Oddly enough, we loved the food, but we began to think that the term "small plates," at least in this context, is an excuse for serving fairly small amounts of food at ridiculously inflated prices. And love the food we did: The pizza was quite tasty, the eggplant appetizer (not as frugal a portion) was excellent, for instance, but we... More

Unusual choices: we had ravioli and frittata, with slabs of bacon. I would have liked less oil/fat but the wait staff was very attentive and friendly. We told our waiter, Joseph, that we were in town for a wedding and the next day he saw us and inquired about the event. We were impressed that he remembered us and took... More

My husband and I recently visited Davanti Enoteca on Taylor Street for a work dinner that his company was hosting. Let me tell you that it was such a special treat! We were absolutely blown away by the food! Every single bite was UNBELIEVABLE!! If you visit Davanti, make sure that you have the eggplant, mozz, tomato, and pesto appetizer... More

Davanti's is a quaint restaurant in SW Chicago with great service. The food is tasty, but the amount served per plate is just too small. My group of seven tried and shared different plates, but were disappointed at the small portions. We were expecting bread with our order, but that is not standard. The brick oven pizza was delicious as... More

We happend to stumble into this restaurant by accident and we are so glad we did! It was great! I had the pecan french toast and my husband had the pork belly hash with two fried eggs onto with hollandaise sauce. Both dishes were awesome! The service was also great!

We came upon this restaurant for lunch as we were touring the Little Italy neighborhood. The atmosphere was great... Very pretty and upscale looking. The food was fantastic and perfect for lunch. The server was very knowledgeable about the food and was helpful in making choices. I would definitely go back if I am in Chicago again!

We love the small plate/sharing and it's especially fun when you have a group of 4 or more. The wait staff are extremely helpful and courteous and you are eating in an authentic Italian neighborhood just 10 minutes from downtown Chicago. Walk a couple blocks east after dinner and go to Mario's Italian Ice for the best dessert on earth.
