Avenue Italy Cucina Italiana
Sauteed eggplant with marinara sauce and parmigiana
Fried calamari with spicy sauce
Manila clams sauteed in white wine and garlic with grape tomatoes (Red sauce optional)
The food was excellent as usual. It’s a really comfortable place for dinner. I highly recommend it
There are really two restaurants under this name (Which should be Cucina Italiana, not that word scramble) One is American and the other is southern Italian. The American offerings are common and boring. Apparently they are not familiar with the popular beet salad as theirs consists of a bushel of lettuce and a small amount of small beet chunks which were either old or had been frozen. The goat cheese was scarce and in teensy bits. After discovering their Italian dishes are great, we had a puzzle so I asked who the chef is: There are two and they are from Italy. Aha! That explained it. Italian cooks know very little about American food as even in the US they seek out Italian food for themselves. Or, maybe the Yellow Vase cooks work here as the Italians don't like cooking American food. However, I understand why the restaurant serves stuff like that: They need to attract locals to come during the week.
Now for what I hope people will find out: The Italian food served here is of the very highest quality. Having been to Italy about a dozen times, we easily recognize quality levels. We have a favorite dish that is
hard to find here called cecca, which is impossible to find made correctly except at Il Pastaio. The chefs here make the best one we have ever had, even in Italy. Its concept is very simple - pasta and tomato sauce - but correct execution isn't simple. They don't make it lazy man's style like I do, rather they cook a substantial quantity of tomato sauce a long time to result in the very deep, earthy, pungent flavor of the sauce. A faux pas here is that adding shrimp or chicken is offered for the Americans....must break the chefs' hearts....but I understand the need. Also amazing are the scallops and a dish I eat daily in Italy but rarely find it here is wonderful: Melanzane, baked layers of tomato sauce, cheese, and grilled eggplant. Light and fresh Tiramisu is nice.
They get an F for wines. The 3 we tried were horrible but corkage is$20.
We were celebrating a friend’s birthday and we had an amazing evening. Every dish we ordered was delicious and beautifully presented. Our server, Chloe, was the best! We highly recommend this restaurant for great food, ambience and service. We will be back soon!!
Very good menu. Excellent service. Full bar. Plenty of parking. Mellow ambiance.
Sub average food, overpriced for service and quality
Have not been here in a couple of years.....went on Valentines Day. They had a special menu for that day.
Was much pricier than I remembered, I would not mind paying more if the quality and taste of the food was better. The South Bay has many other Italian restaurants which I think are much better. For Valentines Day, I thought I would try someplace different with my wife instead of our usual italian places....Bad Idea!
Great Valentine’s dinner. Server was very attentive and courteous.
One of our favorite Italian Restaurants. Being of Italian decent, we appreciate excellent food . We are never disappointed here, and will return often
My friends and I went to Avenue Italy for a birthday dinner. We ordered the chicken picatta, spaghetti, and chicken parmesan. Every dish was absolutely delicious. We were even sopping up the sauce with the bread! For dessert we shared a creme brûlée
which was the best!
calamari were exquisite, as were scallops. Halibut was just ok and the lake fish was fair.Tiramisu was right on the money ,cheesecake paled by comparison.
We enjoyed a birthday lunch for an office employee and were so very pleasantly surprised with the service and the menu. The menu had plenty of choices for every taste, and the server suggested a very good, moderately priced wine that paired well with all of our dishes, then brought a lovely dessert for the birthday celebrant. Will definitely return.
We had a great meal. Service and food were great! We’ll be back. Best Italian food in PV
Menu and food quality is great. This restaurant feels and tastes like an authentic Italian family restaurant. Really enjoyed my dinner there.
Always a great meal, excellent service and wonderful atmosphere!
The food was very good. Salad, Eggplant Parmesan, and Lasagna Bolognese. The Chianti and Pinot Grigio were outstanding as well! There were a couple of things however that made the experience less than great. We were a party of two, and even though the restaurant was not crowded at all, we were jammed into a small table right inside the door. Also, we were there to celebrate my Wife’s birthday as I indicated on my Open Table reservation, but there was no acknowledgment at all which was a minor disappointment. Overall, food very good, experience just ok.
