Long before all the new pizza places opened along Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena residents have been going to Avanti for wood-fired pizzas. Open since 1987, the cozy little pizzeria has been making terrific pies, loaded with old and new-style ingredients, as well as magnificent calzones and pastas. Sure, it takes longer than the pizzas do at 800 Degrees, but get a glass of wine and talk to the staff and the locals that frequent the place. It's a neighborhood place, after all.
