  • "This was our first time at the restaurant and we had a very enjoyable time. The food is shareable and enjoyable. The salty caramel gelato for dessert was a fantastic way to finish the meal. The only problem was that we were in the back room with a few large tables of diners and the acoustics are not the greatest so there were times when it was hard to hear my husband sitting right next to me. It might be better out in the main room but the service, wine and food were great."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "One of the best dining experiences that I've had in a long time. The food was superb, the staff extremely attentive but in no way intrusive."

  • "Beware OpenTable Diners -- we did dine here, we did check-in and we were entered into OpenTable System as no-shows. Called Davanti that same evening, we were assured it would be corrected. No go, the reservation went into the system as No-Shows and were marked as skiiping out on the OpenTable reservation."

  • "Menu is getting a little stale--need some more variety."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We took out of town guests to Davanti Enoteca. We all had a tough time selecting what to eat, as so many of the menu items were appealing. We thoroughly enjoyed the sweet roasted butternut squash and farro salad and the meatballs. The truffle egg toast with fontina on asparagus was tasty but a bit not what I expected. Rather than the crispy toast with egg and veggies that I had envisioned, the egg and fontina were baked into a popover. Entree favorites included creative and delightful scallops on blood orange and citrus and the incredibly tender polle "sole mio," a half chicken grilled with chili paste. The wine list was less varied than I would have expected. The all-brick back room, though a bit warm, had an intimate, inviting atmosphere."

  • "I booked a later reservation on Sunday evening which was great since there wasn't much of a crowd. Our server Daniel was very helpful in explaining the menu from wines, specials, and his personal recommendations for our meal. The aesthetics of the restaurant were excellent down to the fire brick oven. The service we received was fantastic and food timing impeccable. Since this was our first time we also received a complimentary dessert, which was the topped of the night in superb fashion. Over all first impressions couldn't have been better."

  • "Our party of 6 thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our evening. From the welcome staff to the food & drinks. And it was reasonably priced. Would certainly recommend & go again."

  • "My nephew picked the restaurant for his special dinner after his Confirmation . We had a wonderful time thanks to our excellent server who treated the children so special. Thank you all so much for making his night."

  • "We came to Davanti for my daughter's birthday and did not know what to expect! Well, we were all pleasantly surprised! The "shared" plate concept was right up our alley. We always taste each other's dishes anyway so being prompted by our excellent waitress helped us really get a variety of dishes and we all tried them. We want to go back because we all got full and didn't even try the pasta, or flatbreads or some of the piattis and burgers....oh so many choices! Loved the casual atmosphere and the relaxed but attentive service. A great value for the amount of food and the quality of each dish! They even treated my daughter (all of us) with a scoop of gelato and torta bacio which was delish!! Thank you for a great surprise for all of us!"
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "Davanti in Western Springs is my absolutely favorite place. It is so nice to have yet another wonderful dining option close to home. First of all, absolutely everything on their menu is incredible. I have brought every guest who has visited me to Davanti and they agree. By far the flatbread with ricotta and honeycomb is my favorite, though... I swear I dream about it! The staff is always friendly, accommodating, and fun! They sure do know their stuff at Davanti! Always look forward to being there!"
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "We dine at Davanti fairly frequently because we live within walking distance, and we make it a point to take visitors and friends there whenever we can. We enjoy the share-the-dish aspect of the place, and we have never had a bad dish, let alone a bad meal."

  • "The apps were to die for, bruschetta, chicken liver pâté, and delicious salad for two. I had the scallops, cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. My wife had salmon, totally delicious. Our friends had pizza and that was surprisingly fantastic too. The wine too was just right. Have to say one of the best dinners we have had in some time.. Also we requested a nice table in the back and to our surprise that's exactly what was waiting for us! Five Stars.."

  • "We made reservations with friends on a whim and had a fantastic time. So easy to get to and park. The atmosphere has a cozy downtown vibe, the food was fantastic and so was the wine. Service was a little slow out of the gate but in her defense, it was a busy night."

  • "We had a great time there! Ordered lots of items to share and one was even better than the next! Going back for sure!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Don't expect actual Italian food here! The liver pate tasted more like mustard than anything liver. The bruschetta did not have any tomato or basil, but did have chickpea paste (aka hummus) and burnt pancetta. The DOC pizza lacked ingredients and flavor, but they served the salt and oregano on the side! The meats and cheeses were a nightmare to order! None of the cheeses have an actual cheese type, just a brand and what source of milk. So, asking for a Taleggio, I got something more creamy than a Brie and another which was a Parmesan ... and no bread - that was extra $! My prosciutto came served with pomegranate juice and seeds on top. And the dessert said that it had a biscotti base, but it was more like a rice krispie! :-("

  • "I went with my wife and another couple and we were informed that they were running about 10 to 15 min behind to seat us. After 5 minutes of waiting the manager came over to us and bought us a round of drinks. It's that kind of attention to detail that makes a quality restaurant. The waitress was great, and the food was even better. I highly recommend the ribeye dish and the nudi in the san marzano tomato sauce. I watched the two girls at the table next to use keep telling each other how amazing the food was. At the end of the night the manager came back and checked on us to make sure everything was good. This was my third time here and will definitely be going back. This is my new favorite restaurant!"
