Booked a table for 6 for Saturday night. We usually get to Kirkby mid afternoon and visit severl of the fabulous pubs for a few drinks before we eat. Always a pleasurable experience as all the pubs are very welcoming and lively places, whatever the time of year. We were greeted at Avanti and shown to our table by attentive... More

This was a real treat for us, after being on the road for 7 weeks and a lot of pub meals. The menu was surprisingly varied and our meal was very tasty indeed. Service was very good, the prices quite reasonable. A very nice evening over all and only 5 minutes walk from our B&B.

We arrived 5 minutes before last food orders and the staff were still very friendly and welcoming. The pizza was delicious and the restaurant had a lovely, homely atmosphere. Excellent value for money and highly recommended! Thank you.

We haven't eaten at Avanti many times before and were just passing by and popped in for a quick lunch which turned out to be very good. The food previously has been good and the service and atmosphere very pleasant, today was no different. Avanti were only serving pizzas today due to the bank holiday but the choice was still...

We booked here relatively late as we had not early planned our New Years Eve celebration. I had heard that the restaurant had recently changed owners and there had been some comment about its usual high standard having slipped a bit. This turned out to be not true at all. The evening was Venetian Mask themed but for those unaware... More

Had a excellent meal here - had ravioli for starters was really good - followed by an excellent pasta dish each - and then a really good dessert - completed with a really good bottle of red wine. Would definitely recommend this place.

Having always enjoyed our previous visits to Avanti, we had dinner there in March soon after the new owners took over and were very disappointed. We decided to leave our next visit for atleast 6 months and on hearing from other local people that all was now well, we decided to try again over the Christmas period. Really pleased to... More

For a treat we decided to go to Avanti for a family meal. I can't fault it. Food was lovely - we had started and pizzas followed by desserts. The staff were helpful and friendly and the atmosphere was great - as the evening went on it seemed a few people came in just for drinks which really helped make... More
