    All around great experience. This is a small family owned restaurant. Three generations. The food was perfect. I had the spaghetti with meat sauce . Everything is fresh and delicious. Some of the best I have had and I am very picky. The service was great and super friendly. I will definitely be back.

    The food , service and presentation were good. The value for money is excellent . The salad is especially tasty and very fresh . It us included with the dinner which is a plus . The focaccia bread with mozzarella and tomatoes is excellent as well as the carpaccio.. The ambiance is casual , relaxing and quiet enough to have a conversation with the people at your table. The waitstaff is excellent - friendly and attentive .

    We arrived at 6:20 for 6:30 reservations. Took about 10 minutes. Service was slow. Food was outstanding but because of the slow service we almost missed our 8PM show at Stage West as by the time we finally got our check it was after 7:45.

    The best Italian food I've found here in Ft. Worth. Awesome menu choices and a good wine list. Value for money pricing. Service was outstanding. We actually were served by the owner Erica. A family owned and operated small business with the husband in the kitchen with wife and son out front. Sam the other server is equally friendly and achieves high marks from long term customers for her "super" service as well. Small and cozy, great location, great food served with sincere hospitality. Highly recommended. I can't wait to return. I'm a fan!

    A wonderfully place for a peaceful, quiet dinner. Not crickets quiet but just enough background music. Our dinners were served in a timely manner, hot and delicious. They have an ample bar and a great Pinot Grigio as their house wine. Not cheap but a value for the quality. We did not have dessert but their coffee and the Expresso Martini are excellent! Highly recommend Aventino's.

    Service was outstanding. Food was average. Lots of olive garden type choices. Too much white cream sauce on food items.
    Aventino'sResponded on 22 September 2023
    Thank you for your review. Our menu is comprised of over 53% marinara supported menu items. This will include Fettuccini Fungi, Spaghetti Marinara, Spaghetti Meat Sauce, Tortellini Rosa, plus 10 others. All of our sautéed dishes are accompanied by a side of spaghetti marinara. 35% of our menu is neither cream nor marinara based and unlike the "boil-in-a-bag" restaurants like you mentioned, everything is made fresh. Hopefully this will help. Our staff is also available to assist as well.
