We dined on a wednesday night
We dined on a wednesday night and conditions were quiet-perfect. Drinks and main course were fine. I ordered the salad which was a bigger bite than the main course and took away from the wonderful beef cheeks (in other words I was full). The only negative was slightly old (wilted) lettice and uneven seasoning of the salad. Overall a great and ubique place to dine-even somewhat romantic!

Courteous service, nice atmosphere.
Medium rare filet mignon cook to the right texture. Spaghetti with shrimp presented funny like gift wrapped on the plate but good taste. Even the restaurant is located within a AAA 4 diamond hotel, food price is affordable.
Waiters are courteous and honest. I started with a dinner package that come with my hotel room reservation. They explained what we can order with the dinner package. At the end of the dinner, they told us our drink, food, tax and even gratuity had been paid with the dinner package.
As I am living 6 hours away, I probably will make my best effort to return if I will travel around the area again, or recommend my friends to come here if they will travel to the surrounding area.

Much nicer than expected!
We are local & expected typical Lancaster food and ambiance and were pleasantly surprised by a quiet (once the bar cleared out) and candlelight type ambiance. We did ask the waiter if we could turn the TV off that was above our table, and he happily obliged. My husband, who is picky about his steak, said his filet was truly top-notch, and I learned they would make the spaghetti any way - I chose vegetarian and it was fine - a little dry sauce-wise and heavy on peppers, skimpy on broccoli, but the pasta itself cooked perfectly and a good meal. Any deficit was outweighed by the presentation of the pasta - wrapped up like a present with a bow!! The wedge salad was to die for - I have been craving it since. We will definitely return.

This restaurant was quite nice for a mid week evening out. Has a varied and unique but limited menu. Be sure to pre order the arancini because they ran out very early!

One of the better local options
If dining outside of the city of Lancaster, this is one of the better local options. Food is good, although slightly over seasoned and the menu, although limited, has enough variety. A lot of effort to appeal to a more sophisticated diner. Service on this particular evening was slow due to a large table in their "event" dining room.

Perfect Sunday night dinner!
Wow what a great way to end our weekend by dinning in Osteria Avanti!!! After we were sat at a cozy, copper, corner table, we greeted by Anthony who took excellent care of us through out the night. Our meals consisted of Sicilian Swordfish with house made vegetable risotto and a Penne pasta with beef cheek ragu and dark chocolate that was to die for! Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and the wine list and helped direct us to a luscious Italian wine that paired perfect with our entrees. Can't wait to return. Thank you Avanti.
