Success! Thanks for posting your review of Ristorante Avanti. You’ve done the world some good today.


Its good to call ahead during prime time dinner hour. Or you may have to wait 20-30 mins. I have eaten here 3 times and every time has been scrumptious ! Love love loved the Brussel sprout salad and the spicy lamb dishes! Amazing you want to linger on every bite.

So-so experience

My group spent a recent weekend in Santa Cruz and stopped in to Avanti per a recommendation. In general, we had on ok experience. Portions are small (no leftovers for sure) and, because we knew that in advance, ordered 1 appetizer and 1 Caesar salad to share. The bruschetta was ok. The pappadelle and meatballs was good as was my own pork chop special. Another friend ordered the special braised lamb shoulder over... view more

Best restaurant in Santa Cruz

Could be one of the best restaurants in all of Santa Cruz. Most (if not all) of it ingredients are local. Wine selection is fantastic. And the menu, holy wow. I guess there is a reason why they have been around so long. ristoranteavanti com

Fresh, local and delicious!

I've had many great meals at Avanti and consider it my favorite restaurant in Santa Cruz. The menu is small, but seasonal and always spectacular. In fact, I always end up ordering too many different dishes and then have no room for dessert! I HIGHLY recommend the striped bass; it is outstanding! The wine list is very well put together, and they have an interesting selection by the glass (which changes regularly).... view more

Be Prepared to Wait

Avanti is a small restaurant that offers a great wine selection. Even though the restaurant is small, service was very slow. Menu selection is very small, as are the portions. High quality Italian cuisine at reasonable prices should not be difficult to offer in this area since fresh ingredients are ubiquitous in this region. However, prices at Avanti are too high for the quantities they offer.
