Try Avanti for great sandwiches, pastas and pizza. The owner is usually on site and strives for excellence in service and quality food. It's fast food that is top notch with fresh ingredients. Beer and wine service available.

Great Italian cafe. Carry out or dine in or outside. Large selection of sandwiches, great pasta and salad. So much to pick from! Meatball sandwiches are so good! And arancini are good too. And don't forget to save room for dessert - gelato!
