Meet Angie & Claudio, Owners
Nonna and Pop moved to Florida in the 90's from New York. Angie's family came to the United States in 1902 from Calabria Italy and Claudio came to the states from Buenos Aries when he was 15. They have four children and four grandchildren. When their tribe is fully assembled, they're 14. They're a very close family and continue to celebrate the traditions of their Italian and Argentine heritage.
After their software company was acquired in 2015, they purchased a food truck just for the fun of it. Their GoodaFooda brand was an instant success and that's how it all started. They would often pull their food truck into the Avalon community and fell in love.
The demand for their food continued and that's when they ventured into their first fast casual location. They serviced the Winter Springs and Oviedo communities for several years. Then, the Avalon opportunity came along. They both knew that Avalon was where they were supposed to be and that's when the magic happened. They passed their GoodaFooda brand over giving them time to focus on their new full service space.
In December 2020, they signed the lease for Avalon Eatery, sold their home in Winter Springs, and moved into the community walking distance from their new space. Avalon Eatery was launched in March of 2021. It was started with 80 seats, wine & beer. Today we're 150 seats, full liquor.
Their space was built with every detail perfectly planned. From the start, Angie knew she wanted her space to feel welcoming while focusing on the environment. The decor in Avalon Eatery is as diverse and fun as their menu. They focused on repurposed furniture, and lighting. Table linens instead of paper. Glass instead of plastic. They invited local artists to share their work and offer pieces for sale. They included lots of fun touches creating the perfect vibe. Avalon Eatery has been recognized by Orange County and the Surfrider Foundations as an OCEAN FRIENDLY RESTAURANT.
Nonna wants your visit to be memorable and is known to walk the floor chatting with visitors insuring everything is perfect. They've created fun events changing their space into a destination restaurant, keeping the community engaged.
Once a month they host a street party celebrating different themes...Latin, Line Dancing, Disco, Freestyle to mention a few! They close the street down, and have a party! Their Trivia isn't just reading off a card...it's an EVENT with sound, music, and lots of amazing effects. Their tag line is EXPECT the UNEXPECTED and it's clear why.
