My husband and I have been to Avellino a number of times, but it is no longer special. The food and service are both okay, but not special. I had the Gorgonzola bread - the bottom was so hard with cheese that I could not cut it, the rest of the bread was soggy and dripping oil. The calamari was... More

Overall the word that comes to mind is mediocre. The bread reminded me of a loaf of Wonder Bread, very doughy and voluminous with no substance. Eggplant Parmesan was essentially lots of sauce on spaghetti. The Risotto was a bit stiff and not very creamy and rich as traditional risotto should be served. Service was very slow. I have to...

First time at Avellino's and it will not be my last. Good music and atmosphere and great food. I had the Cesar salad and bolognese. Amazing

Recently had dinner here on a Saturday night. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The restaurant was busy and had a good vibe. We had a nice table in the corner of the main dining room. The calamari appetizer was one of the best we ever had. We had the lobster ravioli and the mixed seafood with risotto. All... More

We stopped here for dinner on our way back to CT from Cape Cod. We were greeted very nicely and seated immediately. We were served water, given menus and advised that our server would be with us shortly. Over 10 minutes later our server appeared, never made eye contact, and asked if we wanted anything else to drink. Unfortunately, my... More

A group of 4 was greeted and seated immediately. Our waitress was very accommodating as we had two vegetarians with us. She helped them order food they would eat. They loved the new harvest salad. I had the gnocchi which was very good. We had a great dessert, the Pistachio Lace with raspberry sauce. We will return soon.

We had our rehearsal dinner at Avellino's Labor Day weekend. It was a very large party and Brad and Tammy went over the top to accommodate us. Communication about the menu, price and set up of the room exceeded expectations. Our guest raved about the service and food. Our waitress Chris was top notch. We will recommend this restaurant and... More

I attempted to book a rehearsal dinner at Avellino and have never received as poor customer service. I first contacted Avellino on August 20 and spoke with the director of operations about the space they had for rehearsal dinners. I visited the space the following day and called back the director to find out what the minimum cost for the... More

Hi Jen, My name is Dan Gonya and I am the General Manager of Table 3 Restaurant Group. I wish to extend my sincerest apology regarding your inquiry for your rehearsal dinner at Avellino. The chain of broken or lack of communication from my staff is truly unacceptable. While it is true that we were in the midst of making... More
