Had their Chicken Cesaer wrap. Chock FULL. Delicious. Fresh! At about $6 a GREAT value. They showcase a wide variety of Italian specialties including baked goods and pastries. Clean and friendly I'll go there for a sandwich or wrap rather than spending money for a 'chain-made sandwich'. They also cater!

I have always been a fan or frequent customer of Avventura Deli. Last visit not so much.. Had a sandwich that was poorly made and they were extremely stingy about the deli meat they put n the sandwich.. I asked for everything on it.. Got nothing but lettuce and two pieces of salami and two pieces of cheese. I feel... More

The staff is very friendly, the choices of hot and cold specialties is wonderful; food is consistently good; the bakery keeps you coming back even when you shouldn't!

In search of lunch, I asked a local for a recommendation and adventura was it. From the moment I walked in, the deliciousness of an old school Italian delicatessen invaded my senses. I had an awesome beef and cheddar grinder and will definitely return in the future.

Never dissapointed when I order sandwiches or catering for work. They're very accommodating and great at helping you plan a menu. Food is delicious and people always ask me where it's from.

Ordered my lunch today with coworkers. It was great ..I ordered the reporter panni. It was everything you want in a sandwich. My coworkers were very happy with what they ordered as well.

Ordered the Mootz Panini and there was literally one red pepper on the sandwich. It was the saddest thing I've ever seen. I tried to give it a second chance and I got the Veggie sandwich also bad... the artichokes were tough and it was completely messy. Wont be back. The staff on the phone is rude also.

Food is delicious, real old time Italian flavor. When I walked in, it smelled just like my Italian Grandmother's kitchen!

Definitely stop here. Great food. I suggest the Italian combo. The chicken cutlet is also quite yummy! There isn't much seating so grab and go.

Despite the considerable selection of meats, cheeses, and hot and cold dishes, ever since I tried their "Paradise" sandwich on a panini (grilled chicken breast, mozzarella, prosciutto and pesto mayo) I haven't been able to bring myself to order anything else - and I've been PLENTY of times! Their dessert selection is nearly as big as their deli offerings -... More
