With the checkered floors, mirrored ceilings and shameless animal print upholstery, Avanti might seem at first glance to be a '70's movie set of the disco or mobster kind. But the experience at this neighborhood favorite is so rewarding that it has kept customers returning for 35 years. Avanti serves authentic Italian cuisine, with a focus on handmade pastas – such as the Portofino Ravioli – made with the freshest ingredients possible. Hosts Angelo and Benito will make sure you feel at home from the minute you walk in the door and you’re sure to be full and satisfied when you walk back out.
Ask for spaghetti & sea food. Also oysters in the shell are nice experience.
What a lovely surprise to find such an adorable, romantic restaurant in an older multi ethnic neighborhood. Amazing food and service. Have sent friends to Avanti since my visit.
Avanti has an extremely friendly staff, divine, flavorful food and provides the optimal dining experience. Thumbs up!
I found Avanti by googling best restaurants in Phoenix and I went there for a business dinner. What a pleasant surprise, a bit of a throwback to the 80s. The wait staff was so accomading and knew the menu like the back of the hand. They treated us like family. The Canneloni was awseome and my dining partner had the pasta triple... We were defintely stuffed as we had the home made cannoli. Bueno Sera
the excellent service does not make up for the noisy diner atmosphere and almost criminal prices ! entrees,,salads,,,1 appetizer,,,,no dessert and 2 glasses of wine,,,,,,,$200 for 2 Really ?
