Got the pasta Primavera and it was excellent. Cheese soup was also great. Delivered to our room hot and fresh. Definitely will order from them again.

THIS PLACE HAS THE BEST BREAD EVER!!! We get the subs every time we come to town. We have even had the loaves of bread sent to us. The salads are great as well and everything comes with the great BREAD!

The food is good for the price, but it's not fantastic. The pasta is usually a good bet and the bread is always tasty.

Avantis is great tasting food at a great cost! The meat sauce is awesome- you can't go wrong with any of their pasta dishes covered in it! I'm not a fan of the Alfredo sauce though. The bread is made from scratch and absolutely delish...More
