Have loved this place for years. Service was average. Food is above average and sometimes excellent.

This place has excellent food, excellent service every time. It is a great choice for date night. It can be difficult to get in the parking lot because of all the idiots that frequent uptown. The inside is surprisingly quiet given all the noise outside. You cannot go wrong dining at Avanti any time, day or night or very very early in the A.M.

My first time at Avanti...knew
My first time at Avanti...knew it by reputation, and decided to give it a try, with 3 business guests from out of town on a Thursday night. Everything was superb! Food, service, ambiance, all tops. I had the bone-in veal chop, which was buttery delicious. We were at the table for over 2 1/2 hours and never rushed or urged to open it for another party, even though the restaurant was very busy.

Good Italian food
Nothing over the top just good consistent Italian food. The beet salad is the best I've had anywhere.

Avanti---Always a Good Dallas Choic
We went to Avanti recently to celebrate the 17th birthday of our daughter. This is always a very good choice for lunch or dinner in Dallas. Relatively small place, good ambiance , good food and good service. The restaurant is also located in the McKinney area, which is a nice area with a lot of other restaurants . A good vibe in this part of Dallas.

I have been in Dallas for
I have been in Dallas for almost two weeks and I have had dinner four times at Avanti's. Our server Martin was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable when it came to the food and wine, gave really good descriptions and took excellent care of us. I will definitely come back to Avanti's the next time I am in Dallas. They also have live music.

The sea bass entrée was excellent as was the Lobster/crab ravioli. Excellent service and very cozy. My husband and I had a very relaxed dinner with little wait time between entrees.

We came to visit our college
We came to visit our college son and had a wonderful dinner with him and several of his friends. Everyone was very happy with the appetizers and their entree choices.
We will be back soon! And the boys all say they have a new favorite place to ask their parents to take them when in town for a visit!

I am addicted to Avanti's
This is my second trip to Dallas in a month period and I have now been to Avanti's six times. I would go back tomorrow if I didn't have a plane to catch. I have not had a single thing that I did not enjoy. Martine is my #1 server. The carbonara is something to write home about. I think it is very unique and has flavor unlike any other carbonara. I recommend you go and see for yourself. Yoiu will not be disappointed.

The food was very good. The
The food was very good. The service needs improvement. The guy spilled ice on the table and didn't even notice. He also kept overfilling my coffee cup which made a mess. It they can improve on that service, this is a great choice for lunch or dinner.

My husband had spinach lasagne, I had lobster/crabmeat ravioli, and we both had a fair amount of leftovers. We asked for a to-go box, our waiter said he would take care of that for us, but, he never brought them out. :(

Great all around!
We chose this as a last minute dinning spot on Friday nite. stuffed mushroom were our appetizers, which were very good. Hubby had spinach lasagne. He special requested to sub the combo bechamel/marinara for marinara only. No problem and proved to be a great choice. I chose the Capellini Pescatore. Description stated shellfish and what I got was a great pasta bowel of muscles, large shrimp, scallops and calamari with a delicious light sauce! Dessert menu made for a difficult choice but we landed on tiramisu. This dessert is made in house and awesome. Our only suggestion for improvements would be for the bread brought to the table. While good, we just expect a good crusty bread with this type menu.
We will definitely return here very soon.

Fantastic for our Second Visit
My wife and and I visited this restaurant for the first time 2 years ago and the experience was great. Food was phenomenal, atmosphere was very romantic, and the service was great. We went back for a quiet night out away from the kids and our experience this time was as good as the first, aside from being a little louder than last time. We will definitely be back in another 2 years :) J/K
