Restaurant decor need some updating.
Service is always on point. Love the steak tartare. Great wine selection.
Apparently the restaurant had our Open Table reservation for the wrong time, but it wasn’t a problem. Our server was excellent. When our first table was uncomfortable, she was happy to reseat us. We came for the early bird dinner before a show. We ate delicious food at the right price and made our show on time.
Avanzare doesn't disappoint. The burrata with Angel hair pasta was amazing.
Excellent Italian food with great service. Prices were reasonable for high quality food.
Alcohol and wine selections were good with fair pricing.
At dinner the lighting provided a positive ambiance with a low noise level. My wife and I travel a distance to eat at Avanzare and we have never been disappointed!
We look forward to our next visit.
Avanzare is a great restaurant. Home made pasta dishes are the best. I had the short rib lasagna and it was fantastic. atmosphere is good. There is also a back bar area that is good for Happy Hour too.
Three of us came here in search of good Italian food in a non-trendy setting. We all chose from the 'specials' menu and really enjoyed our dinners. The back room was very comfortable and we liked the ambiance there better than the front room. The manager and waitstaff were just super.
Mediocre service, sharp clam shells in the linguine and clam sauce, no homemade pasta or ravioli, as they advertise. Were seated next to the loud bar, but was looking for a quiet dinner. Filthy floor, including old food under tables 1/2 hour after they opened. No music even in the background, just noise. Bread and dipping oil with fresh basil was very good. I could go on, but won't. We won't be going back.
HAVE EATEN HERE SEVERAL TIMES, ALWAYS GOOD. GREAT EARLY DINING MENU, AND BAR PRICES A GOOD VALUE, HAD A GREAT WAITRESSS, FORGOT HER NAME BUT SHE WAS FROM UPSTATE N.Y.
Love this restaurant. Every time we visit Vero Beach we have at least one meal at this great Italian restaurant. We have never been disappointed.
Food was excellent. Each of the four of us ordered a different dish —veal saltimbocca, pork chop, Zuppa de pesce, and shrimp and octopus fra diabalo — and all were very pleased. Service was friendly and efficient.
The meal was great but we were seated in the bar area and it was very noisy- next time we would request not to be in the bar - otherwise awesome.
This place was fantastic
The suggested wine was perfect, the traditional lasagna was fresh and outstanding, the tiramisu was superb!
The wait staff was gracious. Mirela is a beautiful delightful and professional server.
When we asked the. very mature 16 year old helper why she drives so far for work she said it was because the people here are beautiful to work with. We will be back soon!
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!
We had a great time. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We always have a great time at Avanzare.
Valentine Dinner with my husband. Food and service were excellent.
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.
The food and service was outstanding. Considering it was Valentines Day that is amazing!
Had veal piccata very good, the veal was very tender
Avanzare is dependably good upscale Italian dining. Nice atmosphere excellant service and good value for the money.
The food was excellent. The Server was training and I felt was falling behind a bit, however he was great.
Great food and great service, we will definitely be back.
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.
Ask for Tyler he made the evening amazing..A big thank you Tyler,
We were very pleased as we always are. We have been going there for our anniversary for 4 years and always are pleased. Shrimp Scampi was especially delicious! 👏🏼
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
Very satisfactory event. Food is always good, would love to see more variation. Friendly, always run into people I know.
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.
Outstanding restaurant; freshly prepared home made pasta, great veal and fish dishes.
Not to be missed !!!
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
We keep coming back to Avanzare year after year. Consistently great food served in a timely manner. Servers are friendly and efficient.
I already wrote a review on the service, food and ambiance on trip advisor. see trip advisor
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!
