It was like walking into a restaurant in Italy, with wonderful smells of fresh pasta sauces and strong coffee to greet you . Great atmosphere, charming staff who were happy to tweek the menu to accomodate my Vegetarian requests. Very tasty food and good portion sizes. Excellent value and would definitely recommend. Parking can mean a bit of a walk... More

We holiday in Crieff regularly and finally got round to dining here....was really looking forward to it but was a very disappointing experience. Starters were fine...a standard bruchetta you can't go much wrong with. If it wasn't for the 3 specials your choice was pizza or pasta...so I went for the steak fillet strips while hubby chose seabass... £16.50 for... More

We popped in here on a Tuesday night having booked a table earlier. Although it was very busy, the service was excellent and the food was delicious. Will certainly go there again if we are ever in the area.

Liked the food (which is the main thing) but got annoyed that servers kept the change as if tip is granted

We had dinner in this small Italian resturant last night. The food was lovely. The staff friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

We were visiting from Glasgow and decided to book here as part of my mum's birthday. The restaurant itself is quite small but nicely enough decorated. It was however pretty quiet for a Saturday night. I had the pate to start which was ok. For my main I had the meat raviolli which was really excellent. The chesse / tomato... More

My wife and I went along to Avanti on the strength of a recommendation. What a great decision that turned out to be! The food was fantastic - the best Italian restaurant we've ever visited, and we lived in Italy for three years. The staff were friendly, prices reasonable, atmosphere good and surroundings charming. We had a chat with the... More

Went to avanti on saturday 2 august to celebrate my birthday. Starters were good but my partner's spicy meatball with pasta were very salty dry and tasteless. He was offered another meal but declined. When we queried whether we were charged for that meal the waitress was very offhand and said"yes ok?" No it was not ok! This unfortunate experience... More

Came for a meal with my wife, kids and my parents and we all left pleasantly full. Food was very reasonably priced and there were half portions available for the kids. We all ate something different and all enjoyed it, which included my dad's "best seafood pasta he's ever had". The service was very prompt and friendly and the atmosphere... More
