Diner Reviews
  • "Just a hair shy of the Taylor Street location when it comes to ambiance and food."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The food was awesome from the start. We thoroughly enjoyed everything we tried. The octopus and the focaccia were outstanding. Barbara, our server, was a bundle of energy and made some great recommendations for our large group. We will definitely be heading back soon!"

  • "Food was usual - good. Service not up to standard in past. Maybe she was too busy tonight"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Our Anniversary Date night was exceptional thanks to Davanti!! While as casual as a neighborhood spot, the food is Amazingly downtown!! The service is exceptional, but the food = Extraordinary!! Will see you again soon!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "had friends come out from the city to enjoy dinner at davanti, our local gem. well, right from the start our server was very quiet and lackluster (could barely hear her-and only 3 other tables were occupied). her wine recommendation based on notes that were obviously wrong, was the opposite of what we wanted. we ordered another bottle and were told "this is our last one, by the way". finally, mid-meal, a more seasoned hostess stopped by to ask if we wanted more wine(because our bottle was obviously empty). The 2 she recommended were both out of stock.took over 25 minutes to get our "vasi", which were ordered first and one of their specialties.dessert menus brought before our entree arrived.food was great but service spotty at best.a shame."

  • "Davanti is an energetic night spot, but don't overlook it for lunch. The variety and creativity of offerings were fabulous. We felt like we were dining at a lovely French cafe."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Davanti breaks out of the mediocrity of the suburban restaurant scene. It's the same excellent quality you'd get downtown, but in a location that's remarkably convenient for those in the area. Unless you're celiac or lactose intolerant, you have no excuse for not getting the focaccia. It's incredible, especially with the honey, which balances the tang of the cheese. Our asparagus salad was bright and satisfying. The zucchini flower and crab pizza was good, but the crab was overshadowed. I had the mushroom pizza on a previous visit, and it was better. The drinks aren't cheap, but they're made well. Our server was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was perfectly lively without being overly loud. I could go to Davanti every week."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Every dish was wonderful - especially the kale salad and the beet salad. Now that I'm becoming a regular, I'm hoping that they'll add some specials, as I'm working my way through the whole menu. Just a bit noisy - you might call that hopping and lively, or just a bit overpowering. So happy to have a dependable place in Western Springs."

