    The octopus was made to perfection, tender and tasty, the rack of lamb was excellent, the scallops second to none,and the deserts rounded everything with excellence. This got topped with a nice bottle of Barolo.... irresistible!

    Appetizer was ample and very tasty, spinach salad with chicken was not well prepared or to my tastes. Price was high for lunch. Dishes could have been combined and price lowered. I will return, last visit was months ago and evening meal special with fish and pasta was excellent.

    I had the Mushroom Napoleon - the mushrooms were wonderful, also enjoyed the greens, however, whatever it was that the mushrooms were stacked on, was less appealing. The veal rollatini was perfect - loved every aspect of it. I am absolutely thrilled to find this restaurant as Carlos'cooking at Coal Fire was always my favorite of all the Greenville chefs and I missed it very much. I had heard he would be opening a new restaurant "probably on Woodruff Rd" but hadn't found it - so glad I have now!

    We chose this restaurant based on other reviews that seemed to be amazing. We also love Italian--real Italian. Our occasion was a 53rd wedding anniversary and completion of radiation therapy. Two things to celebrate. This place is an awesome place to celebrate. The atmosphere allowed for a quiet intimacy that was welcome. The food is superb, the service is excellent. I had an octopus salad which was a little bit dissapointing, but the lamb entree was excellent. My wife raved about the filet and the gespacho. The desserts are worth the whole visit. In fact go ahead and go there just for dessert and coffee or the excellent bar. We will return to this place again. I know others we have told about it will go as well.

    We were very disappointed with the food. My caprese appetizer was very bland. It lacked balsamic & basil flavoring. For entree I had veal rollotino. It was not cooked correctly All I could taste was olive oil and the meat was tough. They should take this dish off the menu. My husband had a bean soup that was just ordinary, nothing wrong with it but not spectacular either. We had better tasting food at a much less expensive Olive Garden.

    Our party of four arrived on time for our reservation, but the "table was not quite ready." The soft egg yolk ravioli appetizer was amazing, but the baked goat cheese was just OK. The entrees were all on the heavy side. Osso Bucco was cooked wonderfully, but so overseasoned (very salty) as to not be able to taste the meat. The snapper was similar; first taste great, but then the seasoning overwhelmed the dish. Veal Rollotini were very rich, almost heavy and I don't know why they were served on top of slices of raw tomatoes. Veal Kristi was tasty. The desserts were just OK, no stars. Service was fine, not outstanding. Overall, I can't agree with all the rave reviews. Maybe I just like my food prepared with a little more finesse.

    We loved it all, so delicious!!! We started with the pasta fagoli soup and the caprese. The soup was piping hot and quite tasty with the procuitto and beans. The caprese has a nice touch with a honey drizzle. My husband got the Rack of lamb special, and I, the SeaBass. Both Devine, we are still arguing over which one was better. The service was professional but friendly. We cannot wait to return. What a perfect evening.

    Not crowded @5:30 pm on Wednesday (7/22). Nice ambience. The octopus appetizer special was so so as the 4 octopus tantacles were tasteless without the balsamic viinaigrette dressing - the presentation was pretty though (on a bed of mixed greens, thinly sliced tomato and avocado). The Caribbean lobster and shrimp were delicious, so was the veal kristi. The 2 shrimps were excellent - crunchy, not the overcooked shrimps I had for lunch (Shrimp Riviera) last week. Wonder if they were the same "Ecuadorian shrimp" and that the chef just overcooked them when I had them for lunch. Service was good. Definitely worth return visits.

    The hardest part of dining here is trying to make decisions. The food is so good that you want EVERYTHING. Luckily we had a fantasuc server, Michelle, to coach us along and ultimately split several dishes for us which allowed us to have more variety. What could've been a simple unremarkable dinner, instantly became a multi course dining experience. Great food. Great service.

    My husband and I had a great dinner here. Everything we ordered was excellent. I ordered the pescatora da Vinci . It had more seafood than any other restaurant. Sometimes, restaurants fill it up with mussels and clams. Not here- there was a whole lobster tail, a full portion of salmon, plus scallops, calamari, etc. Delicious! The service was also excellent- attentive, but not in your face. Yes, it is in a strip mall, but once you are inside, you will forget. I didn't give five stars, because I save that for The French Laundry, Le Bernadin, and places like that, but we will definitely be back here when we are in town.

    The restaurant wasn't busy @11:30 am. We had the Penne “Da Vinci” and Shrimp “Riviera”, both delicious. The penne dish came out piping hot, the 3 Ecuadorian shrimps were jumbo size but not as crunchy as I thought they would be, perhaps they were a little overcooked. Plenty of bread to mop up the sauce. Service was good. Definitely will return.

    Da Vinci's is one of my favorite restaurants in Greenville but last Thursday the food was so disappointing I thought I was in a different restaurant. The pappardelle sangiovese, usually rich and full of flavor, was ordinary and dull, like leftovers reheated for the fourth time. My two friends, who both ordered the salmon al noce, said it was just ok and not very flavorful. Was the chef away this night? I am hoping this was an off night and the restaurant maintains its high standard of flavorful food.

    Da Vinci's is literally the best around. Not only is it the best restaurant in Greenville, it's the best in the entire SE in my opinion. My husband and I are foodies and I travel a lot with my job.. So I've been to my fair share of restaurants. This is the place we always pick when we want a date night. Not only is the food outstanding, the staff is friendly and helpful. They always remember us and treat us like we are regulars. I would also highly encourage others to always order off the specials menu. Carlos produces magic in the kitchen. You'll never be disappointed.

    I had the Chicken Valdostano and the presentation was outstanding, the meal had a burst of flavor, everything was Excellent... Chef Carlos has a menu loaded with authentic Italian dishes and has created a menu that provides an Italian style of dining. He doesn't limit your options though as there are traditional contemporary bistro dishes and a handful of specials daily, too.

    As we were married in Italy, we try to have Italian to celebrate our anniversary. In GVL many places claim to be Italian, but nearly all are American-Italalian, not authentically Italian. This is not the case at Da Vinci's. Chef Carlos has a menu loaded with authentic Italian dishes and has created a menu that provides an italian style of dining. He doesn't limit your options though as there are traditional contemporary bistro dishes and a handful of specials daily, too. To compliment the food, the GM, Kristi, has an excellent FOH staff, well trained and attentive. Kerry waited on us and provided better service than one could expect, very professional while also making it comfortable. Wine list accommodates all from wino to oenophile
