Best Italian joint in Phoenix. I’ve been going here for 20 + years! Since I was a little girl and I will say it is still amazing food, amazing service, and the best ambiance. Favorite place in Phoenix!!
The restaurant Decour was a little dated, but overall great Italian restaurant with time proven entrées. I will also add that the chocolate mousse was the best I’ve ever had.
Charles Lewis is wonderful. Great musician. Great joy to listen to. The food and service were great as well.
As usual, dining at Avanti's was a treat. The ambiance has not lost any of its glitter over the many years, the food was magnificent and the service provided by Sergio was flat out superior.
We absolutely love Avanti and our waiter Michael! This was our second visit to Avanti. The food is amazing and they will make anything you want ! So far we haven’t had a dish that wasn’t amazing ! The eggplant rollentini and the mushroom risotto was a great way to start off our evening . Lasagna , chicken Francese , pappardelle beef braised pasta , fettuccine Alfredo chicken all dishes the best we’ve ever had!!! It was my birthday and they brought two amazing desserts “Tiramisu and chocolate mousse!!! Amazing !!!! Avanti is by far the best restaurant we have been to in all of the greater Phoenix area !!!
They confirmed our reservation for 9 people for my friend’s engagement dinner and when we showed up, they said all the chef’s had gone home.
We were very disappointed. Almost ruined a special day for someone.
Do not accept reservations that you can’t accommodate!
We have dined at Avanti many times for special occasions or date night. It never disappoints. The food is always on point and the service is always high class. Can't wait to go again!
Excellent, best Martinis. Michael our server was superb, the food was great and the willingness to accommodate our request was above our expectations. Highly recommend.
Food and atmosphere was great, but the head chef I think his name was Angelo was a little too touchy feely with me and my friend and talking inappropriately. Besides that everything was great. He was just weird and kept randomly coming over to us. He wasn’t our waiter. Our waiter was great!
The food was good but I really loved the service and how the owner talked to everyone. He was very funny and at 82 years old still working hard and making customers smile. That's what it is all about.
This place has an old-timey charm, with an excellent staff, and incredible food.
Restaurant week great time
Fantastic food and service! I’m talking old school. The was I was raised in hospitality. Some may think it’s dated, yes it is . Back when things were done correctly. If you want to scream at your dinner companion over loud music , this place is not for you. Probably the best lasagna I’ve ever had. I will be back often
Avanti had amazing service along with spectacular food! The owner of 47 years wasn’t just walking around checking on every guest, he was also serving, answering the phone and attending to a large party. He made the experience phenomenal! The food was filling but I wasn’t stuffed. I went there with a friend for restaurant week. For all of my 38 years living in Phoenix I have never been to Avanti and I kicking myself for not going sooner. I only remembered to take photos of the desserts but they were amazing. You could taste that everything they made was from scratch! Honestly amazing authentic Italian food (the owner is from Florence, Italy).
Old school Italian cuisine elevated above spaghetti and pizza. Interior is nice but dated. We will be back.
My family and I have been going to Avanti for many years. The food is always wonderful and if you don't see what you want on the menu which is hard to do because there is a lot of great items on the menu, The chef can usually make something special. If you are looking for authentic Italian cuisine, Avanti would be a great choice.
Excellent food! We love their meat lasagna, and osso bucco, and Charles is a fabulous piano player!
Avanti’s is always a great experience. We love everything about it!
Osso Bucco was out of this world, Filet of Sole was just as good.
We always feel like we are very important when we dine at Avanti. Everyone from Angelo down greets us and checks on us to make sure everything is great, and it always is. We love it there!
We hadn't been here in a while as we weren't impressed with our last experience a couple of years ago. I'm so glad we gave them another shot. The food was so good, the service (yes, you, Sergio!) was amazing. We loved it so much, we reserved our next visit while we were still seated at our table (thank you. OpenTable)!
Dont often get Gnocchi as I find it a bit heavy for a meal. However, Avantis is excellent, very light in texture and actually could have eaten more. Oso Bucco is always great and love the bar atmosphere. Only drawback was I went on a Sunday evening and missed the piano player in the lounge.
Always a good experience but sadly like everywhere else it seemed under staffed. Our server tried really hard to make it special and he did although he was very busy. We will definitely be back as this is a family favorite and always such a great time. I hope that people go back to work!
Real Authentic food and top notch service!!
With superb food, service, and ambience (lighting and music), Avanti is a great place to relax and visit with friends and family.
The Chef who was also hosting that night never asked if we had a reservation. May or may not have even greater us just asked how many. Pointed out to the dining room and said take the booth over there.
Prices for wine were way outside the normal for a restaurant and only one brand for glass pours.
When he dropped of bread he prefaced it by saying “extra crispy” and “if we don’t like it that’s our fault”. It was black on one side.
Our server was not terrible but wine service wasn’t the best. Touching bottles to the glass and just kind of hovering over us.
The food was veal was mediocre at best. Bland and unappealing.
The kicker is the next day we get food poising.
Atmosphere is strait out of the 1980s right down to the zebra print booths and giant rose pairings? I don’t know what else to call them and of coarse mirrors everywhere.
I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.
Nathanael was an amazing server
I am surprised by all of the positive reviews on this place. The food just wasn’t very good.
We had such an amazing time! We booked this last minute and weren’t sure what to expect! Food was absolutely amazing service was great we had a great time!
Restaurant was closing early but honored our late reservation. Did and service were great. We'll be back
Amazing place for a date night I highly recommend it!!! Michael was an outstanding server which made the experience all the better!
We had a fantastic time! It is definitely an old style restaurant with autographs all over the place! Our waiter was kind, the drinks strong and the food was great!!
We were really looking forward to a nice traditional Italian dinner but we were disappointed. The service was confusing. There were three servers came to our table but that did not help the efficiency nor the speed of services.
If fact, things got worse when more dinner guests came in filled up the other tables, we were neglected. All servers moved over to take care of the late comers.
We had told all our servers that we want my soup and my husband’s mussels served at the same time. They brought my soup but the mussels was not severed until after my soup was getting cold and I had to finish it. My husband’s mussels were served after all other bigger tables got their foods.
By the time our entrees’ were served, other tables were all had their dinners and ready for after dinner cigarettes and dessert. My Eggplant Parmesan and my husband’s veal specify were average at best.
It took a while to get our bill after we already finished our dinner. We noticed that they charged two (2) dirty martinis but I only had one. It, again, took a while for them to correct the bill.
We really started with high expectations for this dinner but we got out with great disappointment.
We do not plan to go back to Avanti for our dinners. There are plenty of good Italian restaurants around Phoenix and Scottsdale areas. We enjoy dining out but Avanti will not be on our list.
My dad always talked about enjoying Avanti’s in the 80’s. Lots of wonderful moments. I thought let’s take dad for fathers dad!! Super fun to see all the movie star photos on the walls, and our waiter remembered all 5 of our orders without writing down a sing note. Food was full of flavor, I would recommend coming here for any special occasion you want to celebrate!
Amazing food! Loved the eggplant parm
We always have a great meal when we come to Avanti. Great service we even enjoyed the gentleman playing the piano in the bar. We always look forward to our next visit.
Great evening with excellent service and good food.
Avanti is a first class restaurant. The staff is always very professional . Geraldo is very attentive. We have been dining here since the late '70's . On this visit we had the fresh Grouper which was perfectly cooked.
It was decent
Best Italian food I ever had, love the food and service. And the owner is a sweetheart ! Until next trip Scottsdale, your Philly crew will be back soon !!
