Davanti Enoteca - Western Springs
Great meal as always.
Fabulous food and the service was exceptional!
This is our third experience with Davanti, once in Chicago and twice in Western Springs. We enjoy everything about this place, the rustic ambiance, the walls of wine bottles, the distressed wood floor --all designed to feel like a bit of Italy. Of course, the food is delicious and several notches above the typical Italian Restaurant. The service is always friendly and competent. It is a fantastic dining experience!!!
Lovely upscale place with creative menu to have a lunch or brunch and some conversation with a friend. Never been there for dinner, but I'm sure it would be just as nice. Ate indoors, but looked like a very nice outdoor dining space, as well. Gratis parking a definite plus. Also looked like there is a very nice area for a private function.
Waited at least 40 mins for our food. We ordered an app...didn't come until after entrees. Waiter forgot to put it in but made up for it with bringing us a dessert.
This is one of our favorite places, but tonite was not very good. Server was not very attentive and we had to wait many times for him to come to our table. The chicken dish we had was flavorful, but the chicken was over cooked. We asked for a desert menu and after 10 minutes at least we did not see one so we asked for our check. We did speak to the manager and hew apologized and said he would talk to the server and chef. We will try them again hoping this was just abad night.
Great looking bar and plenty of outside space as well. Food was very good. Appetizers were yummy. Lots of food.
Service was very good, we got seated right away. The food was tasty, nice offerings at an elevated level.
Great service and great food. Our waiter Tim was wonderful. Will definitely go back.
We went for Saturday brunch and had a blast in the make-your-own Bloody Mary bar, it was well stocked. The food was very tasty and the service was excellent.
As always, food is good and ambiance is great. Don't get seated in the back room - kind of isolated.
For it being one of the busiest nights of the week, the staff did a fabulous job of seating us quickly and getting the food out on time without a hitch! Props to that. I have to say though, I was a bit disappointed that our server pushed a few times for us to get a more expensive bottle of wine even after we made it clear that we planned on taking advantage of the 1/2 off bottles under $80 promotion. It felt very forced and not what we wanted. Other than that, food was phenomenal and great service. Will return
My child ordered a pizza from the children's menu. Our food took awhile, but when it finally arrived, no kid's pizza. Must have been missed? He had to wait for his food & naturally, so did we then because who would eat when your child doesn't have food.
Davantis is always great. Service never disappoints and food is awesome. Love the Roman artichokes and grilled calamari. The cheese platter was just what I needed after a busy day at work, along with wine, of course. Be back soon!
We visit regularly, food great, variety also keeps it interesting.
Service is first rate.
This is the first restaurant in years that my wife enjoyed all we tried. Rare pleasure. Service was slower than it should have been. Probably because when I first came in, our waiter Ben said he would come back to the table as soon as he could. We said, "no rush". I meant that to be nice, rather than set the tone for the evening. But overall, everyone from the hostess to the bus staff to the waiter were friendly and helpful. Table for 2 is not large enough for 2 adults, though. When we tried to have two entrees to share on the table, with water, drinks, bread plate, etc. on the table, there was not much room left.
We WILL be back and next time, with friends...!
Staff was amazing and very helpful in selecting items. Food was really good, would definitely go back.
Food is a bit salty, but good enough. Not a fan of the ambiance. Service was good and helpful for people with little kids.
Another great dining experience at Davanti!! The service, food and ambiance was excellent as usual. We tried the Roman-style artichoke which is fairly new to the menu, and it was amazing. Definitely get it when you go there along with a ragu, focaccia di Recco, and bruschetta!!!
Good food and nice atmosphere.
Excellent as always!!
Quality all around. Sunday breakfast & Bloody Mary bar outstanding. Bottomless mimosas until 2pm. Wait staff, especially Victoria go out of their way to take good care of you! Thank you for a great dining experience every time we go
Really fun menu. Nice servers. Good drink selection. Dining room is great atmosphere.
Food was great as usual. Love the Wednesday wine special. Service was extremely slow and at times nonexistent.
Always a good time and great food!
Everything we ordered was very delicious and of excellent quality. We will definitely return on our next visit to Western Springs!
Great brunch - fantastic service, it was my brothers birthday and thanks for taking care of the dessert w candle 🕯
I love Davanti. The food is superb and the service is good. I have never had a bad meal here. We had 6 in our party and all were very happy with their meal. My only complaint is it is super noisy
Excellent service, great interior design. Food was good, the octupus was a bit “ spongy”, will definitely come back!!!
We love Davanti! This time, though, our waiter either needs more training or a different job. He was not organized or attentive and walked through the dining room as if he had blinkers on. The food and libations are always great and the staff is generally wonderful. A great place in Western Springs.
We were first time diners and definitely plan to return. Quite busy on a weekend evening which is to be expected considering the high quality dining experience. Our waiter was outstanding and made excellent recommendations (including for our next visit)!
Really unpleasant service and food. Normally love but this was a bummer.
I am a regular there and they are always great. The food, service and atmosphere is perfect.
We love this place, but tonight the service was slower than usual. Hope this is not a trend and just the waiter we had.
Great place for a glass of wine and appetizers though their dinner menu is spectacular. Lovely ambience, amazing wine menu. One of my favorite type of places to go to chat over appetizers!
Service and friendliness were outstanding, and eating on the patio is very nice.
The RISOTTO AL POLLO AFFUMICATO, with Amish roasted chicken, did not have any chicken in it.
Our hummus was good, except it had a very spicy oil in it. If you are not expecting spicy, ask the server.
Overall, they do a great job.
Barbara is a terrific server and always right there when needed. The artichokes were outstanding. The panzanella was good but bread pieces too large and hard to cut, we asked for extra vinaigrette and that helped. We also loved the blonde brownie, OMG! Can't wait to go back!
Food not great, fire and wine much better
I was hosting a client dinner. The service was poor and the food portion sizes were small for the price. The waitperson did not write down any part of the order and consistently failed to deliver what we had ordered. Finally the person busing the table helped us. The waitperson also failed to check back to ensure all was going smoothly. We were there for 3 hours and spent several hundred dollars, I would have hoped for better service. And the offer to look at a dresser menu.
