Best Value

If the views of Peoria expatriates are any indication, the food at Avanti’s Ristorante is among the top things you’d miss about the region if you ever moved away. Just ask Chicago Cubs slugger and Eureka native Ben Zobrist, who warmly received a delivery of its world-famous gondola sandwich last fall... and promptly hit a home run! At Avanti’s, the prices are always good, the service is quick, and the sweet bread keeps you coming back for more.
