Very cozy, warm and friendly restaurant. We had the lamb chop special and the snapper. For dessert cheese cake, espresso and cappuccino. Wine list good. We selected the Villa Antinori and an Oyster Bay SB. Service and food presentation were superb.

My wife and I eat out all over the country. A lot. Cafe Avanti is a "find". Great classic Italian with large portions and friendly service. The caprese and antipasta rustico were very good and almost enough to serve as a meal. In fact after...More

This was a dinner for nearly 100 people and I was extremely impressed with the presentation, food quality and staff for this event. The food was outstanding and feeding that many people at one time usually brings with it several issues such as food delay,...More
