Good value for good food.
Our waiter got our drink order wrong twice, then forgot our appetizer altogether, which was the main reason we chose this restaurant. The food was mediocre and the service terrible
Food was amazing, & the staff are always so polite!
Delicious food, especially the truffle, taleggio and leek pizza!
Service was wonderful and we appreciated option to eat outside.
Service was lovely and they surprised us with a birthday dessert for one member of the party.
Covid did put a damper on the ambience and inside noice level but hoping this is temporary- they used to have pretty plants and lights in the rented areas which sadly seem gone now but hoping that is temporary!
All four of us loved the meal!
Just not great all around. Felt very low effort. Won’t be back.
Very fun place with good food & cocktails. Great for a fun date or girls night.
Food was exceptional
And great service great and great atmosphere! Great go to for friends dinner or a glass of wine with must have goat cheese focaccia!!
I have been to Davanti before and really liked it but it has been awhile. I got the pollo Marsala on special and the chicken was quite tough and the flavor was so so. The pasta that came with it was bland. My husband got the lasagna and said that was pretty mediocre as well.
Great for a Friday night date!
Food sub par for price ..
Service and ambience good
It was our anniversary and they didn’t remember
Sat outside, live music playing - heater was set up next to table. Food was perfect - this place never disappoints! Love it.
Great food and great service!
Fabulous meal and service! One of my favorite restaurants! Wish there was one in South Orange County.
Thank you Pamela! :)
Tried and true. Never disappoints. The burrata and prosciutto and arugula pizza are go to favorites. Wish they would bring the egg toast back because that was a F’ing favorite of all of us.
Loved the flat bread stuffed with ricotta & served with honey. So yummy! Wait staff were friendly. Will be back
Waiter didn’t wear their mask, which made the experience a little uncomfortable, but was very attentive! Food was great and timely.
Will return in the future
Food was great. Service was great, very attentive.
Great food and service! Best Italian in the area with options for the entire family. Pretty authentic as well.
This place makes me feel like I was back in Italy enjoying the late night dinner with great fresh food. We ordered meat pizza, wedge salad, grilled and lemon chicken pasta to share for birthday and they were all on point.
Great atmosphere. Amazing friendly staff. Good food and drinks
Pasta dishes were not what they use to be. Service was ok but food brought out in wrong order and therefore gets cold before eating.
Had rather low expectations since its an Italian restaurant in a mall. But... WOW! Feel free to raise your bar on this place - they'll jump way over it. Outstanding service, food is so fresh and delicious, great atmosphere - it's just an overall very positive dining experience. We'll go back over, and over again to try other items on their menu. This place can go head-to-head with any of the top Italian restaurants around - and, they'll probably win you over too!
The food was AMAZING! Service was fantastic’
I chose to celebrate another birthday at my favorite restaurant and it was amazing and very memorable. I brought my best friend here for the first time and she also enjoyed it a lot. The entire staff was amazing! Thanks for making my birthday special!!
Jorge, our server, and the assistant staff were attentive and accommodating. The food has gotten more delicious since the last time we went there! Thank you for making my bday so fun!
Good wine, food and service. The music was too loud for conversation. The manager was kind enough to adjust the volume, but the volume went back up later. Still, overall An enjoyable evening.
Service was ok. Food was horrific. Little Italy location has way better food. Heard Del Mar had changed ownership. Not sure if that’s it.
Had a great time! All staff were so polite and welcoming. Our server, Jorge, was awesome!
love this place - great food whether you get entrees or share a variety of smaller plates. Excellent fried brussels and arugula salad. I also love the orrechette.
First time going for brunch and loved the small but complete menu with something for everyone (sweet, savory, healthy or indulgent)! Enjoyed the $20 bottle of bubbles and your choice of juice to mix. Perfect Sunday brunch experience.
The food was okay somewhat subpar. Greeter was very rude, we originally made a reservation for a party of four but 2 people couldnt come make it ao it was just two. She was very rude and said that we “should have known better” however our server was kind and very attentive. The food was not that great and seemed to salty.
Nice restaurant sat on the deck, live music. The salmon and chicken cacciatore were delicious, and service was great! We will definitely go again when we are in town.
I have dined here many a time and food is consistent good. The pizza is the best thin crust ever and theirs salad are amazing! The only thing they are not good at is getting our takeout order correct- they consistently make errors in our order. Obviously not enough annoyed to avoid the food and ambiance here- we love it!!
Great spot and great food! We were in town for a soccer tournament and looking for a nice sit down meal. Service was amazing and food was delicious!
My pasta dish was mush and inedible and was sent back and they didn’t take it off the bill. It took long between drink service and not crowded. Very disappointing and.would not return.
Love this place.
