After a dinner at a neighboring restaurant we walked toquickly, in the chilling rai, to Devanti Enoteca for dessert. We ordered Cappucino,Hot tea and Irish coffee to warm the insides. Service was excellent and the pieces of cheese cake we shared were magnificent. A wonderful way to complete the evening of dining in Little Italy

Ah my fav place to visit- never been disappointed! I usually frequent their Del Mar Highlands location but this one was just as reliable. We tried the honeycomb focaccia to start with ...extremely interesting and though I was pretty unsure about starting off with a 'sweetish' appetizer, we all polished off every last bit! Also tried a favorite - the... More

I loved everything about this place. It's a dimly lit quaint restaurant; brick and wood surroundings make it reminiscent of cottages of Italy. I was instantly transported. They have a small but lively bar area. Gotta love the boisterous bar tenders that almost steal the show for the restaurant. They definitely made me feel at home. We waited maybe 25... More

We think we hit this spot on an off night for service...our server was friendly and seemed to be trying but took probably 15 minutes to even be offered a drink and every step of the process took far too long. The 5 year old with us who ordered noodles with butter got her food about 15 minutes later than... More

Dropped in for New Year's Day lunch. Had Garganelli del piscatore and pappardelle Di maiale. Beautiful. Great atmosphere. Get a seat on the verandah and people watch with a glass of wine. Nice.

First, people should understand that this restaurant is a different concept from other places in Little Italy with big plates of pasta for one person. Enoteca is Italian for wine bar which means the concept is small plates for sharing with friends over a delicious glass of wine or a well made cocktail. If you are looking for a large... More

Try the spinach ravioli it is good but rich! It is served in a bowl of browned butter and is oh so delicious. The mushroom risotto was pretty amazing as well.
