The food was good although they could have given a little more on the plate. The service was ok, nothing to write home about. The decor is pleasant and the cost is a little high for me.

Had a wonderful Italian late dinner at Avanti. Stopped Oshawa on our drive down to Mississauga. Not too far from 401. Service was fast & friendly. I had the special of the day and it was fabulous. Had expressos after dinner and they came quickly while they were still hot. No complaints. Overall it was good and would go back

Had a wonderful dinner at Avanti Trattoria. It's a tad pricey but it's worth every penny. Service is good, staff are friendly and helpful, food is beautifully presented and I believe they make their own pasta from scratch. It's small but that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned. Cozy and intimate.

Fine Italian food and awesome service. Prices aren't too bad either. Only set back is that they don't take reservations.

Delicious Italian food at an affordable price. Nice old Italian atmosphere. The portions are huge.if you are going on a night when there is an event nearby you may want to go early as it really gets busy

Fairly priced for excellent food, service, and ambience. Parking downtown can often be a disaster, but there is some parking at the restaurant. One of my favourite restaurants for celebrations or girls nights.

We came for company dinner. Food was above average. Place was hopping and full of trendy business young people. We were taking our time so when a group came in with no where to sit the manager came asked us if we mind going to the bar for a night cap on them so the group could sit. Politely and... More

Stopped in Last Night after viewing all the Rat Rods on display down the street and enjoyed Coffees and Desserts. Can't beat their Cappuccino's!! Also the Carrot Cake is TOTALLY worth the calories ;} Great Place for gatherings!!

The server seemed rather inattentive on a Friday afternoon following the lunch rush. Only three tables in her section and she'd vanish for periods of time leaving us to wait to order more drinks. The free basket of fresh Calabrese bread hit the spot, especially when dipped in the chili oil. Tow of us ordered pizzas and both we undercooked.... More
