Seriously, the brussel sprouts appetizer is so amazing...I can't even think of a good enough word. We've had it before...and instead of trying someplace new...we came back. The wait staff is very friendly and we were seated outside for a beautiful afternoon of sunshine in Little Italy. Very nice place.

Our waiter, Chad took excellent care of us and the food was superb. Couldn't recommend it more. We had an excellent red wine, an excellent pasta dish and a meat and cheese board that knocked our socks off.

Went to eat here after the Veterans Day Parade. My meal of octopus was excellent as was the beer i had. My wife order ravoli with a raw egg in it. She was not too crazy about it. There was only "ONE' ravoli and the dough was hard. She probably should have sent it back. My future daughter-in-law order the... More

Dinner here was ok. The staff were friendly but not super attentive. The food was ok, I thought it was a fair attempt at Italian food but my Italian other half was not impressed and neither of us would want to eat here again.

Sit out on the patio on Sunday morning! Gorgeous! The food is amazing, and if you like bloody mary's...try the make your own bloody mary bar! They have everything under the sun available to put on it. They bring you a mason jar with ice and vodka - you do the rest. Great start to the day.

For my husband, an Italian restaurant is only as good as it's spaghetti and meatballs. He choose the sausage spaghetti with added meatballs and pronounced it as good as his Moms. A bit pricey(at 17 dollars for all his add-ons) and at first the portion looked small, but it was quite filling. No bread was offered but when we inquired,... More

If you are looking for creative, well prepared dishes served in a pleasant open air setting (in-door dining also available), Davanti Enoteca is an excellent choice. We were pleasantly surprised the the mall location--in Del Mar Highlands Town Center--offered pleasant covered outdoor dining with live music music on weekends. The eclectic menu offerings including small plates, pizza, steak and fish... More

Ah, such a treat in Little Italy while on business! Cool weather but nice heated outdoor seating to people watch and enjoy a great Risotto and a glass of wine. Great service to go with a great meal!
