Went with 9 friends who all enjoyed our 2 course meal. 3 courses if you count the garlic bread put on the table whilst waiting for our meal. Great value and service.

Always welcoming and nice busy atmosphere. Pre-starter garlic bread on the house. Lots of choice far more than pizza and pasta.

Great service but really poor food. Didn't enjoy the food one little bit. Was recommended there by someone but wouldn't go back

It's been more than a year since my last visit due entirely to this being a holiday destination and 300 miles is a tad too far to travel for an excellent wholesome Italian cuisine. The special was on even on a Friday night that basically meant you get a free starter and pay varying prices for you main with pud... More

Whilst staying nearby we stumbled across this place midweek, saw there was some life in there so gave it a try. Got a table no problem, friendly and attentive staff and overall a nice atmosphere though perhaps a little squeezy between the tables. Good traditional Italian food, plentiful, nicely cooked and presented - it's not gourmet standard but we found... More

This is a lovely restaurant and I have no doubt that some of the food is excellent, as per other reviews. We had a mixed experience, however: my wife's seafood risotto seemed not to be cooked using ingredients as fresh as they might have been. My duck, however, was very competently cooked and the dessert, an Italian layered sweet with... More

Went here for our Tuesday meal which we do every week and after having some very poor meals and service the last couple of week, we were very happy to have visited Avanti. Been before so thought we'd try other places but it's true when people say stick to what you know - portions sizes were excellent, customer service was... More

Wasn't a problem. Very laid back staff, very friendly, unpretentious, attentive. We were told a table would be available in five minutes, and it was. Whilst we waited we had a beer and the pump went, the lady serving us didn't flap around or tut, just smiled and carried on. Five minutes later shown to table with beer. Simple menu,... More
