Avanti Ristorante offers an intimate dining room with a sleek, Uptown bistro atmosphere, where you can hear live music nightly. For the urban connoisseur dine al fresco, sip, mingle and eat outdoors amongst your friends on the trendy McKinney Avenue strip. Our menu features northern and southern Italian dishes made with seafood, steaks, veal and homemade pasta.  Avanti has become a Dallas mainstay, a chic neighborhood restaurant for over the past twenty-six years.


  • “Avanti is one of the most relaxing restaurant experiences one can have in up-town. It's classy without being pretentious, romantic but not over the top, and cozy but no so casual as to lose the formality of good service.”
