We arrived early for our reservation, but they provided a table immediately, and the phenomenal service began from the moment that we arrived.
The combinations of tastes that the chef utilized was awesome, and the presentation was enticing.
Our server was beyond perfect in all aspects, offering tips and suggestions throughout the dinner.
The owner himself, frequented all the tables throughout the restaurant and genuinely cared about everything constantly.
Definitely a highly recommended spot and will absolutely be on the return reservation list in the very near future

Great food disappointing service
Food was delicious but service was long and disorganized. I was disappointed as great service was their claim to fame. Food was well prepared and presented.
Too many staff were involved at our table, so no continuity in what we were ordering. Also got 1 extra bottle of wine on our bill. They fixed that mistake as soon as we noticed it.
I will try one more time to change my perception of the place, as the food was really very good.

This restaurant was one of
This restaurant was one of the best dining experiences we had in Montreal. We had a group of 13 people and the food, service and ambience was perfect. Lavi, our server was especially attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wine. He really made the experience that much better. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to our clients and anyone that is looking for a space to wow your company or group. Fabulous!

We thoroughly enjoyed are dining experience at Da Vinci's. Our server took the time to explain the menu and provided excellent suggestions to my guests that were a little overwhelmed by the menu. The service was prompt and discreet.

Great Food and Service
we recently celebrated a special birthday dinner at DaVinci. Have not been there in over 10 years but their service and food is still TOPS. The maitre D was great - he was extremely helpful in the plate description and we loved every morsel of food. The various pasta dishes at our table were a real hit, along with osso bucco. Congratulations guys, you are still TOPS in my books.

Amazing experience, one of the places where I've eaten best in Montreal. A bit pricey, but definitely worth every dollars. Very good service too!

Friday Evening at DaVinci
I had a reservation on June 7th with two friends at 8:00 PM. We were greeted and seated promptly. The staff was beyond courteous and attentive to our needs for the entire meal. Our waiter, Carlo, was magnificent. The individual antipasti he recommended were pleasing to the eye and mouth-watering. Extensive wine list, we chose not to partake and the staff did not push us in any way. Bread was fresh, the breadsticks were addictive! Main courses were excellent, I had the rib eye bone-in, cooked to perfection, and we split a large bowl of tagliatelle with mushrooms/garlic/white wine that was scrupmtious. Topped the meal off with tiramisu. Can't wait until next year's Grand Prix so I can dine there again.

A memorable birthday celebration
I knew right away that I was booking this place to celebrate my 30th birthday! The food is superb, the decor and ambience is romantic. The only thing that I must comment on is the wait staff; tonight, I did not like how our table was seated next to the kitchen (we were a group of 10 and they gave us a large square table) because our view was a waiter folding napkins, loud converstation (complaining) between other waiters about how this summer is going to be hot (lol) and that the people who ate during Grand Prix weekend were suckers for paying food items that were quadrupled the price! Perhaps I am a detail-oriented person, but, overall, please visit this resto for the food and experience.

Genuine Italian experience
Amazing! It's my 3rd time there and DaVinci's doesn't disappoint! A bit expensive but worth it!
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was incredible. Italian classics done to perfection. Every bite is a pleasure. Be sure to ask for the appetizers selection plate. You'll be able to try most of their appetizers. The staff is top notch. Decor is very beautiful. Great spot downtown close to Bell Center and the nightlife. A bit pricey, but it is worth it. One tiny tiny little thing... the service was a bit too fast up until dessert. Afterwards it took a long while to get the check. But the atmosphere, the food and the staff were so nice it was a minuscule blip that was soon forgotten.

A great Italian restaurant
Came there for my wife's birth day. Warmly greeted by the part owner Vince. Nice ambiance. Service courteous, but a touch slow when we were there. Food was great, well presented, although my expectation was that it shold be sensational for the type of restaurant. Guess I'm a bit spoiled:) all desserts were excellent. Overall a great experience. Great to entertain your business partners or a special occasion.

Ti gourmand satisfait
De beaux classiques italiens exécutés à la perfection. Excellent ossobuco di vitello et son risotto et que dire des linguine fini del pescatore, tout simplement délectables. Le service est attentionné et raffiné, tout en douceur avec cette touche d'élégance italienne. Nous nous sommes régalés et avons passé une agréable soirée. Merci.

Excellent as usual
Once again, we returned to this wonderful restaurant. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. Unfortunately, I was feeling under the weather and had to leave before dessert. Despite this inconvenience on my part (not at all related to this restaurant), they treated us extremely well, doggy bagged my food and even offered to assist me by offering sparkling water and calling a cab.
Their understanding and compassion in my moment of weakness, demonstrated to me that this place is not only about their needs and making money, but it also extends to caring for their patrons well after the tab is paid.
I highly recommend Da Vinci and will definitely return. Thank you Da Vinci for your fabulous food and excellent service !!

Excellent all round
We really enjoyed our meal and the service was attentive yet unobtrusive. Will definitely recommend and return.

Remarkably Fine Dining
Perhaps one of the best Restaurant in Montreal!!! Proportions were appropriate, flavors abundant and complimentary of each other, plates garnished beautifully but the quality of the food and service was the main thrust ! Entire restaurant was not pretentious the service was attentive but not "hanging out at your table." Waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu.
Will definitely be back!!

