Avanti has been a longtime favorite of my friends and family with a reputation for serving wonderful food and providing top service. Beautiful salads, terrific pizza's, wonderful pasta's, full bar and decent wine list. The atmosphere is lovely and inviting without being too formal. But what makes Avanti one of the top tier in Pasadena (a city chock full of wonderful eateries) are the staff. From the bartenders to the owners, the managers - all the wait staff: professional, friendly, well-versed in their menu items. Always a joy to eat there; we make sure we go there each time we come to Pasadena. You'll love it too!
Great food great service
Fantastic food and service. Excellent selections. Definitely will be back.
Good but didn't have Afogato coffee
Great food and excellent service!
So sad when I moved and I could no longer go here! Every single pizza is a delicious combination and the service is good. I miss that pizza so much!
Exclusive place to indulge delicious Italian cuisine with family and friend's, don't forget to visit the bar... This is a very upscale restaurant. Excellent chef and the staff are very friendly with a smile. I give it a five-star.
Love this place! Food is good. Service is great. Ambiance is nice. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommend it!
Love the atmosphere, service and great and food!
Good quality food reasonably priced.
I eat here pretty regularly. The food is good and consistent. The past few times I've been there, I have had great service. Several months ago I wouldn't have been able to say that. I think they hired some new people. The bar tender was very nice as well. Their pasta and pizzas are the better choice. The lamb is OK but a little pricey. Don't order the fish, it's not that great at all.
Excellent happy hour!
Good food long wait
Excellent service. The lamb shank was fantastic!
Food was great. Lots of options, including vegetarian.
Busy, family-friendly place. Tasty reasonably priced food. Has an outdoor seating deck. Very welcoming proprietors, free parking in their own lot. A sponsor of A Noise Within Theatre, so they off 10% off if you are going to a show. Definitely worth checking out for an Italian meal.
Went for Friday's late happy hour with some girlfriends. The happy hour menu is yummy; the pizza's and ravioli were very good. Drinks for happy hour were also a good price. Service was friendly. I would definitely return again.
