We quite enjoy our visits to Avanti's. We've gone as a family as well as for a quiet couples' night out. Food is delicious with good vegetarian options. Atmosphere is nice, serving staff is friendly. Prices are on the slightly higher end but nothing too unreasonable.

Visited as a family with two kids aged 22 and 10. Service was prompt and food was delicious. My 10 yr old son enjoyed the pizza cooked in the wood fired oven. Atmosphere is casual and family friendly. I had the veal and it was delicious. My daughter had pasta a fruit de mer which was very good as well.... More

We were looking for a meal following a long day at a meet and we were very pleased with Avanti. Unfortunately, we ran in to a huge theater crowd and at 6:30 on Saturday evening wee faced with a 45 minute wait. Good fortune came our way in three seats at the bar and a willingness to seat and serve... More

First they would not reserve, which unfortunattely happens more and more everywhere. We were able to get seated at 8h30 / 9h00. Service was ok a bit slow though (since we were the only people still ordering food in the restaurant). My friends enjoyed the pizza, I did not. And my pastas were really not well seassoned for an italian... More

Good Italian food for lunch or dinner. We enjoyed a starter of calamari and mains of veal parmagiana and eggplant parmagiana. Pasta was cooked al dente and spices were great in the sauces.

Avanti is a great Italuan restaurant on Kung St just at Simcoe in Oshawa. I visited twice on this trip and both times I was impressed. It is like an old fire hall and immediately one feels welcomed, warm. The reception is quick but very friendly. It is a Tuesday evening and the restaurant is full which says a lot... More
