Happenings & Events


Boston’s legendary restaurant review critic, the Phantom Gourmet, stopped by recently to taste test and dig in behind the scenes at Avvio. We’re thrilled to share the beautifully filmed experience with Chef Greg and his team showcasing Avvio’s dynamic kitchen and colorful, Italian fare described by the Phantom as “music to your mouth”. Enjoy!


Ease into the day with new, seasonal additions to Avvio’s scrumptious brunch menu. Try freshly-made Challah French Toast with caramelized bananas and luscious Foster sauce or a hearty chicken hash with pulled Baffoni Farms chicken, wood roasted vegetables, butternut squash, Yukon gold potatoes, two poached eggs, Hollandaise sauce and a grilled country loaf.
