Steakhouse
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. Steve has since opened locations in Foxborough, Lynnfield, Logan Airport, Boston Seaport, Philadelphia, Manhattan, Atlanta and Irvine, CA.

First indoor experience since the pandemic and I was nervous. The high ceilings are great, the distancing was great...everyone was professional and wearing masks. We were very comfortable! Food was outstanding plus extra popovers and birthday macaroons added to the entertainment value that we've been craving since March.
Loved the crab app and nothing like homemade pasta! Husband raved about his steak too! The birthday girl had the bacon octopus and was totally satisfied before the entree even came.
Generous portions and so well executed!

A wonderful italian meal with attentive but not intrusive servers. The tuna tartare appetizer is always excellent, and I enjoyed the scallops for a main course. Well managed under Covid requirements. Happy to support this wonderful establishment!

Beautiful room properly scaled for Covid regulations. Service prompt and courteous. Beverages well made. We had Caesar Salads with Salmon and Shrimp. Both amazing and the bread basket is well done with house made potato chips. Finish with espresso. Fantastic luncheon on a sunny day.

Davio's in Chestnut Hill has been a favorite spot of ours for years. During COVID, they have been struggling. The service is sloppy and inconsistent. The food is good, but not spectacular. The dining room lacks ambiance. There are many other options in Chestnut Hill.

I received a $43.00 sirloin steak that was inedible, which was tough, tasteless and extremely fatty. The appetizer with mushrooms and ricotta salata had no ricotta in it.

The only good experience was the waiter Rob, who was attentive and excellent. Would never go there again.

The service was terrible considering there was only 1 other table being served. Initially he was attentive but once we got our meal we never saw him. He was talking with an employee & I had to find him to get more drinks, our water wasn’t refilled either. He never came by to see how our meals were. Again I had to find him for Parmesan cheese which should have been asked when food was delivered.
Very disappointed!

The service was excellent. Our server Jimmy was very attentive. The food was excellent. Jimmy had them make our dessert special because we were celebrating our anniversary. Even the manager came to our table to wish us a happy anniversary. We have been to other Davio’s but first time to the Chestnut Hill restaurant. Would definitely return. High praise.

From the moment we made the reservation, to entering the restaurant, being seated, and then greeted by our waiter - all worked in together to make our night out feel special. The food was outstanding and the cocktail we ordered was perfectly balanced.

A very nice dinner in a quiet atmosphere. The special pasta was delicious and love that you can get it in a smaller portion. Service was perfect- felt like a private dining room.
