Searching for a place with octopus, I happened upon Davanti. Served atop fingerling potatoes, sausage bits and other ingredients I can't remember, it was heavenly! They have sidewalk, indoor and back deck seating. Lovely, Italian music playing. Every member of the staff was pleasant and courteous. I got there early, but the people flowed in, nonstop, just after. The prices... More

Davanti is in the center of Little Italy on restaurant row. The interior is spacious showcasing attractive, traditional wood furnishings. I started out with the Manager recommended Focaccia Di Recco(flat bread filled with soft cheese) with a honeycomb on top to spread on the bread. In one word: PHENOMENAL! One of the best bread starters I ever tasted. My Antipasto... More

Arrived in San Diego a day before our cruise. Was walking down India Street in little Italy which has tons of restaurants. We chose Davanti Enoteca. We were not disappointed by our choice. The only regret is that I did not see the lovely little court yard until we were leaving. It would have been a pleasant place to have... More

Meat and cheese board is a must for an app. The bruschetta was also delicious. Sit on the back patio if available. Beautiful location to relax and hang out while enjoying the good wine and food. Server was very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable

The food here was very good, but the atmosphere was the best. I've had more authentic Italian food, but this place was very pleasant and the service was excellent

Davanti has a dish to die for: the linguine with cracked pepper and pecorino cheese. I drive down from LA to eat it, it's that good.

A group of us had just landed, hungry and wanting a nice relaxing lunch. The vote was for a Little Italy and saw the great reviews for Davanti. Most of us are all from northern climates so lunch out on the patio was outstanding in the 70 degree weather. We had the famous marscapone focaccia...Excellent! Two pizzas, one of the... More

We got off the bus in Little Italy. Had a great light lunch of pizza and sandwiches. Margaritas were not the best but wines were good. Nice patio with heaters kept us comfortable. The servers were very friendly.
