We had a business lunch at Avanti and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Our table ordered pizza and steaks, everyone was very happy with their food and waiter was friendly and professional. Would recommend them to anyone.

What a wonderful discovery. The food was superb and the service was out of the top drawer. Such an interesting menu which catered for most tastes and was an excellent example of Italian cuisine. Will definitely go there again on our next visit to Bloemfontein.

The pasta was good. Atmosphere lacking. Nice play area. Service very slow and unimpressive. Will definitely not go there again.

Our waiter SK went out of his way to give us great service. He was very efficient and attentive and even remembered everything we had ordered when we went back for another meal a few days later! Best food and service in Bloem.

What an excellent Italian restaurant turned out Avanti to be. We enjoyed the most amazing pizza well prepared and presented. We had also some pasta which was the best one that we had for a long time. Service amazing.
