Holiday parties are in full swing, but hosting these fun events can be extremely challenging. As a host, knowing what to prepare and what will please the guests is one of the most challenging parts of holiday party planning.

Davanti Enoteca, in Chicago's Little Italy, has created an entire menu of shareable plates that are perfect for the holiday season. From cheese and meats to pastas and desserts, Davanti has been entertaining hungry diners since day one.

"The concept of the menu is structured so that people can enjoy a little bit of everything," said Davanti's Chef Jon Beatty. "Our menu items are rooted in rustic Italian but we feature new twists and creative ingredients that add something different. It lends itself perfectly to entertaining large groups of people, that way everyone can get a sample of each."
