The pizza bread is to die for. This restaurant is the epitome of quality comfort food. I can't wait to go again.

The bread used to be the only good thing about this place, considering it has a taste range that could only satisfy a teething baby or a person who lived their whole life without driving out of McLean county! Now the bread is soft and airy full of holes, it's hard to put butter on without it tearing! I ordered a couple of loves and before I got out the door I could tell something was wrong, because I could feel the weight of the bag was LESS than it used to be! WAY TO GO avanti's, KILLING THE GOOSE THAT LAID THE GOLDEN EGGS.

LOVE the Gondolas! Tortillini is awesome. In all these years, they haven't moved - I keep thinking they need to expand! We grab Gondolas every time we're in town! Great place for the whole family. Expand to Minnesota!

Pros: Great food, great atmosphere, great prices

Cons: They're only in Illinois!

I love their Gondolas. I have to say I have tried other menu items and was not impressed. The sauce has a funny bland taste. Do yourself a favor and stick with their Gondolas.

I have lived in Bloomington/Normal for more than 38 years and still love Avanti's food whether it is delivered to my home, picked up or eating in the restaurant. I would recommend Avanti's to anyone who enjoys Italian food at a reasonable price.

Everyone in Bloomington/Normal love this restaurant. So when we moved..we gave it a try. It was ok..my daughters fell in love with the ranch dip for the bread. I think my older daughter ate it everyday while going to ISU.

My favorite thing about Avanti's is the bread. I could seriously just order a soda and munch down the bread if they let me. Maybe I'll try that next time.

The pizza here is really yummy too, as is the pasta. Overall I have been very impressed with the service as well!

Avanti's has excellent italian food at a surprisingly affordable cost! The meat sauce is fantastic and the fresh bread is awesome. I could eat here all the time! Carry out or delivery is available as well as dine in. Dine in can get crowded during the weekends. Delivery takes about 30-45 minutes in general. Carry out is pretty quick. Parking can get messy with cars waiting for parking spots close to the door. Save yourself the hassle and park farther away and just walk.

Avanti's is great for the poor college student or a togo order when you're headed for a picnic. It's simplistic flavors and super soft bread are designed for children, old people, or anyone with a child-like taste palette. I didn't find it romantic, or quaint. It's another kind of fast food, and allows large families to go out without breaking the bank. If you've never been, you should go just so you can say you've been. In Bloomington-Normal, Avanti's is very popular, but I don't know why.

Great food, friendly staff and reasonable prices. What more could you ask for in a restaurant. THey also deliver to your home which is great if you dont feel like going out. They have a great selection of Italian food including sandwiches and other things. ONe thing you have to try if you are going to avantis is their bread. It is absolutly wonderful and they bring a basket to your table after you order. It is the best!!

I couldn't do reviews of dining out if I didn't include Avanti's. They started in Normal in 1973. Dine-in, carry-out, or delivery, Avanti's serves up the best Italian food around! From pizza and pasta to sandwiches and salads, the food is delicious and satisfying, and the service is fast and friendly. The bread is made from scratch and baked fresh daily. They are famous for their sweet italian bread. They bake over 3000 loaves a day! They sit right in the heart of the campus of ISU. People come from all over the US just to eat here. They even ship the bread out to people who remember it and want it agian without the travel. The prices are downright low and its a great place for the whole family. If you have never tried Avanti's you have to stop in.

Please do yourself a favor and try the Gondola. It's just a simple Ham, Salami, Lettuce, and Cheese Sandwich, but combine that with Avanti's outstanding bread and its excellent. In fact, try ANYTHING with the bread. My family and I always buy a few loaves of the bread to go when we are done and make cheese bread at home.
