Great Italian dinner

Amazing food and wine selection. A little noisy up front. Recommend getting a table towards the back.

Avanzare was always our most special place to go when we wanted an over the top special evening out. For some reason or the other we had not been there for awhile until the other evening when we went again. The service was great as always and the decor seems to have somehow been improved. However the Lasanga, the house... More

My husband and I sat at the bar and thought we just wanted a glass of wine. We ended up ordering an entree and had one of the best pasta dishes we have had in a long time. Atmosphere is very relaxed and the food is delicious.

Avanzare is a favorite of ours. For this reason, we decided to celebrate our Anniversary there this year. We called for reservations, not only to reserve a time, but my husband loves the Veal Parmigiana and it is not on the menu and always available without prior notice. Also, we enjoy the atmosphere of the cozy booths instead of the... More

We went to Avanzare for our 19th Wedding Anniversary. We asked to be seated outside as it was a lovely evening. The waitress was so attentive and nice. Helped us make our selections and brought us a bottle of wine. The food was fantastic as always. I highly recommend the spinchetta for an appetizer as well as the pepperoni bread!... More

I've loved this place for ages. So... The location will throw you for a loop (strip mall), but don't let that deter you. Must try items: scampi al Lorenzo appetizer or Caprese salad when in season. The special entrees of the evening are usually fabulous, the Marsala or ribeye with gargonzola are also staples. The servers are also very wine... More

The location is not the best [in a strip mall] but once inside you will forget about it. I had the rack of lamb with roasted potatoes and it was tender and delicious. Just what I needed after a day's work. I will probably go back tonight to try one of their specials.

I've been to Avanzare a couple times for dinner, but the prices keep me from going as often as I'd like. Now they have the perfect solution - Lunch! They're only open M-F for lunch, but it is well worth it. I ordered spinach and ricotta stuffed ravioli while my companions ordered chicken fettuccine Alfredo and lasagna. Everything was amazing....
