We recently picked up Avantis for a couple families. We had their pizzas, gondolas, and some tortellini. It was all good. Their prices were also really good. Highly recommend the gondola if you haven't had one. Their sweet bread is really good. Great place for...More

Avantis is great tasting food at a great cost! The meat sauce is awesome- you can't go wrong with any of their pasta dishes covered in it! I'm not a fan of the Alfredo sauce though. The bread is made from scratch and absolutely delish...More

Just get a gondola. I love them. The sandwich sounds simple, but it is just heaven. The bread is the best. Eat the bread. I eat a lot of french onion soup here too. The melted cheese and croutons on top make it awesome. You...More

Service was fine, but this place ended up being a very basic no frills Italian eatery, that felt very "subway" like in its approach to the dishes. Granted most of us ordered custom pasta bowls, but that was it, it was just like they dumped...More

Very friendly waitress; helpful and attentive. Food was good with a very large menu. Parking is a little tight in the adjacent lot.

Avantis is one of my husband and I's favorite places to eat. I love their food, especially their bread and gondolas. And you can't beat their prices. Everything is very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend.
