Da Vinci Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
The Da Vinci Ristorante was incredibly busy. Tons of locals and tourists enjoying great Italian food. We arrived on time and were seated immediately. I wasn’t really into the two seat small dining table where one person faces a wall, but that’s what we received. The appetizers we ordered were the best part of the night - octopus salad appetizer was extremely fresh and flavorful, enough for an entree. The eggplant and ricotta app also tasted like someone really cared about what they were sending out from the kitchen. We ordered a nice bottle of wine, Duckhorn Cabarnet, to go with the night’s meal and were kind of disappointed- my fault I should have ordered something else like a Super Tuscan. Our entree was a pizza. Our night was centered around getting a wood fired pizza. The pizza was cooked with care, bubbles and char in the crust, but the dough was flavorless-not a sour dough as expected. As a quality control issue I would not serve it on a non-perforated dish because it turns the pizza soggy. No one wants a mushy pizza. I realize that certain toppings can “water down” the top, but that should be accounted for in the prep when ordering a pizza off the menu. The desserts we ordered were the chocolate gelato and an insanely rich chocolate/nutella ganache. The two were great together. Thanks for a great night.
Great meal! In order, we had some nice warm and delicious Italian bread and focaccia served (almost immediately!). The house salad was fine - nothing special, honestly, just some greens with a nice balsamic vinegar type dressing - but the day’s soup special (Italian wedding soup), with some extra Parmesan, was yummy! The pasta carbonara was great, although it would’ve been even better with just a bit less salt. The veal saltimboca was also very good, although if you had the carbonara first it tasted under salted! And it all ended with a delicious profiterole, finally served with a proper amount of nice creamy ice cream!!
Best meal we have had on Marco Island so far (5 days in)!
Wonderful dinner & service. The sea bass I had was prepared exquisitely & the lamb my spouse had was fabulous. Since it was Valentine’s Day, the restaurant was crowded & noisy. But we sat very close to the bar & the kitchen area so I’m sure that was part of the noise level.
Second time here. Heard great things about it but had a mediocre experience the first time , so thought we would give it a second try. Have had great experiences at the other groups restaurants, but not here. Party of 2, showed up for reservation 5 minutes early but didn’t get seated for 30 minutes. Probably would still be there if I didn’t start camping out at the hostess stand. Waiter was average at best, and could be better trained around a wine list. Food while reasonably priced was average and served on the cool side. Experience was nothing like the next night at Marco Prime , their sister restaurant. Will return to the other groups restaurants, but done with this one.
This was our first time to DaVinci's and it did not disappoint. I had the Chicken Parmesan and my wife had the Tortellaci Di Carne. Both were excellent and there was enough in each entree that we brought half home. I had also upgraded to the Caesar Salad, it was the only disappointment in the meal. (House salad looked better and was included) Service was excellent (thank you Bret); we highly recommend this restaurant.

We had just arrived on Marco Island and had not visited a grocery store. The only Open Table restaurant near us that had a 6:30 time slot available was Da Vinci's. Sometimes that is not a good thing, but we booked it. We arrived and were seated immediately even though the very large restaurant was packed. Water and rolls showed up within a minute and the waitress was there shortly thereafter.
My wife ordered the sea bass special and I had the baby osso bucco special and both were excellent. The side vegetables were cooked perfectly. The restaurant has a decent wine list and an extensive menu. There is a large variety of homemade pasta dishes and a fairly large outdoor dining area. All in all, a very pleasant way to start our stay on Marco.
Wonderful family dinner! Our family of 5 has a little guy with food allergies, and the restaurant could not have been more accommodating. One of our five-year olds even admitted the "psghetti and meatballs is better than Mommy's!" Wonderful evening, delicious dinner, and fabulous service. Thanks to Ana for a great night!
We often come for the happy hour and enjoy the excellent food, service and value. This was our first time for a full meal. Everything met our expectations. Food was deliciouws and Kevin, our server, was attentive and efficient. DaVinci's is our favorite restaurant on Marco Island.
The food was very good and the menu had something for everyone. The price was reasonable and the service was outstanding. Our server, Vanessa was excellent. I must admit, though that the parking was terrible. There were a lot of parking spaces but just too many cars.
Exellent food and service. We were there for an early (5pm) dinner and had our choice of an outside table. We had an appetizer, salad, entrée, dessert and coffee. Everything was delicious. Our server Jennifer was the best. She made the evening even better. A bit pricy but worth it.
