One of my Fav Italian Restaurants in Oshawa

We have visited Avanti's several times and keep going back. We love their pizza's and grilled calamari so much that we rarely venture from them when ordering, but I have had some of their salads and pastas. We have tried most of the pizzas (and there are many) and each are as delicious as the next... read more

I think the place is better than "average" but not "very good" and they have no rating for this. This was a very busy place before a concert at the G.M. center close by, but I was lucky to get in for dinner. The waitress quickly came to us and helped with the wine list,.... very good she was.

We have visited Avanti Trattoria on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is casual and the ambience is lovely. The staff are warm and friendly and very knowledgeable regarding the great selection on the menu. We usually start with the pan fried calamari which is very tender and delicious. Then we share a Dolce e Agro salad,... More

Avanti is a very nice Italian restaurant with very good service, food and prices. We have been several times and have been very happy with our experience every time. It is not fine dining but it is very good and it's great to have such a nice place to go locally. Every time we go there are a good number... More

The friendliness, the atmosphere are so welcoming when you arrive. This is not your 'high-end' restaurant although you would not know it from the food. Portions, quality and service all way above average. It's a regular stop for us every couple of months. It's the one place that I have referred a few people to and have never had to... More

Had a great dinner here with my husband. Loved the stemless wine glasses so much that I went out and bought some the next day. The server was helpful and fast. Attentive, but did not hover. Great Italian food. Can't wait to go back!

Love this place, great ambiance, amazing food, great menu selections and good service, only negative is the location and parking an issue. Haven't been for a long time, overdue for a visit.
