Good value menu, for early evenings. 2 courses for less than a tenner. I had spicy chicken wings and then a lovely goats cheese pizza. Took my leftovers away with me!!

Was looking for something for an early tea and thought of this as we had been there before albeit some time ago. The place was empty but it was early but that didn't stop the staff behaving as if we were an intrusion into their leisure time.The food was ok but not sufficiently good to take our minds away from...

My family of 7 were actually booked into another restaurant which accidentally has us reserved for the following week so could not fit us in. As luck would have it we were very close to Davanti who could accommodate us without a booking. As it transpired this was the best outcome because the roast beef lunch I ordered was the... More

Waiters/Barmaid were excellent, attentive and fun. My seafood ravioli was incredible. It was a great family meal with the provision of lush celebration cakes, faultless meal, well recommended this place

Went there for the first time yesterday and was really impressed. Food and service were both excellent, and prices are very reasonable. Only negative comment is that the 'Specials' menu seems slightly over-priced compared to the 'a la carte', so I'd just stick to the latter, which really is very good indeed. I ate at a Michelin starred restaurant in... More

First visit to this davanti and it won't be the last. Food was excellent. I always try to have something different as I get quite bored with typical Italian restaurants. This one had an amazing special. A true taste of tuscany it was called. Tuscany sausages cooked with loads of different types of beans and tomato and it came with... More

What a fabulous place, such a large menu to choose from: typical pizzas and pasta, steaks, chicken, seafood. Huge scallops. A very plush restaurant, not expensive but sensibly priced. Excellent service provided, friendly and attentive. Food arrives fairly quickly. Can't fault this place at all.

Went here with my daughter arrived at 5.30 was shown to a table immediately with a man who just grunted "sit here". (He was the manager I take it a oldish guy ) He practically threw some menus at us, and came back within minutes for our order. Food was pretty much average, starters of calamari and bruschetta, sirloin steaks... More
