This quaint restaurant is one of our favorites! Annette & Viincent are wonderful owners. There is consistent food quality and friendly atmosphere always. Annette posted a sign on our last visit, as you came in. They have a new grandchild! Congrad's!!! The loose translation of Ava Cucina is Grampma's Kitchen! how appropriate is that now?

When an Italian restaurant over cooks the pasta you KNOW you are in trouble ! This place needs a complete overhaul ! Our dinners were enormous bowls of inedible mush with way too much Glucky and greasy sauces !!! Even the antipasti was over dressed and yucky !

This is our go-to place for Italian food when we don't feel like cooking. This family-run restaurant always makes us feel comfortable and we have never been disappointed in the food or the wine list.

Two of us went. Walked in the door. No one was there yet. We stood there for 5 minutes or so then the owner left the two fellows she was talking to at the Bar. Seated us and the service went downhill from there. The food was just OK

Was excited to try this restaurant after purchasing a Groupon. Poor experience. Upon walking in, it was obvious that the restaurant was severely understaffed. Only 2 waitresses for the entire place, including the bar. Then upon ordering our food, we waited well over 1/2 hour. The chicken parm was average but the chicken cacciatore had to be returned by 2... More

We had dinner at Ava Cucina last night. Let me start by saying we had a nice table with good service. Delicious warm rolls to start and a small house salad comes with the meal. We had calimari for an appetizer, all little circles no legs which are the best part and lots of batter crumbs. One friend had gnocchi,... More

We tried Ava Cucina before attending a concert nearby at the South Shore Music Circus. We had a reservation for four, which was helpful as this wonderful restaurant is small. The food was delicious and extremely plentiful. We were concerned about our leftovers being in our car on a hot summer night, and we jokingly asked if we could leave... More

We are a restaurant's worse nightmare. 4 generations ranging from 84 years old down to 2 months. 10 of us in all. The 2 year old fell asleep on the way to Ava Cucina. When we walked in, the entire staff made us feel so welcomed. They sat us immediately and instantly brought warm rolls to the table for the... More
