My family and I arrived at Avicolli’s on a slightly snowy winter evening but we were immediately warmed up upon stepping in to the friendly and inviting restaurant. We were quickly seated in a cozy booth and looked over the scrumptious menu. One problem that we always have at Avicolli’s is that we can never decide what to order because everything they make is great! Luckily a friendly and knowledgeable server helped us decide between some of the delicious menu options! We began our meal with an order of the Calamari Fritti, a gigantic portion of tender pieces of calamari, dredged in Avicolli’s very own mixture of seasoned flour, that is then fried to perfection and served with house-made tomato sauce and lemon wedges. We also decided to try the Arancine, also known as rice balls, a delicious combination of risotto, ham, salami, mozzarella cheese, and Romano cheese formed into a ball, which is then breaded fried, and served on a bed of house made tomato sauce. Both appetizers were scrumptious!

After that we were served Italian Wedding Soup, a fresh garden salad with the house balsamic and crumbly bleu and homemade (and super tasty) garlic knots. For an entrée Kyle decided on the Lobster Ravioli, a delicious portion of claw and knuckle stuffed lobster ravioli simmered in a garlic cream finished with spinach. As a seafood and pasta lover he said that this dish really hit the spot! I decided on Broiled Scallops, with four beautifully plated broiled jumbo diver scallops in a lemon white wine sauce with sautéed baby spinach and it was served with a side of roasted potatoes. The scallops were perfectly cooked and paired perfectly with the sauce and spinach. Everything was fanstastic and we were totally stuffed so we decided to take dessert to go! Later on we split the creamy pistachio cheesecake and a slice of heavenly lemon mascarpone cake. As always, our meal was nothing short of delicious, the atmosphere was warm and comfortable and the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and willing to go above and beyond to ensure you enjoy your meal.

Make 2022 your year to start living deliciously with Avicolli’s! Whether you are a regular customer or have never been, you are always in for a real treat at Avicolli’s.
