Nothing special, nothing different or unusual on menu. Fritto misto was fried calamari with one additional small scallop and one baby octopus - for an extra £3 Porchetta average - good gravy, cracklin but pork itself lacking in flavour, no garlic or fennel evident, quite tough and very fatty.

Good Italian restaurant. If you don't book you may not get a table or at least have to wait a long time. That's because it is very good. Also the prices are very reasonable. Have been there several times and the food and service are always excellent.

I'm a regular visitor to Davanti's especially the Whitley Bay branch which is very convenient but also because I love it! I don't think I've ever had a poor meal there but visited last night with a friend and they actually surpassed themselves! We shared the 2 for £20 menu which has great choices, and includes a small glass of... More

We are a party of Rotarians from Blyth who pre-booked tables at this restaurant for a Rotary Club night out with our spouses, partners and friends. It was a belta of a night( for non-Geordies/Northumbrians "belta" means excellent"). Beer and wine at very reasonable prices, good service, splendid food, gargantuan portions. The place is cheerful, inexpensive, but not "cheap" in... More

We decided to have dinner at Davanti's as it was next to our hotel. It was New Year's Eve and very crowded although we had not booked the manager found us a table. We chose a lamb dish and chicken risotto. The food was delicious and well cooked. The staff were very friendly and attentive despite having a restaurant full... More

I've visited Davanti's many times and the food and service has always been good. There's no surprises on the menu, it's good classic Italian fayre, and all the better for that. Reasonably priced too. Expect it to be busy in the evenings, especially during the summer, but it's a bit more relaxed during autumn and winter.
