“great Italian eatery.. early bird for $15!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Had a delicious meal here from their early bird menu and it was quite delicious. I ordered the shrimp scampi.. it was a bit different than shrimp scampi I have had other places but very tasty and plenty of shrimp with angel hair pasta. My appetizer was a bread/ tomato sauce. provolone melt.. the sauce was superb and overall a nice opening to my meal. Would definitely recommend this place. Service was very attentive on all counts and appears to get quite busy so go early or make a reservation.

“A Truely Tuscan Cuisine off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Stumbled upon this gem in downtown Vero Beach ...Took one look at the store front and said...Well maybe...Lets give it a try. The best thing we did in quite some time! We entered the reception area,which was quite small,but we were met by a very personable wait person who told us the host would be right with us. He arrived and we were seated promptly.The establishment appeard to be quite small,but on further investigation,there was plenty of space.
Between five and five thrity PM every day they have an early bird.Three course meal at a very reasonable price. Appetizer,salad,and main meal.
We were served by a very friendly and attentive wait person,(Margot) who seemed to be there right when you needed her to be.
The wait for the food was quite reasonable,considering that each part of the meal is made to order.No microwave!! Lots of bread with seasoned olive oil.Never had to ask for more.
If anybody asked me if this was excellant Italian, I would have no problem telling them they won't be disappointed.

“Best Homemade Italian Food In Vero Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

On our honeymoon, the attendants at the hotel that we stayed at suggested that we go to Avanzare. It is a small, mom & pop-type restaurant with the yummiest homemade Italian food. It was so great, that we returned to Vero for our 1-year anniversary and also went back to the restaurant. The service is extremely friendly! We highly recommend it!

“Good food but a little cramped and Loud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Very good Italian food but a somewhat limited menu. Had the baked oysters and pan seared scallops and they were very good. Unfortunately Avanzare is a smaller restaurant where the tables are closer together which doesn't provide much privacy. That night there seemed to be a couple of larger parties which were loud which made basic conversation difficult. Anyway, the food was very good with excellent presentation and the service was equally as good. This place is always booked and the location isn't the best so maybe it's time for a different location?

“Needs improvement inside and out!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Located in downtown Vero Beach in a building with an exterior which is not that all attractive. I have eaten in this place several times with mixed results. The menu has good variety and some dishes are tasty, but others leave a little to be desired. Short on value.
