I was mildly disappointed. My girlfriend had the ribeye, which was decent. The accompanying potatoes were excellent. My risotto was only fair. Surprisingly, the bartender could not make an old fashioned cocktail. It came out red. I asked if they mistakenly made it with grenadine and the waiter replied "no, but we made it with cherries" by which I think he meant that they muddled cherries into the drink. Yuck.

I had angel hair pasta with shrimp and it was excellent. Little more salad dressing for my salad would’ve made the whole experience perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant for great Italian cuisine.

We went there as a final date before my boyfriend left the next day for Seattle so we wanted to find a really nice place we hadn’t eaten at before. Our waiter was very very nice and professional. What I ordered required a small tweak because they ran out of angel hair pasta but it was still delicious. Really nice atmosphere and wasn’t too loud or crowded. I was really happy I found this place for our last date.

Avanti did not recognize that we had a reservation made through Open Table. They did seat us but out of the mainstream although many tables were empty when we arrived. The special was chicken piccata which I ordered. It was rather ordinary. Service was quiet attentive although our waiter had to speak in a very loud voice to be heard above the background noise level.

Food is outstanding as always, I have not had a single item that was nothing less than delicious. I even like the Grouchy demeanor of the owner when he greats you, It instills a sense of family run character. will be back many times.

The meal I had didn't have much flavor. Also my husbands 4 shrimps that were added to his meal was en extra charge of $11.00. If we need it was 4 shrimps we would have said no or opted to another meal. My meal was $21.00 and had about 8 shrimps. His was $31.00 with 4 shrimps.
