Awards & Recognition

Our Wine Collection has been recognized by a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence since 2018.

Earning a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence is a recognition of our passion for curating a compelling wine collection for our guests to enjoy. We are thrilled to be part of the prestigious Wine Spectator family. We work with gusto for proposing excellent wines coming from Italy and the Mediterranean basin and feature a diverse range of regions, varietals and price options. As we are proudly rooted in Texas, the list also includes a selection of domestic and local wines.

This wine program is a tribute to the winemakers all over the world and to the sense of friendship beyond frontiers that wine brings to our lives. It is always with emotion, pride, and joy that the team presents a bottle to our tables. This list comes as an invitation to try new wines from Greece, Sardinia, new cabs from uncharted territories or appreciate the purity of a single varietal such as a Corvina that we rarely drink by itself.

The pleasure of wine lies in the moment and in the company, creating lasting memories. We named our collection “Vini d’Amicizia” (Wines of Friendship in Italian), because our passion is to bring people together around friendly wine and food shared with joy and simplicity.

We hope you’ll enjoy your wine service and discover many new friends at Avanti. Cheers to that!

Open Table Diners’ Choice Award

Diners’ Choice lists recognize outstanding restaurants based on feedback from thousands of local diners in 32,000+ restaurants. The feedback of customers is used to create OpenTable’s Diners’ Choice lists that celebrate the best local restaurants. The lists are refreshed once a month. Avanti has been a proud winner of the Diners’ Choice for three years in a row. This Award has the greatest value to us because it is directly powered by our guests’ reviews.

Bon appétit!
