Avanti was one of my favorite experiences at an Italian restaurant. Everything was pretty much perfect. The staff was friendly helpful and very attentive. The food was beautifully presented and as fresh as you can get. The pasta was delicious. The beef was so tender you can cut it with a butter knife. Overall it was a perfect first dining experience in Dallas. 6/5 stars if it was possible.

What a cute place....most wine is by the bottle, I kinda wish there were more wine by the glass options, but they did have a awesome Rosé. Food was great including their soup(eggplant tomatoes?🤔) And they have live music some nights. Great ambience!

Despite having a reservation we had to wait for over 30 minutes. Our server argued with me throughout the meal. When he brought me the incorrect dish at 9 pm (when they close), he argued that because he confirmed the wrong dish with me, it was my fault. When the correct dish was brought out it was clearly thrown together. The sauce was watery, the steak looked microwaved and had literally no seasoning on it, it was bland and didn’t look like it had actually touched a grill. Our waiter again argued that I just didn’t know what salt and pepper tasted like, and it was my fault yet again because he put in the initial dish incorrectly (confusing, right?). This was, according to him, a 14 year employee. At this point the host stepped in to try to figure why our server was still arguing with me. I’m all sorts of patient with mistakes, miscommunications, and just ‘shit happening’ in general. But my 10 year anniversary dinner was really just me arguing with a waiter instead of my children like usual. The reviews are all raving so it was extra disappointing, as I was excited to visit.

Amazing experience at Avantis restaurant. Ambience was beautiful and they have live music as well. I am usually not a big fan of Italian food to be honest, but their food was a true delight to the tastebuds, a 10/10! The waiter I had was an older gentleman with a nice beard who was extremely kind and patient with us as well since me and my wife do not drink alcohol and he went over the non-alcoholic entrees on the menu with us. A very polite man. I will definitely be back!

Best Italian in Uptown. Service was great; shout out Martin for the best service and food recommendations. The chef special with scallops was amazing. The garlic bread goes very well with every dish; we couldn’t get enough of it.
