Wonderful evening, meal and service. They have been around 28 years and still hit the mark every time out.

We love DaVinci’s for the atmosphere, very romantic and warm, the great food and very good service. The wine selection is excellent and the owner is more than happy to assist in your selection. The restaurant has a European vibe and is appointed with old world art. We enjoy the live piano music and the nice touches, like the silent film playing on the wall as you ascend the stairs. It is a lovely place for a romantic date or gathering of friends and family. The servers are friendly and provide excellent service. This is our go to restaurant for fine dining in Salem.

I love the live piano and the classic movie playing in the restaurant. Great atmosphere in a beautiful older building. Food is great, although I prefer a more traditional Italian fare and a little less duck egg on my Italian restaurant menu. Great wine selection.

Food was average. Service was good, but it was very noisy with the drum machine playing throughout dinner. It was so loud that it was hard to have a conversation with our friends. Overall it was a good night, not great.

Best bet in Salem! We dine here for all our special occasions. Wine list is outstanding and the food has been delicious every time. Great happy hour menu from the presidential salad to the special bread. Thank you James for the great bar service and thank you Moe for have such a delightful restaurant.

Over an hour for food to arrive. Waiter was pleasant, to a fault, spending several minutes talking to tables when there was service to provide. Food was fine, as usual, but wait staff is poorly trained and, as this is one of several visits to Davinci’s, it is a pattern

Although they were having a difficult evening due to a shortage in chefs, the wait staff were very polite and doing their best to manage the shortfall. Appetizers and three of the four food dishes ordered were rated as very good. My fish, however, was undercooked, basically raw, and I had to send it back. Dessert and coffee were fabulous.

They regularly have live music at the entrance and while I enjoy that, if you are close, it can be difficult to have a conversation plus near the entrance can be cold. When I place my reservation I request a table away from the entrance. My request was clearly accommodated and we had a lovely spot upstairs away from the entrance and had a delightful experience. We love their pan seared scallops - cooked to perfection!

Sadly OpenTable to make a reservation for a restaurant that was not open on the day we were going. We showed up ready to celebrate New Years Eve and the restaurant was not only closed for NYE but also is never open Sundays. It left us scrambling to find another place to eat.

We reserved a table for early evening on New Years Eve. The food was outstanding and for the 1st part of the meal the service was excellant. The restaurant became quite busy and the service became sketchy for the end of the meal. We waited more than half an hour for our desert. Other than that it was an enjoyable meal and I had one of the best vodka martinis ever. We spent almost $200 on dinner for two so it's not a place we would eat at on a regular basis but we would go back for a special occasion.
