We were late diners (3) on a Friday but nothing was too much trouble and the food was great. Would visit again.

We visited on a Saturday night and the atmosphere was good - busy but friendly. Despite being busy, the service was excellent and we were never kept waiting. The food was very reasonably priced and delicious. I had the king prawns with white wine, lemon and garlic to start and my partner had scallops with black pudding off the specials... More

Second time here when away for a weekend. Still had a special offer on a friday. I had the pasta & garlic bread from the offer & my husband had the pate & calzone. All were excellent. The staff were excellent also. The only down side we went early doors & it was noisey with kids.

Went as a couple mid week just after 7 pm. Offered choice of places to sit. Mid week option for two at £20 is very good value, with a range of options for starters and mains and a free drink (wine or soft drink) each included. Bread provided whilst we waited for the starter (but we did not wait long).... More

I think this is either the second or third time that we've been here but each time we come, the service is impeccable, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is very relaxed. We were here for a birthday meal and the staff were just wonderful even though we had a large group. Thanks very much, will definitely see you... More

My husband and I have been to Whitley bay twice in the last two years for a short weekend break and both times we've eaten at davanti. The meal is always good but the staff are really great, very helpful and friendly making for a relaxed evening meal. We'l definitely eat there again.
