Avanti Restaurant Review: Angelo Livi and Benito Mellino's Italian restaurant epitomizes the word "classic." This Phoenix stalwart, with its black-and-white décor, looks as endearingly traditional as its cuisine tastes. To wit: escargots de Bourgogne; the authentic Caesar salad; fresh-made pasta like fettuccine in a wild mushroom sauce topped with fresh arugula; osso buco Milanese; and crème caramel flan. Wine dinners are particularly popular, drawing from purveyors across America and Europe.
