The owner has opened a new Avanti called "Avanti Italian Bistro". This place was more casual, it didn't have tablecloths versus the new place, the menus are also different. I guess the rising rents on Lake Avenue are forcing out quite a few of the long time restaurants on the street.

Food was good. My husband and I shared a large salad and a pizza and were satisfied. Service was a bit slower than we would have liked but since it was a pleasant environment and there were lots of customers, we were okay with it. They seemed comfortable with our bringing our 11-month old grandson who is quite active.

We happened upon this place mostly because it seemed to be the only place open later in the evening except for a coffee shop. The atmosphere was lovely, the service was excellent. I ordered the De Mare, my husband ordered the Farfalle Bowtie Pasta, and our son ordered a pizza. The bread rolls that were served were a delicious surprise, and they had a nice selection of wines to accompany the meal. All three of us left saying that Avante Café was a great find!

We consider Avanti Cafe our go-to place for excellent wood fired pizza and amazing salads. Their salad dressings are simply wonderful. Prices are reasonable and serving size is abundant.
