In New England, you always expect excellent seafood. Avanti's did not disappoint. My husband and I both had the scallops and they were excellent. Shared a bottle of wine and was able to take the left-overs back to out hotel. Inexpensive, quick and delicious as we arrived in town. Great find!

We didn't try the pizza but ordered a meatball sub and a pepperoni sub and both were delicious. Reasonably priced and super friendly staff.

Food is good and the portions are very generous. Staff seems a little over worked, but available. I ordered a hot grinder and chose a small. I'm a big guy but it was still more than enough.

Had never had cod parmigiana before ... it was AMAZING - along with their Italian lemon cake! Their other menu options look just as yummy!

I stayed at a hotel nearby so found this little gem. I remembered it from long ago with a different owner. I had excellent salad and pasta, a decent glass of wine and great service. The owner stopped by to say hello and told me a bit about the history of the place. I really enjoyed it and will make... More

I used to go to this place regularly. Last few times I went I had stomach problems all day long. I thought it may have been just one time but there seems to be an issue here. The pizza has no flavor and they skimp on the cheese. This place is no longer a viable option for pizza in Mystic.... More

Stopped for the first time to get pizza and grinders for take out; have driven by the restaurant regularly but had never stopped- pleasant surprise. The food was good, service excellent and I had an opportunity to have a beer at the bar while waiting for my order. Will plan to go back shortly and 'eat-in'

While attending the famous Art Festival in Mystic, we needed to get away from the bus crowds. We went only 4-5 blocks from the festival area and had a great relaxing meal. Fast service and great choices of food. Yummy too!

Stopped in for a couple of hot grinders an hour before posted closing time. There were still several other patrons in the restaurant getting ready to leave. Stood at hostess counter for while till surly hostess came over and basically stood in front of us without saying anything. My wife said we just wanted a couple of grinders, to which... More

The inside is surprisingly small, dark, and dated, but the food is good and the service was very friendly, if a little slow, on this visit in August of 2015. I have never had anything but the pizza here although they have many other things on their menu. The pizza is very good, with lots of creative options for toppings.... More
