Avon will soon be home to a new Italian restaurant concept created by the owner of the well-known Heck’s restaurant (Cleveland’s Ohio City and Avon locations). Antica Italian Restaurant + Bar will open soon (tentative date is July 12) in the space formerly occupied by Cafe Piccolo, 35568 Detroit Road. A restaurant called Flair 22 was originally planning to open in the space, but the owners eventually decided not to open amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fadi Daoud, Antica owner and Avon resident, noted once the space became available it was ideal as it’s in a ‘great area.’ “Avon is booming,” he said in an email. “We want to see the dining scene in Avon grow. The development/shopping center we’re in is the only one that features only local Cleveland businesses, no chains.”
