An Italian Restaurant Gem

Great service by the brothers that run the restaurant. They cooked all food to order. We enjoyed every bite immensely!

The two brothers run this place like Nonna's kitchen. If you want good home cooked food and lots of it, this is the place! Although it is not Haute Cuisine the food is ample and tasty. You can feed a large group without breaking the bank! Highly recommended.

We read several reviews of how wonderful and intimate this restaurant is, it was anything but. The food was all fried and mostly tasteless and there is no intimacy about this place, just one large noisy room. The pasta was good but the chicken parm and eggplant parm were a disappointment.

Dear unsatisfied customers I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for you unexpected visit to avanti. Unfortunately we have no control on the customers that attend and how loud they are. We do encourage family dinners and love people to enjoy themselves and have good times. We do have a large menu to choose from and some of... More

The food is always superb, the staff is prompt and courteous. I have been to Avanti for many functions and dinners and had them cater a business lunch today and everyone raved about the food!

We love going to Maggiano's in Michigan and we heard about Avanti and their similar dining option so we went on Friday for dinner. We were interested in the family style for $25. It's all-you-can-eat salad, app, pasta and meat. The food was pretty good. We started with rice balls and deep fried mushrooms. Next, we had the house salad,... More

In the past,when I have truly enjoyed a meal,it was when the food tasted just like my Italian mother used to make.Avanti has done this and beyond!! Ristorante Avanti has surpassed my expectations and my husband and I continue to be regular customers. The only disadvantage is that this restaurant only opens after 5 pm unless you are having a...

We've been there many times over the years! Time for a visit...it's a very cozy romantic Italian Style setting like you're in Italy ... BUT the main reason for eating out is the food correct? Food is "excellent", fresh authentic and prices do not damage your wallet ... owners are the chefs, brilliant! Rated 11 out of 10.

My husband and I went to Avanti on Saturday for Valentines Day and were thoroughly impressed. Although completely full,the ambiance was quaint, cozy and intimately romantic. The service was friendly and professional, and not once did we feel an urgency by the staff to leave. And then there's the food...oh. my. word. Everything is prepared fresh and you could taste...
