Nice Italian restaurant in the centre of Crieff

Good food, friendly and helpful staff, recommended. Nice pizza and pasta dishes and a good choice of excellent starters.

On holiday in Scotland, wanted somewhere nice to eat with my sister and our ancient mum to remember our late dad on his birthday. Avanti is welcoming with great atmosphere and incredibly good food. Will go back next year.

ok the garlic mushrooms should probably be avoided but everything else was delicious. We had a cannellini bean special with pork belly on bruschetta which was exceptional. The pizza and pasta were delicious. definitely worth a visit.

Me and my girlfriend have been twice now, and both times the food and service were very good. The restaurant itself is very nice as well. Overall we would definitely go back if we were back in Crieff, and if you're in the mood for very good Italian food at good prices then you should visit here.

This is a nice restaurant where they serve autentic italian food with a smile and quick too. We went there for lunch and decided to go back in the evening. A positive experience.

The staff were friendly and the restaurant has quite a nice feel but our food was awful. Our starter was poor, breaded and battered mushrooms, cheese and calamari. We hoped for better with the pizzas we ordered for our family of four, but the cheese was pouring off the pizzas and my husband had a sore stomach all evening afterwards.... More

although the staff couldn't be more attentive the meals both my partner and I had were spoiled as they were very salty, and sadly we couldn't finish our food, so wouldn't go back there.

Being March and outside of the normal tourist season we were initially the only customers in the restaurant which was a little concerning. But we should not have been worried - the food, all 3 courses of it, was delicious, piping hot and excellent value for money. Service of course was great and indeed friendly. We certainly recommend a vist... More

We both ended up choosing pizza, along with a salad side-dish. We were impressed with the pizza, the base was home-made and of the traditional Italian thin style, while the toppings were generous and well-balanced in flavour. All was freshly prepared, and the house red wine was also very nice. The meal was memorable and the service very good.

Looked good Clearly does do things well sometimes but we were not one of those times. Started with minestrone soup which was very nice so had high hopes of the lasagne but was bitterly disappointed - it was a burnt offering with chewy cheese and far too much over cooked pasta and very little meat. My husbands pizza was slightly... More
