My family and I always go here when we are visiting other family in East Peoria. I love the atmosphere when I arrive here. The waitresses are always so cheerful and always have a smile on their face. The food is excellent. I normally always...More

I ate my first gondola over 40 years ago. It's a simple sandwich and they'll let you doctor it up but I like them just the way they come. It's got to be the bread. Slightly sweet. Avantis has a good menu with lots of...More

Nothing unique to this restaurant. It's a step and a half above fast food, but not much more. It's a relatively middle of the road experience, but it was clean, fast, and the staff was great. If you know what to expect, then it's a...More

Kids love this place and is a tradition for us prior to athletic tournaments. Great bread. Can customize your pasta with sauces, veggies, meats etc. marinara sauce bit disappointing.

If you like Italian, try someplace else. At least with mine, it was formula food from an old and tired restaurant. The salad had little in it other than lettuce and not enough dressing. The meal was rather tasteless and I couldn't finish it.

I took my mom, daughter, & grand-daughter on a very busy Sunday. We were seated immediately, served very quickly, and the server made several stops to make sure all was ok. I had a veggie pizza (one of the best I've eaten anywhere), my fussy...More

Most people know of Avanti's in Peoria, so I was expecting something better. The price was reasonable for the amount of food you get - but the quality wasn't as high as I thought it would be.

All you can eat spaghetti plus many other menu choices. The food was not top notch Italian but it was good. Lighting was good so you didn't have to strain to read the menu. The place was clean enough but winter weather and heavy coats...More
