Looking for a late dinner after a rainy day of travel, we remembered a previous visit to Avellinos and the wonderful meal we enjoyed (That was back in 2017!) It was a slow Tuesday night due to heavy rains but still a decent crowd and...they were well staffed. Parker, our server, as well as the other staff members were friendly and provided exceptional service. We split an order of Francesca's Lasagna and still had some to carry home! When our bread basket was empty, another appeared.
The restaurant is not in a "you see it when you drive by" location, but we were glad we remembered them and their location in the First and Main Shopping Mall.More
If you're looking for an upscale place to take the family or treat your kid and their roommate, Avellinos is the place. It is a solid, credible Italian meal no matter what you get. It is a place for grownups who know what Italian food...tastes like in American.
The pizza is New York style and ranges from simple and nice to a completely extravagant experience. If you want eggplant or sundried tomato on your pizza, you simply can't do better.More
We ordered online for carry-out. Two lasagne dinners and a piece of lemon cake. The online app said the order would be read at 7:01 PM. I arrived at 7:02 & of course our food was not ready. I was assured it would be ready...in another 10-15 minutes. I stood by watching customer after customer pick up their carry-outs before me. I was repeatedly assured my food would be ready in just a ‘few minutes’. After waiting for 25 minutes I requested that they just refund my money (I was crazy enough to prepay online). The cashier said she would get a manager. When the manager came he told me he’d be right with me as soon as he served one of the tanks (as though I hadn’t already waited too long while others patrons were served!) He left & before he came back I was finally given my food. I returned to my hotel room only to discover the restaurant had neglected to provide us with any eating utensils or napkins! Lasagne is not a finger food, so I again left my hotel to find a Dollar Tree store where I purchased two forks, spoons & knives. I returned to my hotel to try to enjoy my cold lasagne and warm tossed salad. The room temperature lemon cake was very good. I suspect the lasagne would have been pretty good as well had I been able to eat it while it was still hot. All in all, a pretty miserable experience. There are other Italian restaurants in the area. Do yourself a favor and give them a try.More
They feature Mediterranean (Grecian and Italian cuisine) but don't understand the nuances and native touches of quality. Designed for the Olive Garden lovers of frozen entrees not for quality "made to order" expectations. Sal understood the difference!
Avellinos has become our favorite Italian restaurant in Blacksburg, VA. We love the pasta e fagioli soup as an appetizer and our favorite entree is the veal parmesan with a side of pasta. The food is very flavorful and its great to eat it with...their home baked bread. They always manage to meet , greet, and serve with a smile, even when there is a line of patrons waiting for a table. The restaurant fills up fast, but we have always had a great experience. Great for families, couples, or anyone looking for a great Italian meal. We highly recommend Avellinos if you are in Blacksburg or Christiansburg, VA.More
My husband, myself and our two Young kids stopped by for take-out for our hotel room after a long drive up from North Carolina. We got pizza, a cheesesteak, chicken parm dinner and my daughter got a cheeseburger. Everything was delicious and the portions very...good! We will definitely return for dinner if we’re in the area again.More
