Davanti Enoteca - Western Springs
The food was very good, the service excellent. The menu was confusing; fortunately our server helped us out.
Amazing food, great service and beautiful atmosphere!
Food is great! They never disappoint!
We always take college students who haven't experienced a lot of different cuisines or types of food there. They tried a variety of dishes for the first time and really enjoyed themselves. It's a bit expensive but it's worth it.
Wonderful in every possible way!!!
We always have a good time at Davanti Enoteca. They offer good value and quality Italian dishes with convenient location with ample of parking
Food was amazing. Staff super friendly! Loved it
Great meal. Had our 2 kids under the age of 3 and was very welcomed by the staff. Jamie was very nice
Wonderful variety, attentive wait staff, nicely placed tables. Good atmosphere and we will go again!
Had dinner with 3 girlfriends. The food was very tasty and I highly recommend this restaurant. Our young waiter was attentive and sociable. I always look forward to a nice evening at Davanti, warm, cozy atmosphere and good food. Thank you fora pleasant experience. Joy
We had to sit in the bar area with small children at a high top. We were 10 minutes late for the reservation.
Although, that part was our fault, I wish there were other accommodations to celebrate our granddaughter.
Service was excellent. The food was ok. Basic pasta fares. Ordered 6 different dishes. Grilled octopus was the best. Everything else was ok.
I have been here ten or more times in the past and I usually look forward to the next time immediately. This time, despite outstanding service, I didn't feel the same way.
I am reluctant to give this place a “good review” even though our visit was NOT terrible.
We had made reservations and were seated promptly when that time came. Our service was incredibly slow, but I blame it on poor managerial staffing to the restaurants sections. Our server was also the employee operating the bar and had a dozen other tables to attend to. I do NOT blame the server for their being spread too thin to give adequate service, that blame belongs to the shift manager who could not see that they had an employee who was treading water. Our server was very attentive, knowledgeable and accommodating. Maybe the restaurant usually has slower Thursday nights and so they had scheduled themselves to be staffed light? Maybe they are light staffed in general? Either way, a paying customer shouldn’t have to make excuses for why they will accept slow service. I say this confidently, because I have been a server before so I understand the business.
The food that was good, was GOOD! The food that was not, was NOT. I will not go into details, but I will suggest never ordering the Polpo Al Rafano. The octopus was extremely tough and over cooked. So much so that the tip of the leg was actually crispy enough to snap off. The fingerling potatoes were undercooked yet charred on the outside. While the dish sounded appetizing to read, it fell on it’s face in execution. The Tagliatelle Con Gamberi was excellent, as well as the Meat and Cheese Board and the Ricotta Vasi.
What upsets me the most is that this was our anniversary dinner and I would’ve honestly been happier just going through the drive through somewhere and staying in and enjoying time with my spouse. But hey, it is a night we will never forget I suppose.
This place continues to improve its food and service. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable drink and meal. We’ll be back.
This was our first visit to Davanti Enoteca, and it DEFINITELY won't be our last. The service and food was exceptional. We all loved the concept of sharing the dishes. That gave us an opportunity to try many of their entrees.
Food was very good, The pasta portions were very small for the price but everything else was wonderful... I the pasta flavor was very good but for $16.00 you really only had a side portion. Our server was nice but half the time we could not find him.....We had to get our own salt and ask for drinks a few times.
Introducing friends to Davanti. They loved it. Had prosciutto meatball, ricotta worth honey comb, chicken liver pate, and truffle fries fir appetizers. For entrees, we again shared the following: polenta with beef raging, Caesar salad, pasta and shrimp. Weak items were the meatball and the polenta. Yellow polenta is much better than the white one they serve, on the other hand, the pasta was the standout of the entrees. Delicious grapefruit and berry sorbet were perfect desserts.
Service was excellent!
Great service & food!
Amazing food!! The ravioli was amazing not a lot of food but amazing quality and we loved it!
Great gathering place for friends. However, We made a reservation on OpenTable the day before, but when we arrived they didn’t have a table for us. Hostess asked if we wouldn’t mind sitting in the bar and share a long table with others. We said we’d prefer our own table, and still she sat us at the long table. We felt like we were taking up otherwise usable space. Food was delicious, but service was slow. Server didn’t really check on us much which was a shame cuz food is quick to be served but takes a while to order.
Food and service was good, limited but creative menu, and lots of families with young children.
We will try again someday. Have had great service and great food in the past.
Had a very knowledgeable waiter who recommended great wines
We continue to enjoy every visit to Davanti Enoteca! The food is great and the service is too. The manager always remembers us and treats the entire family so well. Thanks and we will see you soon.
Best burger around!
As usual, fabulous food, service, and ambiance at Davanti. From start to finish, it is an exemplary dining experience. A must eat restaurant.
This my first time at this restaurant. Great service & food was excellent. We will be back!
Great meal and great experience! The staff was excellent and very friendly.
We love Davanti and unfortunately always seem to get the same things and need to force ourselves to try chef’s newer items because the menu is great
Love our go to so much it’s our comfort place
Davanti is one of our favorite restaurants in the suburbs. The service is fantastic and the food is great.
Food was great but service was slow.
Waiter seemed to forget about is even though it wasn't crowded.
This is one of my favorite local restaurants. If you can make it for 'wine down Wednesday', bottles are half price. The menu always has something new, but the 'oldies' are good , too.
From the moment we walked it we felt comfortable. Cozy place. Brick exposure with warm lighting. Nikki was just amazing. Our waiter was exceptional. Food quality was amazing. Nice flavor. Decent pricing. Portions could be a little bit larger. We will DEFINITELY be back. So glad we tried it.
The waiter was excellent! He was attentive and knowledge.
Excellent food and fantastic service.
Excellent meal. We had a bunch of different tapas and all were wonderful. Veal meatballs were fabulous. Arugula and prosciutto pizza is always great. Ragu and polenta is perfection. The only downside is that the main dining room is always a bit too warm. Need more A/C.
Great food, great service!
Are the steak and fish specials on Saturday. They were average at best. I should have stuck with first choice which was a burger!
