A longtime Valley institution, Avanti will celebrate its 40th anniversary next year. Chef Angelo Livi, one of the restaurant's original partners, still manages the day-to-day and greets guests nightly. A native of Florence, Italy, he draws on family recipes for his dishes. Avanti's dining room features decidedly "throwback decor" (Arizona Republic) with a black-and-white motif and zebra-print banquettes.

The service was excellent. Very knowledgeable server. He was polite and courteous.

The food was not good. Cold bread. The spaghetti with meatballs and sausage had an "off" taste to it. Like raw meat. Salad was warm, not cold. The restaurant had an old "musty" smell to it. Looked dirty.

We stopped in the bar first for a drink and the bartender gave us such good service we decided to just stay in the bar for our dinner also.
