Never miss a trip to Peoria without eating at Avanti's. Many locations in Peoria. Great Italian food, great salads and best bread in Peoria. Something for every age. Great for couples, family or parties. Remember to take a loaf of bread home!!

If we hadn't had to wait to be seated due to insufficient staffing I would have given this restaurant 5 stars. The servers were excellent. We never had to ask for a drink refill. The food was hot when it arrived at our table and everyone really enjoyed their meal. I would recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

Horrible service! It's Wednesday and my food took over an hour and half to get to my house. This is the 3rd time in a row that it either took 45 minutes longer than I was told or my food was wrong when it got here. When my food has been wrong it took an hour to get here then... More

Avanti has a bread that is baked on site and different than any other in town. It is a bit sweet and has a wonderful consistency. Their sub sandwiches are reasonably priced and make a good meal. I also enjoy their pizza sub that is made with tasty meatballs, marinara sauce and cheese. The family spaghetti meal is a great... More

Peoria staple that landed flat. The gondola sandwich was 80% bread. Sauces for pasta were water down

I have visited just about all of the Peoria area Avanit's locations and though each one is designed differently, they are all consistently clean, friendly, fast and the food is always very fresh! The East Peoria location is closest to my home, so I generally frequent their carry-out more often then dining in. Their Family Meal Deal is awesome for... More
