This place was recommended by the concierge in our hotel, best meal of the trip. The service was extremely prompt and the food was just outstanding. My husband had the seafood ravioli and he is still talking about it a week later. I would go here again and again, if only I lived in Dallas!

The food here was superb, and the service was unbelievably good for our group of 24 at 2 tables. Some of us in the group were having our meal paid for by our organization, and others weren't. The waiter even prepared individual checks for those who were paying for their own meals. This is almost unheard of. I had the... More

We were in Dallas for a convention and went here on a Saturday night. We were seated in the dining room near the wall to the patio, and although the restaurant was packed we still felt that the atmosphere was romantic and intimate. We especially enjoyed the guitar music performed by live musicians positioned fairly close to us. Thank you... More

Pasta dishes were terrific. The bolognese was about the best I've had. Wine list not exceptional but workable. Nice intimate atmosphere. Excellent place.

We went to Avanti for our first meal in Texas, having landed from the UK a couple of hours earlier. We weren't hungry enough for mains, so just tucked into some wonderful appetisers (which were meals in there own right). These were beautifully fresh and well presented would go back if we are ever back in Dallas

Fantastic Italian dinner with my wife this past Friday evening! We started with Stuffed Mushrooms Floentine and they were great. I ordered the Spinach Lasagna, but opted for only Marinara and not the combo sauce with Bechamel & Marinara. For me it was perfectly prepared. Great flavors and you could tell the spinach was fresh! My wife ordered had the... More

Avanti Restaurant has been our favorite bistro for 20 years. We found this gem in the 90’s when we lived in Dallas, and we remained loyal customers despite our move to a neighboring state. That sums up how special this place is! Its size is perfect for a quiet meal, either in the dining room or the patio, which is... More

Went here tonight.. My steak was amazing my husbands chicken parm was just ok. There is barely any sauce on it and had to ask for some on the side. The waiter is very friendly until he takes your order and then no where to be found. Prices were reasonable cute place but won't be going back.
