Ossobuco Milanese at Avanti Restaurant

It's the meal that keeps on feeding.

No matter how many bites I took, it seemed I could hardly put a dent in this enormous plate of ossobuco Milanese at Avanti Restaurant, the swanky, old-school Italian spot on Thomas. Can you have too much of a good thing? Not as long as there's a to-go box at the ready.

This was beyond tender -- I barely touched my knife -- and smothered in carrots and onions and nestled in a creamy cushion of risotto.

The crabcake appetizer was just as sinful -- a melt-in-your-mouth crabmeat patty and some big, plump shrimp blanketed in spicy cream sauce.

My dining companion had a gut-busting plate of spaghetti with both meatballs and chunks of sausage. The marinara sauce had a bold, savory flavor that stood up to the richness of all that meat.

Have you ever seen the dining room here? It's like a perfectly preserved time capsule, and it just gleams. A Phoenix gem for sure.
