You will love it or hate it, there's no other way about it. Quite authentic Italian style food regarding sizes, styles, division into primi and secondi, and very, very good homemade pasta. Super interesting building, making it worth a visit just for that. However - the whole place is sometimes a bit dark/gloomy and empty, and the service is hit... More

The food there was good, they have really nice soup and good wine. Staff was friendly but spoke limited English, which is not the problem but the waitress had an attitude about it. The interior decoration and set up of the tables could use some more thought.

I was there some time ago and I must say they still keep their high quality standards in food and service. Prices are reasonable. Besides having ample menu comprising mainly Italian dishes turn zour attention also to a board with daily offer of fresh fish. There is a pool hall in the adjacent room.

I was at Avia after a few local people recommend it to me. I was honestly surprised at the amazing freshness of the home-made soup, pasta, bred and wine. The service was impeccable as was the interior design of this ex-cinema ticket hall. Very elegant, and I found the price astonishingly low for what they offered. Hope to come back... More

I was there with my family and we ordered autumn menu from pumpkin. Soup was little bit salty (I would prefer more natural taste without any spice for this kind of soup), but main meal and dessert was absolutely delicious! Meat of roasted duck was soft but juicy, and taste of pumpkin cabbage was amazing - really unusual than typical... More

I have only been to this place as part of a group Both with the English language Club and also with the Francophone Group of Brno. Both times the food was excellent - but tables are set like an open plan refectory - so not a tete-a-tete diner to propose to your loved one! Adjacent is a pool hall -... More

This is the kind of place which doesnt need expensive decor or over-dressed wait staff. I am a regular here, I never found anything wrong. home-made soft drinks, great seasonal menus, all is clean, food arrives on time. The menus are also very friendly to vegetarian and people who dont eat gluten. The prices are more than friendly, even too... More

I dined here during a work trip. The place isn't the most amazing thing to look at but I felt very comfortable there. The waiter was very friendly and attentive too. I chose beef carpaccio for starter which was tender and devine but could have benefited from a bit more acid. I then had the chicken scallopini with lemon and... More

Day trip to Brno knowing we were going to stop by and get our lunch there. We were just amazed with the beauty of the place. Modern architecture building turned into a nice restaurant. Food was good, price more than affordable. Highest price was less than 6€ (160 ck). First surprise: we paid the check and they didn't give us... More

Had to check out Avia after reading some reviews and happy to find it just two blocks from where i am staying. I found the old style decor, tiled columns, white walls and a old ticket box in the corner. Its really quirky and interesting. The big old clock hanging from the ceiling is one that flicks the minute hand... More
