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

I will make this short and to the point:...do yourself a favor and don't waste your time or money here. My husband is Italian and believe me, we have eaten at Italian restaurants everywhere. I looked at the reviews before making reservations and honestly don't know what all these people had for dinner that was so good.My husband had linguine... More

We have been to Avanzare many times. We have also been to most if not all of the Italian restaurants in Vero. This one may not have the best ambiance, but it does have the best food. The lasagna is different than any I have had anywhere and it is far better. Made with home made pasta and plenty of... More

Very small, very loud, and tight. My husbands escargot was served, had to flag down a waitress to ask about my soup which arrived about 5 minutes later and was lukewarm. The pasta was good but over cooked for my taste. The clincher came when we paid our bill with an unused gift card and credit card. Waitress came back... More

We had dinner with friends on Monday night and once again everything was wonderful. Malissa took excellent care of us throughout the entire evening. The couple we were with took advantage of the "Chef's Whim" which is a $25.00 5 to 6 course meal and loved it. If you decide to take advantage of this option, keep in mind they... More

We went with friends and took advantage of the early bird dinner special. We both had mussels for an appetizer that were very nice in a garlic butter sauce. I had veal picatta which was excellent and my friend has chicken parm, which he loved. The front of the place is very tacky and we were somewhat put off by... More

When we first walked in it was quite dark, I wasn't sure if I wanted to stay, but I sure am glad that we did! After awhile your eyes adjust to the lighting and then everything was perfect! They make their own pasta. The waitress recoommeded the lasagna bolognese for a first time visit because it is one of the... More