My top 10
We went there for the first time last week end, it was our anniversary. This restaurant is now in my top 10 list in Montreal, I would even say in my top 5.
Food is amazing, service is really good, restaurant is nice too, and for once, we were able to talk, not yell !
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, amazing service
Great food, amazing service and all at a reasonable price. Without a doubt the Best Italian food I've had in Montreal. I wish all restaurants had great service like Da Vinci.

Spendy, but worth it!
Beautiful classic restaurant. Food tasted so fresh, as if we were in Italy. The service...so so. Carpaccio to start. Had the veal osso buco and it melted in my mouth.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
A real surprise!
At 930 on a Friday we were looking for something close to our hotel. Decided to take a chance and no regrets. Quie possibly the best risotto (with shrimp) I have ever had. Excellent presentation. The waiter steered us around the wine list after our first choices were unavailable. Authentic and in-house desserts capped of a great meal. Would definitely recommend and definitely go back.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Now That's Italian!
Great authentic Italian food. One of the best osso bucco dishes I have had.

Food and service at Da Vinci always raises the bar! Ask for Lavi and he will take great care of your table!

The pasta is very good and the service was awesome.we will go there again.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time at this restaurant, and it did not disapoint! Our waiter Martin was very attentive to us without being overbearing and knew his way around the menu and wine list. Althoug it is a little pricey, the great food and beautiful surroundings more than warranted it. Go there.... you will love it!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I like this place, but, wow, be ready , $$$$
Because of that, I may consider another place for business lunch.
Foods and service remain great!

Excellent meal and overall
Excellent meal and overall experience! It was a busy Saturday night for them, but we were made to feel most welcome from beginning to end. We were seated upstairs which we found to be very pleasant and less noisy than the main dining room.
Food was outstanding! Presentations great - Jumbo Stuffed Shrimp with Snow Crab entrée was worthy of a culinary magazine picture. Risotto was perfect.
Had a nice conversation with the owner after the meal. Would definitely return in the future!

Small intimate restaurant
This is a fairly small and intimate restaurant. It was clear that many of the customers are regulars. It is easy to see why based on the food and service. We started with prosciutto, reggiano and aged balsamic vinegar. Excellent with the wine they suggested from their really extensive Italian wine list. Mains were braised veal shanks and risotto. Super tender and very flavourful. They brought whole walnuts in the shell after dinner to munch on. Lots of fun and very yummy. Service was very good overall.

Da Vinci Ristorante
It was my first time going to Da Vinci Ristorante and I have to say it was great !! The service was amazing from beginning to end and the food was delicious. I ordered a seafood risotto and other than the scallops being slightly overcooked, the meal was very tasty. The food is slightly expensive but it was definitely worth it. The alcohol on the other hand was very expensive... I paid more for the alcohol than I did for the food !! Next time I know not to order more than just the main dish and a glass of wine but aside from the hefty bill (158%, for one person, tip not included) I really enjoyed my experience at Da Vinci Ristorante and I would love to go back.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food a bit expensive
Great ambiance. The waiter made very good wine suggestions. Size of dishes was perfect. Lamb was exquisite!
I definetly will return.
Prices were high, we were a big group so we were suggested fewer choices which made the experience more expensive, but food was excellent, defiinetly worth it.

Wonerful end to our Montreal Visit
Great meal and great service from Michel. The menu offered a very appealing selection as did the extensive wine list. A must return when we get back to Montreal.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
For a group of 10 our Monday evening was very relaxing. For a large group the service was impeccable. The meals were excellent as was the wine recommendations were superb. To accommodate our group staff improvised to seamlessly with various antipastos platters and deserts. All courses were excellent. Bravo gentlemen, well done.

ONe of the best Italian restaurants
I have been pretty much to all of the Montréal Italian restaurants in the downtown area. Da Vinci is often not considered because of its location (location just south of René-Lévesque) but it has one of the best italian cuisines in the downtown area.
There was a large table of women who appeared to be celebrating à la bachelorette. The staff moved our table so that the meal with not suffer due to noise.
Very attentive staff. Excellent wine list including a few reasonably priced gems from Sicily. My wife and I have tried four different choices (we have been twice) and all were excellent.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I really enjoyed our dinner because of the service. From the greeting to the suggestions on selecting wine and main courses, We were very pleased with the attention we we given. It was not intrusive and with lots of humour. Clientele that night seemed to be dominated by lots of business folks doing business. The menu is not extensive but the variety offer should meet all interests.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was very good, head waiter was very attentive and gracious. A slight mix up occurred when my main course came out with my salad, but he quickly apologized and I received a fresh main when I was ready for it.
Salad was mixed greens with gorgonzola and pear; nice blend and the cheese was very tart - a nice counter to the sweet pear.
Main course -Cavatelli with pancetta, mushrooms and pecorino - wonderful pasta was firm and the right blend of ingredients meant the pasta was balanced with the sauce.
Dessert -Tofino di ciocolato with hazelnut ice cream - very rich chocolate was nicely cut by the homemade ice cream
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Servers recommended Antipasti for our table (group of 12) - recommendations were excellent, notably the shrimp. Table was set for a group of 12 with 2 at each end which is so much better than a long skinny table - makes it easier for all to interact. Service was professional, good wines. At the end of the meal a variety of dessert drinks were brought out for everyone at no charge.

Well worth the wait!
Upon arriving in time for our reservation we were not seated for about 15 mins due to the earlier sitting taking longer than usual. The staff was very apologetic and courteous. We had a mixture of risotto' sand gnocchi which were fabulous. The wine list is truly spectacular with something for every budget.
Would definitely go again!
