  • "Nothing bad to say, food, service, wine list can not ask for better !"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Went to Da Vinci once before many years ago and always wanted to go back. I was happy to find a coupon that made us half-price! Even though I think the restaurant a bit pricey, it is perfect for an anniversary! Great food, and for a friday night, it was not packed at all ( which I prefer!) Had a nice evening with my bf."

  • "Always a nice treat when in Montreal. Good service and good food. A little pricey for some people but worth it in my opinion."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "A great restaurant just a block from St Catherine Street in Downtown. They offer a wonderful menu, ample wine list and service that is always there but never obtrusive. Moderately pricey but worth every bit what you pay. There are several good Italian eateries in Montreal and I have sampled many. This is one of the best."

  • "The restaurant is lovely and the staff very helpful. The menu is varied in content and price. What a wine list! The only down side was a noisy table party of 2 couples, who insisted on sharing personal medical details about their pregnancy and other ailments with everyone. there is a limit with what staff can do to manage paying customers.... Beautiful decor as well."

  • "Food was great but a little expensive. Service was fine. Need to work on certain details. Ambiance is missing and a little noisy. Maybe for groups of 6 or more they should have the upstairs open."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Very good restaurant. Food and service are excellent. I would certainly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "One of my favorite restaurant. Valet parking ( $ 15 ), so no problem to park. We had reservation for Valentines. For that occasion they had singers, and our table was too close from them, so was very noisy, tables were also very close to each other. But it is like that in any restaurant for that occasion. They had a fix menu, I don t like that too much, but again, that night it the same thing everywhere. But even taht nignt service was impeccable, food was really good, nothing to complain."

  • "Chosen for St. Valentine's, Da Vinci did the job both gastronomically and romantically.The special menu was interesting - seafood gnochi followed by sea bass and ending with creme brulee with canolli. We eschewed the impresssive, extravagant and almost exclusively Italian wine list in favour of $14 glasses of adequate Chardonnay. The atmosphere was fine after we moved upstairs and away from the loud and live entertainment. It would probably be quieter and more romantic on a regular dining evening. While most restaurants charge higher prices on such special occasions as St. valentine's, Da Vinci might better be reserved for a special occasion, though, since the cost of the meal would have kept Leonardo well fed for a year."

  • "Very good lunch. Great service. Fish of the day was great. Burrata was great, too."

  • "My overall experience was great however the food was cold and this removed some of the pleasant experience I hoped for when eating Lamb or Veal."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "I found the restaurant on Open table, we enjoyed the evening. Food and service were very good, just the right serving size. I would only go there for special occasion, as the price is on the high side."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We went to Da Vinci before a show, so we were early (6:00pm). Food was excellent, service a bit disorganized, but over all, a very good experience."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "This was our second visit to Da Vinci's. It was busier this time, so we didn't get the same level of service as last time - but it was still very good. The Prosciutto and Mozzarella Bufala appetizers were incredible. The Tagiatelle ai Fungihi and Ossobuco di Vitello were fantastic. Service was prompt and courteous. The atmosphere was friendly and noise levels were moderate. We sat on the main floor by the fireplace - it was very nice. I would recommend Da Vinci's for a romantic night out with your S. O."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Although the food was good, the salad had a boring presentation, with basically a whole bunch of arugala hiding a very small amount to cheese and fresh pear. Likewise for the lamb, the few accompanying vegetables were tasty but over cooked. The pasta was ordinary. For the price, very ordinary food. A little disappointed."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "DaVinci restaurant met and exceeded all our expectations. Our group of 10 (business dinner) was well accustomed to top level restaurants as we all travel extensively and have the opportunity to enjoy the best foods around the globe. This restaurant knows how to cater to such tastes (and we are not easy to please!). From the beautifully prepared starters (chefs choice, we just said: “surprise us”) to perfect appetizer risotto infused with black truffle oil an topped with some too, to exquisite main course dishes and light delicious deserts- and finally very attentive, professional service---all was nearly perfect. Highly recommended!!"

  • "One of the best meals of the year, after dining in NY, Boston, Dublin, Chamonix, London and Amsterdam...Great service and ambiance....and we had a great family time...even though one of us was Vegan, there was no problem, no hesitation, and they prepared a perfect dish, full of flavor and protein."

  • "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!"

  • "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!!"
    Dined on 7/23/2013
  • "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."

  • "This was our first time at the restaurant. We took my daughter there for her 22 birthday. Service was wonderful our waiter was very knowledgable about the menu. The food was outstanding. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 10/10/2013
  • "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."
