For those who missed the early August opening of 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), you now have another reason to stop by: lunch.
Headed up by chef Peter DeRuvo (formerly of Sassi, Prado, and Cuoco Pazzo), Davanti Enoteca, which opened for lunch last week, offers a small selection of Italian-inspired lunch items plus a few with a creative twist.
