Davanti Enoteca is a welcome break from the ubiquitous "red sauce" fare offered by (too) many Italian restaurants. Still under a year old, Davanti is located in the former Quilted Bear space on Scottsdale Rd. & Lincoln Ave.
In November, Arizona Republic restaurant critic Howard Seftel awarded Davanti four stars. Said Seftel, "Davanti’s extensive, ingredient-driven menu requires a knowledgeable staff, and this group can reel off the particulars of each dish as if they made it themselves. And they effectively handle the constant dish-clearing and cutlery replacement that a grazing meal requires."
