I loved it here! It was the first dinner after quarantine and I'm glad we picked Davanti. Our server was very nice and helpful. The food came out quickly and was delicious!

Davonti enoteca is a gem in the heart of western springs. The menu combines interesting textures and flavors. The butternut squash, farro, goat cheese and hazelnut side is ridiculously good. The ricotta and honey appetizer is comfort food at its best and I could not get enough of the ricotta dumplings.

Went here for a birthday brunch and it was fabulous. The Bloody Mary bar is loaded with SO many options, stuffed olives, thick cut bacon, asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto, celery, carrots, and fresh shaved horseradish 😜. I had an egg white omelette that was delicious and others had truffle egg toast and eggs Benedict. Everything was delicious and service was prompt but never rushed. Prices very reasonable for value. Highly recommended!

The sheer mass of children in there can be a turn off to adult customers who want to enjoy a nice quiet dinner with a glass of wine. Although we love the place, sorry to report it resembled Chuck E Cheese's at one point. We praised the server who asked and moved us to the bar dining area. Food was exceptional.

We are regular customers here, but Saturday night there was a private party in the bar area.
The bar and bar area was closed to all other customers. We had to stand in hallway waiting for the complete party to arrive for our reservations. Then we had to sit in a very crowded dining room. It was not a pleasant experience as it usually is

We had a reservation for 3 people and still had to wait 10/15 minutes when we got there.
My shrimp pasta dish that was supposedly handmade pasta was dry, chewy and not flavorful.
Everything else was delicious though.

Absolutely loved the food, the atmosphere and the service. We were 4 middle-aged couples and sat in the semi-private room by the entrance with the high-top table.

Serena, our server, was awesome! You could tell she was having a busy night, but she still made time to be personal at every table. The food was delicious. I ordered the risotto and my wife ordered the salmon. Both of were very pleased at the quickness to get the food out to us. In the end, Serena made the recommendation for the brown butter blondie, which was phenomenal!!

Chicken liver pate is to die for and well as the burger. Every time we come here we wonder why we do not eat here more often. I had the chicken risotto for the first time and that was worth coming back for as well. Service is always attentive without being pushy. Overall a great place.

We've enjoyed Davanti several times before. On this visit, we arrived early for our Valentine's Day reservation, intending to have a drink at the bar, but they were able to seat us right away. Host/Hostess folks were great. Our server, Jamie, was outstanding. He was really friendly, energetic, informative and made some great recommendations. Prompt and attentive, but did not rush us at all. Food was outstanding, service was outstanding. We'll definitely be back.

The best part of this visit was the fact that it was Valentines Day and we were not restricted to a usual
limited holiday menu. The hen of the woods is an excellent new item on the menu. An eclectic selection
of Italian wines continues.

Four of us celebrated the New Year at dinner on January 1st at DavantiEnoteca. Everything was great! We received excellent service from Fabiola and the bus boys, and our meal was outstanding. The Burrata appetizer, polenta with ragu, pasta, and pizza dishes were so flavorful and tasted great! I’d go back to eat there any day of the week!

The food was very good, but the restaurant was not prepared for the crowd. We ordered the Polenta which came out nicely, but then our server wasn't back to our table for awhile and we were waiting for the bread that came with it. When our dinner came out, two of the four came out and we had to seek out the staff to find out where the other two dinners were as we were a table of 4. We enjoyed the dinner, but hope the next time we visit, the service will be better. I was contacted by the manager after this review and said that he was going to send a gift card to give them a chance to provide a better dining experience. It never arrived.

Hostess a little rude; sat us (5) at a table with 2 doors on either side when other tables available; appetizers were good; another waiter spilled a jar of ranch dressing?? that almost got all over one of our coats; entrees didn’t meet expectations-shrimp pasta was a terrible bland presentation and looked unappetizing; orecchiette pasta had taste of burnt garlic and no lemon; chicken dish was weird; all in all terrible food sub par service—we won’t be back
