Be transported to the Italian countryside. From the moment you enter Davanti Enoteca in Naperville, guests enjoy an authentic atmosphere that provides an exceptional dining experience. This lively wine bar and restaurant offers shareable, contemporary twists on rustic Italian cuisine so patrons experience the different regions of Italy with rotating offerings of the finest cuisine with an extensive wine selection.

As part of Scott Harris Hospitality, Davanti Enoteca is a member of an iconic group of eateries and bars that has grown from its humble beginnings at Mia Francesca in downtown Chicago to a beloved collection of trattorias, taquerias, and wine bars that can be found all over Chicagoland. Every location, including Davanti Enoteca, operates on the same fundamental principles: simplicity, hospitality, and quality.

More than just good, simple cooking, Davanti Enoteca creates a memorable experience for all guests. Unique tableside presentations are exclusively available at this location, including the creamy mascarpone polenta, ragu, and a whole roasted eggplant.

The award-winning and crowd favorite Davanti Burger includes bacon jam, roasted tomatoes, cheese curd, arugula, roasted garlic aioli, and hand-cut parmesan porcini fries. The signature burger is just one example of the fresh, modernized take on classic offerings that customers enjoy from the menu.

A destination for rustic Italian cuisines, the Davanti Enoteca wine selection complements the menu. The list expands worldwide, consisting of 110 different wines with unique features every month. The friendly and knowledgeable staff guides patrons through the different styles of wines to accommodate many different taste profiles.

Conversing with customers to create a very Italian feel during their experience, the staff provides recommendations and preparations not found anywhere else. Although ordering one of the six signature focaccias is a must, despite your selection from the menu, Davanti Enoteca’s objective remains the same – to create a memorable dining experience for their guests. ■
