Our favorite Little Italy restaurant in the neighborhood

While at the fest on Taylor Street, we had the choice of all of the regulare restaurants the people go to. My wife and I decided to try Davanti Enoteca over our normal ones, The menu is easy to choose from since it was not massive. What we did not know, our waitress explained the ingredients and preparation. The pricing first had me wondering if this was going to be a restaurant I would return to. My wife ordered a pasta dish that had a cheese sauce and cracked pepper. I ordered the white fish that was prepared with roasted grapefruit and green olives. I wish I could remember the exact names of these dishes. When our meals arrived we thought how small, then we ate them. OMG! I tried my wife's and I wished I had it. The white fish was fresh and the flavors and textures of my meal had me wanting more. When we were finished, the waitress ask if we would to see the dessert menu and I had to just to compare to the entree menu. I ordered a peach breadpudding with blueberries and italian vanilla ice cream. While waiting, the waitress brought us a chocolate mousse dessert that was on a thick wafer base and topped with coco powder. My wife does not do desserts...until this hit the table. She ate half of it. When the breadpudding arrived, it was fresh, warm and GOOD.
The conversation going home was all about the fantastic meal. We are not planning the date to return.

Features: Davanti Enoteca University Village might just be the best Italian restaurant in Chicago.  With refurbished wood interiors that make for a very homey ambiance, the setting is ideal for families, friends, and couples to enjoy shareable dishes.   

Why We Dine: Davanti Enoteca University Village serves up love-inducing Italian cuisine.  You'll love your server, the wine, the entrees you sample, and even the bill.

  • Shareable dishes: From small plate starters to larger Italian shareables like pasta, pizzas, and entrees, you and yours will get to enjoy flavors across the entire menu.
  • Reasonable wine prices: Davanti Enoteca Italian Restaurant sells wine by the glass, carafe (1 1/2 glass), and bottle.  The bottle pricing is your best bet for a deal- you get to pay retail price, and the corkage fee is only $7.
  • D├ęcor: Exposed brick arches on the two back walls and the rustic bar made of refurbished wood create the warm look that guests love.

Inside Knowledge: Davanti Enoteca University Village does not take reservations.  Arrive early for dinner to increase your chances of getting seated immediately. 

We Recommend:

  • Ricotta + honey comb: This smooth treat comes served in a mini mason jar, accompanied with crisp Tuscan toast.
  • Truffle egg toast + fontina + asparagus: The subtle flavor of truffle oil mingles with the egg, bread, and fontina to create a flavorful appetizer.  Asparagus on the side adds snappiness to the other ingredients.
