From valet to check - perfection!
Pasta was very good Osso bucco was a bit tuff
Avanti is consistently excellent. We always receive great service from the attentive team. The live music is a great feature.
I like the friendliness of the staff and ease of use -- I can bounce in and out for a meal without a long wait.
The food is great, and maybe more important, I like to go to a place where people identified me as a frequent customer and they make sure EVERYBODY knows my name and my wife's name. LOL! Avanti is one of our favorites.
We came here for our anniversary and love it! The food, waiter, ambiance was great and exactly what we were looking for on this special evening. Will definitely visit again!
Great food and great service - coming from a bigger city with a great Italian neighborhood, have been to many “Italian” restaurants here in Dallas, most were bad pizza places with microwave pasta or Mac and cheese out of a box masquerading as Italian. Good wine list, everyone was very pleasant, managers came around to see how everyone was doing, food was hot when it arrived, had a special occasion and got a great dessert with candles and appropriate level fan fare. Will be going back many times....
Consistent & remarkable food. Also, a charming place where you feel as if you are tryly welcome.
Daniel, one if the server was fantastic. He was not our server but cane in and checked on our table few others I noticed. Good eye when other fellow server is busy.
Spinach lasagna was good but felt like something was missing in flavor. Everything else was great as usual.
I would love to have one more option apart from risotto and Spinach lasagna vegetarian entree.
Very good food, great service. I would visit again if I am back in the Dallas area
One of our best go-to places in UPTOWN. Never displeased!
Great birthday experience!!
Always a great meal!😋
I’ve been here several times. It’s a true neighborhood gem! Intimate, great food, great service, excellent wine selection. You will not be disappointed!
Great! Food was fantastic!
Always great service and great food at Avant's. Enjoyed it with friends this time. A little too noisy to hear each other easily, but every dish we ordered was excellent and the wait staff took great care of us.
We enjoyed our date night here. Our only problem was that Our drinks (martinis) were undrinkable. There was SO much alcohol in them that they burned to drink.
I decided to take my "Uptown Girl" to Uptown Dallas for a Post-Valentine's romantic dinner. Avanti was my one and only choice for the occasion. It lived up to everything wonderful I had heard about the restaurant. Our waiter, Sr. Martin, took special care of us, and made the night extra special. We were also fortunate enough to enjoy the beautiful sounds from world renowned guitarist Russ Hewitt.
If you're looking for a romantic place to take your date for an exquisite selection of wine and food, then this is the restaurant you've been looking for. Everything about that night was perfect! We will definitely be going back soon.
As usual the restaurant was fantastic. Our favorite place to dine in Dallas. The whole staff is one of the best and the food is always good and plentiful.
Food was delicious! Excelent service. The wine recomendation was superb. Very nice ambience. Recomend it!
I went with my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday on Valentine’s Day and my experience was great. It was my first time there and I love it. It’s a great spot with live music and the food was delicious. The staff was very attentive and nice. It’s worth the price. We will be going there again
Avanti is one of our favorite "go-to" restaurants. The food is delicious, staff is so very friendly, it's dark, cozy & romantic, and they usually have a live guitarist playing soft beautiful music.
Valentine’s dinner. Food and service was superb. Affluent guests are noisy though.
Service and good was OK, place was actually loud due to winter Olympic Games on TV and yelling at bar. Had trouble hearing my spouse across the table. Had a special request to write I Love You More! On desert plate but it didn't get done.........kind of messed up the ending of our anniversary date. Left $140 out of pocket for a night I won't get back
Our server Niene was cheerful and knowledgeable. Loved the asparagus salad. Nice touch with the music. Appreciated reseating us in a more quiet location away from the front door. We would come back
We asked server to put unused break into our leftover bag, but she did not.
I have been here a half-dozen times and never had less than a 4-star experience, usually a 5. I was a little disappointed at first this time because I requested a booth in my reservation and they sat us outside, but less than ten minutes later the manager came by and offered us a booth that was opening up. It should be noted that I didn't have to say anything, the manager must've seen the reservation and taken the initiative to fix the situation on her own. That on its own was impressive. After that slight hiccup, in the beginning, everything else went perfectly. The service at this place is always top-tier and the food is excellent. We will undoubtedly be back again.
Extremely wonderful from the slow music to the sitting and the calamari fritti is the best I’ve had so far. Will definitely go again
celebrated a birthday! everything was great. was hoping they’d see we put birthday as our occasion in the open table reservation and do some fun small birthday dessert. but otherwise, it was great! they have the best chicken parm
What a great place! Our party of 3 had a fantastic dinner here. We all got the arugula salad, then ordered the chicken parm, the grilled salmon with risotto, and the pepper steak special. All of them were prepared perfectly. We shared 2 desserts, the Kahlua chocolate cheesecake and the peanut butter chocolate pie.
Additionally, the service was excellent. We were very well taken care of. I highly recommend this place.
Very popular place with the locals, even on the weekdays, so reservations are encouraged. Excellent selection of wine, cocktails, and food for all to enjoy. The live guitar music is always a pleasure and subtle enough to enjoy a conversation. Authentic Italian selections from pasta to fish and meats for all tastes. Attentive waiters. Relatively small bar but fully stocked and you can even order a flight of scotch or tequila if you don't prefer one of the several craft cocktails.
As a repeat customer, I have never been disappointed at this Uptown dining gem. All items were reasonably priced too, depending on your wine choices of course. Highly recommend this place for an enjoyable, casual but upscale, dining experience!
Great service and food as usual. A little too noisy for my taste.
Great service and food. We orderded chicken parmesan and three cheese spinach lasagna and everything was delicious. Our server was Martin and he was very knowledgeable and made pretty good recommendations, also really kind.
Although the restaurant was fairly crowded, we had excellent service the entire meal. Our waiter was very attentive, but the servers work as a team, including the manager, who helped out and came by to chat.
The food was very good and we will definitely come back!
My favorite restaurant. ALWAYS very good food, good service, nice relaxing environment that isn’t too noisy. CONSISTENTLY good without exception.
Always a great experience, amazing food, good prices, and impeccable service! Absolute Dallas favorite!
The ambiance was really nice and intimate, we decided to come here for my boyfriends birthday since he loves Italian food. He really enjoyed his dish, the fettuccini Diablo, I believe it’s called. I ordered the linguini and clams which was also delicious. For an appitizer I order the calamari, it was bad but wasn’t anything remarkable either. Deinfetly could've used some spices in the batter.
Our server, Martin if I remember correctly, was very nice. He took awhile to take our order as he seemed to get sat another time not too long after we got there. All in all, he gave good service though.
I may not return very soon just because of the price but possibly for another special occasion.
It was my mothers birthday, so my boyfriend and I took her out! Everything was amazing! It was a little warm in there but it wasn’t enough to kill our fun! Loved the food. We will definitely be back!
Excellent ambiance, food and service outstanding!
Food was excellent, service was fantastic. Will definitely be back next time I’m in Dallas!
Always a favorite stop when we come to Dallas. Never disappointed.
