This place isnt bad but not great either. Their bread is good and without a doubt their signature food. You wouldnt think hot wing at a place like this would be good but they are probably some of the best in Peoria. I'll go back but wont get anything with that funky canned sauce

Avanti's maintains several restaurants in the Peoria area, all of which offer the same menu and service. It is know for its Italian bread which is baked on site, using a "secret recipe." The menu consists largely of pasta dishes, with some sandwiches and pizza. Beer and wine, and in at least one branch, a bar, are available. The portions are modest, but adequate, and always well prepared and served promptly. The prices are remarkably low. My wife and I usually dine for less than $20, including wine and tip. Avanti's does a large carry out business as well. a favorite is the Gondola, a sub sandwich made with their special bread. This is a Peoria landmark and should be a part of any trip to the "river city"

Avantis is one of our family favorites. Their bread is amazing. We like the lasagna and gondolas are big hit with the kids. We can carry out a family feast that feeds all 6 of us (3 teenagers) for less than $20.

The food is great and you can bring the whole family. The sub sandwich titled, "Gandola" is known thru out the Midwest. Family who come back to Peoria take their special bread home with them.

Avanti's has a focus on their bread that shows up as a side, as the dough for the pizza and buns for Gondolas. The good news: The bread is good. It is a family chain and significant thought has gone into locations so there is always one close by when you have the urge/need for a good lunch or dinner. They have daily specials through the week and two can eat for under $20 easily and that includes tip.

It is a family friendly place, but kids don't disturb your meal. Avanti's has become an institution in central Illinois.
