Fantastic Dining Experience

From the moment we walked in our server Steve took us on a gastronomic tour of Italy . His impeccable service coupled with the best Italian food anywhere in the area we had an outstanding experience.

Decided to try Avanzare for my husband's birthday dinner. Made reservations and we were seated in the bar area which was fine with us. We had an excellent server and she was very attentive for the entire meal without being annoying. Courses were timed perfectly. We shared the parmesan souffle with drunken mushrooms for an appetizer. Hubby ordered zuppa di... More

Our good friends took us there for the first time during our last visit to Florida. The service was fantastic, prices were reasonable and I am still thinking about my veal chop and the best french fried potatoes that I think I've ever had in a restaurant. This will be the first restaurant that I will request we return to... More

Based on a recommendation from my foodie cousin we made reservations for an early dinner at Avanzare. We had old and dear out of town guests visiting and wanted a special meal for them. Avanzare did not disappoint on any front. I must admit I am the most adventurous of the four of us, so after being promptly seated, offered... More

Went here with the parents, had been hearing a lot of good things about this place so we gave it a try. I ordered a grog, a powerful tasting drink and I swear I think I felt my liver recoil. Martinis were perfect though. My wife ordered the veal saltimbocca which did not jump in the mouth. I think the... More

Enjoyed dinner with friends this evening. We have not been here in several months, and are wondering why we stayed away so long. The seared sea scallops were outstanding. The Parmesan soufflé appetizer was a fluffy cloud of flavor in a mushroom sauce. Service was prompt and courteous even though the place was full. Few places can manage to maintain... More

We went with a group of 7 and all loved our meals. The pasta is made in house. I had the lasagna grilled Caesar salad and loved them both. Reasonably priced wine list too.

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 waiter... 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
