I used to eat here when in college at Illinois State. Was visiting Peoria, so decided to re-live college days and went for dinner with some friends. Staff was cheerful and helpful. Really enjoyed the bruschetta as an appetizer. I went with a cheese and sausage pizza and enjoyed the flavor of the sauce. Good price, decent Italian food.

For the 4 of us with tip it was only $70 and that included an extra sandwich to take with us. The waitress tried to save me some money by suggesting... More

Avantis is a Peoria area favorite with great Italian cuisine. Perfect for families on a budget. They have takeout and allow for large parties. The portions make for some extra meal the next day too. Don't forget about their famous sweet bread.

My family loves to eat at Avanti's. Food is amazing -- from their sandwiches right down to the Italian dishes. Whenever we are asked to bring something to a family meal we are always asked to bring something from Avanti's

A local favorite!! Nothing like Avanti's bread...among other things! When family come to town it is a must have. Gondola,pizza bread, lasagna, fried ravioli, pizza...some of our family favorites! Once you try it you will definitely be going back. Affordable and great service. Put it on your must try list!!

Food is great (especially the bread), service is speedy and prices are reasonable. I had the Italian Sausage sandwich with the idea that I would only eat some of it. All of a sudden, I had eaten every delicious bite.

Just pulled into Peoria? Got kids and don't want "just pizza"? Have a few Gondolas (their version of a sub-sandwich) delivered to your hotel and enjoy. The best way I describe it to our hotel guests is "Nothing fancy, a great price, you'll want to have it again garenteed" They have a pretty good menu otherwise, but their Gondola is... More
