Aside from the most dimly lit booth ever, the food was superb. My husband had a warm burrata angle hair pasta and I had short rib lasagne. We shared a desert of coconut cake and it was scrumptious!

This is a very elegant feeling location. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The meal was excellent. There is minimal parking on the Main Street. Therefore, you may need to park on the backside of the restaurant. There are two entrances, they both lead to the hostess, who is located in the center of the restaurant.

First visit and will be back. Valentine’s Day dinner with my Queen. Seated quickly in the bar area , which was loud, which was the only negative during this dinner. Wine was very good and reasonably priced. The veal cutlet was tender and well seasoned. Try the braised short rib lasagna, not traditional but fantastic. Varied menu of interesting items. My final comment try it, you will like it.

It is high season and therefore on Saturday nights. Pricier then I thought. They did honor requests to sit against a wall. Heather server was outstanding. Very dark hard to read menu luckily our server had flashlights lol! She made the night! Personable, friendly and caring.

Had to return my very cold pasta twice. They finally had to remake it. I ordered butternut squash gnocchi but there was NO gnocchi in it when I asked my server about this he asked what gnocchi was?? Had to ask where my wine was after my husband had just about finished his drink. Won’t be back. Too bad / we have enjoyed this place in the past

Very good food and service. The restaurant is extremely noisy making conversations difficult.
Would suggest eating in the back bar area which is much quieter

My family is Italian and we are hard to please when it comes to going out to eat. Our guest requested an Italian Restaurant. I had been told by Pauline Cronin to try your restaurant. Pauline knows I'm fussy.
I am going to bring my Mom when she visits, she makes home made pasta. I think she will fully enjoy your restaurant. I have already have told many people I work with about your restaurant. Thank you kindly,

This was our first time at Avanzare, however we had been recommended by friends on more that one occasion. We decided to give it a try and were thoroughly delighted! The food was delicious, the wine list was comprehensive and reasonable, and our server Cora, was terrific! Friendly with a fun sense of humor and repartee. We shall definitely return and bring visiting friends as well.

Always solid dishes here. Back of the house seating in the bar isn't as nice as the front unless you want to watch tv while you're dining.

Food was exceptional. Usually great service but not this time.we were told that they were out of something after we ordered. after receiving my salad I was asked if I wanted ground pepper. I said yes then our server walked away and didn’t come back until I was half finished with the salad. Our dinners were great. I had been accustomed to better service.

Everything was great until “busboy” came to clear the table and basically told us to leave. They close at 9p. Not sure how that is possible for a table of 7 when we weren’t seated until after 8p... Although we have always enjoyed it here, I will find it very hard to come back

We love Avanzare but this evening seemed a bit off. Out of my husbands favorite beer, ran out of my wine choice, my veal was greasy and not well presented. We have wonderful creative meals here and have been coming for ten years, but just an off night

It was my birthday and we went Monday night for the "Chef's Whim". What a FANTASTIC meal for the price. Every course was absolutely outstanding. I like to think of myself as a "foodie". This meal did not disappoint. I would definitely recommend trying the "Chef's Whim". It was a true delight!

Ate at Avanzare last night. There are lots of Italian restaurants in Vero Beach. We found Avanzare to be the best of the best. The food was exceptional as well as the service. The Menu has lots of selections and my favorite was the Steak Tartare and the Veal Avanzare. There is an Early Bird Menu that is available from 5-5:30 pm and represents a great value. The Specials change daily so there is always something new to try. I would make reservations as they were fairly busy for a Thursday night. I am really looking forward to my next dining experience at Avanzare!

Nice place and good ambiance. The food was delicious. The only drawback is the restaurant closes too early (9:00 PM on Saturday). Otherwise, it was worth it.

We love this place. The menu is changing and always offers something unique, for the adventurous, and some perennial favorites for those not inclined to try new things. Service was smooth and efficiently timed.
