Sunday Brunch in Little Italy

Good meeting spot for Brunch on the weekend. Nice Bloody Mary Bar where you make your own creation. Street parking only, (you have to feed the meter). Food is large portions and came out quick and hot. Service is fine, but went during off perk hours. I recommend this place when you are in the... read more

Food is large portions and came out quick and hot. Service is fine, but went during off perk hours. I recommend this place when you are in the area to try!

Our waiter, Greg made this an enjoyable evening beginning when I questioned about 2 different wines & his offering me a taste of each. He was equally helpful with my selecting what to try. I started with the roasted beets, walnuts salad. Very fresh & tasty. Then had the one giant raviolo with spinach & ricotta filling, brown butter &... More

Another pleasant and wonderful find. My nephew needed to have pasta in preparation for the Chicago Marathon the next morning. We decided to dine in Little Italy and selected this restaurant cuz of good reviews and we were not disappointed. We especially enjoyed the truffle egg toast and Riccio de mare e Granchio(linguini, sea urchin, crab). My nephews , son... More

Stopped here for supper before heading to a concert. The place was very busy, especially for a Tuesday but we called ahead and managed to get a reservation. The food was so flavourful. We ordered six small plates for the three of us and it was plenty. The service was fast and friendly, our waiter helped us when we didn't... More

Very nicely decorated Italian restaurant with fast, friendly service. The bruchetta and pizza were excellent. Good assortment of wines. If you have a sweet tooth, try the glazed, infused doughnut.

Treated ourselves to one of the best Italian restaurants on Taylor Street and in Chicago for a pre-game dinner before heading to the a United Center. Pleasantly surprised that the Tuesday's special was the huge Davanti Burger with Peroni beer. Great! Free beer!! Tried several cheeses and meats on there 3 for $19/4 for $22 special. All were very tasty.... More

We came here prior to a Blackhawks game as it was close to the United Center. We enjoyed all our dishes: veal meatballs, ravioli, and bruschetta (for 2 of us). As another reviewer mentioned, the blonde butter blondie was very tasty. A must have! Although we didn't have a lot of time for a relaxing meal, I did almost feel... More

The rustic, casual atmosphere adds to the culinary delights that Davanti has to offer. With all the Italian restaurants in Chicago, we dined here twice in a month! The brown butter blondie with maple gelato and caramel sauce is one of THE Best Desserts I've ever had! Its hard to describe, not too sweet but each bite invites you back... More

Had made a reservation for dinner, anticipating crowds because of the Chicago Marathon. We were seated in a terrible location when we asked to change tables to another free table we were told it was reserved. What?!? Within 5 minutes of ordering we got our appetizer, Bruschetta with White Bean paste (terrible) and our main course at the same time.... More
