    The food was fine but we had to wait over 45 minutes after ordering to get it, while other tables seated after us were served well before us.

    Each time I visit I try something new - the stuffed pork chop was tasty - the hit of the evening was the whitefish - perfection. The walleye wasn't far behind. Not just a red sauce eatery, fine service, knowledgeable staff, caring ownership and a generous menu combine to make this a go-to dining destination. Keep up the good attitude - and good work.

    The 4 of us had another wonderful dinner Friday at your very busy restaurant. The Lasagna and the Scallop Special were the 2 favorites at our table. Our waitress was super busy however, had plenty of time and the appropriate attention to our table. Roberto was crazy being bar tender however did not miss a minute to friendly greet all his customers. Such a happy place thank you!

    Avenzare is consistently good, both in quality of food and service. On the night we were there a large wedding party filled the main dining area. Despite that the service remained timely and the entrees arrived in a reasonable amount of time.

    Welcoming staff, great service and Riccardo (Owner/Manager) was very helpful in pairing a very good, reasonably priced glasses of wine from his personally curated wine list. That said ... all is secondary to the great dinner. Avenzare pizza to start, Lasagna like homemade, Bucatini Carbonara (egg yolk perfect!) and Sea Bass all of the best we've had. Will return ...

    Very disappointed. We went for a special dinner to celebrate our anniversary. My reservation indicated the special event, and asked for a quiet table, as my husband wears hearing aids and cannot hear with a lot of ambient noise. When they called to confirm the reservation, they confirmed they'd received my request. Upon arrival, we were seated next to a table that was set for a party of 8. We didn't notice until the party arrived, at which point we already had our food and it was too late for us to move. The food was overcooked and over-salted. Our anniversary was never acknowledged. And the ladies' room floor was littered with paper towels. Definitely not the experience we expected based on the reviews. We will not be back.

    Ricardo and his staff never disappoint. We have been going here since they opened and have never had a bad experience. We took 4 of our friends there last night and they loved it. George was our waiter and he was great as always. He provided some great wine and drink recommendations and a great sense of humor with it. The pasta and other dishes are always fantastic and cooked perfectly. We will continue to go and bring new friends with us. It's definitely one of our favorites.

    We had a going away party for friends on the patio. It was really nice place for conversation and lots of great food, drinks and dessert. We ordered a lot of appetizers that we shared. They were all fantastic, Fritto Misto, grilled calamari, prosciutto and melon, burrata, roasted cauliflower and polpete. Pasta is a great choice. many in our group ordered different Italian specialities, I had the Branzino in lemon butter with capers and green beans. It was terrific! Perfectly done! The service at this restaurant is always above par. We were well taken care of!! Thanks, Avanzare!

    We celebrated my husband's birthday while in the area from another state. This restaurant is a quintessential old school Italian restaurant. The menu features many fresh pastas, woodfire pizza and so much more. We enjoyed the stuffed zucchini blossoms, beef carpaccio, soft shell crab and gnocchi with vodka sauce. We felt like we were in Italy! The staff made excellent recommendations on food and wine and the service was impeccable. Well worthy of your next dining out experience!
