Customer Testimonials

Wanted to let you know our reservation of the banquet room at the E. Empire location worked very well for our group of 17 friends enjoying our evening meal.
Kudos to our server, Morgan. She did a fabulous job.
I will recommend we use the room again in the future. We meet once a month.

I just wanted to let you know that the baby shower was wonderful. Our server was Morgan and she was terrific! She kept everyone's drinks full, and made sure we had everything that we needed.
I will definitely recommend your banquet room to friends and family.
Thank you for your help.
Good afternoon, We ordered our staff luncheon from your store for noon today. Everyone was pleased with their choices (Italian Beef and Chicken Tenders) and the Caesar salad w/chicken was well received; the dressing was delicious!!
Thank you for proving us with a wonderful meal, and always excellent service. Mike is great.
Happy Holidays,
You know how every college campus has a restaurant with good food at a good price? Avanti's is that to ISU. From the gondola to any pasta, it is all good. The bread is a sweet bread, great for dipping in ajus from italian beef or just with butter.
Dear Sir or Madam:
I recently met up with a couple of ISU friends. We had not all been together in about 40 years! One of the ladies insisted that we dine in your restaurant, which we did. It had been her very favorite while a student at ISU.
I am writing this because we had a very delicious lunch. Kudos to the chef! I also wanted to tell you that I took the leftover bread. It was wrapped and in a brown bag, which I forgot about for two days. The bread was fresh, soft and just as delicious when I opened the bag. I wanted to tell you that and let you know how good it is. No wonder your restaurant is famous for the gondola!
I hope to visit Normal again and experience wonderful dining at your establishment.
