This is a nice Italian restaurant and the service is good from the friendly waitresses. We had not booked, but were found a table for our mid-week evening visit. Both of us ordered the Chicken Milanese. It was described as with garlic and spicy breadcrumbs. Unfortunately for me the dish contained much too much garlic and this with the spice... More

My wife and I had dinner at Avanti's. First thing to say is that it is advisable to book! Clearly very popular. Menu is not extensive but covers most options. My wife had Tournedos Rossini; I went for the Tuscan Fish Stew. We were both very happy. The wine list is good in my opinion and reasonably priced. Although the... More

Visited as a couple and had a sharing antipasti to start which was lovely. Both pasta dishes were also great. Lovely atmosphere and very attentive staff. Definitely a spot to visit for a bite to eat if you prefer something different from the classic pub food around Kirby.

The Avanti is a great place to visit for breakfast lunch or dinner , as we have found over the years visiting Kirby Lonsdale. Set back off the high street it's modern tasteful interior with secluded garden area makes you feel relaxed. Staff are always friendly and the quality italian food is very good

We eat without a reservation. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had garlic ciabattas and a range of different pizzas all of which were excellent. The restaurant decor is also very good. Highly recommended.

This place had been recommended by friends for a birthday meal so the two of us went. They were extremely helpful as our train was late and held the table for us. I love the fresh décor and how bright the area is. Food was delicious and well cooked. We had the swordfish and the mixed seafood pasta for mains.... More

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.

Thank pduck1
