“Yuck”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Cheese overload. When you picked up the pizza all the cheese slid off...undercooked to say the least.. I ordered Manicotti and it was nothing but an excessive amount of mozarrella cheese. The salad is just plain lettuce.. nothing else. The server was not friendly.. small place.. would not return

“Good Family Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2011

Avanti's is like a favorite pair of jeans, familiar and comfortable. They are reliable with standard "family fare" - burgers, sandwiches, veal parm, etc. At Avanti's you know what you'll get and that it'll be good. It isn't a 4-star restaurant (the salad is lackluster and the steamed mixed vegetable side was frozen vegetables with lots of tough broccoli stems) and it doesn't try to be. That said, we LOVE their fish and chips, baked stuffed cod and sweet potato fries.

Also, service is friendly and efficient.

Nice place for a casual lunch or dinner. Full of locals too, if that's important to you.

“good for quick dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2011

We stayed across the street at the Taber Inne and this was great for a quick dinner after checking in. The clam chowder was excellent. The chicken caesar salad was good. It's hard to mess up, but I have been places that have messed it up (ususally by not tossing it). We also had burgers that were thick and juicy.
