About Us

On August 21, 2018, a lifelong dream of chef/owner Mark Carruth and his soulmate Jeanne Schneider became a reality at the corner of Nyberg and Martinazzi in Tualatin, Oregon. After spending most of their lives working in corporate restaurants, this talented and personable couple launched a small, unique, upscale, family restaurant and bar that provides all of the following and more:

  • Excellent appetizers, soups, salads, and entrees created, prepared, and plated by Chef Mark and delivered by Jeanne

  • A relaxing atmosphere for lunch, happy hour, and dinner, where Mark and Jeanne take pride in visiting with and getting to know their customers

  • A new go-to "date night" destination, yet one that is also enjoyed by families with children

Avanti now offers an exceptional culinary experience not previously available in this section of the Portland metropolitan area.
