We stopped on a Saturday night in our belief it was a higher class Italian restaurant as it portrays itself. Once inside we were greeted by a middle aged bro wearing flip flops, shorts, a baseball hat, and the outdated hemp necklace. His appearance was inappropriate for the venue (not to mention his age) and was working behind the bar.... More

We live in Verona and are great supporters of local restaurants.Therefore, ever so often we like to give it another try. We are beyond disappointed EVERY time. Last night was the last time we will ever step foot into this restaurant. They were out of water glasses. Imagine that! This happens every time we go! Took forever to just get... More

The food was good but a little pricy at night. The beer was $5 a glass. Hard to find parking. The service was great.

I ordered a pasta dish and the sauce was too heavy for the angel pasta it came with and it really lacked in taste. I will not go back.

This was one of the worst dining experiences we've had. The service is slow, bland and our server smelled of cigarettes. Other than the bar the restaurant is ugly and feels old and dirty. The food is lousy and expensive. Save your money and it elsewhere.

This is an Italian restaurant. Small town family owned and real Italian cuisine. Prices were very reasonable and the food was delicious. With seven of us, we had a quite a variety, and everyone loved their meal. Quaint and cozy! We'll be back!

Avanti's is an Italian restaurant with great spaghetti and lasagna! It is small and cozy with a wonderful and friendly staff. But back to the ribs. They had a ton of meat on them. I got a full rack; about $22.00, and my husband and I had them for 2 meals. We are not light eaters and we love meat.... More

We live in Verona and would like to dine sometimes where we live. Tonight we went to Avanti with our two children hoping for a decent Friday night meal. Our bar is pretty low when we are with the children if that gives you any context. The service was downright terrible. It took the waitress a long time to take... More

Went with a rather large group of 8, I ordered the lasagna special and I didn't particularly care for it but another member of the group ordered the same and he loved it so guess it's just a matter of taste. Service was good when we were there but granted, we were practically the only ones in the restaurant the... More

What's with the picture? Certainly isn't the outside of Avanti's. The ribs are awesome, service is ok. I think it's expensive for what you get.
