This resturant is ok, I think they would be better to take a full leap into a contemporary Italian resturant than a sort of muh traditional cuisine. There really isn't anything very exciting about the atmosphere or the food. There food is sort of a bland boringness about it. The service is very strange, there is a attitude of superiority... More

I have celiac disease so I went to this restaurant and had the gluten free penne with chicken in a cream sauce with mushrooms and Spinach. It was really good, reasonable prices and service was quick. It took longer than expected to get the bill but that was because they were very busy. I'll definitely go back to eat there.

I ordered the shrimps in cream pasta. 5 shrimps on a fist size pile of pasta noodles for around $20. Says it all. Came with a bun sliced for two people to share the one bun.

I've been wanting to try Avanti for quite a while now. Finally had a chance to check it out. The restaurant itself is very nice. Has a somewhat small and cramped outdoor patio, but at least they have a patio. Was not impressed with the service. The waitress was obviously not happy to be there and it showed. But let's... More

great menu, something for everyone! extremely reasonable prices for such great food. It's a restaurant that looks expensive but isn't. Pizza was delicious and the wine they recommended was very good. Large portions, especially the deserts and lots of choices for the kids. The restaurant was very clean, the entire staff was very welcoming as soon as you entered.

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.

If you're looking for real authentic Italian food experience and great service, Avanti's is it! The menu is varied, and if you want to change up of your choice, not a problem. The Ginseng espresso - a must try! We will always come back.

We went with a group of friends for dinner. We were going to the theatre which is just across the road, so we thought we'd try Avanti's. 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
