Davanti Food & Market – Review

This quaint little Italian restaurant in the middle of the famous “Barrio Chueca” of Madrid offers excellent homemade pasta and Italian classics. It is rather small so be sure you make reservations.

The restaurant space also includes a grocery shop where you will be able to find the products used for their dishes. This can be a very interesting option if you stay at an apartment in Madrid in the Chueca area.  You can also find ideas to enjoy the food markets in Madrid in this post. There is one in Chueca, very close to Davanti Food & market.

Overall review

If you want to enjoy Italian food in Chueca Davanti is for sure one of the best options available.

We love its bright decoration, with lots of small details that make Davanti Food a charming place where you will feel at ease. Some of the decoration elements will take us directly to the Italian coast.

Among its menu options, the fresh artisan pasta stands out. There are also some delicious and traditional meat dishes that follow the original recipes of the Mediterranean country.

We also love the idea that you can purchase at the market area and enjoy at yours some of the recipes of the restaurant!

In case you do not feel like eating italian we include here a link to our section with hand-picked recommended restaurants in Chueca district.

Despite Madrid is a melting pot of Spanish cultures, and that you will be able to find restaurants that specialize in gastronomy from all regions of Spain, there are some dishes which are typical “Madrileños”.
Cocido madrileño is Madrid´s best-known dishes. A chickpea stew served in many different formats, this is a great option to enjoy in winter, especially at some of the restaurants that specialize in cocido. Bocadillo de calamares is a cheap way to enjoy a simple lunch or dinner. A very simple dish can be delicious if all ingredients (squid,oil and bread) are of excellent quality. Callos a la madrileña: this is a beef tripe stew and many traditional restaurants are proud to serve “the best callos in Madrid”
