Be sure to visit Avanzare when you are in Vero

One of the best places to eat in Vero. The owner is an absolute pleasure and will make you feel at home everytime! You get the feeling he really wants you to enjoy your meal. The outside could be a little more inviting in my opinion, but inside is nicely done.

This restaurant is simply wonderful. Every time I call to make a reservation I am excited and look forward to a wonderful dining experience. The food is wonderful and the service is impeccable. I didn't find it pricey compared to other local Italian restaurants. The pasta is homemade and wonderful. Just made our reservations for this evening. Great food and... More

Excellent Northern Italian and Tuscan food including: grilled meat, seafood and pasta. The quality of the food is excellent. Located in downtown Vero, it's a great place to land after the gallery stroll on a Friday evening, if you can get a seat. Plan ahead and make a reservation.

Visited based on good reviews. Had the short rib lasagna - tasty but not what I would classify as Italian. Service was very good. Had the grilled Caesar salad also very good. The only negative was that the decor was dated and the menu limited. It was also pricey. One beer, a salad and the lasagna was $40... Otherwise good... More

Went here for the first time this past weekend. We had the veal T Bone, potato and sausage soup, artichoke francese and short rib lasagna. Everything was delicious! Our waiter, Bruce, was very knowledgeable and friendly. Nice portions too. Dinner for two, without dessert, came to $100, with tip.

Have been to this restaurant so many times over the years. Always enjoy the food and friendly service very much. Sounds odd but I dislike the lighting. It always seems too dark in the dining room. The second dining room I would say the same and it is a bit claustrophobic as there are no windows. The food is consistently... More

We go to Vero every September. It is our saturday night destination. The food is so good! The lasagna is to die for. I even loved the Apple Carmel sorbet they served. This place never disappoints! Make a reservation, you will not be sorry!

Another member of my party ordered a gluten free item and yet had a reaction. Either one of the ingredients had gluten or there was cross contamination. Manager checked with the kitchen and they assured him that there was no gluten.

Very good food and the wait staff is top notch. I had the Braised Short Rib Lasagna, which is an Italian take on an open face roast beef, and it was excellent. My wife had the Parmesan Crusted Chicken which was great also. The wait staff was very attentive and brought out samples of a few items. Wonderful experience and... More

When our Italian friends join us for dinner, there is not other choice but Avanzare. It is unlike any other Italian restaurant in Vero Beach. The owner, staff, food, wine, and service are all perfect. We always have our Italian friends choose the best bottle of wine from the list, and we are all always satisfied. If you want the... More
