My husband & I made reservations two weeks in advance for our 16th anniversary. Reservations were for 6:30. Still standing in overcrowded doorway at 7:00. Felt like an over crowded college bar. Service was terrible.

Davanti’s menu is a treat! We enjoyed being able to share appetizers, small plates, salads and entrees. The Ricotta and honeycomb toast, pork ragout, and roasted Brussels sprouts with pancetta and onions all were delicious. Very good wine list with reasonable prices by the bottle or glass. Happy hour menu available before 6pm. We went on a week night and did not feel rushed. Friendly greeters and servers. Adjacent parking lot and location across from train station are convenient pluses. Cozy Enoteca ambiance.

Our server was great, we asked for recommendations on food and we got everything he recommended and every course was excellent. He definitely made the dinner experience much better, would go back for sure, but would only go Friday or Saturday because those are the only days he works.

The food here is good, as expected from Enoteca experiences. The service was not very good at all. First we had to wait 20-minutes for our reserved table (we were accommodated with a glass of wine, which was nice for us, but not our two kids), then we waited 15-minutes for a server. The server messed up our kids order, which had to be sent back, then we waited for nearly 40-minutes to get a burger (other appetizer items came quickly), which lead us to believe that the server forgot to put in the order. Then we waited 20-minutes for ice cream for our kids. The Ragu/Polenta of the day, was like Sloppy Joes poured on an amazing Polenta, but not very good overall. Salad was good, and burger, once we finally received it was amazing!

Started our meal with the cauliflower steak which was delicious. Our dinner entrees were very good! The only thing I didn’t like was that one server was working carrying out one plate at a time and we didn’t get our dinner at the same time. I had to wait 8-10 min for my husbands dish to come out before we ate, this also happened when I was there before having brunch. But overall it was a good experience I would probably go back again.

We had reservations for a birthday dinner for the night before. Our reservation was cancelled by the restaurant because it was being bought out for the night by a company. The manager called me & said he would send a gift card to cover our expenses & for the inconvenience. I never received the gift cards & no discount was given on the night i re-made the reservation for. This was disappointing...but was still a great meal & ambiance was excellent...very cozy restaurant. Our waitress was very helpful and kind.

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.

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.
