A diner from Gallatin, TN gave an overall rating of 5  out of 5 stars on May 9, 2014 @ 2:01 PM

 Hendersonville is overrun with run-of-the-mill spots, so Avanti Gourmet is a diamond. A varied, but not overwhelming, dine-in menu, with fine mixture of Greek & Italian selections, complements a great selection of cold take-home deli-style meals. I have never had a bad experience here. The service alone is enough to make one feel at home. When an unfortunately rude customer sat near me one time, making snide remarks to his waitress, the owner was expert in defusing the situation without causing further ruckus. Ingredients are on display for any one to see, and the staff are glad to answer any questions about the food and preparation. Do not miss out on this spot, and make sure to try Breakfast if it's early.
A diner from Mt. Juliet, TN gave an overall rating of 5  out of 5 stars on December 20, 2013 @ 10:25 AM

 I have used Avanti for catering events & try to eat there on my own as much as I can. The atmosphere is cozy, the service is great, and the food is absolutely delicious! The proprietor, Charlie, knows his stuff. He's a dream to work with--give him a budget and ideas, and he'll work very hard to make it happen. I'm very picky about my food--and the quality of food for my catered events. I never have to worry about anything with Charlie in charge. Presentation and set-up always runs great, and he even took the time to "train" my team of student helpers on how to properly serve the food, about portion control, etc. It just doesn't get better than Charlie! And by the way, he makes some damn good sweet tea, to be from New York!
