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.

A last minute choice that turned out to be excellent. The popovers that come before the meal were outstanding...even better than I make at home. Steak was great and server did a great job. Very good meal in NYC.

Everything was very very good - Davio’s has been a consistent place for us in NYC for many years. Service and Food are terrific. From drinks, apps, main, and deserts. If you want a great spot for dinner mid-town west side, steps from Grand Central - Davio’s is the one.

This place is great! Our waiter, Brian, is a true professional. We asked for a wine recommendation and he nailed it without breaking the bank at all.

The octopus appetizer was excellent, the steak was perfect and the bolognese was delicious.

One of my regular stops when I’m in Manhattan!

I would not recommend this place for a good steak. I had my doubts but wanted to try some place new. It’s over priced ! I had a $30 add on lobster tail it must have been all of 2 ounces, dry and over cooked. And a $60 rib eye, again, a small portion and nothing terribly great. Staff was nice but food for the price was a rip off. My bill was $300 with the tip for two people no appetizers and just a few drinks. Where did it all go? I want my money back!

If you want steak, go to a real steak house.

This was a very good dining experience, once we got in!!! The front door was a little deserted and physically hard to open! You then walk down a level and the restaurant is lovely and quiet and good! They even called the next day to thank us for coming.

My wife and I started with kobe meatballs (of which I still swear my late grandmother prepared) and a wonderful grilled asparagus. We had the filet mignon and the swordfish both of which were perfect!

Was very overpriced and the food took forever. Understand it's Valentines Day and the restaurant was busy but there were two tables next to us that were empty for the duration of our meal so we know it wasn't at full capacity. A restaurant should be able to service the tables it has with efficiency. If it can't, it shouldnt have that many tables. Also, $16 for a small desert cake is outrageous.

Very good meal. Octopus appetizer was delicious. Scallops with ground sausage (chorizo) was a great combination. VERY close to Grand Central. Perfect for an after work dinner and quick train ride home.

Very friendly staff, our server was really helpful. My niece is gluten intolerant and he went out of his way to ensure she was looked after without managing her uncomfortable; in fact I think she felt very special!!
The food was lovely, we all enjoyed our dishes.
Thank you for a lovely night.

Phenomenal every time I go. I stumbled upon this place by a hotel recommendation and it ended up being my FAVORITE place to eat in NYC. Love the flat iron with the garlic. I’ve gotten it 4 times never been disappointed, great! Service is second to none.

Horrible and tasteless food. They don’t put your dessert order until you eat your entree and so the dessert I wanted was not available when it was time to eat dessert. Service was okay. Meat was not done medium well like I asked. I was hungry after a three course meal. Would never go again
