You can always count on fresh delicious made to order pizza, wonderful ravioli and really good sandwiches for lunch with lovely salads on the side. Their salads are very fresh and tasty too. You will always get a very large portion and the consistency is always there so count on an excellent lunch every time!! The staff are very professional... More

Went here with my family to celebrate a birthday. We got seated right away and our server was very pleasant. The atmosphere is light and the place looks like a casual Italian restaurant. I ordered the grilled calamari as an appetizer. It was undercooked, in my opinion, which made it a little too chewy. The warm bread arrived next which... More

Avanti's is a gem to have in central Oshawa. Walking distance from all downtown venue's. Great pasta dishes in a warm relaxing (Italian) atmosphere. Can't praise just one dish. Every one I've tried has been outstanding. It's my wife's and mine , go to restaurant.

We decided to go out for pizza and while there are other places in Whitby, we choose to drive a few miles (kilometers lol) because we always get consistently great pizza and service. It is a good thing we got there around 5:30 and only had to wait barely a minute. However, it was a Friday evening and the Oshawa... More

We love the crusty warm bread that is served when you arrive. Their Caesar salad is big enough for two to share, with lots of shaved Parmesan. My husband tried the penne with sausage, which he regretted. The veal Parmesan, is a better choice, in our opinion. I also deviated from my usual spaghettini carbonara, and tried a meat cannelloni...

What a great little find. ..true tastes of Italian cuisine and reasonably priced good wine. We were thrilled to enjoy a very tasty dinner of wood fired pizza and properly cooked pasta. Salad was fresh as was the antipasto ! Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and wait staff were friendly and good service. Well worth the price!

We were on a road trip and decided to stop in Oshawa for dinner. We chose Avanti after I researched restaurants online and we were not disappointed! The food was amazing and the service was 10/10. The menu is well priced and there's a great selection, we had pasta, pizza and chicken parm! We will be back for sure.

Enjoyed an amazing dinner here last night, and the food was delicious! Not to mention the service was very good for how busy the place was. Although it was busy when we arrived we were seated right away. I did need a few modifications due to allergies but there seemed to be no problems with that. Waitress was very attentive... More

We arrived when it was pretty crowded due to a show across the street. We waited for 15 minutes after being seated to before anyone acknowledged our presence. The waitress, while friendly, was a bit dismissive of our wait saying, "hey, we all forget sometimes!" Overall, it was a good experience.
