If you missed Lauren Saria's post Monday, Chef Peter DeRuvo Shares What's in Store at Davanti Enoteca, give it a read and ogle the photos.
Both should help in providing some context before delving into the menu for Scottsdale's Davanti Enoteca, the newest home (and third location) of the Italian restaurant from Chicago-based Francesca's Restaurants Group (which also brought Mia Francesca to the Valley). Davanti Enoteca is scheduled to open on Saturday, August 4.
There's even a handy glossary.
Note: In addition to the food, Davanti Enoteca will feature a wine list offering 30 wines by the glass, 30 whites by the bottle, and 48 red selections with a heavy Old World Italian influence as well as classic Italian cocktails.
