I would love to give this place a 4.5 Not a huge menu selection but I think there's plenty for anyone to choose from. I had an amazing bartender/ waitress. Wasn't able to get her name but she had an amazing accent. So my experience was I orders the Davanti Burger medium well, with a Chicago Sofie! ( beer) the... More

Davanti Enoteca was the best meal we had on our trip to Chicago. An early brunch offered us crispy brussel sprouts (topped with an egg), yogurt topped with fruit, and truffle egg in toast . A glass of wine topped it all off, with the best coffee ever afterwards. Service was exceptionally great. The place has a new, clean, rustic... More

Pleasant, quick service. Delicious food: Bruschetta was like a loaded baked potato: with bechamel sauce, coin-sized potato slices, bacon and green onions. A-. SO nice to taste fresh basil in April (in the calabrese sandwich). I miss my garden. A-. Sausage and rigatoni (but that's not what it's called on the menu!) was excellent. A. Nice, quiet atmosphere, with walls... More

Stumbled upon this place and decided to have branch here. A diverse menu with many good choices. Not sure I liked my burger (too greasy), but the rest of the group seemed to enjoy their selections. Good Bloody Mary bar on Sunday. May come back to try something else.

Recently we, a group of 10 friends got together for dinner here. Lively atmosphere with a good vibe! Excellent choice of wine to pair with your food. Since we are all vegetarians, waiter was very helpful in selecting the items from the menu. I would recommend this place.

I never ceased to be amused by restaurants, like this one, which try to offer a real Italian meal also have blasting the best of Aretha Franklin and Temptations.... Notable Italian crooners!

The brunch menu has some awesome choices. Try the truffle toast, and definitely order the bacon with tomatoes. Maybe get one French toast (with bananas and nutella) for the whole table. Pizza with prosciutto and arugula was excellent, too.
