Avventura Deli Waterbury CT

I was pleased to see a short story run about Avventura Deli in the Sunday NY Times.

Avventura has been one of my go to delis when I'm in the area (also Gaetano's in Stratford and Chaves in Bridgeport). Avventura uses high quality ingredients and they make everything fresh. Also a very nice old school Town Plot Italian neighborhood vibe, people are very friendly and laid back there.

I stick to the grinders. I've never tried the baked goods, though I've heard good things.

  1. MY FAVORITE! I used to work in Waterbury (Post University) and Avventura was one of my favorite lunch places (and to be honest there is some great food over there). I studied abroad in Sicily in college and Avventura is the closest thing to an Italian deli I have seen. The paninis, fried artichokes, gelato and baked goods are to DIE for. Seriously I work in West Hartford now, live in Glastonbury and legit contemplate driving all the way down there for lunch some days.
