I am a return visitor to Avanti's and absolutely love the Penne Con Pollo Chicken. Juicy Chicken breast, spinach, creamy sauce, roasted red peppers and mushrooms. Mouthwatering and large portions. Delicious every time. Their oven roasted pizza selections are awesome as well.

Pretty decent place to eat out in Oshawa. Staff is friendly and courteous. Just there for a latte. Ordered sweet red pepper soup and bruschetta along with it. They were ok.
