Great restaurant!This was my first time eating at da Vinci's restaurant.
The food was excellent. I had the Indian Italian ravioli. It was a great fusion idea.
My mother had the lamb with sweet potato and rabe.
She loved it, but the rabe was a little bitter for her.
Our salads with the pears and candied pecans were excellent.
And the Tiramasu was awesome. It was layered and very light,
(And on the house!)
The service was very attentive and personable.
Excellent idea to have menus that light up so you can read them
The decor was very nice and classy. High ceilings keep noise down.
Will definitely be back.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Keeper!DaVinci is a bit out of the way, i.e. no other restaurants nearby, but it has been around for a while, and for good reason. Lovely space, gracious service, Chef Peppino comes by each table to chat, and his food is wonderful! We shared a tasty yellow beet salad - mmmmmm, then each ordered an entree. The Chef sent out a substantial portion of gnocchi bolognese for each of us. So good that we ate most of it, then had to take home part of the very substantial entrees! Go, you will NOT be disappointed!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMaccaulades to the chef !Your food and choices on the menu are devine. Our waitress could not be kinder, or more helpful when selecting a wine. She realized we were there to celebrate 2 special graduations and she went out of her way to tell the chef. He sent over a lovely appetizer and a champagne toast!!!! Our graduates were made to feel special, welcome to celebrate and loved every morsel of food. Really we had a lovely, delicious, meal and would recommend it in a second. Lamb presented beautifully and tasted wonderful cooked to perfection. The choc. souffle was so delicious, molten inside, with home made gelato = superb!!! Tiramisu to die for.... I noticed you have an additional place in Sudbury, MA. Curious to try it too.Thank you for a wonderful celebration.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for eightWe have eaten here many times. The food is very good and the prices relatively reasonable for this area. With a larger table, the service was not quite as attentive but there were three or four large parties there that night and we were all engaged in conversation so the waiter may have been holding back on purpose. Two small quibbles. The wine was placed on the table without any opportunity to taste it. Also, the bar had no bitters, which was quite odd. The bartender seemed proud of this fact, much to the irritation of our guests from NYC. Everyone liked their food. We will be back.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food!The scollop appitizer was wonderful! (Wish there were more than just two jumbo scollops though.) The mussels were fantastic!! Excellent flavor sauce with them! I had the roasted rack of lamb with a pesto sauce - WOW! Melted in my mouth! My husband tried the Veal chop - again, such amazing flavors!!! The waiter, Daniel, was very attentive to us. It came up in conversation that we were at the restaurant celebrating my birthday, and when the Pears Crustini dessert (which again was just wonderful!) arrived, Daniel had them write "Happy Birthday" in CHOCOLATE on the plate! And ingeniously had one candle inside of a sliced strawberry!! I was so overwhelmed by their thoughtfulness and attentiveness! We will definately go to Da Vinci again!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food, outstandingFabulous food, outstanding menu. A great place to take friends or out-of-towners to make a good impression. Did I mention the expresso martini (made to order), the cosmo and the wonderful bottle of wine? A great night, as always.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and professionalMy company had an consultant in town for a workshop, and Da Vinci's fit the bill for an upscale but relaxed place to bring her for dinner. The menu was creative and varied, with good choices for the different tastes in our small group.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGet the burrataI loved the burrata. It is made in house. The rigatoni was fine at best and I liked the parpadelle. Soufflé was delicious and had it been a date night would have been perfect. They have fabulous service.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great experience. StaffHad a great experience. Staff is welcoming and efficient. Great for pre-theatre dinning!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was wonderfulThe service was wonderful and they made the night feel very special for a surprise birthday party! I will absolutely go again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDaVinci is currently my favoriteDaVinci is currently my favorite Italian restaurant. Compared to Davios and Erbaluce which are within a block of DaVinci and also Italian, I'd say the service and food at DaVinci was superior. And that is a lot of praise for anyone who has been to those other restaurants recently.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMwent there after the theatre.went there after the theatre. Have eaten at Davinci previously. Food is amazing. Somewhat pricey but given service, quality of food it is worth it. Everyone in my party of 4 had incredible food. Rigatoni Bolognese is possibly the best in the city and maybe best I have ever had (other than when I had it a the top restaurant in Bologna Italy). There was a swordfish special that was unbelievable as well.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPrior to booking our reservationPrior to booking our reservation through Open Table, I was excited about the menu, but was a little taken back at the prices on the menu once we arrived at DaVinci...prices weren't listed online...regardless the meal and fresh pasta was fantastic.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and friendly,Very good food and friendly, professional staff. Our server Katie was excellent, knew the menu and the specials. the Chef came over and spent several minutes talking with us. Beef Tenderloin was fantastic (regular menu) and Black Sea Bass (special) was great too. Portion sizes were perfect. It is a little noisy, some of the noise came from a couple watching a basketball game at the bar and cheering rather loudly. fortunately the game ended about 15 minutes after we were seated. Other than that...great overall experience. I would recommend Da Vinci!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressed by Da VinciExcellent experience. Scallop appetizer was perfect. I had the rack of lamb which was perfectly cooked it was delicious from the sauce to the vegetables. Everyone was very pleased with the food. Especially the deserts. The service was impeccable as well. I would definitely recommend Da Vinci.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a great meal, the chefIt was a great meal, the chef was so gracious and the entire waitstaff made us feel so special.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and ServiceExcellent food and Service will recommend to everyone3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTHe music was a little tooTHe music was a little too loud.

