Last time I was at Avanti's it was very good- next time not so good. The ribs are good but had a pizza one night and it was cold and lacked flavor.

Sarah, our server, was fabulous!! Lots of fun, energetic and very personable :) ~ definitely the best part of our experience! My husband had a large Greek, grilled chicken salad which he enjoyed and I had 1/2 rack of bbq ribs which were really tender, fall of the bone and delicious ... nice size portions of both meals. My only... More

First off the staff and the service were great and friendly. The table wondering magician was awesome!Unfortunately the food was bland. I had the chicken parmesan and while the breast was cooked perfectly, as well as the pasta, there just was absolutely no seasoning or flavor to the chicken or the pasta sauce (which is house made). My wife had... More

Our party of five ate here for my birthday last week (July 29th). The food arrived in a timely fashion. The salads & bread were tasty & fresh. My margarita was hand-delivered to our table by the bartender with good humor & it was perfect. Service was excellent. I ordered chicken piccata with lemon cream sauce & capers. It was... More

I went to Avanti with two close friends for dinner and it was fantastic! I had never been there before, but they had and told me how good it was. We tried Miguel's spicy shrimp as an appetizer, which was really good (and pretty spicy!), and my one friend and I shared the Chicken Picatta and the Shrimp Scampi Ravioli,... More

Have to review Avanti's again! LOVE this place. Can't say anything bad. Everyone who works there is very nice and always happy to see us when we come in. The bar area is the place to eat at. We love the ribs and yes the meatballs! It's a JEM of a restaurant!

Avanti's is a regular eating place for us. Solid, consistent food and not over-priced. Staff is great and friendly. Nice, varied menu of Italian fare. One of our favorites in our area.

I happened to visit this restaurant on a pretty slow night. Sat at the bar for a cocktail before dinner and I learned that our bartender just started and is used to working at a bar that serves mostly beer. So, I had to explain to the bartender how to make my drink. Wow! I don't remember what I ate... More
