OWNER/CHEF DAN FERRIOLO

Dan Ferriolo’s adventure began on New Year’s Eve 2007. What a great night to be at Ristorante Avanti. A New Year and a new restaurant both rang in with taste and style.  


Dan brings many years of experience. His journey began as a dishwasher working on Erie St. from there he discovered his true passion in the culinary field. Dan graduated from the Culinary program at St.Clair College.  Dan took a chance from a steady cooking position to open up his very own restaurant and it has been a success story ever since.


Enjoy Dan's many Italian dishes on the A La Carte menu or indulge in the most popular All You Can Eat Family Style menu which has now become Avanti`s specialty. Which ever you choose, you will find Dan cooking in the kitchen, sometimes serving your food as well as just coming out to see how your meal was.

Avanti has been pleased to host many special occasions. Avanti welcomes weddings, wedding rehearsals, showers, baptisms, communions, confirmations, birthday and Christmas parties, etc. Allow the staff to make your occasion worry free and most memorable. 


So come and indulge in a piece of Italy when you walk through the doors of Avanti. Take in the relaxed atmosphere while your food is being prepared in our open concept environment. Whether for a business meeting, casual dinner or private function enjoy an unparalleled dining experience.
