“Excellent food, service and value!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

This is the second time we visited this restaurant. and were equally as pleased with the service, quality and quantity of food and the atmosphere. We shared starters of cheese garlic bread and potato skins. The pasta dishes as main courses were freshly cooked and very tasty averaging £6.50 per dish, I opted for the seafood pasta this time which was laden with prawns, fresh mussels etc. The bill (which included 2 glasses of wine) amounted to £15 per person and that included a tip! The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. One of the nice touches is that they offer a complimentary limoncello/amaretto and mints at the end of the meal.

“Fabulous food, beautiful restaurant!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Just been for tea at Avanti and it was so tasty. If your looking for an intimate little restaurant with good food and good service then this is worth a visit. I went with a friend and we both had a lovely meal. Such a cosy restaurant, great for a catch up with the girls, a family meal or an intimate dinner for two. You won't be disappointed.
