We found this little gem around 6-7 years ago after bowling in a tournament on a Sunday evening. Located in a college town, there are a lot of places not open on Sunday evening. Not only was it convenient, but the cuisine was outstanding, from the service (Ben is normally our waiter), to the wine list, to the awesome entrees,... More

My two sons surprised me with a special evening and dinner with family and friends at Avanzare Italian Restaurant. The service was outstanding, and food to die for. I am told we were not suing menu, but "Family Style" selected by the owner / chef. It was all great and glad we got to experience it.

Great little restaurant. Food always prepared fresh. All sauces homemade. They will always accommodate whatever substitution you want to make. Staff is very helpful and friendly - good wine list. It is our neighborhood go to restaurant. Love this restaurant.

Best Italian restaurant I have been to in Springfield! We were seated right away and promptly served. Our waitress was so friendly and very accommodating and the food was excellent, you really can't go wrong with what you choose. We will definitely be back to Avanzare!

Great Italian restaurant! We primarily picked this restaurant because we could make a reservation for a group of 14. It had pretty good reviews. We found it to be outstanding! It's in a mall setting and walking in, you'll think you've entered a bar. We were seated in a back room all to ourselves. We had one server but he... More

We've gone to Avanzare's for the last three years on our anniversary. Every time the food and service has been outstanding - oddly enough we've had the same waiter (Ben) all three times and he's extremely good at what he does. Unfortunately this will be our last year going simply because it's SO noisy. We were unable to have any... More

First of all the bread they serve is super delicious, served with herb butter. My mahi mahi was cooked very well, although the dish could've used more flavor. My husband was a bit disappointed that his tortellini was not homemade, but the menu did not specify they make the tortellini themselves. Next time we will make sure to pick a... More

The food was well-prepared but not to our taste. For example, the lasagna resembled a Mexican dish, both in appearance and taste, than Italian. My fish special was good but not rave-worthy. The service was attentive but not friendly.
