My Epicuric family ordered small plates to share: warm olives, artichoke dip with crispy pita chips and flat bread, cheese and sausage platter. The descriptions do not do justice to the quality of the food. Everything was exquisite. Service was excellent with more than one waiter at our table for 7. I recommend this restaurant.

Having never been to Chicago before I was lucky to have lunch at this quaint restaurant located in the lobby of the Marriot where I was staying. Trying the simple cheese pizza was a great idea. With a very tasty sauce and a wonderful cheese topping this was one great pizza. My business partners all enjoyed their meals and the... More

Decided to try this place out for lunch today. We were seated right away, but took about 10 minutes for the server to come to our table. We ordered a pizza and eggs with breakfast potatoes. The pizza came out first and pretty quickly. The eggs came out 20 minutes later, which makes no sense because eggs take 2 minutes... More

Great ambiance, wonderful food, but wish we knew how to order better! Had bruchetta then a Rigotoni/sausage dish that was delicious. A European couple next to us had at least 3/4 small dishes to enjoy. We knew the format, but really didn't. Very busy by 6:30 and high noise level but food wonderful!

Great atmosphere, stellar food, excellent service, and friendly staff. This casual relaxed Italian small plate restaurant leaves you wanting for nothing, unless you want to try one of their delicious desserts.

Tucked on a street off Michigan Avenue, the small plate delight has a menu is fun to try and excellent to eat. Our second visit was as good as the first. Wait staff gave good advice on not ordering too much food. Pizza and salad was quite enough and it was exciting to see what others were eating. Is a... More

What a little gem. The food was was delicious and service was perfection. I had the yellowfin tuna sandwich with shoestring fries. Very fresh and tasty. Servers were also very attentive. Granted, they weren't very busy for lunch, but normally when you travel alone for business, you start not expecting much as restaurants get a little complacent knowing they will... More

This was recommended to us by a friend. It was ok but the food was not a meal but just a menu of plates. Tired of that. The steak was the best tasting but some of the dishes were just too strange ijn regards to thier ccombinations.

We walked into Davanti not knowing it and left happy. The waiter explained that their style is sharing plates but we were looking for a less leisurely meal, so three of us had linguini with crab and sea urchin, which was seasoned to our taste with just the right amount of sauce. My husband had the wild mushroom pizza and... More

Ok so Davante has multiple locations. Taylor street is by far the best. We had the cacio de Pepe, the rigatoni, the ricotta dumplings, focaccia, and the grilled octopus. Everything was really good. Everything. Service was also really prompt and friendly. I liked it so much that I decided to go to Hubbard location. That was a big mistake. Stick... More
