The service was wonderful. Our server was helpful and professional. Everyone was friendly and the food was delicious. The only drawback was we had to wait over 20 minutes after are reservation to be seated.

It’s a great neighborhood find! The food is fresh and the atmosphere is cozy . The volume is very loud so if your looking for a quiet place with great food this might not be the right place on a Saturday night because it’s very busy!!! Our server Jamie was absolutely Outstanding and made our meal and visit the Best! I would request when returning to Davanti.

Dining out with two toddlers can be a challenge, but Davanti seated us at a table where we were less likely to disturb others and provided seating for the little guys. Also, their food was brought out quickly giving the four adults time to relax over wine and shared dishes. Good food and service, as always. A very enjoyable family dinner. We will be back.

our waiter was just wonderful!! food excellent as always
only complaint - I had requested the corner booth in the bar (weeks ahead) on the opentable reservation and I feel no effort was made to honor this request. There were 4 of us with xmas gifts, and my sister is hearing impaired, so that space is much more comfortable.

I love Italian food and there's not a heck of a lot of it in this part of the metro area. Davanti does a lot of things right but on this occasion the cacio e pepe was a little too al dente and the sauce was watery as if the pasta hadn't been drained properly. I had the same dish a few weeks ago for lunch at Davanti and it was much better. anyway, i'll keep going b/c the polenta w/ mascarpone and bolognese is out of sight and the wine list is pretty darn nice.

Another pleasant evening at Davanti. Pleasant and personable service was the highlight. Food is good quality and nice variety. Our friends both had minor concerns about the prep of their food which our server offered to return to the chef but overall the concerns were not major. Nice wine for a good price. We will return often.

Four friends met for dinner and we all enjoyed the food. We wanted to be in the smaller room --thinking it would be quiet. However, there was a party of 8+ that was truly having a good time and the noise level was extremely loud. Not that we don't want people to have a good time, but it interfered with us trying to have a conversation about 12 feet away. Would go back.

Our server was great but she had large tables in two rooms and ran around. It made us feel bad to ask for things because she was working so hard. Even with all her tables, she was always pleasant and engaged.

We dined for Thanksgiving lunch. The buffet was filled with fresh, homemade -tasting, salads, pastas, and traditional turkey and sides. The prime rib was perfect as well as the turkey. Both So tender! We arrived at 2:30 and sat immediately. Perfect time to go. Not busy yet.
The service was attentive and friendly. The chef was at the carving station, making sure we were happy with everything. I have been here several times for dinner, will make it our holiday destination.

We waited 40 minutes for a table despite having a reservation. While it's understandable that sometimes things don't go right, I would have expected more interaction from the host. The food left a lot to be desired flavor-wise, and our entrees (one of which was a Caesar salad with no meat) came out 5 minutes apart.

In spite of a big parking lot, there was no place to park. They were running pretty far behind seating reservations. We were warned that it would be so, but I wasn't too happy that the entrees didn't come out even close to at the same time. A bit noisy if you want to have a conversation. That said, they're very nice, it's a nice, cozy dining room, the food is delicious and they were kind about giving us a little birthday treat.

I’ve been here several times and the experience has varied each time. This time I ordered a spaghetti entree dish and the portion was what I’d expect for an appetizer- but at an expensive entree price. And it comes with nothing. I mean nothing- not even bread. There was probably 1/20 of a lb of pasta and bolognese sauce, that fit like a tiny blob in the middle of the dinner plate. How expensive is dry pasta??
As for bread- it’s an ITALIAN restaurant and I had to ask for it, and they brought a dinner plate with four slices of COLD WHITE TOAST on it. ?????
I’ve had a good brunch and lunch there, but this dinner experience was lackluster.

We love this place and were thrilled to get a table at the last minute, thanks to Open Table. We had several items from the regular menu and one of the specials from the evening. Everything was wonderful (except the red sauce that was on the meatballs, it was so bland). The wine was amazing and the special wines open by the glass for that evening only were especially good. Service was friendly and efficient. Price was comparable to what we have paid nearby for less tasty food. Love the atmosphere. It is bustling but still easy to have a conversation with friends. We will be back!

First time having lunch at Davanti Enoteca - Western Springs and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food is fresh and creative. They are also willing to accommodate dietary restrictions. I had quite a few options as a gluten free diner. The food did not disappoint and the location is perfect for meeting friends for lunch.
