Don't even think about it. Just go. Everything is great, every time I go. One of Waterburys best by far...

My family and I have ordered much from Avventura in terms of pastries and dessert items over the years. Their pastry chef is adept at providing very fresh and authentic, traditional Italian-American dessert options (such as cannoli, sfogliatelle, tiramisu, pignoli cookies), as well as thumbprints, a variety of cheesecake, carrot cake, fruit tarts, and rugalah cookies. Dessert trays and/or boxes are not cheap, but the quality is high and consistent. The staff is typically friendly and prompt. The deli items are definitely good and have a following (particularly the grinders), but I have been an Avventura patron primarily for the desserts, so I will have to follow-up on the establishment's other offerings in a future post.

I had the pleasure of visiting Avventura for this first time this past summer when they invited me to participate in a cooking event as a guest chef. While there, I was able to sample many of their cold and hot case items, pastries, cookies, and gelato. I had one of the best sandwiches I have ever had on deliciously fresh baked, crispy ciabatta bread. Working in the restaurant industry, I found Avventura to have many fresh, quality products that a high-end restaurant would use for very reasonable prices. The staff there was very welcoming and helpful and I look forward to making another trip back soon to get my fill of all the delicious food and specialty items Avventura has to offer.

I go to Avventura every week nearly without fail. I notice a huge number of regulars, Exellent service, Friendly Staff, and Adventurous dining! I've watched as recently a subway has opened up down the street... and this subway hasn't taken even one customer! If you've been there im sure you go often, and if you haven't been then then im sure you will. Bottom line avventura a must one any ones to- do list!!
