DaVinci’s is always great for a nice meal out. Nice ambiance, solidly good food every time we’ve been (their pasta and fish specials have all been excellent), frequently they have live piano music, they have a great wine list, and the bar makes great cocktails if you ask (they don’t have a specific menu for the cocktails as far as I’m aware, but we’ve had a few specials just by asking).

The food was excellent. They made a special risotto for me since I didn’t like the mushroom risotto they were serving that night. It was fantastic - bolognese, peas, cream. Pappardelle was fantastic as was the garganelli with meatballs and pomodoro was perfect.

The dinner service by James the bartender was impeccable. The kind of service that doesn’t make you blink an eye at the bill because you were so well taken care of.

Celebrated with a birthday dinner at Davinci's. Absolutely love this place. It is very obvious that the owner is passionate about his restaurant, from the atmosphere, cocktails to the fabulous food. This is a special place and I highly recommend coming here for that special dinner. Wonderful.

Semi-fancy, wonderful dinner choices, quiet serene tables, dinner total bout $50 each, so good for special occasions or memorable business meal. Seafood fettuccini delectable. Attentive staff, too.

Very nice place for a date! My only complaints are 1) their rule that happy hour menu prices are only available on the bottom floor by the bar and 2) the online menu wasn't updated to reflect what was currently available. I was really looking forward to ceviche from the online menu, but didn't see it on the current one.

 (Los Angeles)·Dined on October 8, 2017

Enjoyed a dinner with family at this lovely restaurant. The food was delicious, my daughter loved the fresh oysters and my husband and I each tried a different salad to start. We were very pleased - fresh ingredients, well-prepared. All of us were very happy with our main courses, especially the chicken under a brick. The portions were generous and the chicken was tender and flavorful. Loved the flat bread too! The service was excellent - our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We will return next time we are in town.

Absolutely scrumptious scallops with seasoned peas, mushrooms and bacon. Wait staff was helpful and friendly. Much quieter than most restaurants. Pretty expensive, but it was our anniversary.

Very cold. I couldn't wait to leave I was so cold. My pasta was under cooked and not much flavour. A very attractive restaurant if we hadn't been seated in the cold room they ignored. I probably wouldn't go back.

We arrived on time for our dinner reservation, waited for 10 minutes to get seated, had someone take our wine order and after another 20 minutes, when no one brought our wine or checked on us, we left. I should mention that we watched a group of people get seated, waited on and served within the 20 minutes. Was there to celebrate my parents' 55th anniversary. Had a great meal at Bari down the block. Fantastic food and great service.

Great quality food, well presented, lots of options, salads separate from entree when ordering, a bit high end for children(though they go out of their way to accommodate), high quality brings higher prices...

The food was great, the service was so, so. It was our anniversary and we requested a certain table and our reservations was not too long after they started serving dinner, so we thought it would not be a big deal to get that table but obviously it was because the waiter didn't even look at our reservation or the fact it was our anniversary and had already seated some people at the table that appeared to be there just for happy hour. We were seated instead in an area with children and our service was so so. Have eaten their before and have enjoyed it but not this time. Will have a hard time going back

We have been eating at DaVici for over twenty five years and never get tired of it! Mo is always keeping the menus different and interesting with his main emphasis on serving fresh delicious tasting ingredients! The ambiance is wonderfully unique for Salem. Several nights a week you can enjoy great piano music by Tom and occasionally a top quality jazz group with world class singers! Mike and Maggie

Had tickets for a show at Elsinore so location was very convenient. Great service and very good food! We were seated immediately upstairs without getting to see what was downstairs so Sort of felt "left out of the party!" Maybe there was only the bar downstairs but never really got to see! It just felt like all the activity was downstairs. But we really enjoyed it and will return when in the area.
