The restaurant is screened by modern urban walls, but once you enter you are welcomed with open arms. The waiters are friendly and well informed. Menu has a good authentic Italian flair to it with reasonable portions. Food was well prepared, service was attentive. Good...More

Was looking for a quick authentic Italian pasta while visiting Bloem, popped in here. On plus side, service was super fast. Unfortunately the penne over cooked and sauce watery.

Avanti has good food but is pricey. But sadly the restaurant is very crowded and waiters and guests repeatedly bumped into me. It lacks ambience as the overhead lights are glaring whilst a tea candle struggles to create atmosphere....

The wine menu is excellent, the restaurant ambiance is excellent and the food was delicious but the service was not great and the wait was terrible. We don't mind waiting but it would be great if the waitron would communicate that with us.

We had a great night out at Avanti. We experienced friendly helpful service. I will recommend their seafood pasta - it was really good.

Had the loveliest rump steak with herb butter - plain and scrumptious! Excellent service and great ambience. Will definitely return.
