All so great! Sitting outside is dreamy, except for the road noise. What about putting the tables back behind the kitchen? Thank you!

This is dining during Covid at its finest. The food, wine, and service were all outstanding! The outdoor setup creating a pleasant and safe dining experience. The chef and staff need to be congratulated—we cannot wait to return!

I regret to say we needed to postpone. Im very sorry I didnt notify the resturant and promise not to do that again. Hopefully some happy customers got to fill that space. I love Avanti. Would return more frequently if it wasnt quite so expensive. And ... I realize fresh farm to table is not something to compromise on. Grazi.

First time out for a proper dinner since the quarantine began in March. So happy to have picked Avanti where the food is always delicious and the staff friendly and efficient. I though the outside seating was well arranged and the tables set a good distance apart. Thank you, Avanti.

Having the tables so near the street was uncomfortable and noisy. Could have used the back parking lot instead. Also resent having to pay for bread. Food was good and good portions.
