Avena - Downtown
Salad and both pasta dishes were exceptional. Austin provided excellent service.
Thank you Avena for opening this beautiful Restaurant, I love Italian food and so far this is the best Italian restaurant I had being. The food it's very tasty and freshly made. I love your house made pasta (Bolognese) and bread basket. I will come back soon.
The place is gorgeous, the wait staff is very professional,and the food was delicious
Everything was great from the food to the service. Duck, gnocchi and bolognese pasta simply delicious. Order the zucchini flan with truffles. Our server Christina was fantastic & we will definitely be back!
Afraid of being in an empty resto but place quickly filled up when sun came out and weather got warmer. That said, food was incredible. The ravioli with quail egg and perigord truffles, risotto with king crab, Colorado lamb chops, showed serious chef skills. Delicious. Will be back. Glad to have a nicer restaurant with higher quality (than the usual) in the hood.
Depressingly empty. Food ok. But dead vibe.
Appetizers were good but the entrees were pretty disappointing. We ordered the special lobster risotto which was severely undercooked and the duck pasta was way too salty...
Very pretty and spacious Italian restaurant on Sixth Ave. Superb service. Wonderful cannolis.
Avena is a great restaurant and his chef deserves a Michelin star. His risotto is perfectly cooked and seasoned. The fish is always fresh. The bread basket is a treat.
Giselle is a perfect host.
This restaurant is a BIG HIT! We live in the neighborhood and are pleased that we have a new favorite West Village restaurant. Everything is PERFECT right down to the delightful waiter who didn't have the nyc attitude.
Dining in New York is an adventure - there will be forgettable and unforgettable experiences. My friends and I dined at this fabulous restaurant for my birthday celebration and we couldn’t be happier! The service was impeccable, the food was superb, the ambiance had a cool vibe, the price point was reasonable considering the high quality and artful meal presentation and we felt amazingly transported. What a gem of a find!
Awesome. Very friendly. Food was awesome. Good value.
Weird ambience and bad decor- the restaurant was empty, food was nice though
Totally amazing. Service. Food. Venue. Atmosphere. 3 star!! Incredible. Book it!!
