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

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
