Great wine selection, meal starts with a warm baguette, olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. The cannelloni was substantial and tasted great. Pizza was excellent, wood fired, thin crust and plenty of toppings. Slight touch of... More

My husband and I went here for dinner on Saturday night at 6:30 pm. We had been here several times before. The food is always good here. However, tonight the service was not the greatest. The waitress did not smile, had to wait a while to order, she never cleared the table from our apps when the main meal arrived.... More

Amazing food, a hidden gem in the traffic of downtown Oshawa!! Penne A La Vodka was to die for! The mascarpone is delightful! Plus reasonable prices, service could have been a little more prompt but all in we will be back!

This place provides decent food but it can get loud in the restaurant. All the surfaces here are hard which do not absorb sound. When you are a Senior and are trying to celebrate a birthday with other seniors and all have problems with their hearing this may not be the place for you. The Birthday Boy likes their pasta...

I went to Avanti's with my niece and we had the Eggplant Parm and Lasagna. OMG...it was such a great portion and it was excellent !!! The Eggplant was just like my mother used to make. Before the meal you get a basket with bread and on the table you have your choice of original olive oil or spicy and... More

The meals were fine but the presentation was non-existent , You were only just finished one course when " Bam " the next course is sitting in front of you . We all felt rushed and in the way . We were in and out in less than an hour .

I have eaten here since it opened up many years ago and have never been disappointed. I still eat there a couple times a month for a date night. Always good food and service.

Ordered the vegetarian pizza. The toppings seem to be added after a cheese pizza is cooked as the vegetables were cold. Service was okay but again not great. We were waited on promptly when we arrived but not seen again until it was time for our bill. As another reviewer mentioned --it is not in a great location Seems to... More
