I had the dolce agro salad which was awesome. First time ever having gooseberries which were delicious. For my next course I had the chicken parmigana and it was fantastic. And I finished with the chocolate ganache cheesecake and a cappuccino to finish the perfect evening.

This restaurant is a good choice if you are in Downtown Oshawa and you like Italian food. The food is always good (not great)! It is reasonably priced and they have a good selection of wine . The service has always been good.

Being an italian restaurant, a couple of us thought we'd enjoy a nice italian pizza. What a big disappointment. The cacciatore pizza was so dry, bland and lacking in toppings. Not what we... More

Prior to attending the Il Divo concert at the General Motors Centre in Oshawa, my friend and I decided to go to the Avanti Trattoria for dinner (on the advice of my neighbour). When we arrived at the door of the restaurant, the lineup was long, filled with people who were also attending the concert. We waited no more than... More

I've had a number of very tasty lunches here. Service is prompt, food is very good. Good variety of specials and who doesn't love the stone pizza oven.

Although it's not the best Italian food I've ever had, it is much better than Il Fornello. We did have to wait a long time to be seated, but that's to be expected for a busy Saturday night. The service was very good and quick, and the food was great. Will return again!
