This Italian dinner was delicious AND affordable. We were in & out in under an hour on a Saturday night!

I got a lunch in Avanti and was good but nothing special. Despite of a traditional US lunch like Subway the lunch was well prepared and good option for a day to day lunch.

This is a local spot for most in the area. Known for their gondolas and spaghetti. If you are in the area and are hungry this will appease the entire family.
