This was the 4th birthday celebration I spent with family here. Service was wonderful, arancini and gnocchi puttanesca were delicious, Nebbiolo wine was a perfect pair. I've never had a mediocre meal, or glass of wine here!

We enjoyed our dining experience at Da Vinci's very much. The quality of service, food, and atmosphere were all impeccable. We shared the arancini appetizer and each had the rigatoni bolognese. The food was delicious. The interior is beautiful, cozy and quiet. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

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.

Very tasty. Interesting take on Italian food. A delicate fusion of Indian spices in a couple of dishes, though a first for me in a restaurant setting.

Very good food and service but that had a random "Greek night" start after 10 pm which was pretty annoying. Kept singing the same Greek song over and over.....

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.

Our annual family holiday dinner has led us to many wonderful restaurants. This is one dinner we always look forward to and the food, location and atmosphere at DaVincis was the choice for this years celebration. Seated right on time for our reservation and the restaurant filled up pretty soon after we sat down. We weren’t really aware of the other tables around us because they are spaced nicely and the noise level was never a factor. Attentive staff poured water and our waiter for the evening came right to the table. He was the perfect compliment to our evening out. He guided us through wine selections and made suggestions for appetizers and the remaining courses. Thank you David for making our evening spectacular. Food was wonderful and we tried many of the appetizers. Loved the mussels, calamari, arroncini, tomatoes with creamy mozzarella and the portions were enough for the eight of us to share a bite of each of them. On to the pasta course and it was gnocchi, pasta with Bolognese and the wonderful ravioli Marsala. Each of these were delicious and all three dishes were uniquely crafted. Main courses included the tenderloin, veal chop and chicken parmigiana. Everyone was pleased with their entree and the vegetables accompanying each were perfectly prepared. One of my favorite things at DaVinci is the Chef makes it a point to visit the table. He’s proud of what he does and he does it well. Rounding out the evening was the dessert sampler platter which satisfied everybody’s sweet tooth. Our waiter set the tone for the night with his thoughtful suggestions, attentive service and pleasant interaction. Thank you DaVincis and staff for a wonderful evening.

Disappointed. Not very Italian. Don't understand your mix of food offerings. We certainly didn't like having to make our dessert choices so early. Usually, like to wait to see how much room we have left in our stomachs. The waiter didn't inform us that the gratuity was included. We found out ourselves after checking the receipt.

The food is overpriced for the quality that you get. I was impressed by the basil infused olive oil they serve with their day old bread. I would say the experience was "okay" and would only go back if someone invited me there.
