The dinner was exceptional. I had the bronzing, my husband had the pasta bolenegese... We loved the popovers and split an amble salad. The service was excellent. We shared a delicious cake dessert.
Highly recommended!

I generally enjoy dining at Davio's but Easter Sunday service was sub-par. The food looked and tasted as if it had been prepared the night before, and service was lackluster. Rethinking my plans for future dining at Davio's.

Davio’s was great! Our food was really good, I really enjoyed my calamari! I also enjoyed my short ribs! I’ve never had such tender short ribs in my life! Everything was yummy! I should of took pictures of everything we ordered! The food was so tasty I completely forgot!! However the service was fair. Our waiter was pretty good in the beginning but kind of forgot about us in the end. 30 minutes after we ate, we sat there and sat there waiting for the dessert cart to come around. Also, my boyfriends birthday cake took a while to come out. This doesn’t change how I feel about the restaurant, everything was tasty and I’d go back again.

The food and service was excellent. There were several large groups there, but the acoustics seem to keep the volume pretty low. Had the gluten-free menu and it was very flavorful and filling. My only disappointment would be the creamed corn, it was kind of bland and didn’t really do anything for the perfectly seared scallops. Great place for a family dinner, a date night or a celebration.

The chopped salad was OK, but the main courses were disappointing. The crab cakes for an entree were two small appetizer size portions. The filet, which was to have been well done, was medium at best and inedible. The steamed vegetable was full of garlic.

To the restaurant's credit, both entrees were removed from the bill.

A return visit? Not for a long time.

I went with a friend to Davio's for a late birthday celebration. We were early and seated immediately, and I had the chicken with penne dish. It was delicious, a good portion for the price and filling. Our server even provided a dessert treat to us for our birthday event. All in all it was a great experience and I'm glad to have gone there.

This is a beautiful restaurant. Food is Italian and there are many other options. Instead of a basket of bread they bring each diner a popover, and they are delicious. Most of us had a half portion of one of their pasta dishes and found it to be more than enough for dinner. They also let two of us split a salad, and again that was plenty for a first course. They were sensitive to our need to reach a 7:30 curtain at the Kimmel Center.

Poor service from the beginning lead to a below avaerage experience. As soon as we decided not to order a bottle of wine our waiters mood changed completely. I had to ask other servers and workers if they could get us more bread, cheese for our pasta and for more drinks becauae our waiter was never around and rarely checked in.

First experience was getting a drink at the bar before dinner and the bartender asked my son for proof of age. I have no issue that he was asked, but the bartender was rude. The service and the food was good, but no WOW factor. I would recommend and would go again.

Great food, except it’s interesting that the Bibb salad was actually iceberg and not Bibb. Waiter explained that it’s their take on the Bibb salad. In my opinion if you’re not using Bibb lettuce you shouldn’t call it a Bibb salad. Still it was tasty though so can’t complain too much. Just misleading.

Fantastic family dinner! Lisa was (one of) our servers and she was outstanding. The service was “seamless” which I appreciate. Water glasses were filled, plates were cleared, etc., all without interrupting our conversations (which is a HUGE must for me) I do not appreciate when the servers are constantly interrupting... if all my needs are met and I barely realize it, it is outstanding service. Lisa explained the menu beautifully, and had a professional and pleasant demeanor... Loved the round table with high back chairs. Eight of us sat comfortably and were able to converse... Round tables for larger parties are a real plus! The food was delicious. Portions are satisfying, and plated nicely. Everyone enjoyed their choices. The entire experience was enjoyed by all!
