The food here is definitely not a fine dining Italian eatery. Everything on their menu I could easily whip up at home. Also, not one authentic rose sauce on their menu. We had steak (it was very small and overcooked and we ordered medium rare), chicken parm with alfredo (overall good and the sauce was nice and light) and a... More

Had dinner here in August with friends and thought would go back in a few weeks from now as my friend and I are seeing a show at the Regent. They refused to take a reservation unless we were a large group so guess we will spend our money elsewhere. The food was average at best but not to take... More

Finally made a visit here and will most definetly be back soon. Shared a very tasty Ceasars salad followed by an awesome sausage pizza. Great flavor and wonderful crust. Service was very good and friendly. Also one of the better vodka Ceasars I have had in a while

Food and service was very good but the experience was spoiled by the unbelievable noise generated by patrons with no sense of decorum. The coffee was absolutely abysmal and made my brother visiting from Italy wince. An establishment like Avanti should have a high tech-coffee maker and top-notch quality coffee. Perhaps a visit to the Dimpflmeier bakery in Toronto would... More

We hadn't been for a few years and were shocked to see only 10 people on a Sunday evening (seats close to 100) My pasta was supposed to have a gorgonzola cheese sauce but the sauce resembled and tasted like salted orange cheese? Infact there was so much salt in my app (escargot) that my lips felt like I gargled... More

From antipasto platters to lovely soups, this is a wonderful lunch spot right downtown. Good service and friendly staff.

Avanti Trattoria is a favorite "go to" restaurant when I want good, solid Italian food. They offer a wide variety of menu items from traditional pasta dishes such as lasagna and chicken parmesan to creative daily specials. Good selections of salads and appetizers as well. Although I don't typically order it, they do have a broad selections of wine too.... More

This is our go to restaurant when we want to dine out. Food is always great tasting and fresh. Love, love, love the salads. I have had the pizza and many of the dinner specials.

My wife and I moved to Oshawa from downtown Toronto last year. Last week, I made the mistake of purchasing two pizzas ( take-out ) from your restaurant. A big mistake. We ordered the Quattro Formaggi and Metriciana. Pizza size was tiny for the price. Both items were flavourless and expensive. The sauce appeared to be non-existant. The dough was... More

This restaurant is very popular, because it is very very good. The seating is sometimes a little to close together. But I loved the stone fired pizza and fresh coffee!
