If my Italian is correct, this restaurant's name is an invitation. Our experience suggests that it is an invitation worth accepting. The service was excellent, the welcome warm and the food delightful. We left feeling that we had made a good choice; and there are lots of choices to be made in this neighborhood.

The two of us arrived early for our reservation on a Friday evening with few diners already there. We decided to sit at the bar first, which turned out to be an excellent decision. Our barkeep took care of us, made a great drink and reserved a perfect table on the patio for us. Our meals were perfect. I highly... More

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!!

We really enjoyed our meals.I had the seafood pasta, prepared spicy to my liking,others ordered the sea bass and beef tournedos which they thoroughly enjoyed. Our server was very attentive.The entire staff was very welcoming. My only complaint is that it was so noisy it made conversation difficult.

While visiting Dallas, the concierge recommended this restaurant. The restaurant has candle lights at the each table and has inside and outside sitting areas. Ordered braised short ribs which was good. Spouse had chicken Parmesan which was plentiful and ok to taste. The waiter was either new or not very good. We ask questions about the menu and he asked...

We had great wine, food, and service was impeccable. We were travelling back to London and needed to put our suitcases somewhere and they accommodated. We had an outside covered area to sit in. Great waiter, Mazen. Ceviche was amazing, my Cobb Salad was also great although not used to the way that they served the ham in the salad... More

Excellent food preparation in an intimate space with a most attentive staff are the elements that made this birthday celebration most memorable. Of special note was our server, Christine. She was able to anticipate our every need in a most unobtrusive manner. The sea bass and pasta were impeccably prepared and the desserts (Rum Custard Pie and Tiramisu) were to... More
