Amici Italian Grill

 5 star(s)  (04/29/2008)
“Fine martinis, scallops were the best i had ever had and I have had them often. Creme brulee assortment was superb. The service was as good and personal for a large group of 12 as it was for a small group of three. Highly recommended.”

Amici Italian Grill

 5 star(s)  (08/04/2009)
“My daughter and I recently ate lunch here and the prices, service, and food were great! Our waitstaff was helpful, cordial and made us feel comfortable considering this was our first visit to the restaurant. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, serene and the music was a plus. You def... ”

Amici Italian Grill

 5 star(s)  (12/08/2010)
“Having just spent 10 days in southern Tuscany and having had a 5 star cooking class, I have to recommend Amici's Italian Grill in Avon as one of the best Italian Restaurants in CT. I had the spaghetti with bolognese sauce, absolutely delicious and authentic. My husband ordered the Salmon special and... ”

Vieng Thong Thai Cuisine

 5 star(s)  (02/03/2008)
“A very good selection of dishes wonderfully prepared. Delicious Pad Thai and papaya salad. Drunken noodles are excellent. Clean, inviting, very friendly owners and wait staff. I brought my grand children in and they made a special meal to accommodate their tastes and were happy to do it. I ju... ”

Tower View Pizza

 5 star(s)  (01/25/2008)
“Whether dining in the restaurant or ordering food for delivery, Tower View consistently sreves delicious food. Eating in the restaurant is relaxing and quiet. The service is excellent and they serve a chocolate cake to die for! The onion rings are fresh and crisp, pizzas are wonderful, but my fav... ”

Avon Old Farms Inn Restaurant

 4 star(s)  (12/13/1999)
“A lovely old inn with a rustic-elegant feeling. The food is interesting, nicely prepared and the service is friendly and relaxed. The bar area is cozy and the music to be occasionally found there invites lingering. A romantic place to go for celebrations of any sort and, interestingly, a good pla... ”

“Rustic colonial inn with a predictable menu. Not a family place for children. Service was excellent, quality of food was very good. Pricing was on the high side but should be expected from this type establishment.”

First & Last Tavern

 4 star(s)  (11/10/2000)
“Pizza was excellent, but menu was overpriced. Service was very good even though crowded. For a pizzaria it was pricey, but the food helped make up for it.”

Bickfords Family Restaurant

 4 star(s)  (11/10/2000)
“Family chain style restaurant with a standard fare menu. Standard meals are cheap, predictable and what you would expect. Very good value for the amount of food that you get as witnessed by the numerous diners that were seniors.”

Amici Italian Grill

 4 star(s)  (09/26/2008)
“The Italian Bread and Mozzarella is to die for. Service is kind of if-fy, depending on the night you decide to go. Over all, average value for the buck but has enough to make me want to go back. Bon Appetito.”

Fat Cat Cafe

 4 star(s)  (12/03/2003)
“Entree and appetizer special selections are always interesting and excellent. However, below average dessert selection.”

Vieng Thong Thai Cuisine

 4 star(s)  (12/31/2007)
“Relaxed setting, many vegetarian options, BYOB.”

First & Last Tavern

 3 star(s)  (02/03/2008)
“Pricey. Food is ok, nothing special. All in all a pleasant evening out but I won't rush to go back again. The pasta sauce is just not very good.”


 2 star(s)  (10/08/2009)
“Clumsy decor; very loud; overly complicated food; amateur service; delusions of grandeur Typical pretentious suburban eatery. Trying too hard to be something they aren't. Packed most every night due to the dearth of non-poisonous eateries in the Farmington Valley and the lack of operational taste ... ”

“This USED to be a steakhouse, but with the addition of fried foods, the quality has dropped to the dirty floor. I was a regular in this restaurant, but none of the servers that I was accustomed to seeing are even there anymore. I would not recommend this restaurant to my worst enemy. The new "che... ”

Avon Old Farms Inn Restaurant

“Food is mediocre at best. Service leaves a lot to be desired. The ownership has changed several times and the new owner clearly does not know how to run a restaurant and the chef seems to think mediocre is okay. The ambience is nice if you like the experience of old colonial.”
