About Avanti Restaurant & Bar
Situated on the border of Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria twixt The Yorkshire Dales and The Lake District, Kirkby Lonsdale is the home of Avanti. Our emphasis on art and style blends with our rustic Mediterranean cuisine which our chefs have created with a Spanish / Italian influence.
Our relaxed and lively atmosphere is aided by our walled garden where you can dine al fresco during the summer or sip Belgian beers at night under our patio heaters.
Our wine list has been sourced by the award winning Byrnes of Clitheroe to keep your enjoyment levels going to midnight.
We’ll be back .... sooner rather than later hopefully!
Disappointing birthday meal. Requested an allergy menu for my daughter, as she is allergic to dairy, but they didn’t have one. I was told all sauces contained butter and were preprepared so the only option was to make her a sandwich. The waitress then returned to inform me that they didn't know if the bread had milk in or not, so the only option was salad (she is 1). Surely an Italian restaurant should be able to make up a quick tomato sauce in these circumstances?!?! We had already ordered drinks and picked our food so decided to stay, and my husband went to spar down the road for something for my daughter. When they arrived, our pizzas were cold, soggy and overpriced. We will not be returning!
We had a lovely meal. All very tasty. Serving staff were great very professional and courteous. Always visit Avanti when we are in Kirkby Lonsdale
First time visit for evening meal but it won’t be the last. Went with friends and we all enjoyed the food and service. Steaks were delicious and staff friendly and helpful.
Whole experience let down by poor service
My wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal again, returning to have an evening meal whilst on holiday in the area. Though we were not staying in Kirkby Lonsdale this year, we were keen to return, since we had a great experience last year, and we were not disappointed again. Keep up the good work!
Great friendly place with excellent pasta & a nice atmosphere
Only negative was the smell of cigarette smoke from the door being opened next to bar downstairs. We were sat on table next to it and it became unpleasant. Good service, great food and will definitely go again
Excellent: as good as ever!
All Waitress very polite and friendly. Food was great from start to finish especially the saltimbocca the sauce was amazing but all the food was.
Outstanding meal. Our whole party reallly enjoyed it. Many thanks.
We had a fabulous evening and will definitely be recommending you to outmr friends.
Much improved from last year, in service and quality of food. Tiramisu was delish.
Great evening out!
Great food at affordable prices
The choice was excellent, the food was very good and the staff were very friendly. In all a great time I would definitely recommend the Avanti to anyone. Thank you for a lovely meal.
It was my wife’s birthday and they looked after us really well.
For one reason or another, we haven't been for a long time, and were delighted that we were able to this time: it was all up to the usual high standard, and we were much impressed with the new dishes that we chose - especially the ham parcels! Many thanks.
The restaurant had no record of our on line booking but they managed to get us in and looked after us really well. They did explain they had been having problems with their on line bookings and a few had been lost that week The bar area downstairs was very noisy but the upstairs was fine
Quality food and service in great surroundings.
We had a table outside which was wonderful. The pizza and prosecco offer was very good value. Will be back.
Thanks for a lovely lunch. Our Canadian friends were impressed with the food and service especially the gluten free pizza option.
Delicious pizza, friendly staff, lovely looking restaurant, highly recommend!
Always great! We always visit when we come to Kirkby Lonsdale
