Pizza is good - service is ok

I ate at the restaurant at the start of June. The pizza that I ate was really good. I found the service to be a bit odd. The place is very busy. Everyone was having a good time on a Thursday night so that was good to see. Parking is available right next to the restaurant after 5 or on... read more

When in Oshawa, looking for Italian food, Avanti Trattoria is one of the best Italian restaurants I've visited in quite some time. The sweet scent of basil, peppers, sauces, and fresh breads greet you alongside staff when you walk in. Their menu offered more than a dozen pasta dishes, all tantalizing to read. I ordered the Chicken Parmesan with fresh... More

5:00pm reso for my wife and son. Not many people in the restaurant which was great for us as our little guy is two and high energy. This equalling noisy, but generally terrific in my eyes. We sat down to half eaten bread and what looked like Cheerios all over the floor under the table. Maybe a quick sweep with... More

I've had a lot of pasta in Canada, and I would have to say that this was probably the best I've had. The waitress was very attentive and helped us. The bread is really good! The food was brought out fast. It was a little noisy, but other than that it was pretty good!

The service was good, as was the food. We went for dinner and everyone enjoyed their meals. The food arrived quickly and we had a large party. Would recommend.

I go frequently to avant is with my friends and husband. The food is good and the ambiance is friendly and comfortable. Having been a frequent customer since its opening years ago, my only criticism is that the menu should be changed or updated. I'd like to see some new entrees.

This is a nice little Italian restaurant. Predictable stucco, pillars and pottery but totally comfortable. Service was great. Fast and efficient but still helpful and friendly. Lots of choices on the menu; pastas of course, salads and meat dishes. One of our party had steak and mashed potatoes. We all ordered something different and everyone was happy with their selection.... More

I have eaten here several times this month and enjoyed my meal each time. I recommend that you choose the special as each time they have outdone themselves with both flavour and presentation.
