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 !

I didn't notice. My best bet would be to just call the restaurant and ask before you go. I hope you make it out there!
