Davanti Enoteca: Pizza For Breakfast

This restaurant recently opened. I got there at 11 AM because I heard the lines have been very long. Lucky for me, there was no line this morning so I got VIP treatment… I got to sit in the window and watch the rest of Little Italy go by. Enchanting!

Davanti is a Purple Pig with Italian accents. Scott (Mia Francesca) Harris is a principal in both and he totally shows his personal style in the menu.

I saw a photo of this pizza in the Chicago Red Eye. Mind you, the photo was pretty blurry but still enticed me to go all the way down to Little Italy to try it.

The chef was particularly pleased that he created my pizza in the mirror image of the one he made for the Red Eye.

This pizza… TO DIE FOR! … and I don’t use that phrase very often.

The Pizza Della Fattoria is a farmed egg+pork belly+potato+scallions+asiago+bechame and was one of the best pizza’s I’ve had anywhere.

If you are looking for a great place for a weekend brunch …not to mention the great service…this is the place to go.

Davanti Enoteca is located at 1359 West Taylor in Little Italy.

Bon Appetit!
