A very nice night out. Great food, dessert and live music. The Pollo Avanti is excellent. the flavor balance is perfect.
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!

One of my favorites restaurants in The Woodlands. Besides the wonderful food, the staff is very nice and the ambience cozy. I recomend
Thank you! We do have a rock star staff, and appreciate your kind words. Hope you can make it back soon.
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!
Thank you for the kind words! We are so happy to know you enjoyed our cuisine, and hope to serve you again soon.
Met a friend for wine and appetizers. The wine flight was fabulous and well paired.
We are happy you enjoyed our food and wine! Hope to serve you again soon.
We went here last night for dinner and had a wonderful time. Pilar took care of us - and her service was outstanding. Everyone at this restaurant is wonderful (Michelle was the manager last night that stopped by our table to make sure everything was okay) - attentive and very mindful of the current restrictions in place. The cocktails are amazing. We tried the limencello cake for dessert and I highly recommend it -truly delicious. The only item that I felt was sub-par was the bruschetta - the topping was very nice but the crostini (bread) was quite chewy - it felt the bread may have been stale. Other than that, their focaccia (which is complimentary) and arancini are some of the best I have had. I highly recommend this place.
Thank you for your business, and thank you for taking the time to review us! We are so happy you enjoyed your dining experience with us, and look forward to serving you again soon.
The lamb and sea bass were fantastic. Service and wine was exceptional. Love this place.

Great family owned Italian restaurant and sister to Via Emilia. Amazing outdoor seating on patio and live music, superb wine list and awesome food.
Thank you for your business and for taking the time to review us! We are pleased to know you had a nice experience.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening out. The food was absolutely delicious. We started with an excellent wine flight and appetizer (carpaccio). The main course was amazing (I had black truffle pasta & my partner enjoyed the lamb).
We will definitely be coming back.
Thank you for letting us know how we are doing! We hope to serve you again soon.
Amazing food and service. We’ll be back!
Thank you for the STARS!
The food, service and management were outstanding! The live music outside was icing on the cake. We will be back!

Service was wonderful and accommodating
Food was very good and the portions very large.
We were pleasantly surprised with the wine flights ... they did not skimp on portions and the wine wasn’t “old”

Absolutely a charming restaurant!

Wayne- we are so happy to know you had a nice experience and look forward to serving you again soon!
This place is really nice My Cesare Salad was excellent, my wife had the Panzanella added chicken and really enjoyed if. But my Pappardella Bolognese was just drenched in sauce I love the big noodles but the sauce not good I was left with a soup after I picked through noodles and it wasn't hot really should have sent back but it was so cold in the restaurant I was looking for a fast exit. I did ask waiter about sauce that Bolognese sauce is made different depending what region it was from not sure what that means in this case. But from the picture on website look nothing like the soup noodles I got. Might go back and try something else because it was a nice place but will definitely bring a jacket being ice cold while trying to eat is a thumbs down for me....

Went to dinner with wife for a Anniversary. Except for the issues regarding Covid, everything was exceptional, from the Champagne flight through desert. Calamari was fantastic!
Thank you for choosing to celebrate your special day with us! Cheers to many more wonderful years together!
I’ve consistently had many delicious meals at Avanti, and highly recommended it when you want a nice evening out with family or friends. We’ve safely dined in-person and have also done take-out, so we’ve tried several different things on the menu, and all of them have tasted amazing, from appetizers to main dishes to dessert! They have an interesting selection of wine flights that are fun to try and discover new wines. They also have a cozy little space for outdoor seating, a nice bar area, and sometimes have a piano player entertaining the restaurant. We’ve always had excellent service, as well! Easily five stars!
Thank you for taking the time to review us, it's nice to receive this positive feedback!! We hope to serve you again soon.
We had an amazing experience here. The piano music set a great ambiance, the food was amazing, and the bartender went above and beyond to make a drink I loved.
Well this is music to our ears, we are happy to know you enjoyed your experience! We will have live music this weekend, you should come out and see us!
