We saw all the glowing reviews, but unfortunately our dinner here was not as good as we expected. We called ahead to see if we needed reservations (it was a Sunday night in mid-December and most of the tourists had left town by the evening)....More

Having one of my usual midweek cravings for a couple slices of hand-tossed pizza, I happened upon this hidden gem. Better? It's also a good wine. Nice staff. Fair prices. Good crust.

If you like pizza Ava’s is the only place to go on the Eastern Shore! Don’t look any further for great pizza! Very high quality in a cozy setting. Don’t forget to try their shrimp as a starter.

We had a lunch (3 old friends on a girls weekend) of delicious pizza and scrumptious arugula salads. Just perfect topped off with powdered donuts handmade and served to us piping hot. It was a pleasure, as regulars sat in the bar side, we sat...More

Always a definite stop when I go to St. Michaels. Always ask for Peter if he's working.. Best waiter there in my opinion.

I don't think so. It's more of a restaurant than straight pizza shop.
