I visited this charming restaurant last night with friends and my partner. We booked in advance and lucky we did as it was packed all evening (and we did have a short wait for our table). The food was not quick but was very tasty and we all enjoyed our food. I had the fillet steak and chips and so... More

The food was great. The waiters and cook were very engaging. The meals were big enough to share, although we didn't know it at the time, so left very full. Great desserts too!

Booked but had to wait for 30 minutes for table despite empty reassurances from staff, then another 20 minutes before order taken - limited menu - food average - drinks overpriced - very noisy - staff very attentive in response to our courteous dissatisfaction - complimentary coffees - not a relaxing experience - no hurry to return despite its convenience...

Have visited this place on many occasions and plan to do so again and again. By far my favourite day is Sunday as the staff working can never do enough for you. Firstly upon arrival the barman is always happy and attentive and treats you as special. Whilst the staff aren't watching over you they always seem to know when... More

We pulled up outside of Davanti looking for a place to park, the waiter outside didn't have a clue about the surrounding area, he simply shrugged his shoulders, indicated that they were busy, and pointed off into the distance saying that their may be some space down there. Not a great start, but we thought perhaps he was stressed from... More

Stumbled across this place by accident and hadn't booked! The place was full but they did everything to fit us in. The place is warm and inviting and has a real Italian feel. The staff are very attentive and the food is delicious! Will definitely dine there again!

We arrived a little late for service and it was made clear by staff they were doing us a big favour allowing us to eat there. An arrogant waiter strutted about shouting prego prego at other staff amongst other things. This is the second time we tried this place and found it just as bad as the first time. Service... More

We went on Sunday teatime for a family birthday. Staff were lovely and service was attentive. We had a selection of starters and they were ver tasty, potato skins fresh and crispy with three lovely sauces. The antipasto had a good selection and was beautifully presented. I had not had a pizza for ages and I was not disappointed, base... More

Great authentic Italian food. I had a seafood risotto which was excellent. A wide variety of shell fish and fish and the rice was just right. It came with a side order of Italian bread and two dips.
