Absolutely one of best restaurants in Dallas
Only issue, hard to get to on a weekend from north Dallas
The acoustical guitarist was excellent
Will be back!
Wonderful experience at Avanti. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was great for a peaceful Sunday night dinner.
Friendly and inviting! Great Italian dining.
Love this place! Everything on the menu is wonderful!
Food was delicious. Avanti's Restaurant still does a great job after all these years!
All around, pretty much perfect food and service.
Fantastic restaurant. Cuisine was great and the ambiance was incredible. The live musician was very pleasant. I highly recommend it.
Avanti is one of our favorite spots in Uptown. The food is always great, as is the service and atmosphere! The stuffed mushrooms are the best I've had and the arugula salad with pears is wonderful! There plenty of entrees to choose from and we've liked everything we have ordered.
Avanti was the best meal we had during our stay in Dallas. Authentic italian food, great ambiance, excellent service. We felt very confortable there. Loved it!
Love this restaurant and always dine there when in Dallas. The food is amazing and the staff A +
Food tasted fresh and so delicious!!! We will definitely be back!
Blown away. Can’t wait to come back
One of the best!
Excellent food, superb service. We started with ceviche, which was fresh and flavorful. Buratta salad was also good but would have been better with more tomatoes. We ended with two pasta dishes, both superb, and a very nice Barolo recommended by the waiter. Service was attentive without making us feel rushed. A very nice evening. We will go back.
Great food great service great location
I love the ambiance and service I get with every visit to Avanti. I love the late hours of the weekends as well. Avanti is one of y favorite restaurants.
Excellent food and service. Live music was good as well.
They really need some better crusty, chewy bread then what is served at the table. The only thing disappointing!
Awesome food for a fair price. Went on Sunday and it was half off all wine bottles too which was awesome!
Looks like we have found a new favorite restaurant to add to the list. Food was real good. Service was great and the music made it a great evening. We will go back.
Beautiful atmosphere, phenomenal service, and great food! My significant other really enjoyed his birthday here :) Thanks Avanti staff!
Yet another fantastic dining experience at Avanti. Everything was top notch.
Food was reasonably priced. The wine list price and variety did not match those of the food.
Food was great. We go there all the time
Mazen and Naeem were our servers and they provided great customer service
Awesome time. Great atmosphere. Good food. Only downside was that I couldn't figure how to pay through the open table app to get my rewards points.
Best food best romantic restaurant.
Very nice ... my first visit ... will surely return.
We enjoyed everything about our first dinner at Avanti this last Valentine's Day. The host was very welcoming; Candy, our server, took good care of us and tipped us to some excellent menu choices; and the food was perfectly prepared and seasoned.
The service and food is always great, love the ambience.
Very comfortable environment, welcoming staff, good service. Food is outstanding and very fair pricing across the board. We thoroughly enjoy our evenings here.
We looooooove this place. I WILL be returning.
Incredible food, atmosphere and service! Love Avanti!!!
Avanti never disappoints! The food is reasonably priced and is always tasty.
Great little Italian place. Outstanding service. Noise level is pretty high but we weren’t bothered by it.
Our first time at Avanti was a great experience. Good food, service, and ambience. The menu was diverse enough to satisfy all in our party of 3 with ease.
It would of been quieter but there was an Happy baby not enjoying himself!
This is one of my favorite gems in Dallas. The food is consistently good and the staff is always friendly and professional.
I have eaten here for over 3 years now and I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. Management and staff are super friendly. Love the flamenco music, and the food is just amazing! Really really great cocktails too! Just had my 1 year anniversary there and it was absolutely perfect!
