So, once again, I believe that what a restaurant makes best, is not what I order; fish. Appetizers were mostly excellent, Saganaki, fried artichokes and I would pass on the zucchini chips. My wife ordered Spanakopita (spinach pie with rice) and that was tasty. I...More

Ate here with my husband and two daughters on a chilly Saturday night. The restaurant is very cozy with the fireplace going. The service is warm and helpful. The food is fantastic and the wine list is adventurous for the burbs. One note on the...More

Restaurant great for either couples dining or, particularly, large families. We were a party of 7 and we were able to get a table on the lovely patio (highly recommended if the weather allows.) Everyone ordered something different, so we really put the test to...More

We love the quiet, friendly ambience of Avli. The flaming saganaki mandolin of lamb with roasted potatoes are our favorites and are consistently good. Avli is also one of the few North Shore restaurants open on Mondays!
