Avanti, a Valley tradition since 1974. . . Dramatic, crisp black and white interiors, candlelight and a quiet atmosphere. Vegetarians and Seafood lovers will be awed by the selections of homemade pasta from deliciously light Gnocchi Alfredo, Eggplant and Meat Lasagna, to seasonal hand crafted Ravioli. Fresh Fish and seafood dishes vary- from a Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail to an Italian crafted Cioppino. Avanti has also garnered numerous awards and accolades for our Ossobucco, said to be the best in town as well as robust steaks and chops (lamb and pork).Enjoy dessert and Cappuccino in the piano bar sweets that are carefully guarded family recipes include, Tiramisu, Cannoli, Creme Brulee with a crunchy burnt sugar crust but if your passionate about chocolate the chocolate mousse is infused with rum and whipped so fluffy and light you'll swear it's heaven sent!

    We had a great 60th birthday celebration for our dear friend Luigi and it could not have come out better! Angelo spent time with us at our table and he and Luigi were able to speak in their native Italian tongue which thrilled everyone! Our server Sergio was over the top and the food was equally as delicious. Highly recommend and we will be back.!

    Staff was attentive and pleasant. Pasta is made on site which was excellent. I had the surf and turf special more food than I could eat had to take home. Wife got the fish special it was done to perfection nothing left over on her plate and we had their Tiramisu which was made in restaurant again it was perfection. We highly recommend you visit the restaurant

    Sunday night dining, restaurant not half full which was great because it was so easy to talk with our friends without background noise to overcome. Service was very good, food very good, thank you to the servers...we had a very nice evening....
