    What a pleasant surprise! We had been on a roll of mediocre to below par restaurants in the Lancaster area as of late. Osteria Avanti did not disappoint. We were greeted warmly and seated. The hostess brought waters and bread to the table promptly. I would say that our only small complaint is that our waitperson was delayed a bit too long before coming to our table to introduce herself and to take cocktail orders. There was a large event going on at the restaurant so maybe she was having to do both things at once? Not sure, but once she did arrive she made sure to give us warm attentive service. The cocktails were well made and inventive. We were also impressed with the carefully chosen wines by the glass selection. My wife can not drink red wine and when it is just the two of us we have to get our wines by the glass. Osteria had some nice choices that were high quality and contained a variety of varietals. We both ordered the caesar salad. It was fine. The additional of the red pepper oil was a nice touch. The caesar dressing could have had more flavor though. It needed the obvious bite of garlic to shine. I had the bone-in pork chop with the orange and fig pesto along with the roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables. It was delicious. My wife had the halibut with risotto. The halibut was cooked perfectly with a nice sear. She really enjoyed the flavor of the risotto, however, she felt the fennel in it was a bit overwhelming with the size of pieces. One thing that we both were thrilled with in regard to our main courses was that the food was actually served hot in temperature. It is always such a disappointment when you go out for a nice meal and it arrives at the table lukewarm. Thanks! For dessert we shared the decadent and delicious dense chocolate torte. It was worth every single calorie. Bravo to the pastry chef! We both look forward to our next visit to try some other dishes. Thank you for a nice evening.

    We stayed at Kitchen Kettle Village Inn on a Monday night and absolutely all of the restaurants we were interested in the area were closed on Monday's. Looking on the web, I discovered Osteria Avanti and decided to try it since it was only around 15 minutes from the Inn. Turned out to be a great decision, food, ambience and service all very good. Had some different choices from the traditional Italian restaurants. My wife and I both enjoyed our dining experience and will return.

    A five star meal at a 5 star hotel. Wonder service and great Bar scene. Shrimp and scallop appetizer was delicious. For our mains we had the chicken and dry aged filet, both cooked to perfection and the request to swap a risotto for the potatoes …. No problem. If you’re in the area make a stop here

    Alessandro was very pleasant and knowledgeable! We were not rushed and had an excellent meal all the way through. The swordfish and risotto dish was so good that my husband got tears in his eyes because he wanted to share it with his mother who has passed. She was a foodie! The appetizers were well prepared and flavorful. The menu had a variety of wonderful choices and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. We look forward to visiting again.

    Disappointing. Was expecting a fine dining experience and the menu was blah and boring. fish was dry, were out of two types of pasta and no specials. Asked to be seated on the patio and there was no music or fountains to create background noise. Waitress was nice and attentive but seemed like she hadn't eaten anything on the menu. Nothing bad just not one thing to make it great.

    Caesar Salad was one of there best I've had, every piece of the romaine was dressed perfectly with plenty of shaved cheese. Mixed green salad my wife had was also very well done with a tasty balsamic dressing. We both had fish entree's, Red Drum and Swordfish were delicious and plentiful portions.

    I cannot stress enough how amazing the food was. My husband and I got a bunch of different seafood dishes and shared everything, so delicious. Especially the swordfish entrée. We sat outside which was lovely, and there was a wonderful musician playing. Our service was just a little slow, but I really don’t know how busy our server was because we could not see inside from where we were and there were only a few tables outside.
