Avanti's is an American Italian place - I don't think there was an entree over $10 on the menu. Bruchetta was sweet, salad and dinner were tasty but not large - which was a good thing. Too many restaurants give too large portions. The taste...More

The food is good for the price, but it's not fantastic. The pasta is usually a good bet and the bread is always tasty.

We recently picked up Avantis for a couple families. We had their pizzas, gondolas, and some tortellini. It was all good. Their prices were also really good. Highly recommend the gondola if you haven't had one. Their sweet bread is really good. Great place for...More

Avantis is great tasting food at a great cost! The meat sauce is awesome- you can't go wrong with any of their pasta dishes covered in it! I'm not a fan of the Alfredo sauce though. The bread is made from scratch and absolutely delish...More

Just get a gondola. I love them. The sandwich sounds simple, but it is just heaven. The bread is the best. Eat the bread. I eat a lot of french onion soup here too. The melted cheese and croutons on top make it awesome. You...More

The restaurant is a bit worn, but what can you expect when it is in the heart of a university. The service and food were just okay. Probably better for carry out.

Thank you! Are there any recommendations you have to improve our quality to meet your expectations?

Service was fine, but this place ended up being a very basic no frills Italian eatery, that felt very "subway" like in its approach to the dishes. Granted most of us ordered custom pasta bowls, but that was it, it was just like they dumped...More

Very friendly waitress; helpful and attentive. Food was good with a very large menu. Parking is a little tight in the adjacent lot.
