Exceptional service and meal. My husband got the beet salad as an appetizer which was delicious and I got the mussels which were scrumptious. My husband got the Bolognese for his entre which he devoured, the server advised that it was the chef's signature dish and he definitely understood why. I got the pork Milanese which melted in my mouth. The entire dinner was delicious, relaxed and wonderful! We highly recommend! The only unfortunate part was the $18 charge for valet. For such an upscale restaurant, we would have expected complimentary valet service with tipping expected.

This was our first visit to DaVinci. We will definitely return. The food was outstanding, particularly the Bolognese. As good as we have ever had. Service was extremely friendly but a little spotty. The restaurant has high ceilings and hard surfaces which made it fairly loud but we did like how the tables were spread out. We were not on top of other patrons. Value was tremendous.

We loved our dinner! I am a gluten free diner, and I was impressed at the different options available for me. We ate at Da Vinci the evening prior to the Boston Marathon, so it was quite busy. Our server seemed new, so there were a couple of small mix ups (bread on my gf Caesar salad), but overall we were very impressed.

Dined for my parents anniversary. Always a great meal and wonderful service at DaVinci. We each chose items from the sampling menu. The aranccini and tomato and fresh mozzarella salad were very good, salmon was cooked to perfection, the mushroom pasta dish was fresh and light, the desserts, especially the custard and mango mousse, were perfect endings to a great dinner. Never disappointed with a meal at DaVinci!

Absolutely delicious!
We ordered the rissoto rice ball and mozzarella cheese as appetizers, salmon dish and bolognese pasta, and a mango mousse and a tiramisu during the Boston Dine Out Week. Everything was amazing, especially the tiramisu!!
We will definitely try all their deserts next time!

It is hard to be critical of the food when everything elapse was outstanding. The ambiance was warm and comfortable. The staff was just outstanding. However, I found the food to be just o.k. I had the chicken parm which did not had much flavor and the cut was too thick. The side pasta was very good. Perhaps I should have stuck with a pasta dish as the main meal.

Had a gift card for my birthday for Da Vinci. I highly recommend the Beef Tenderloin as it was out of this world. We also shared a desert sampler of 4 different items, and they were all amazing as well. Service was top notch. Would definitely go back again.

It was a janky promoter situation from the start . I reserved a seat and was rudely told to sit at the bar. I don’t know why and no clarity was given. It just made everything else crummy . The bartender was extremely helpful and friendly though and the food was great.

Kim was a warm helpful wonderful server who along with the team provided excellent suggestions for food and wine choices. We loved the lighted menus and comfortable temperature on a cold evening. The salads and pasta choices were different and delicious
and appreciated the gf options and Indian fusion. With much appreciation we would definitely return to your lovely restaurant hoping tables will still be available.

The restaurant was very cute inside. The only thing that I was not a huge fan of were the menus that lit up when you opened them. The florescent light in the menu was not easy to look at in the dimly lit restaurant. The wait staff was really friendly and informative about the history of the chef and the food. The homemade pasta was delightful and the wine was good.

We have enjoyed DaVinci and loved getting back after quite some time. Wines were quite enjoyable without being over the top in price. Service is friendly and attentive, but not intrusive, which we appreciate. The light up menus are fun and unexpected. The Caesar Salad and Mixed Greens ere both creatively presented and tasty, with just the right amount of dressing. We ate too much bread and dip, but it was irresistibly fresh and delicious. Our huge portions were delicious, and included the Scallops and Chicken Parmesan. The Pasta is fresh and made in house; too good to resist.
Sadly, we were too full for dessert, but we'll be back to enjoy the Vanilla Creme Brulee and other tasty delights.
