avano's bistro took over from apizza heaven, which was a good restaurant, and has painted, lightening the interior. in addition, the owners feature large, framed photos of the area from the gallery next door. all in all, it is a most pleasant change. as to the food, what we had was excellent. my wife had pasta bolognese the sauce of which she pronounced as good as her own, and she is a good italian cook. i had the chicken breast stuffed with chorizo and spinach; while it made my mouth burn, it was wonderful. this entree came on a bed of couscous and was topped with a pickled vegetable relish. it was delicious. the wine list, however, was nothing to write home about. according to the waitress, they are cleaning out the old selection to bring in new. regardless, the food and ambiance make avano worth a return.

I just went to the former Apizza Heaven that is now renamed and restyled as Avano Bistro. I went for happy hour and had the rustic hummus and falafel appetizer. It was awesome, but you have to like garlic. The rough ground chick peas were great rather than the usual, run of the mill pureed style of hummus. Great salt and garlic punch. If this is any indication of how the rest of the place is being upgraded, then I am looking forward to coming back very soon.

We were there with some friends tonight, a party of 5, 2 separate checks! We waited for 15 minutes for Nicole to come to our table. She had absolutely no personality! We ordered drinks, when our drinks came we got an old flat sparkling water, stale bread, when Nicole was told she could have cared less! After our meal, which was ok! We waited 20 minutes for our check! She added gratuity knowing because of her service she would not receive a tip! When the owner was told, she too copped an attitude!!! Will never go there again!!!

The waitress with the red pony tail..Nicole was horrible. We sat down for 15 minutes before she even came to our table to take our order or even bring us watèr. Her additude was the worst. And when it was time for our check it took her another 15 minutes just to bring it to us. I had to get up from my seat and ask her for it and even then it was an additude from her. The food was great! Four stars for the pizza.

Wonderful unique choices for pizza! Beautiful day and sat outside. Will come back. Service a little slow, but we were not in a hurry. Definitely brings the atmosphere of Sedona to you.
