“Great food on the South Shore”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

What a treat to return to Ava Cucina after moving away...the food is better than ever. Great service, fresh sauces, always a delight to try something new, wonderful !!! The North End in Boston is tough to beat as far as great Italian, but Ava Cucina is a must try on the South Shore, you will not be disappointed.

“Wonderful find”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

At last -- a great local Italian place to become our regular. Everything is homemade, and they specialize in sauces here. Try the orrechiette pasta -- served in a sausage and tomato sauce with hints of fennel Amazing... Family owned and operated -- keep it going.

“Outstanding Italian food in a warm friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

Ava Cucina was opened in June 2010 by a husband/wife (chef/manager) who had previously worked in other local restaurants. I have eaten there with family or friends 6 to 8 times in the past year and love the food, service and atmosphere. The food is excellent. They do chicken, veal and seafood as well a pasta dishes and pizza. They always have an interesting pasta carbonara on the menu and it is a real Italian carbonara, not an alfredo in disguise. Lasagna is always great. They always have a few daily specials. They also will convert an interesting appetizer into a dinner for a reasonable price increase. Prices are reasonable for the food quality and portions are good. They have a wine list but i have always been very happy with the house wines. People with me who have ordered cocktails have said the quality and drink size were fine. In summation: a great place for good real Italian food. (note: you might need a reservation in the summer when the nearby Music Circus is having a concert) Also, there was always plenty of on street parking when I have gone there.
