Restaurant is located in a small strip mall across the street from John Jay high school. Parking is ample and free. They were able to accommodate our group of ten on a Sat night (9/29) with only a short notice. Be careful or you'll miss it the first time you drive by.
Service is fantastic and the food is outstanding. You'll love their breads and make sure you try one of their clam appetizers. We had two different types of clams at our table and both were great There is also a nice wine list.
Prices are moderate and the selection of entres will have something for everyone. My favorite is one of the many veal dishes ($18) which includes a nice salad. The spagetti and meatballs are also very tasty. Portions are large but not oversized. Everyone in our group had something different and all were delicious. Deserts are home made and also very good. Top it off with a specialty Italian coffee or drink from the full service bar.
Bottom line is that a family members told us we would love this place... They were so right !!! We will make sure we go to Avanti's again the next time were in town. Once you try it you'll feel the same.
