The family and I decided to go out for dinner last night and being as it was a Wednesday we're trying to keep the cost low. We had been to Avanti a few times before and always had great food at a reasonable price. Don't be fooled by my four star rating that is overall. By no means is this... More

We have lived in Oshawa for two years and have been by Avanti many times--but never at meal time. Friday night we were downtown for Kars on King and decided to try it.

This place came recommended so I thought I'd try it. Had a pasta dish and was quite underwhelmed. The service was good though. Disappointed experience, probably won't go back.

Had lunch with a group of friends. Great food and drinks and always excellent service. You have to order their Caesar Salad and Penne Con Pollo- fabulously delicious and mouth watering. Don't forget to get yourself a tasty Sangria or glass of their delicious house red. Will definitely be back again soon. Cheers!

Fantastic restaurant. Service is outstanding. Pizza is awesome, made in wood-burning oven. Pasta carbonara is amazing. You won't regret eating here.
