Italian
Ava's menu will feature inspired Italian cuisine prepared in a simple and rustic fashion. Central to our vision will be house cured salumi, fresh hand made pasta and Neapolitan pizza cooked at 900 degrees in our Italian-made Acunto pizza oven. Ingredients will be fresh, seasonal, and local whenever possible.
Ava has limited seating, reservations may be inside or outside. We attempt to accommodate special requests, please let us know what your preference may be in the "add a special request' field. However, we can't guarantee all table requests. We look forward to serving you.

    First time visit, no lobster roll, and the french toast was okay. We'll be back but maybe not for brunch.

    Great service and food was timely. The menu had good variety and most in our party said 4-4.5 for the taste. We enjoyed the experience and would return. Thanks to Chloe for excellent service.

    I had a great time for my first time coming here! I asked the waitress what she recommended for a cocktail and she gave me three options. The Bayshore Breeze was so good and refreshing. I ordered the chicken parm and it was perfect! My friend is vegan and got the vegan chicken parm and she loved it too!
