We ordered the special, which was cod wrapped in parma ham on a bed of crushed potatoes, etc. It was absolutely beautiful - so... More

We went as a couple to Avanti and have to say there were a few things that were a bit off putting. Firstly the waitress had to be reminded of our wine order. Then when our mains came the risotto was very gritty. Obviously the spinach hadn't been cleaned properly. Also we were subjected to the constant shouting of other... More

Ok we were able to get a last minute table. Service was slow because we were told the bar gad a cocktail evening and that took precedence!! Over the restaurant.

Restaurant is in a good central local in Kirkby Lonsdale. We all had a pizza which was really good. Place wasn't too busy but still created a nice ambience and atmosphere

As regular visitors to Kirkby Lonsdale, a meal at Avanti is compulsory. Pride themselves on having good wines for less than £20. Great range of food and great staff.

Glad we booked a couple of weeks before . The place was really busy , with a good vibe. The food was excellent in quality, taste and presentation. The staff were attentive without being obtrusive. Would certainly recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Booked for lunch on Saturday 12th with family visiting from London. Although we booked well in advance we sadly had to wait for our meal. They did inform us that there was a delay in the kitchen and offer apologies. When meals arrived unfortunately they did not live up to expectations. Chicken Melanaise was served on a bed of relatively... More
