Established in 1989, Cafe Avanti is in a league of its own. Fine traditional Italian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. It's family owned and operated, and home away from home for Miami Beach locals. The staff is welcoming and hospitable, and are sure to make you feel like a regular even as a first time guest. Chef Constantino Cadavid has been at the helm of Cafe Avanti for over 21 years. It's reputation for consistency is like no other. From veal meatballs and tuna tartare, to osso bucco and frutta di mare, every dish is absolutely decadent. Desserts are homemade & the ricotta cheesecake is the best you will ever have. Parking is easy and meters are turned off at 6pm. Whether you sit at the bar, cozy brick room, a romantic table by the window, or have a large party, Cafe Avanti will provide you with the perfect experience that you are looking for.

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.

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.

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

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!
