where the add Shrimps, Scallops, huge lump crab meet et al. BYOB, friendly service, white tablecloths. I'd give it a solid 4 stars. Cost was $160 for 2 couples + gratuity.

We really enjoyed our visit to Fuze. The food was basic red sauce Italian and that's exactly what we expected. My home made pasta with bolognese sauce was much better than average and tasted like home made. The Fuze salad was surprisingly good with pepperoncini, cheese and a mild italian dressing. The price was very reasonable for the beach. We... More

We went there with young children and the manager was really great. He found us a table inside and was very attentive when the little ones dropped a glass or water. He had experience and it showed. We had the pasta and everyone was happy. The outside patio looked nice. Great food and service. We will be back. Again it... More

We have been to Fuze in Avalon several times this summer and it is fantastic !!! The ambiance , food and service are top notch. The home made pasta is delicious and the entrees are excellent. Sunday gravy special with home made fettuccini is delicious. Make sure you save room for the delicious cheese cake. Julie was our waitress last... More

I came here with my family, the food was good nothing special it was just your average Italian restaurant. It was a BYOB which was a plus.

Six of us had dinner last week. The restaurant was crowded and a bit noisy. The staff are pleasant and efficient. The manager came to our table to check and see if everything was okay - that's always a nice touch. The food was good but a little pricey. I was surprised that all of the entrees were between $28...

Six of us tried Fuze Italian a couple of days ago (not to be confused with the original Fuze, also in Avalon). The food and service were both excellent and creative. There is the usual mix of Northern Italian dishes, basically differentiated by different sauces, including a la Fuze, which is done with chopped tomatoes, shrimp, scallops and lump crab... More
