“Calabrese Sandwich”
Review of Avanti Cafe

Avanti is a little gem of an Italian cafe. My personal favorite is the calabrese sandwich, a deep fried pork cutlet with cheese, grilled panini style. Order a small side of red sauce for dipping. Yum. They have a wide variety of Italian cold cut style sandwiches that are outstanding. The prosciutto is amazing.

This place reminded me of the bars back in Italy you get a great cup of Espresso to go with a Panini or a breakfast frittata I recommend to stop here for a true Italian Espresso or latte macchiato not Starbucks. Tony the owner was great and very hospitable. My family and I were traveling from Cleveland to see a concert

Cool fall evening we could walk here from the Country Inn and Suites and was recommended by the desk clerk. Really good fried perch! Italian Beef was right on and very tasty. Desserts looked amazing but too full.

This family owned and run restaurant will be one of your places to go for just good Italian food. Very casual and almost a fast food restaurant but, a place to try.

I was in Mt. Prospect 2 weeks ago, and a co-worker took me to Avanti Café. OMG!!!The pizza was wonderful! While at the register I see this desert that they call "A Piece of Heaven", and boy was it ever! It is also known as cheese stick, ( I found that out when I went back in the evening, for more!). Absolutely divine perfection!!
The staff was very friendly and it is family owned and operated. I met an uncle, one of the twin girls, and the highlight of my day(next to the desert) was speaking with and meeting ANTONIO! What a pleasant, endearing, charming young man! He has a Marketing future. What a pleasure!
Antonio , can we work on shipping me some Pieces of Heaven? lol

I hope business is going well and that you are not working too hard!
