Avellino’s offers pretty much everything you would want and they do it well. Go once and you likely will find yourself going frequently. A great starter to share with your dinner partner is one of their shrimp pizzas. Excellent! Whether it be their veal piccata...More

Appetizers were outstanding, good selection of wine, average food and high end price. Poor service. We will go back again just for appetizers.

Went to Avellinos this past Wednesday with several friends. What a pretentious rip-off. Our bill (with tax and gratuity) was $80.00 for two salads, two entrees, one coffee and one dessert. All of which were mediocre at best. The food was flavorless. The bread was...More
