Love the bread here! Great sandwiches! I've had the pasta but that's not what keeps us coming back. I love it when our schools decide to sell sandwiches for fund raising! I love seeing restaurants that are willing to help a community even if it's not their own! That Rocks!

Great food for over 30 years. I had to get my Avanti's bread to take back to Arizona. I always take at least 5 loafs home when I am back in EP

I have been eating at Avanti s for at least 30 years. It is always clean. Good friendly service. ADA FRIENDLY! Plenty of parking. Their gondola is what they are famous for. They are an inexpensive place to eat and have a special every day. They have booths as well as tables. Thy the double meat gondola deluxe. About $10... More

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!!
