Steakhouse
THE IDEA & HISTORY
In 1985, at the young and ambitious age of 24, Steve DiFillippo purchased a locally-owned family restaurant called Davio’s on Newbury Street in Boston’s trendy Back Bay. As Boston’s culinary tastes evolved, he transformed the location into a destination. He retooled the menu, the space, the wine list. The new Davio’s soon garnered rave reviews.

The idea behind Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse was simple, regional Italian foods with a focus on the grill.
Everything made by hand from the best ingredients. Serve everything from aged steaks to simple-yet-unique pasta creations. Mirror this philosophy in the kitchen with our expert and attentive staff in the dining room, seeing to your every need and taking pride in your enjoyment of the meal. Davio's has since opened locations in Philadelphia, Foxborough, MA, Atlanta, Chestnut Hill, MA, Lynnfield, MA and Manhattan.

Server could be a little friendlier. Food took a bit long to come out. Overall, still a good place to dine.

This elegant restaurant offers good service and good food. The host and wait staff offered happy birthday greetings a s was indicated on the open table reservation, and customized the desert with Happy Birthday greetings spelled out in chocolate syrup on the rim of the plate with a lighted candle. While the atmosphere of the restaurant is elegant, the choice of music playing in the dining room did not rise to the level visual elegance presented.

This restaurant was very lovely. I have been on a vacation with my daughter for a few months now, she has been feeling very homesick and has not eaten much. When we came to Davios she ate the whole dish and asked for more. She could have stayed there for the whole night but we had a broadway play to go to. Anyways, we loved this restaurant and would definetly eat there again.

I’ve been here twice before and it was always a delicious meal, excellent wine, pleasant atmosphere and the service was good. This time the service was not up to par. My party and I waited forty five minutes for someone to take our order, until one of my guests approached the Maite d. Finally a waiter took our order. The meal and dessert was excellent, but we had to ask for the check. Even at the bar before my whole party arrived, it took forever for the bar attendent to take my order.

Everything was terrific except for the veal chop. Someone in our party ordered medium rare and it arrived fresh from the cooler - barely browned. We didn't mention it to our server because we were having a blast and we didn't wish to slow our roll.

Server was overwhelmed (not her fault). All other servers had an assistant. We went 15 minutes with empty drink glasses.
The clientele and the way people were acting is not what I’ve experienced in nice steak houses elsewhere.
Food was very good, server was attentive but as I stated received no help and had a ton of tables
I booked this specifically to celebrate my sons 13th birthday and I wish I would have booked a different restaurant

Competent service...food was what you'd expect for a steak house...Can't say I say anything break thru on the menu....it's a steak house...Wine list could use some improvement...No complaints....Based on the prices its a business expense type of investment...Would be fine for couple...4 people, two bottles of good wine sea food tower and steaks...Bill was $1400 with tip

I have been to Davio’s 3 times in the past six weeks with different people for different occasions
I really like it for every reason. Staff is fab!!!!!!
Too noisy my last visit although I was asked my preference between 2 tables. Which was very responsive to my request-but it was just busy and we couldn’t hear one another speak

Starting with the hostess who kept us waiting for no apparent reason to seat us, to the slow and sloppy service of the waiters, to the overpriced but very ordinary meals, a hugely disappointing experience. Will never come again and dissuade any who ask.
