Consistently among the best food in the area and service is always top notch. Forgot our shrimp added to a meal this time...but overall is always an excellent experience! The Calamari rivals anything on the globe...and hoping they bring back the Lamb Chops soon!

I am not sure if it's because there was a wedding this night, but we were in a little side room that was small and didn't feel like a restaurant at all. The food was delicious but entree portion was small. Drinks were good. Very minimal wine selection, just one option of a few different types and no cabernet. Just assumed a nice place like this would have a great wine list.

Great restaurant that's part of the Inn at Leola. You can eat there without staying at the Inn. Great menu, food, ambiance and the prices were in line with the quality and portions of the meal. Completely recommend it for a special occasion or if you are staying the Inn or nearby.

This was our first meal out since the pandemic started. We are so pleased we chose Osteria Avanti. The staff was friendly and helpful. The tables were very well spaced out. Our food was excellent! We will be recommending Avanti to everyone and will certainly return.

Our Filet Mignon dinners were the best we’ve had. Cooked to perfection and the potatoes were delicious. Even the vegetables were flavorful and a great side. Dessert was Walnut Cake and Chocolate Torte. Both were great
to end our meals. The focaccia and herbed butter is addictive. Compliments to your Chef as it was all over the top!

My wife did not like her entree waiter never asked if she wanted anything else that’s unacceptable to me she only ate a couple bites and we were charged for the full meal $24 the waitress who bought my wife’s food response to a question my wife had about the food was very rude my entree was ok but all together the waiter and waitress could of been a lot more thoughtful and understanding I wouldn’t go back again because me and my wife work hard for our money and just want to be treated with respect we are African American my wife has 40 years with the State of New Jersey and I have 18 years with State Police we are very respectable people and the treatment we got was uncaring and unthoughtful we wouldn’t say this if it’s wasn’t so we are people of integrity but we were so upset we just left our bill money on the table without a tip and this is something we never do but it’s ok it just helps us to strive the more to be people of integrity and honor thank you very much and God Bless

You could tell that they were short staffed and it took longer to get drinks, food and checks but the food was still good and our overall experience was good. We have been to this restaurant before and it was amazing! This experience was not as great but we would still come back.

I realize it is during COVID times. The tables were spaced out nicely. It could have used a little music to buffer other tables conversations. Food could have been a little hotter, appetizers were lukewarm. Server did a nice job and was attentive. My husbands steak was undercooked, he asked for it to be cooked a little more. They chose to cook him a new steak, which kept me waiting with my food getting cold. The steak they sent out as a replacement was noticeably a lesser quality cut of meat. Which was a disappointment,

The food was not the greatest for what it should be for the cost.
I’ve had Chilean sea bass before but this time it was definitely not the buttery delicious fish I’m used to. Also it was served with the skin on. Just disappointed. I think it may have been sea bass but not Chilean. The filet mignon was done nicely.

We had reservations, but when we got there, no seats ! They asked us if we minded to sit in an overflow room which had no ambiance whatsoever. Being a Sunday night raining in that area it only made sense to stay and make the best of it. If that wasn’t bad enough , the menu was literally about 25% of what was represented on line. The only reason we went there was based on the menu displayed on website. No pasta dish! No bread! It was my wife’s 60th birthday. We could have made reservations at any number of places. They were very cavalier about everything. They should understand we came from hours away as part of a weekend getaway and for them to just change the menu and not reserve our table was very disappointing. Service sucked we waited 30 minutes for our check. Food we ate was tasty though
You have to look at the overall experience and so even though the food we did end up ordering was tasty I will never return. My apologies

Presentation was nice. The chicken platter was decent but while my tenderloin tips were ok the rice, peppers and mushrooms with that entree were both greasy and mushy. Beautiful setting. Also they were coping with Covid restrictions.
