This was our 1st time here. Now that we are finally able to eat inside at a restaurant I wanted to go somewhere where we had never been before and try something we had never eaten in a restaurant before. We both ordered the octopus and it was delicious! Because of Covid restrictions the dining room was full but we were able to sit at the bar which was fine. If we hadn't sat at the bar we would have never seen the limoncello that was on tap. We had that as well and it was great. Our waiter told us that they make it fresh and it was delicious. My husband who is Italian said that was the best limoncello he'd had. Everything about dinner here on Valentine's Day was wonderful. Look forward to coming back again soon.

When we arrived for our reservation the Hostess took our temperatures before coming in, then seated us shortly afterwards. The restaurant smelled wonderful so we were very excited to eat. Our foot was absolutely amazing! Unfortunately, our waiter only came to our table twice the entire night which made the experience poor. It could have been because it was a busy night which is understandable, but this is what made our experience bad.

I took my mother here for a birthday lunch. She had the polenta and ragu. The meat was tender and the polenta was done just right. I ordered the Hindi Pomo door and the dish was so flavorful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice lunch. Would love to go back for dinner and sample their extensive wine list. Service was impeccable. The cherry on top was the white chocolate mousse we shared as a dessert...absolutely divine!

We will definitely frequent this restaurant. The food, drinks, service and decor was better than perfect. My only suggestion would be to monitor the volume of the music throughout the restaurant. We had a speaker right above us and it was a bit loud. So minor. Can’t wait to head back since we saw a neighboring table be served burgers which looked amazing.

Great time in a rustic Italian setting. The polenta with pork shoulder ragu was the perfect starter and the octopus with green beans and potatoes is a must! We look forward to our next visit and loved everything about this restaurant!

Had been a long time since I dined at a restaurant as COVID19 has changed our lifestyles. But finally tried the outdoor seating at Davanti. Had a very good experience. The service was really good and the out door seating was pretty warm and the tables were spaced out. The food was pretty good with the perfect portions. Would definitely recommend.

Service was a little off tonight, had to ask for silverware and napkins, had to ask for water. The burrata starter is outstanding but the wine we chose was just okay ans the lobster pasta needed salt. Stick with buratta and pizzas here in the future.

We take the 50 minute trek to dine here because it is worth the trip. Our menu food choices here have varied but we have yet to be anything other than very pleased with all selections. The polenta, which is served with their daily ragu is the creamiest we have found anywhere, and it is always a delight. The beet salad is simple, but the sauces that accompany it make it an "always order" when we are there. We like the Octopus dish as well, it is top quality! The wine list is extensive and growing and we were pleased to have one of the managers really take us through the list and get us to the perfect final choice. The Brown butter blondie desert is worth a try. It's really nice....and they have 20 year port as well!

Ate dinner here on New Years Eve. As usual, the food was excellent. Our server was very attentive. COVID protocols were followed. We ate inside but outside tent seating was also available. Davanti is on the pricy side but the food and service are top notch.