  • "Davanti has the BEST food. We love going there for dinner. Their burger is out of this world great! Also, we had the arabiata app that I now must have again. Just a terrific place. Whatever they are doing, don't stop."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Love the outdoor area, comfortable and pretty. Staff is friendly and service is good. The bus boys are terrific and are very attentive. Needless to say the food is terrific. Love, love the polenta and mushroom pizza! It's great to have a local place doing so well."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Great food and service. Went for a dinner with 7. All thoroughly enjoyed the appetizers, dinner and deserts. We were seated promptly, and service was excellent. Manager and waitress were attentive and friendly. Could not have been a better night. We definitely will be back and tell friends."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I love the feel of this restaurant. It's very welcoming. The staff is friendly, they explain the menu for first-timers. The menu items are unique and flavorful. My favorite is the hangar steak and the pork shoulder ragu on top of polenta. The desserts were tasty too. I'll definitely be returning!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I always look forward to my meals here. We had terrific service and our food came out promptly."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "This is a wonderful addition to W.S. The more good restaurants in the area the better. The food is great especially the polenta and ragu of the day. Every dish in all of the times I have been there has been very good and enjoyed by the whole party."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We had a nice dinner and would could back again. However, our waitress acted like she really didn't enjoy doing what she was doing and never even tried to converse with us. It was not that busy and she would quickly come and ask what we wanted to drink and then quickly left. The dinner is always more enjoyable when the person waiting on you cares about your table and is pleasant. The food was great. We got the burger and leek and mushroom pizza. The ambience was also very inviting. It had a very rustic feel to it. The outdoor seating looked nice as well."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Second trip, excellent food on both visits. Wait staff is very knowledgeable and not pushy. Recommend the skate - every mouthful was superb! Hanger steak was fine, but not exceptional. So excited to have a great restaurant in Western Springs! Finally."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Great for groups as the dishes are made to share, so everyone can try a little of many things. All our dishes were delicious, the ragu polenta is a must!! The octopus was ok, but I would not order it again...other items were better on the menu."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Everything was great! The polenta was amazing as well as the pasta and salad! The bread pudding dessert was outstanding. Our server was the best! Fun, effecient, and helpful. The bartender was awesome too. A+ for the service!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Quantity of food was lacking! Friend ordered the spinach filled ravioli. Entree came in huge looking bowl with one stuffed ravioli for $14! Only bright spot was half price bottle of wine on Wednesdays."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "As usual, the food was delightful, including the new banana-peanut butter cake. However, our waitress seemed annoyed to have to take care of us. We had one person in our group who keeps kosher, and the waitress acted as if she were bothered by having to help us figure out how we could still order the polenta with pork shoulder. We eventually figured it out among the five of us, without the waitress' help."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Love this place on Wednesdays with the girlfriends. 1/2 price bottle night and great food. Love all the pastas and flat breads--would pass on the hangar steak-tough. Angel is a GREAT server. She used to work at Zach's Place in Hinsdale and was well known and liked there."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Excellent brunch, second time there for Fathers Day. The Foccacia with the goat chees and honeycomb was amazing. So was the French toast, the eggs and of course the bloodymary bar. We had a great table outside and a beautiful day. Very attentive and well informed service. Definitely will be back."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had another amazing dining experience at Davanti Enoteca - Western Springs. We went for brunch on Father's Day, and everything was excellent; Great food, great service, great outdoor seating."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Our group of 6 enjoyed the evening. Our waiter walked us through the menu, making helpful suggestions. A description of Italian tapas would be apt as we ordered sets of three dishes and then shared. Sharing isn't necessary, but added to a fun evening of good food. It allows for discussion and comparison which added to the interest. Have to go back and try what we just couldn't fit! Can't comment on many of the recommendation categories but next time maybe more can be checked."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We had a reservation and were seated quickly on a Friday evening. Our server, Katie, was terrific. Unfortunately, she spilled my entree on me. Being hot, it could have been serious -- but was just messy. The pork shoulder ragu and whitefish specials were both delicious. Katie did everything she could to make up for the accident. A great meal and evening despite the dropped entree."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "What a Terrific night!! thanks to our waiter and Davanti!!! Will Be Back Soon!!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Ricotta and honey, polenta ragu... Can never resist these, but the specials are always great too. How to decide? Come back!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We go out to dinner with this group at least 3 or 4 times a year. This was the first time we tried a "small plate" venue. Although my husband and I have been to Davanti's before, none of the others had, so we were a little leery how it would work out. My concern evaporated quickly. We started with a cheese and meat board and went from there, with each of us choosing something from the menu: liver pate, beets, 2 different pizzas, hamburger, and more. (Not to mention drinks.) The food was outstanding and entertaining as we made our decisions and tasted. Would like to do it again."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Enjoyed the fab focaccia, a great burger and the weather while sitting on the patio. Finished the night with amazing salted Carmel gelato. Great addition to the Western burbs!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Second time to go to Divanti Enoteca and service unacceptable both times and will not return. Made drink orders twice because waitress forgot, tapas restaurant and never got new plates between courses, or water refilled. "

  • "1/2 price bottle night, great food, fun atmosphere. Go and enjoy with your girlfriends."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Davanti is a great place to try foods that you haven't necessarily tried before. Things I didn't think I would like we're very good."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Davanti continues to do everything well. the restaurant was a bit noisy last weekend, but nonetheless the service and food were very good."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Food is always wonderful. The vodka infusion was delightful! Strawberry basil...very refreshing!!! Sadly service the past two visits hasn't been great."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Great food, great wine (most are 1/2 off on Wednesdays) and a gem in the western suburbs. Good to go with a foodie to show you the ropes. But burger is also out of this world. Great place to meet girlfriends. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Had a delicious lunch here with a group of friends. We shared a fantastic escarole salad, ragu board and risotto. Food was very good- service was just alright. "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner which included- focaccia & cheese & honey app, escarole salad, pizza, ribeye, pork ragout & polenta and much more. The only app I would not recommend as the eggplant app. It was kind of tasteless. "

  • "Nice change from the dreary offerings of most Mother's Day Brunches. A lovely Romaine Salad, delicious lox & bagels with all the fixings, roasted beets, grilled asparagus, a chicken dish, a pasta dish. several breakfast dishes and prime rib at the carving station. Pizzas were delivered to the table and dessert was Glazed and Infused Donuts (nice touch!). Service was friendly but a little slow. I thought the $7 price tag on the "make your own Bloody Mary's" was too high. All in all a great Mother's Day experience for $30 pp. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We had our 2nd visit. The first time, the food was good but, being a Saturday night with a large party of noisy women in the bar, it was almost impossible to have a conversation. This time, on a Sunday, it was delightful. The food both times was very good and imaginative, and the service was efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly. Curiously for an enoteca, it had a disappointingly limited selection of white wines. I hope that was just a temporary glitch."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "Delicious! Tried a variety of items from the menu and nothing disappointed. Everything was freshly prepared and absolutely delicious. It can get a bit pricey, but overall this restaurant is a must try!"
