About AVA Cucina
As its name suggests, AVA Cucina feels like your grandmother’s Italian kitchen. Its small, European atmosphere with warm terracotta tiles and rich wood walls welcomes you in for a hearty meal. Husband and wife team Vincent and Annette Agostino have given life to a true family affair as owners and operators of the restaurant, with their five grown children all contributing now and again as well. With a name that means grandmother’s kitchen in Italian and represents the couple’s initials, at AVA Cucina you feel like you are in their home, with delicious classic Italian favorites and enticing originals, home-cooked with the freshest ingredients.
