In search of lunch, I asked a local for a recommendation and adventura was it. From the moment I walked in, the deliciousness of an old school Italian delicatessen invaded my senses. I had an awesome beef and cheddar grinder and will definitely return in the future.

Never dissapointed when I order sandwiches or catering for work. They're very accommodating and great at helping you plan a menu. Food is delicious and people always ask me where it's from.

Ordered my lunch today with coworkers. It was great ..I ordered the reporter panni. It was everything you want in a sandwich. My coworkers were very happy with what they ordered as well.

Ordered the Mootz Panini and there was literally one red pepper on the sandwich. It was the saddest thing I've ever seen. I tried to give it a second chance and I got the Veggie sandwich also bad... the artichokes were tough and it was completely messy. Wont be back. The staff on the phone is rude also.

Food is delicious, real old time Italian flavor. When I walked in, it smelled just like my Italian Grandmother's kitchen!

Definitely stop here. Great food. I suggest the Italian combo. The chicken cutlet is also quite yummy! There isn't much seating so grab and go.

Despite the considerable selection of meats, cheeses, and hot and cold dishes, ever since I tried their "Paradise" sandwich on a panini (grilled chicken breast, mozzarella, prosciutto and pesto mayo) I haven't been able to bring myself to order anything else - and I've been PLENTY of times! Their dessert selection is nearly as big as their deli offerings -... More

This is the best Italian delicatessen ever. The selection of Italian foods, sandwiches, meats, cheeses as well as pastries are absolutely great. No matter which sandwich you get you will thoroughly enjoy. The pastries are authentic Italian pastries. We stop to have lunch there whenever we are in the area. We are never disappointed and you won't be either

My daughter and I were traveling thru Waterbury and she used trip advisor to find a place for lunch. The reviews led us here and we were not disappointed. I had the New Yorker and she had the Italian. The grinders are so big we saved half for dinner.

I grew up with Avventura's and there's a reason pretty much every local knows the name. Avventura's is a great little Italian deli with the best grinders (subs) ever! While I go for the sandwiches and sides usually, they also have Italian baked goods. Town Plot is a small Italian section of Waterbury with some of the best local Italian... More
