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.

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.

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.
