Having previously had not very good experiences in the davanti chain I was dubious about even attempting a visit to this one but after friends had been and raved about it we decided to take a punt. I have to say I am well and truly eating my words. The staff are fantastic, the food is amazing and the wine... More

Brought the family on a Sunday evening, some of us had the dinner, one chicken, one beef - both delicious! So tasty. My mother had the linguine lobster, it was amazing and beautifully presented. The staff are brilliant, they took the time to make ourselves and my children especially, feel very well looked after. Can't wait to come back again... More

This was our first visit and won't rush back. Personally didn't think the menu was great but most chose pasta dishes. They came out pretty much luke warm and not much sauce and too much olive oil found it difficult to eat. The pizza was pretty bland. Unusually for us there was a lot of food left over. It's a...

Just the Italian job! Upbeat atmosphere, Italian staff and down to earth, reasonably priced food. Couldn't have asked for more - oh the wine was particularly good too! With a couple of restaurants in the area, you could be spoilt for choice!

Forget chains like ASK or Prezzo, where you are as likely to be greeted by a Czech as an Italian - this is a proper Italian restaurant, where your arrival is greeted by (presumably) the owner, a grey-haired Italian man with the look and accent (but not the threatening atmosphere!) of a character from The Godfather. Most of the staff... More

Given that nearly every restaurant on this street has gone bust (mainly because it's a dump) kudos to Davanti for staying alive, and popular too. When we arrived we only had a hour to eat before our table would be given to a party that had reserved it. We could see why it was so popular; the ambiance was lovely,... More

For entree we had a sharing platter of bruschetta, potato skins, olives etc and for mains we shared two delicious pizzas! You also get a glass of wine each which is just... More

The best Italian I have ever been in. Food really was heavenly, all of the staff were so lovely! If you are in Whitley Bay and you don't eat here you are seriously missing out on something wonderful.
