I had dinner with my wife on our wedding anniversary. We came up all the way from New York. I was worried about being late due to the parking in Montreal but Lavi ensures me not to worry and that if I was late they would hold my table as long as I needed. Being that My wife is pregnant 6 months, I worry sometimes on where we are sitting or the service so she is comfortable. Lavi and his team including wonderful Carlo made me and my wife feel like a king and queen. I have never been treated with better service in my life and the food was ridiculous. Being a New Yorker, you think the food can’t be better anywhere else, especially an Italian going outside NYC to Montreal and eating at an Italian restaurant. It was insane how good the food was. We were so very impressed and beyond happy we came here. I highly recommend you come here as a priority when in Montreal and especially have the pleasure of Lavi being your host.

Très bonne ambiance et conviviale. Les repas sont délicieux et les portions assez grandes. Grâce à notre serveur Carlo, nous avons passé une soirée très agréable mercredi soir le 18 juillet. Amical et très sympatique, cela ne l'a pas empêché d'être très attentionné et très professionnel. Qu'il en soit ici remercié chaleureusement.

We booked a last-minute dinner at Da Vinci Ristorante during our weekend trip to Montreal and would unequivocally recommend the restaurant to any friends making a visit. From start to finish, the food and service were impeccable.

We started with oysters, the beet salad + burrata, each of which was extremely fresh and delicious. We split an order of the ricotta gnocchi with mushrooms which were the lightest gnocchi we had ever enjoyed. Carlo, our fabulous waiter, plated our portions separately even though we were sharing a single order - always appreciated, and done without request! For our mains, my husband ordered the lamb and I had the breaded bone-in chicken with burrata. All in all, the meal was filling and felt extremely authentic to this pair of Italian-Canadians! We didn't have room for dessert, but we did have an espresso each - delicious!

This restaurant had a totally authentic feeling that an Italian restaurant should have - coming from an Italian girl. My husband and I both loved our meals. He had the linguini fini del pescatore, the lobster was quite literally the BEST either of us have ever tasted. I had the European sea bass which was equally as delicious. We had tiramisu and espresso for dessert. From the fresh olives and Parmesan served at the start of our meal to the amazingly personable and attentive service of Lavi & Ryan, I can't say enough good things about the food, the dining experiencing, and the entire evening. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice night out!

Les vins sont extrêmement chers. La bouteille la moins chère est à 50 dol Mais surprise! Il n’y avait plus. On nous recommande une autre au même prix et surprise à la facture était 20 dol plus chère. Le serveur nie avoir dit qu’il avait une autre au même prix. Une salade de roquette 17 dol avant taxe et pourboire. Un drink très petit au même ptix. C’est du arnaque. Ce restaurant ne vaut pas la peine!

The restaurant was quite lovely inside. It was elegant but comfortable. Our waiter/mgr explained a number of dishes as well as wines and all of his choices were excellent. Our wine and food were both quite good. At the end of the evening he gave us complimentary glasses of limoncello, which we appreciated. I would go back in a heart beat.

We were seated 35 minutes after reservation time, after witnessing a couple leave as they had waited too long to be seated. The customer next to our table mentioned he waited over an hour. We sat around and got served waters and one piece of bruschetta. After 20 minutes, we had not been helped, or even given a menu. We decided to leave, as it would not be worth the wait.

The restaurant is a small refined place without unnecessary embellishments. The wine list is broad with many accessible fine bottles. Our server was a delightful mix of proper and personality plus. He is definitely a huge asset with his Abruzzi accent. The burrata was delicious as were our pasta dishes.

I had an amazing experience dining at Da Vinci. We were the first to try the lunch menu special and it will certainly not be the last time we do!

I went for my graduation lunch and was treated with the utmost amazing service. The restaurant was quiet and the food was spectacular, on time and perfectly done. I had the Atlantic salmon and some of the all natural, grass fed Argentinian steak. Both were delicious, served hot and fresh!

I would highly recommend this restaurant and suggest the lunch special as an amazing deal for a set two course meal! Of course, the dessert is what truly exceeded my expectations.

The cannoli was divine with citrus notes and an amazing ricotta cheese filling. The tirimisu was also truly authentic and amazing.

The only criticism I would have is in the appetizer dishes. The pasta was fine but the arugula salad (made of only arugula, light dressing and Parmesan) could include more variation and flavour.

Overall, a great experience and wonderful graduation memory!
