On the whole good food for the price

I had not been to Avanzare for a while and went with a friend for the Early Bird dinner for $16. We made a reservation and were seated immediately. However, even though we were there at 5:15, we were given only the regular menu and not the Early Bird menu with it. We had to ask for that. The... read more

Start with the minuses, the store front paint job is rather garish. The colors are Tuscan, but looks nothing like any place, I've seen in Italy . My dinner salmon with asparagus over risotto, The asparagus looked like green strings, and did'n't taste much better, the risotto, could have been smoother. Enough said about the negatives. The interior of the... More

I've eaten here many times over the years but since they got a new manager running the front of the restaurant (about 18 months ago) the customer service and customer experience has declined greatly. Most dishes are superb but the wait service is poor and the restaurant/management are not at all accommodating or looking to provide exemplary customer service. I... More

I can not say enough about the Filet Gorgonzola, the Parmesan Crusted Chicken, The Mussels, the grilled cesar has just a hint of the grill flavor and is excellent. Parmesan Souffle, Grapefruit grilled with Shrimp, Bread is fresh and Warm, Short Rib Lasagna was just great, I had enough to have a whole extra meal. The Filet was done to... More

We sat at the bar and had great service with John. I had the short rib lasagna...too good to eat the whole thing in one sitting. My husband had the veal chop which was magnificent both to look at and eat. Our friend, a regular, favors anything Bolognese.

Our first visit to Avanzare well recommended was not disappointed. The bartender Chris made us feel very welcomed. We sat at the bar although it was a bit tight. We met some great people, and had a wonderful night. Beyond that, the food was absolutely delicious. Appetizers artichoke franchise was tender and flavorful. Short rib lasagne was to die for....

I ordered Eggplant Parmesan, which was delicious and enough for three people! Hubby ordered (homemade) Shrimp Ravioli and said it was excellent. A wonderful accompaniment to our meal was the superb service we received from Bruce! If we were locals, we would surely return often and request a table in Bruce's section.

Avanzare is deceptive. From the outside, it looks like an ordinary Italian restaurant that one might find in any neighborhood. But go inside and the food is hardly ordinary. It is excellent, at times superb, northern Italian food. Each dish that my friends and I tried was unique unto itself and put together with a delicious combination of ingredients, seasonings...

Very busy on New Year's Eve, we didn't have reservations, so we sat at the bar. We had excellent service and great dish recommendations. The bartender was great, he gave us the history of the restaurant, and the dishes we chose were delicious. Salad was cold and crisp, great dressing. My Egg Plant Parmigiano was excellent. Can't wait to go... More
