our hotel concierge recommended this Italian restaurant. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts were delicious. My only complaint is that I asked for decaf coffee and obviously got regular as I thought my heart was going to explode @11:30 later that night.

An amazing dining experience including excellent food. I recommend the Beef short rib with polenta. The Greek (yes, greek) salad is great. The pasta dishes were perfect. Calamari and mussels, yum. I don't have a negative. Be sure to make a reservation!

I love Avanti. I've been here many times and it's one of my favorite restaurants. I will continue coming here many more times ! My favorite dish is the crab crusted sea bass. So delicious !

Avanti is our top 3 places in Dallas. Don't skip out on the carpaccio and carbonara. Half off wines on Mondays...Tulip wine is a must! Cheers, R.Cohen

What an enchanting hidden little gem. Best bolognese I have had outside of Rome! I was very impressed to not see one, but two managers working on Christmas and running everything smooth like pros. Can't wait to eat here again!!

I didn't notice. My best bet would be to just call the restaurant and ask before you go. I hope you make it out there!
