HANDMADE. MODERN. AUTHENTIC.

 

Ava's menu features inspired Italian cuisine prepared in a simple and rustic fashion. Central to our vision, we have house cured salami, fresh handmade pasta, and Neapolitan pizza cooked at 900 degrees in our Italian-made Acunto pizza oven. Ingredients will be fresh, seasonal, and local whenever possible. We have plenty to offer at Ava's from our modern and relaxing atmosphere, deliciously refreshing cocktails, house made desserts, and the perfect patio to unwind at the end of your day. Much care is put into our food, it's a daily ritual for us. So stop in for lunch, dinner or just enjoy one of our unique cocktails. We truly enjoy serving our customers and if you haven't tried Ava's mouthwatering dishes yet, you are definitely missing out
