    We went here last night for dinner met friends of ours who have never been , they had some drinks at the bar and when we got there we joined them . Bar service was great . Table service was not great our waitress had no personality she seemed like she didn't want to be there , the appetizers we had were good . My meal was lack luster . I got up during dinner to tell the hostess to let our waitress know it was my friends birthday, she said she would let her know . We ordered dessert and when it came she gave it to my husband and didn't say anything about the birthday until we got the bill and said , " was there a birthday ? The desert was on the house" I was surprised if she knew there was a birthday why not put a candle or let us sing HBD . She seriously could have cared less . Then at 9:45 another waiter came by and said we had to get up since a wedding party was coming in . Weird

    Our server was great and very pleasant. She was very efficient and checked on us the right amount of times. The food was absolutely delicious! I have never had such delicious, cooked correctly pasta in my life, in a restaurant! I love Al Dente Pasta and our Fettucine was just perfect! It was a very nice stress-free night out.

    Food was excellent. Little disappointed in our table location. Was asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and I replied that it was our anniversary. There was only one table by the window that would have been somewhat romantic, but someone was already seated there. No one acknowledged anything about our anniversary, actually had to tell the waitress and then she eliminated the cost of our dessert. If you don’t want to do anything about it, don’t ask when reserving.

    Everything was delicious! Surprisingly, one of our favorite items was the brussel sprouts appetizer. Three of us shared them and there was plenty. So so good! My shrimp pasta was excellent. The harvest salad was amazing. Highly recommend!

    We very much enjoyed our dining experience at Osteria Avanti. My husband's steak was perfectly seasoned and very tender. Same with my pork chop. It was quiet on a Sunday evening and very relaxing. The service was excellent. We would go back in a heartbeat.

    We were tucked in a table by the bar and had a very hard time getting service. Felt like we were an afterthought tucked in the corner. Given that it was Thanksgiving, expected a little more especially for the price point. Food was very good but the service was not up to par.

    Two meals that were not traditional holiday meals were considered very good. The traditional turkey dinner left much to be desired. The turkey was dry, the stuffing was bland and the vegetables were cold. Would not recommend. The atmosphere was cold - both temperature and ambience. Large room with limited decoration and few diners. Would not plan another holiday dinner there but expect it would be fine for other occasions.

    We enjoyed the experience. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. The ambience was good, but we were there on a night with almost no other guests, so the scene was peaceful and quiet. The inn itself was especially nice, and all the help were very friendly. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and the inn to others.
