“Under new ownership”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

A little pricey, but worth it! Food is excellent, service is excellent. The entire restaurant has been re-done with new ownership.

“Too salty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

We loved last year menu so we went back this year during Brimfield Week. The new Avellino's was disappointing. The service was nice. The olive oil dip for the bread was outstanding. Everything else from soup to all the entrees were unfortunately too heavy handed with salt. It killed the nice environment and pleasant ambiance. I doubt it will be there next year, and if so we won't be back.

“Newly Renovated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2012

The lower level of this two story dining spot has been recently upgraded to include an open kitchen design. There are two "chef's tables" available, with Chef Enrico preparing meals of his choice for a party of six or more. This is a must dining experience.
Kudos also go out to Chef Robbie for his exceptional culinary work.

“We were dissapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

Years ago this used to be a good restaurant, so we decided to go for a nice lunch. We were very dissapointed with the quality. We found it over priced and not too fresh. We will not go back.
