This was our first visit to Davanti Enoteca, and it DEFINITELY won't be our last. The service and food was exceptional. We all loved the concept of sharing the dishes. That gave us an opportunity to try many of their entrees.

Food was very good, The pasta portions were very small for the price but everything else was wonderful... I the pasta flavor was very good but for $16.00 you really only had a side portion. Our server was nice but half the time we could not find him.....We had to get our own salt and ask for drinks a few times.

Introducing friends to Davanti. They loved it. Had prosciutto meatball, ricotta worth honey comb, chicken liver pate, and truffle fries fir appetizers. For entrees, we again shared the following: polenta with beef raging, Caesar salad, pasta and shrimp. Weak items were the meatball and the polenta. Yellow polenta is much better than the white one they serve, on the other hand, the pasta was the standout of the entrees. Delicious grapefruit and berry sorbet were perfect desserts.

Great gathering place for friends. However, We made a reservation on OpenTable the day before, but when we arrived they didn’t have a table for us. Hostess asked if we wouldn’t mind sitting in the bar and share a long table with others. We said we’d prefer our own table, and still she sat us at the long table. We felt like we were taking up otherwise usable space. Food was delicious, but service was slow. Server didn’t really check on us much which was a shame cuz food is quick to be served but takes a while to order.

This is one of my favorite local restaurants. If you can make it for 'wine down Wednesday', bottles are half price. The menu always has something new, but the 'oldies' are good , too.

From the moment we walked it we felt comfortable. Cozy place. Brick exposure with warm lighting. Nikki was just amazing. Our waiter was exceptional. Food quality was amazing. Nice flavor. Decent pricing. Portions could be a little bit larger. We will DEFINITELY be back. So glad we tried it.

Excellent meal. We had a bunch of different tapas and all were wonderful. Veal meatballs were fabulous. Arugula and prosciutto pizza is always great. Ragu and polenta is perfection. The only downside is that the main dining room is always a bit too warm. Need more A/C.

Are the steak and fish specials on Saturday. They were average at best. I should have stuck with first choice which was a burger!

We had a delightful dinner at Davanti Entoteca. The service was great. Our server really listened to the pace we were interested in. Our gathering is of long time friends who wanted to chat as much as we wanted to eat. He recognized this and let us enjoy ourselves. And the food was excellent! Small plates ordered about three at a time to share. We ended up having about five courses. Including dessert! What a lovely restaurant. Cant wait to go back!!

Great food and amazing service, especially for happy hour! The pizza could have been better in terms of the melted cheese, especially for Chicago’s standards. However, I will be back and enjoyed the atmosphere.

We went for the Sunday Bloody Mary Brunch and had the Hangover Cure (even though we hadn't been out the night before!). But it's a delicious egg dish, with crispy fried potatoes...and your Bloody Mary is included. You can definitely make 2 drinks from the amount of vodka you get, and the do-it-yourself Bloody Mary bar has just about everything you could want to put in!
We sat outside since it was a really beautiful day, even though the patio is right on the parking lot - it was great.

This is our third experience with Davanti, once in Chicago and twice in Western Springs. We enjoy everything about this place, the rustic ambiance, the walls of wine bottles, the distressed wood floor --all designed to feel like a bit of Italy. Of course, the food is delicious and several notches above the typical Italian Restaurant. The service is always friendly and competent. It is a fantastic dining experience!!!

Lovely upscale place with creative menu to have a lunch or brunch and some conversation with a friend. Never been there for dinner, but I'm sure it would be just as nice. Ate indoors, but looked like a very nice outdoor dining space, as well. Gratis parking a definite plus. Also looked like there is a very nice area for a private function.

Waited at least 40 mins for our food. We ordered an app...didn't come until after entrees. Waiter forgot to put it in but made up for it with bringing us a dessert.

This is one of our favorite places, but tonite was not very good. Server was not very attentive and we had to wait many times for him to come to our table. The chicken dish we had was flavorful, but the chicken was over cooked. We asked for a desert menu and after 10 minutes at least we did not see one so we asked for our check. We did speak to the manager and hew apologized and said he would talk to the server and chef. We will try them again hoping this was just abad night.
