Great food and great service! We had a great table in the patio on the back side of of the building. It is well appointed and very comfortable. Would defiantly go again!
Very nice dinner. Attentive service. Pleasant evening.
Portions are a bit small for the price tag. Delicious though and great service!
Food and service was amazing! All around great place!
Amazing food as always
I was excited to go to davanti for Valentine’s Day but was extremely disappointed. When we arrived we sat down and asked for a heater to be turned on and they said they were out of propane and it was freezing. They were out of their signature appetizer that we came for and many different items on the menu which they did not let us know upon arrival. Was extremely disappointed that they would run out of almost everything on the menu on one of their busiest nights of the year.
always happy to be dining at Davanti Enoteca. i look fwd to the cacio e pepe and the focaccia with the honeycomb dripped on it. the bloody marys were good but miss the bloody mary bar even though we had the tower. felt good to dining out on their back patio!
We had the perfect table in the inner patio area! Ambiance was perfect and food was great! We were celebrating Valentine’s Day with a brunch... eggs Benedict, brussel sprouts, octopus and pizza di carne! And don’t forget to order their specialty bread appetizer, amazing!
This was a last minute outing to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my husband and daughter. There was still availability when I checked the day before. Outdoor dining was on the cool side and they weren’t allowed to turn on the heat lamps. Other than that, the food and service was great.
The overall experience was great! I brought my wife here for her birthday and our server Allan took good care of us. The food was also on point. I’ll be coming back soon!
One of the best Italian places in Little Italy. I visit it every time I am in San Diego. Love it.
Enjoyed. The service and food was awesome!
It was nice of upside with the heater and the food and service we’re good
Great place and vibe.
This is our all time favorite place to dine when in San Diego!
Meal was great, server was nice, ambiance not so great but that is mostly due to covid. We were seated outside directly next the road and the passing cars and pedi cans with loud music weren’t the best ambiance, but that’s hardly the restaurants fault. I would def try this place again! Oh and you must get the focaccia!!!
Amazing as always! Focaccia bread as a app is a MUST!
Their food always hits the spot! We can always count on Davanti to deliver exceptional food and service! Had leftovers for breakfast the next day and tasted just as good too
Love this restaurant!! Everything is always so good, and they always have great specials! Brad is the best server!!!
The Fettini di Manzo and the gnocchi were exceptional. Excellent cocktails. Best Tiramisu outside of Italy!
Was a great place to eat. Very clean and nice restaurant. Wait staff was friendly
We had thanksgiving dinner here and it was delicious.
We loved our server Dustin! He was attentive and great overall. The food was delicious as well.
Poor food quality.
Wonderful appetizers and great service. Thank you.
Food looked better than it tasted. Was disappointed as it had gotten better reviews. Would not go back nor recommend.
Great service and friendly staff
So yummy ! So cute! Get the ricotta flatbread!!!
My table was for 2 outside, which was fine. The table itself was terrible. I didn't see any other tables we could move to but the table was almost broken. My daughter and I couldn't rest anything on it and we were scared to even have drinks on it. It wobbled and leaned and was just not what I was expecting from a place like that. Otherwise, food was great and service was great. Beautiful at night in little Italy.
It was not as good as we recalled in the past although the service was good.
Beautiful atmosphere, food was good, but our server was a little lacking. Had to ask for water refill twice, and she forgot our desert. But we still enjoyed our dinner and will be going back.
Celebrated a delicious 65th birthday brunch there.
Awesome..... good energy
Ana was amazing as well the other servers
Love love love. Well time spend very happy
Loved the ambiance! The portion sizes were a bit odd, very little pasta but too much chicken. Great tastes though and excellent service.
We always enjoy eating here and appreciate the fast and friendly service offered.
Love this place! Been a couple times and it’s awesome every time. Food was fantastic, service was polite and fast. Will definitely be back.
This is my absolute favorite Italian restaurant in San Diego. However, the last 3 times I’ve been here with a reservation I’m still waiting at least 20 minutes for my table. I feel like reservations aren’t monitored well. Hostess is never super friendly or accommodating for it, kinda like oh well you can just hangout and look at me.
Not exactly the experience we were looking for, but not bad either. Friendly hostess and adequate service. The food was fantastic and served promptly.
Don't bother with the pork belly hash, underwhelming.
We had a delicious wonderful this weekend. Enjoyed their Foccacia de Recco, which was so delicious with the Honeycomb and also loved, loved the Polenta & Ragu, which was served table side. We will be back for more!!
