Reasonable prices sounds like a poor way to endorse an eatery, but they are. Tasty Italian food from appetizers to entrees. Very good ceviche, salads could improve a little, entrees are nicely done. Would definitely go again. Good wine selection - always a positive.

We went here before a show at Winspear--and glad we found it! The food was delicious! And the service was great! My husband had a champagne/citrus chicken--which he would like me to try re-create at home! I had the salmon special, which was stuffed with spinach and crabmeat---some of the best salmon I have ever had! The service was excellent and the prices right! We will definitely come back!

Enjoyed a nice steak at this restaurant; overall, the food was enjoyable albeit a bit pricey. Our waiter was absolutely fabulous; prompt and personable. Nice wine list, live music later in the evening on Saturday night, good tiramisu....overall, nice night out.

Avanti Ristorante has always been one of my favorite places to go the first night I travel to Dallas on business. The last time I was dissatisfied with my dish I always order, the seafood pasta dish.
There were maybe three tiny scallops, three shrimp, four little mussels and the rest was all calamari. I have ordered this many times and love it but this time very few ingredients. I mentioned this to my waiter and all he could say was "I will let the chef know". I left very disappointed. Not sure if I will return as they didn't seem to care and I have been there numerous times over the past years.

This place is very small and intimate. Great for a romantic dinner. They had live music (one man band) and great service. Food was well for the price. Be sure to make a reservation if you are interested in going.
