Comfortably settling into their new home on Penn Ave. in Downtown Scranton, the AV Restaurant and Lounge continues to collect a following of faithful local diners. The ambitious menu features delicately crafted Italian dishes, an extensive wine list, creative cocktails and craft beer. The exposed red brick interior and soft lighting offers an intimate and inviting atmosphere and the convenient location make the AV Restaurant and Lounge a popular stop for both locals and visitors.
AV is short for “altra voltra,” which means “another time” in Italian. It’s the perfect fit for their traditional recipes and historic venue. In fact, the building, which dates back to 1910, led Food Network to name AV the Most Haunted Restaurant in Pennsylvania.
Kickstart your appetite with a beautiful cheese and salami preparation. Then move on to small plates like the favorite house-made meatballs or bruschetta. And if you still have room, try one of their signature pastas or entrees like salmon, skate or filet mignon.