The staff was very helpful and made our dining experience for the first time at Da Vinci very memorable.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party of 4 ordered a 5Our party of 4 ordered a 5 course tasting menu, so we got to try a lot of different plates. The Chef suggested items for our meal, and was happy to accomodate a vegetarian. For starters, a burrata with tomato, a small green salad and cheesy arancini were all excellent. Next, the Masala raviolis were an inventive Indian/Italian fusion, bursting with flavor, and the gnocchi con funghi were soft and comforting, rich and truffly. Main courses of haddock and melt in your mouth beef tenderloin were also top notch, as was a molton chocolate cake dessert with vanilla ice cream. There were no flaws, and no shortcomings in our meal. A personal visit from the chef was a special treat. I will return (for those gnocchi) sooner rather than later.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Although the dining room was very crowded (tables are very close together). The noise level did not appear to be overly loud but due to acoustics of the room, hearing my dining companions was very difficult.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMasala Ravioli Rocks!This was our first time to Da Vinci and the food was excellent. We had the masala ravioli and the haddock on a pea potato biscuit, very unique and very tasty! Kim was our server and was very friendly and helpful. The rest of the wait staff also exhibited excellent service and responsiveness. Wonderful experience overall.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWill go again and againWe visited during restaurant week and between the four of us had just about everything on the menu.

I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an outstanding dining experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI was visiting Boston, stayingI was visiting Boston, staying in a hotel in the area and there are very few good, vegetarian friendly restaurants in the area. My son and I both had excellent vegetarian dishes at Da Vinci.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food here was amazingThe food here was amazing from the appetizers to the desserts our entire party was extremely happy! We went during restaurant week and at the top of the menu it said ask your server about gluten free options. Our server did not seem at all knowledgeable. He had to go ask the chef multiple times what items can be made gluten free and made it seem like an inconvenience. This was quite disappointing.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly staff and delicious foodWent to Da Vinci during restaurant week and it was delicious. The service was prompt and friendly and everything about the food (presentation, portion size and taste) was perfect. Will definitely go back to check out more items from the regular menu.

The menu was excellent and the arancini was by far the best I've ever had. The service was a little iffy - it took forever to get our drinks refilled, which was annoying, but not a deal breaker because we were enjoying a delicious meal together on a Friday evening. Can't complain!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionEverything about the place was perfect including the food3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for restaurant week.Went for restaurant week.
