Avanti Cafe, my first time

Howdie Foodies!

After driving by the place a million times, I and my wife finally stopped to eat.

When I see "wood fired" and "gourmet" used together I am expecting one hellava pizza.

Going into a pizzaria for the first time I always order a "plain" cheese pizza (the true test of a "good" pizzaria) and one of the "specialty" pizzas, the "Wood Burned Delight".

You know what they say that pizza is like sex, even when it's's still pretty good.

It wasn't bad pizza, it was....uh.... just plain ol' ordinary pizza. not what I would call "gourmet". The cheese, the toppings, the crust...I coulda went to your average mom and pop and got the same thing there...for about half the price.

I dunno...maybe in my age my taste buds are getting worn... am I wrong?

Finally, the workers there, well they weren't rude, but I wouldn't pass out any medals for service either. I don't mind humbly giving away my money to a snooty or "i don't care if you are here" attitude....but the food has to make my toes curl!

Will I ever go back? nah... i got better places to eat pizza that taste way better for cheaper with owners who are happy to see me and my family walk in the front door.

Good eats!
