For a half century, the Fascia family tree has been made of solid chocolate. John and Helen Fascia first began making the treats in 1964, with their three daughters helping out in the family's kitchen. Eventually, the business grew out of the house and today the Fascia's chocolates can be found throughout Connecticut and at their central Waterbury factory. The family still leads the team and continues to make small batches of hand-crafted chocolates as well as other treats?including authentic gelato made on-site.

When Avventura first opened in 1969, it was a serviceable, all-purpose neighborhood grocery. But the owners decided to concentrate on housemade food and pastries, and it's now what the New York Times calls a "first-rate delicatessen and pastry shop."
Its menu of Old World Italian and American fusion food satisfies discerning palates with paninis topped with imported prosciutto and mozzarella, hot and cold grinders, sauce-smothered pastas, and chicken entrees. Other housemade options include stuffed breads and pastries, which are made onsite daily. Even its salad bar comes chock full of house-made toppings, including the popular marinated chickpeas.
