Avoli Osteria, Dario Schicke's second restaurant in Dundee, is open.
The Italian restaurant took over the space at 5013 Underwood Ave. Agave restaurant was its most recent tenant, and the space also was home to the 1020 and, before that, Trovato's.
The first part of the name combines the names of Schicke's two daughters, Ava and Olivia. “Osteria” translates from Italian as a place serving wine and simple food.
Schicke did extensive work on the restaurant's interior. He turned one of the back dining rooms into a private party area, remodeled restrooms and reconfigured the bar in the front of the restaurant to be an open kitchen area where diners can watch chefs make fresh pasta.
The restaurant's hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, call 402-933-7400.
