Lovely find close to where we were staying.
Staff very attentive.
Cappucino was artfully done.
Loved this place. Meal was delicious, staff were excellent and prices reasonable.
Always a great place to dine at. Jessica and her dad always wants to please their customers.
Nice Italian dinner not far from Middle Beach. We took an Uber from Eden Roc, only a 5 minute ride. Great menu with a variety of pasta, fish and steak dishes. We shared the burrata cheese special that included prosciutto, arugula, tomato and bread. It was delicious. My daughter enjoyed the lobster ravioli and I had chicken piccata. It was tender but wishing I had ordered fish. We also shared the sautéed spinach and mushrooms which were great. Service was good except once when I put my fork down halfway thru my meal and a busboy came right over and asked if I was finished. Felt a little rushed. Good dessert tray but we abstained as the portions for dinner were more than adequate.
We had not been to Cafe Avanti in a long time despite being close to home. we were totally impressed with their friendly attention and cordial service. The restaurant was full people of all ages having a good time. The food was well prepared and delicious, outstanding service and best of all Cafe Avanti has been around since 1989.
Always nice a great neighborhood place with good food👍
The restaurant was very busy so it took a while for our order to be taken. The Super Tuscan red wine was really good but the veal chop was disappointing.
Great food, ambience, service
Continues it's place as one of the best hidden restaurants in the Fountainbleu and Eden Roc area of Miami Beach
Our server Jesus was excellent and attentive to every detail. He made us feel special despite a very busy crowd for Valentine’s Day. The food was exceptional as always. A definite go to spot even on short notice.
The food was very good. Portions were modest. service was very slow. To be fair it was Valentine’s Day.
Food was excellent and our waiter Desi was attentive, interesting, courteous plus he gave us the history of the father and daughter joining together in the restaurant Avanti after her education in our home town- Boston and her working experience at one of the best steak restaurants in Boston “Abe and Loui’s”. It was like I was back home in the north end of Boston.
Service was outstanding and the menu items were reasonably priced but the specials for the grouper was very high and a surprise when I got the bill. Strawberry cheesecake was excellent.
Very good food and service!
This was our 4'th dinner at Cafe Avanti. The first time we "stumbled" across it...it was a holiday evening and very crowded and the waiters were working hard to keep up, but the food was fantastic and the desserts amazing. So we came back again, and then again and we'll be back often. The waiters are attentive, the menu is impressive and every thing we've tried (Veal Chops, Chicken, Steak, Salmon has been delicious. The wine list is extensive and best of all the prices are reasonable
FOOD AND SERVICE ALWAYS AMAZING , WE ENJOYED EVERYTHING !!
The food and service are very good, have been there a few times, consistent
Normally the food and service are excellent here. However, they were short-staffed and the service was below their standards (only two waiters for entire restaurant). Waited half hour before someone even poured water or gave us menus. Owner should have jumped in to help...
Great service and people running this nice Miami Beach gem. Nice Italian cuisine, very good food and superb service. Loved it - after all the over-priced restaurants on the tourist trail. Highly recommend! Had a great meal on vacation in January 2018
Never disappoints. Their Pasta Carbonara is will stand the test of the toughest critic. I'm not a fan of meat balls but theirs you can't turn down and their marinara sauce...Exquisite!
Great Italian food with good and friendly service. Great if you are looking to get out of the south beach craziness. Worth the drive.
Avanti is one of the few reliable restaurants on Miami Beach. The chef has been there for decades, as have many of the servers. It never disappoints. High quality Italian cuisine, and a cozy atmosphere makes this restaurant a “go to” café for everyday dining. It’s not budget-fare, but you get what you pay for at Avanti, i.e. great food that doesn’t vary from one dining experience to another.
We love the food and the service. Desi is our favorite waiter at the restaurant. He tends to our every need. We are always treated like family.
Food is consistently very good
Always feel welcome
The Italian cheesecake is to die for
We have been going to Avanti for many years. The place never disappoints. Excellent service and perfect ambiance!
Le personnel est vraiment gentil pour les touristes!
Great,great,great everything about Avanti is and has always been great
Excellent Italian restaurant. My husband and I both have the lobster risotto which is excellent and in very large portion. I would recommend it
Reliable, good, not spectacular Italian food. A neighborhood staple for years. Pricey wine list.
The owners are very hands-on... the food is absolutely awesome... a bit pricey, but worth every penny. A small gem in the middle of 41st. Love this place! It has a lot of charm!
Loved the food, ambience et all. Our waiter was very experienced yet definitely needed help. There were long periods of inactivity by wait staff. We had to ask for water , cheese etc. Service faults only deterrence to a great restaurant.
Good food, excellent service.
Great Italian restaurant in Miami Beach.
Excellent, as usual
Very much appreciated
Great service, great food
Amazing Italian food at a great price with great service!
Really nice Italian restaurant only a quick drive from our hotel in Miami Beach. Great food.
Although 1/2 empty, 5 different waiters serviced us, confusing at best.
Gnocchi as a main course was mealy, doughy, although uneaten, no one seemed to care.
The food was delicious and the servings were generous. The service was excellent. They were friendly and attentive. It felt like a meal at a friend's home, if that friend had a fantastic home with great ambiance. There was low music in the background and lowlighting. The desserts and coffe were delicious too.
Dined with my two daughters on a Friday night. The staff lavished attention and time on some tables while neglecting other. Requests for bread, drink refills, etc. too far too long. Maybe this is a great place for locals who dine there often, but not for all female tourist groups looking for a nice meal.
Super friendly and accommodating staff, awesome authentic food. Great prices.
