Terra Vino Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar is now open in the space formerly known as "Avanti Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar" on Research Forest. Don’t fret; it’s still family owned and operated by the hospitality professionals at the Orioli Restaurant Group, creators of the renowned Via Emilia Italian Restaurant.

"We’ve conducted a deep evaluation of what our customers want and believe the new menu options will excite our new and returning guests.  This rebranding allows us to align our menu and wine list with our guests’ desires, further elevating the dining experience. Diners can expect the same level of high-quality ingredients and courteous service as with any of our restaurants,” said Co-Owner Enrique Orioli.

 "Terra Vino Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar is a contemporary scratch Italian kitchen featuring a creative line-up of delectable antipasti dishes, hand-made pasta, and traditional artisanal pizzas, alongside handcrafted cocktails, wine flights, and an impressive wine list. Most of the dishes found on the menu have been passed down over generations, along with a deep love and appreciation for food and family. We kept many of our guest favorites but have some exciting new additions like our Pappardelle & Short Rib Ragu, with house-made pappardelle pasta tossed in a slow-braised beef short rib ragu, topped with fresh parmesan and basil. This dish is a showstopper," Orioli said.
