Everything about this place is so good. We tried it after it was recommended so much on local foodie groups and it did not disappoint. Drinks, appetizer, and entrees were all delicious! Our server was THE BEST! He directed us with recommendations based on our likes. Definitely going back! ❤️
We are so happy to know you enjoyed your experience with us, and hope to serve you again soon!
My wife and I visited last Saturday. She had the Frutti di mare risotto and I had the branzino. Both were exceptional. The chef went out of his way to avoid my wife's allergens. The tres leches is one of the best in town.
Thank you for taking the time to review us, we really appreciate your feedback!
Great food with interesting menu and good attendance to virus issues
Thank you for the review, we appreciate your feedback!
During the pandemic, we are cautious diners venturing out only to places that are careful with social distancing or outdoor dining. Avanti has both. Their wine flights are a fun way to compare wines and try new ones. They are very reasonably priced. The arancini were great on this visit. The linguini with clam sauce was full of clams and my husband enjoyed it greatly. The Avanti Pollo was a generous portion with great broccolini. The Cesar was crisp romaine, light on the dressing and heavy on the parmesan (perfect). Pilar was attentive, efficient and non-obtrusive. Thank you!
Thank you for taking the time to review us, we really appreciate your feedback! Hope to serve you again soon.
My food was under cooked. The pork was only edible around the edges. The potatoes were hard as was the broccoli .
Very good food, service a bit slow but good, live music and patio ambiance Excellent, a bit on the high price level. Overall good, will come back!
Thank you for the review, we appreciate your feedback.
Fantastic experience, amazing food and service
Thank you! We hope to serve you again soon.
We love Avanti’s. Food and service are always good. We’re there at least 3-4 times a month. Thank you Avanti’s for the delicious food and great service.
Thank you for the kind review!
The food and atmosphere are impeccable here. The service is top notch and it is well worth the visit. We sat outside and it’s a beautiful area with live music. (We went on a Saturday). We had two appetizers to start. The smoked buratta and the muscles. Both were amazing. The smoky flavor of the cheese was something I had never had before.
My husband ordered the short rib and I had the linguini with clams. Both had amazing taste. The short rib was cooked perfectly. Melt in your mouth perfectly. We highly recommend Avanti and cannot talk about the food, service, and atmosphere enough. Go try it out!
Thank you for the review, we hope to serve you again soon.
We really enjoyed our lunch. We had an excellent waiter and the fool was delicious.
Jan- we are happy to know you had a nice experience! Do you remember your servers name?
Nice addition to the Creekside area. Food was very good - we had the caprese salad with prosciutto, a filet and sea bass. All delicious. The waiter was very nice. The problem was the drinks came very slow as did our first course. We weren’t in a rush but our drinks and salad were oddly delayed
Would go back and would try to stay on patio. Nice ambience
Thank you for taking the time to review us, your comments about the drinks are noted! We do hope to serve you again soon.
Very nice location and setup, inside or outside is fantastic. Food was good and reasonably priced and the service outstanding. Highly recommend.
We are so happy to know you enjoyed your experience and hope to serve you again soon.
Great food and service
Thank you for the FIVE-STARS!
Good food and a great selection of wines from various countries. Very cozy setting with both indoor and patio seating. Would have been better if some Italiano themed music were playing, but overall very nice.

Thank you for the review, we are happy to know you had an amazing experience!
I hadn’t been to Avanti for awhile and wanted to try it out again. The setting is lovely, so happy to see a votive on the table and the music was perfectly background. Social distancing was excellent. We tried a red and a white wine flight — great selections and lots of fun. The Caesar salad was very good; the arugula came with dressing though I requested it on the side. It was promptly replaced. Needed more heirloom tomatoes. Lots of arugula! The shrimp with linguini was delightful! Service was attentive without hovering. We had plenty of space for a long conversation. Thank you for a fine experience!
Thank you for giving us another try, we hope to serve you again soon, and appreciate you taking the time to review us.
Celebrated a birthday dinner for 5. Our waitress Pilar took great care of us. The food was fantastic- arancini & calamari & gnocchi. The music outside from Take 2 created the perfect celebratory ambience. Love Avanti!
Thank you for the review! We are happy to know you enjoyed your meal and service from Pilar.
We’re from Philly and friends in Houston suggested the place.
Great space, ambience, service and food. Our top notch server was Rudy. Solid wine list. Modifications to orders were performed happily and superbly crafted in the kitchen.
Excellent all around.
Thank you for sharing your review, we appreciate you and your feedback!
Amazing and delicious brunch!
Thank you! Please come back to dine with us again soon.
We frequent their other location via Emilia and only have great things to say ..moved from nyc recently and finding authentic Italian has been challenging..these 2 places are a home run ..although on the more expensive side it’s definitely worth it .
Thank you so much! We appreciate your business.
Great food, great ambience, great owners. Always a favorite when we are in The Woodlands.
Thank you for taking the time to review us, and for your business. We are happy to know you enjoyed your dining experience with us.
They have done a great job of social Distanceing with great service. Look forward to visiting again.
Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate you! Hope you can make it back again soon.
The receptionist was unfriendly, the service even worst as we waited almost an hour for our entrees to be served. 30 minutes to get the wine list. One of the staff wearing an orange outfit was doing all the jobs, moving tables, setting tables up, the rest of the staff was inexperienced and not doing their job. I saw waiters asking patrons if what they were carrying was for them!!!!!!
Patrick- We are so sorry to know you had a bad experience, and plan to address this with our management team ASAP.
Loved the dinner and the atmosphere. I cannot wait to go again!
We are so happy to know you had a nice experience, Rebecca! Please come back to see us again soon. We have live music on the patio this weekend and the weather should be perfect.
Avanti is always a pleasure. Now that they have live entertainment on the patio, it’s even better. Food was great. Drinks were great, especially the espresso martini! Twice in two weekends says it all. Great job Avanti!!!
Thank you for the review! We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you again soon. We will have live music again this weekend and the weather should be perfect. Come see us!

Biggest concern these days is how restaurant handles social distancing and Avanti did great job of honoring and respecting our request. Justin a great server and highly recommend Branzino!

The food was excellent! My husband had the branzino, and he said it was wonderful! The remaining three people in our party each had the Pollo Avanti, and it was one of the best chicken dishes I've ever had! We also had a great waiter who was personable and professional. We'll be returning soon!
