Everything was wonderful! From the food to the impeccable service, all was top notch. The Wild boar Ragu was outstanding, as was the carbonara. Pizza is our favorite as well. Love the Frito Misto—best around; very light.
Awesome food and the owners are fabulous!
This has been out third time at Avanzare and once again, their food is delicious!! I had the gnocchi (made with ricotta) that were not heavy like potato gnocchi can be. My husband had the bucatini carbonara which was even better than my dish! Our server gave him the option to have the egg mixed in by the kitchen or he could mix it himself at the table - nice touch to be given the choice.
My only drawback is the atmosphere but I cannot hold the restaurant responsible as they are dealing within covid restrictions right now.
Our server and owners gave us great personnel attention that overcomes any atmosphere shortcomings!
Our waiter was Wonderful. He went above and beyond.
Back Room Tent Rocks!
Entertainment & Great Happy Hour Specials from 4~7pm!
The staff and managers are great. They do everything to make your experience the best every time..
Our lunch was delicious. Everything was cooked to perfection and the service was lovely. I can hardly wait to go back.
Great food and service!
Great food and service consistently!!!
Food was amazing, and customer service was top-notch. This place never disappoints.
Always amazing. Food and service are fantastic.
Amazing food as always. Ricardo, one of the owners, always talks to every diner every time we’ve been there. Food is so good. I had there lasagna (again). Best I’ve ever had including my own. My husband had the seafood over pasta. So good. And they had pumpkin cream brûlée. Wow. Please go and support this restaurant. You won’t regret it.
Our new #1 restaurant. Have eaten here over dozen times and have tried something different each time. Excellent soups, gazpacho, pumpkin, cucumber. Tempting specials. Can’t say enough. Owner Riccardo most gracious friendly host.
My wife and mother In law did not like there plates but the manager came over and got them new dishes. Food we had was outstanding. Service was good but we may have been a little difficult on our waiter. Nice guy. Manager was cool too. We’ve been here a few times and we will most certainly be back.
Nice, traditional Italian restaurant. Food was good. Service was quick. Prices were average. Overall, a nice evening.
Had a fantastic lunch of Gnocchi. The penna cotta for dessert was as good as I've had in Italy.
About 10th visit. Always different choice on menu, specials and appetizers always interesting.
Food excellent, good service. Owner very attentive and friendly
The food was great. Service was perfect. It was fun.
Avanzare is excellent! Like a little bit of Italy in Glen Ellyn.
The food was like canned ravioli. We spent $200 to throw away most of our meal!
Food was amazing! I am gluten free and there were many options to choose from. No issues afterwards. Will definitely go back
Great service and awesome food. Wine pretty good too.
Erik the entertainer, was excellent and made our evening most enjoyable! The food was excellent and the bottle of wine was delicious
First time dining here and I'm glad we did! Erika at the bar clearly was busy but that didn't stop her from taking care of us without missing a beat. She knew how to make a proper drink which is something a lot of bartenders do not know these days. I had one of their fish specials, branzino, which was absolutely delicious. My husband had another special, the lamb shank, and that was fall-off-the-bone delicious. I cannot wait to go back to slowly work my way through their menu! YUM! The kitchen and chef deserves a shout out because there was a large (20 people) party that was seated at the same time we were....I was so impressed that their food came out and then ours did right after. I would have understood a longer time until we got our meals but nope - they were on top of it all!
Avanzare has delicious food, tasty desserts, and great live music! We had a fun time on Wednesday nights dancing to many of our favorite tunes. Of course, the servers are exceptional.
Met some friends for lunch and had a great time! We started with a bruschetta appetizer which was very good. We also tried the Chicken Limone, Cavatelli w/vodka sauce and a Burger made with Wild Boar, Short Ribs and Angus Beef...everything was very good! The french fries that came with the burger were seasoned with Parmesan cheese and something else - not to my liking but the others enjoyed them!! Can’t please everyone!!
Will definitely go back!
Everything was delicious! And the service was awesome we will definitely be back!
Best Italian food in Western suburbs.
The food was okay but nothing special. We would have appreciated the waiter asking if we wanted a salad to go with our meal since it wasn't included. We thought like many Italian restaurants it might be a table salad but no salad was included or offered so that was disappointing.
We wanted outdoor seating but it was too cold outside so we ate inside. I am not comfortable being indoors with covid I was hoping they would have heaters for the outdoor patio.
It was my birthday and the service and food was spectacular... made us feel like we were the only people there
Very attentive and friendly service. The food is outstanding!! All 6 of us tried something different and each dish was delicious!!
Great food, but way too many bugs out on patio and in parking lot
The food was the amazing. The staff was super helpful and made great recommendations. Will be going again.
