The lobster-stuffed clams and bruschetta crostini were great starters to our meal. Next, my husband had roasted mushroom soup. Their bread with olive oil and freshly cracked pepper is amazing! Ray, our server, was attentive, friendly, and helpful. I ended up choosing the Penne Rustica (roasted chicken, shrimp, proscuitto, parmesan cheese, and penne pasta cooked in a rosemary cream sauce. Fresh parmesan was grated onto the entree at the table. (Can you say yum?!) My hubby chose lasagna bolognese (no explanation necessary). The bread and sweet tea were replenished frequently. Lastly, the desserts looked so tempting, but we waddled out of the place as it was. Maybe we can save room for those for next time. I would definitely recommend this place!
You will never settle for a Joe's Pizza & Pasta ever again. This food is authentic, and made with care and only the freshest ingredients. The menu has just enough items as to not be overwhelmed, some familiar, some curious, and some traditional. Everything is cooked perfectly, the pasta is NOT overcooked and the seafood is always cooked to perfection. The servers are smart, accurate and they are far from forgetful. Between the atmosphere, the food and the service, you feel like your bill will be $100 or more, but for two will not exceed $20. I recommend this restaurant to all of my friends and to anyone looking for great italian food.
Great quiet little restaurant with good food and soft music. You can talk without yelling - it's small and well staffed. I've been eating at Aventinos for 30 years off and on. They went through a period of being over ambitious, but have returned to their roots in serving authentic food at very reasonable prices. The co owner, Ericka is part of the original family. The Chef is a talented young man- Chris. When you see the owners of other restaurants eating here, you know they are here to stay and on the right path. It's a good experience. Bob Lanier MD
