Pasta e Fagioli
My family and I have been going to Avanti for many years. The food is always wonderful and if you don't see what you want on the menu which is hard to do because there is a lot of great items on the menu, The chef can usually make something special. If you are looking for authentic Italian cuisine, Avanti would be a great choice.
Excellent food! We love their meat lasagna, and osso bucco, and Charles is a fabulous piano player!
Avanti’s is always a great experience. We love everything about it!
Osso Bucco was out of this world, Filet of Sole was just as good.
We always feel like we are very important when we dine at Avanti. Everyone from Angelo down greets us and checks on us to make sure everything is great, and it always is. We love it there!
We hadn't been here in a while as we weren't impressed with our last experience a couple of years ago. I'm so glad we gave them another shot. The food was so good, the service (yes, you, Sergio!) was amazing. We loved it so much, we reserved our next visit while we were still seated at our table (thank you. OpenTable)!
Dont often get Gnocchi as I find it a bit heavy for a meal. However, Avantis is excellent, very light in texture and actually could have eaten more. Oso Bucco is always great and love the bar atmosphere. Only drawback was I went on a Sunday evening and missed the piano player in the lounge.
Always a good experience but sadly like everywhere else it seemed under staffed. Our server tried really hard to make it special and he did although he was very busy. We will definitely be back as this is a family favorite and always such a great time. I hope that people go back to work!
Real Authentic food and top notch service!!
With superb food, service, and ambience (lighting and music), Avanti is a great place to relax and visit with friends and family.
The Chef who was also hosting that night never asked if we had a reservation. May or may not have even greater us just asked how many. Pointed out to the dining room and said take the booth over there.
Prices for wine were way outside the normal for a restaurant and only one brand for glass pours.
When he dropped of bread he prefaced it by saying “extra crispy” and “if we don’t like it that’s our fault”. It was black on one side.
Our server was not terrible but wine service wasn’t the best. Touching bottles to the glass and just kind of hovering over us.
The food was veal was mediocre at best. Bland and unappealing.
The kicker is the next day we get food poising.
Atmosphere is strait out of the 1980s right down to the zebra print booths and giant rose pairings? I don’t know what else to call them and of coarse mirrors everywhere.
I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.
Nathanael was an amazing server
I am surprised by all of the positive reviews on this place. The food just wasn’t very good.
We had such an amazing time! We booked this last minute and weren’t sure what to expect! Food was absolutely amazing service was great we had a great time!
Restaurant was closing early but honored our late reservation. Did and service were great. We'll be back
Amazing place for a date night I highly recommend it!!! Michael was an outstanding server which made the experience all the better!
We had a fantastic time! It is definitely an old style restaurant with autographs all over the place! Our waiter was kind, the drinks strong and the food was great!!
We were really looking forward to a nice traditional Italian dinner but we were disappointed. The service was confusing. There were three servers came to our table but that did not help the efficiency nor the speed of services.
If fact, things got worse when more dinner guests came in filled up the other tables, we were neglected. All servers moved over to take care of the late comers.
We had told all our servers that we want my soup and my husband’s mussels served at the same time. They brought my soup but the mussels was not severed until after my soup was getting cold and I had to finish it. My husband’s mussels were served after all other bigger tables got their foods.
By the time our entrees’ were served, other tables were all had their dinners and ready for after dinner cigarettes and dessert. My Eggplant Parmesan and my husband’s veal specify were average at best.
It took a while to get our bill after we already finished our dinner. We noticed that they charged two (2) dirty martinis but I only had one. It, again, took a while for them to correct the bill.
We really started with high expectations for this dinner but we got out with great disappointment.
We do not plan to go back to Avanti for our dinners. There are plenty of good Italian restaurants around Phoenix and Scottsdale areas. We enjoy dining out but Avanti will not be on our list.
My dad always talked about enjoying Avanti’s in the 80’s. Lots of wonderful moments. I thought let’s take dad for fathers dad!! Super fun to see all the movie star photos on the walls, and our waiter remembered all 5 of our orders without writing down a sing note. Food was full of flavor, I would recommend coming here for any special occasion you want to celebrate!
Amazing food! Loved the eggplant parm
We always have a great meal when we come to Avanti. Great service we even enjoyed the gentleman playing the piano in the bar. We always look forward to our next visit.
Great evening with excellent service and good food.
Avanti is a first class restaurant. The staff is always very professional . Geraldo is very attentive. We have been dining here since the late '70's . On this visit we had the fresh Grouper which was perfectly cooked.
It was decent
Best Italian food I ever had, love the food and service. And the owner is a sweetheart ! Until next trip Scottsdale, your Philly crew will be back soon !!
Always classically excellently executed Italian.PIANO BAR a huge plus
We celebrated my moms 60th last night and it was amazing! They were able to accommodate our large party in a nice private room and the service was amazing! Highly recommend.
Went for Easter brunch buffet Very tight in the ballroom, doors was open so flys we’re getting h into the buffet area on the food. Completely turned off.
The Mothers Day Brunch was excellent as was the service.
Went for a the Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet and it was such a disappointment. All of the staff was very unfriendly, the set up was very disorganized and the food was less than mediocre. The shrimp cocktail was extremely over cooked and rubbery, even the pasta dishes tasted like they were from something prepackaged, and to top it off majority of the desserts came from Costco since it was still in the original packaging. I will never be going back to this place.
Great food ! Charming Owner !
Overall a wonderful experience.
We love this restaurant and can understand why it's been in business for so many years!!!
The best food since I was in Greece and Italy area, and the best of service as well.
Best Italian in AZ. Consistency is the key at this Italian restaurant. I’m from the East Coast and no other restaurant in AZ comes close to authentic Italian food. Always a pleasure seeing Angelo, Sergio, and Andrew.
Ive been going to Avanti for over 16 years now and whether it’s just dinner out or a special occasion Avanti is always my top pick. Keep up the good work Fellas!!!!
First time here in 35 years and don't know why it took so long to return. It is now one of my favorites. Came for the Escargot and stayed for everything else. Food, service, atmosphere all outstanding. Sitting in bar next time.
This was our 3rd time to Avanti. We sit at the bar because we absolutely love the bartender, Mike. He is great and gives us recommendations on what to try and each dish has been amazing. Kudos to the chef as well. This visit was on a Saturday night and it was much busier than our previous visits. Mike seemed to do it all and made it look easy! We will go back for the service (Bartender Mike) and the food.
Absolutely wonderful from start to finish! Food is so good & the owner even stopped by our table to say hello. 10 on a scale of 1 to 10.
Phenomenal experience for my mom's bday dinner! Great place for really good food, great service, and nice atmosphere
Amazing!!! Service and food exceeded my expectations! Will definitely be returning!!!
Always great at Avanti's n our favorite restaurant. Thank you Avanti's
