We have dined at the Taylor street location 20 times over the years. Our children went to St Ignatius so it was convenient. We missed the food and decided to drive out to Western Springs
Unfortunately, I have to say we love our 3 old stand by dishes, but the red snapper and risotto were inferior.
Fish was overcooked and the risotto was just o.k. The bill was $235 with tip. This dining experience unfortunately left us underwhelmed mainly because the food was not up to par with Taylor Street.

We celebrated my birthday at Davanti Enoteca on a rainy Tuesday night, causing it to be fairly quiet. The meal and service were outstanding! Their polenta special, which is usually served with pork, was served with Italian sausage in a red sauce. Oh my gosh-so flavorful! The burrata appetizer, and prosciutto and arugula pizza, were both so good. Best of all, our server treated me to a delicious dessert. I'd go back tonight if I could:)

For outdoor seating, it was really loud in the tent and there was no air flow. So, we don't see how it is safer than dining indoors, which isn't something we feel safe doing. My date and I couldn't have a conversation because of how loud it was. The waiter and menu didn't indicate that everything was a la carte and we didn't see any sides to order. Our entrees came with only meat on the plate. Our favorite part was the special bruschetta. I was excited to go here based on great recommendations from friends. Unfortunately, it was just okay for us. We don't plan on going back.

2nd time we've been here and no drop off in quality or value. Came with a different couple this time and as with the first couple/visit they were equally impressed. Our server did a great job even though I think he was servicing the entire outdoor area himself.

Met up for Friday Happy Hour and was seated at a table along Wolf Road. Our server, Christian, was excellent. Super friendly and approached us politely as we needed to have masks on when interacting with him. Consistently good food, and always nice to get a taste of the wine you're considering before deciding. Thanks for a great start to the weekend!

The food was fantastic. We had the Ricotta Vasi, Crispy Brussels Sprouts and the daily special Spetzel Carbonara. All three were delicious, but the Spetzel Carbonara was especially tasty. The tables are well spread out so we had no issues there. Service was great. All round great experience again.

Love Davanti. Tonight food was just OK. Service was a little slow but that might be because I was a party of 1 which I am experiencing all around not getting equal attention. I would like restaurants to think and give consideration for single diners.

We had yet another great dining experience at Davanti. The focaccia di Recco and the seafood linguine are my favorites. They now have heaters in their patio, which means that we will continue going there at least through the fall.

We booked Davanti with high hopes and great expectations. We are from the Frankfort/Orland park area and often drive 45 minutes each weekend as we a true foodies looking for a great meal. Davanti was the best "first night restaurant experience" is several years. We are just a party of two, but we are "tasters" so we ordered 3 appetizers and 3 main course dinners and they were all fabulous. The Polenta Ragu was served with slow roasted pork shank and was spectacular. The polenta was unbelievable. The Orecchiette Verdue (with chicken) was excellent and the Octopus, albeit a little spicey was a hit as well. The Veal meatballs, Beet Salad and the special Bruschette were our starters and were a great combination. Our server was "Leo" and he and his helpers always kept our wine glasses full and he had a great happy attitude which is always an added pleasure nowadays. We also really liked the background music. An uptempo dance-like beat but with a perfectly set "low volume" allowed both the enjoyment of the atmosphere, and the privacy of table conversation. Very well done!!!! We will be back soon. Thanks to all who made it a great evening.

Had to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated.

During dinner our water glasses were filled with Salt Water!! Not sure why that happened.!! They cleared our glasses and gave us bottled water.

Noise level a little high. Screaming kids.

Probably will not go back.

The food was spicy. The patio was concrete Berriers on blacktop

The menu is not written in English. The waiter was slow and not attentive to our table at all. We had to ask for drink refills

The water provided for the table was warm and had no ice

This was a complete waste of $117

From the phone call requesting outdoor seating through the final bite of food this was a memorable experience for our group.
Outdoor seating request was handled flawlessly and graciously and the food was superb. For our entrees our group had the Pork w/Polenta, the Davanti Burger and two orders of the Rigatoni w/Salsiccia. For sides we had the Roasted Beets and the Crispy Brussel Sprouts. From the first bite everyone raved about the delicious taste of the food.
Service was a little over-attentive with trying to clear plates when diners were not done with their food but that is a nit compared to all the good things. Plus the entire meal, including a bottle of wine, was very reasonably priced = good value.
We shall return!
