Dont be put off by the unassuming exterior this is a great little restaurant. Visiting for the first we were welcomed like old friends. We dropped in without booking prior to going to the cinema yet Nothing was too much trouble and when we said one of us needed gluten free we were told, "No problem." Wide choice of main and side dishes, lovely sweets. The owner is on hand to accommodate every need and chase up the waiters to ensure service is prompt. The locals enjoy their visits and we were treated to a complimentary limoncello along with a group of regular customers. If we are ever back in the area we will return

We go to Avanti whenever we have something to celebrate, such as a birthday, and sometimes just when we want a good, tasty, no-nonsense, good value meal. It never fails. And the welcome is always so warm and friendly. Most recently we had to meet a friend for dinner, and he too loved it. We'll keep going back, because if something is so close to perfect why should we change?

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor we made a reservation to meet friends for dinner. We weren't to be disappointed. We had a table of four on a busy Saturday evening. Food was really great and service was friendly and efficient.

The only minor niggle was the volume of the music - too loud to hear each other some of the time, but this seemed to be down to the enthusiasm of the manager.

Recommend that you make a reservation if you don't want to be disappointed. We'll certainly return. Good VFM, too. Around £100 for 4, 3 course inc drinks.

Great!
