Great service with very friendly staff! However my Chicken Milanese was so disappointing because all I could taste was garlic!!! Wrong choice for me especially when I could still taste garlic the day after. The hot beef baguette was very good.

The food we ate was beautifully cooked & delicious, but we waited an hour for it to arrive. Which as the restaurant wasn't particularly busy was too long. The service wasn't helped by the fact that we had 4 different waiters. The food order was late, the order was wrong and child's was almost forgotten. None of the waiting staff... More

We have really enjoyed a lovely proper thin based pizza as in Italy at Avanti before, so decided on a takeaway whilst self-catering. What a bad mistake, after wanting one all week - it was so undercooked that it was inedible, worse still we ordered one each. Both were consigned to the bin and we were left hungry! Quality control... More

Had a lovely meal here for a celebration great table view of courtyard and nice and warm great music too! So many nice options went for pizza, starter pasta, garlic ciabatta and chilli prawns. See the pics they all tasted delicious! I would give it 5 stars if the pricing was clear like others everywhere I eat - the vat... More

A very pleasant meal and overall a good experience. Even though the restaurant looked quite busy the waiting time to be served and for food to come out was very little. Very friendly staff who were happy to help us move table due to a breeze as the door was being left open by other customers. Only downside was slightly... More

Booked a table for 6 for Saturday night. We usually get to Kirkby mid afternoon and visit severl of the fabulous pubs for a few drinks before we eat. Always a pleasurable experience as all the pubs are very welcoming and lively places, whatever the time of year. We were greeted at Avanti and shown to our table by attentive... More

This was a real treat for us, after being on the road for 7 weeks and a lot of pub meals. The menu was surprisingly varied and our meal was very tasty indeed. Service was very good, the prices quite reasonable. A very nice evening over all and only 5 minutes walk from our B&B.