The entire experience was exceptional. Service, food, ambiance. The staff was very friendly and the owner came out to greet us as well as check on us during our meal. They made us feel like we were VIP’s and it was our first time there. I highly recommend going here it’s worth a drive up the hill...
Great food as always. Easy to book a reservation on Open Table, just showed up and didn't wait at all.
We had the worst service. I’ve eaten here many times and that will be our last time. And they added a 20% gratuity. Our waiter was awful and didn’t deserve it.
My family had dinner here at Avenue Italy Cucina Italiana for Christmas Eve and had a fabulous dinner. The appetizer variety dish was yummy. My son and daughter both had the scallop linguine which was incredible. My wife and I had our favorites, lasagna and eggplant parmesan, both delicious.
Food was amazing and love the ambience in the restaurant... wine bottle options are a little high however.
Food is average. Nothing special. The waiter had an attitude. The atmosphere is great.
Came in with a long time friend and so enjoyed our meal and ambiance. We asked to change some items up and it was no problem. Out server was so nice and very much enjoyed ourselves.
Nice restaurant, good food, but service is seriously lacking.
We have been to this restaurant several times. It is never consistent, Usually it's good, never excellent.
Our last visit was terrible. Veal was like eating leather. Veggies were not hot, not even warm.
Probably will not go back for months if not years.
Who ever owns this place needs to eat there and dump the staff
The food was great. The pasta dishes were bountiful but the lasagna wasn't heated through, unfortunately. Other than that, everything was great and they even accommodated a dish that wasn't on the menu. Delish!
This was our second visit to the restaurant. We enjoyed it as much as the first time though a Saturday night was much busier then a midweek so noise level was high. Food is fresh and delicious.
I was there for lunch and ordered a $15 salad and asked to add a piece of salmon. The salad was good but but no means amazing or special; kale, grapes, feta cheese and pine nuts in a pretty small portion. When the bill came in they had added another $15 for the salmon, so suddenly my mediocre lunch was $30.
Whatever the server “suggested” was below average. Brussels Sprouts appetizer was way undercooked, tasted like boiled Brussels Sprouts. Pasta recommendation was dry and overly spicy. Our group couldn’t eat either dishes.
Food is consistent. Waiters are friendly and service is very good.
My wife’s birthday dinner. We had an awesome time! Fresh food with authentic flavors. We love this place!!
Beautiful restaurant with wonderful authentic Italian cuisine. Best chicken piccata in the area. We are regulars. Great for much too.
Service was very slow. It was busy. We had to wait for bread, water, etc.
We finally tried this restaurant and it was delicious! Although a little pricey, the food was amazing. We had reservations at 6:30 on a Saturday night, but arrived early, however, we were happily seated right away. The service was fine, but the server was not too “personal” or social. He seemed to be on “autopilot” but it was okay. We definitely will return.
Really great place.
Great food with lovely service. Especially love the pizzas as appetizers and their Cesar salad dressing is home made. Had the sea bass and it was fantastic. Husband had chicken and was great.
I have already recommended this place to a friend. The desserts were great. Light, fluffy, and fresh. Although not Italian, maybe add another dessert like a cobbler with ice cream.
We went with family for my brother’s birthday! The food is always delicious. The staff is always friendly and attentive.
I can recommend this restaurant (without hesitation), I’ve been coming here for years and it’s consistently great!
We had made a reservation for 5 people. They gave us a table that is really for four people. They added one chair to the side. There wasn't enough room for 5 people to eat on the table. when we complained they said that's all we have. We said then why did you accept our reservation if you didn't have place for 5 people? They said well everybody makes reservations! And this is all from the so-called manager. Finally after lot more arguing, they added a table for two to this table for 4 to make room for 6 people. However this table's level was higher than the level of the table for four. so it was awkward for us to eat on this two- level made up table for six. Extremely rude and non customer-friendly treatment by the so-called manager! we had guests from India visiting us. We had taken them out expecting to be a nice and pleasant dinner outing. The way the restaurant treated us, left my guests with a very bad impression of how this restaurant behaved. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT.
One of the best meals I have ever had. Service was excellent. Chef came to our table and we enjoyed speaking with him. Would prefer if they were air conditioned. Offer gluten-free bread and pasta.
