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

Went to Avanzare based on a recommendation from a friend. Always looking for great Italian food and decided the 45 minute drive from where we live was worth a shot. We made a reservation and were seated right away when we arrived. The ambiance was very nice and warm. We were given the menu and the early dining ($15.50) menu.... More

Making a reservation was a hassle. Open Table said no tables available (a week ahead of time), but then a call to the answering machine got a call back. Midweek called to ask a question about a birthday dessert and they were exceptionally unhelpful, almost to the point of rudeness, and then the day of the reservation they called to... More

My husband and I are always looking for great food and service in vero beach. I don't care as much about an ocean view. Let's face it, if the food isn't great, the view won't make it any better, but if the food is great, you won't care about the view. We have been to Avanzare three times now, and... More

Avanzare has it all with respect to the food. Those from out of town may question the decor. For me, great, fresh food and service rules. See my other reviews for beautiful decor and mediocre food. Avanzare is consistent and delicious. Where do I start? Olives, wedge salad, grilled Cesar, homemade soup. That is to start. The main dishes are... More

We loved this new (to us) restaurant. Our waiter was so fun to chat with and did a great job as well. Great food. The lasagna is outstanding - good wines as well.
