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, Atlanta, King of Prussia and The Colony, Texas.

    The service was truly exceptional and the food fantastic. The only reason I didn’t give it all 5s across the board is because it’s in a mall right next to the movie theater. However, that does mean there’s plenty of parking and you wouldn’t know you’re beside the movie theater once you enter restaurant. FYI for those with hearing issues, my husband wears the newest technology hearing aids and he did think it was difficult to listen to the conversation between the 4 of us in our booth, even on “restaurant setting”.

    Wonderful waiter who set the tone: anticipated needs, helpful about the wine and menu. Food also delicious- had gnocchi, chicken, salads, and of course lots of popovers. Sadly we’re too full to eat dessert.

    Showed up right before they closed and they were wonderful to accommodate us -we were the only ones in the restaurant and had a business meeting so it wasn’t quick. Portia our waitress was fantastic! Shared the veal tenderloin and scallops both were excellent and had a Caesar. For dessert had the lava cake and bananas foster type dish both pretty good Good experience overall look forward to being there when there’s more of a crowd - not at the end of the night on a Monday.

    Seated right in front of the door. Lots of people walking past us all night. No bread basket was offered we had to request it. Wrong meal was delivered. Prices are high, but I understand everything is expensive these days. Bolognese had too much sauce. Egg rolls were too salty.

    My family went to Davio’s for a birthday. The service and food were good, though slow. At one point a manager, Devin, came to the table and apologized profusely for the delay. He offered to bring us something while we waited and three of us asked for glasses of wine. He then suggested an entire bottle of wine, which we said would be fine. When the check came, Devin did not comp a single item, let alone the $59 bottle of wine he upsold us. We still tipped our server over 20% (it was not her fault Devin is dishonest). But I (and those I was dining with) have a lot of experience working in restaurants, so this was shocking. I have never known a manager to use a “delay” to drive up the bill and then have the nerve to comp nothing (not even a $15 appetizer or dessert).

    Raw oysters are fabulous as is the tuna tartare. Calamari great but be prepared for the hot peppers that are part of the fare. Lobster risotto a disappointment from last experiences. Drinks from the bar are perfect -- best Martini I have had in quite some time.

    Yes, this restaurant is on the pricier side, but you really get what you pay for here. The service is top notch, and they are able to make great recommendations if you are unable to choose. Both the starter and the entree were absolutely delicious! The portions were appropriate; they weren't so big you had to take over half of it home, and they weren't so small that you do not feel satisfied. I would recommend them for a wonderful dinner.

    This Davio's is an elegant place to take friends for dinner and conversation. The food, especially the scallops with corn, the eggplant and the veal were outstanding. The waiter was very pleasant and attentive but not intrusive. We eat there often for lunch, which is also very good, but the dinner menu is wonderful.

    The service was extremely slow. The restaurant was not full but there was a large party near us so maybe that is why. We had been seated an hour before we got our food. The food was fine but not as good as we remembered. Had not been since Covid. Very airy and sat well away from others so felt safe. Dessert excellent. Side dishes overpriced for what they were. 200 bucks for three people with only one beer. Nice space. Not noisy.

    Price gouging: Charging $29 for an add on for a tiny 3 inch crab cake added on to a salad is egregious. Yes the cost of food is higher, but this is simply price gouging. I don’t know if Davio’s served the same tiny sized crab cake if it was ordered as a separate appetizer. I have been a loyal customer over the years and will not come back again.

    Such a lovely dinner experience at Davio's. As someone with Celiac I had to do some research but they took all precautions necessary. I had the most delicious roll and dinner. My salmon was cooked to perfection and a side of roasted potatoes I so enjoyed. My husband and I had some delicious special summer Rose and he enjoyed his filet and blue cheese potatoes. His popover was incredible (his words!). Our waiter was attentive, accommodating and so helpful. We will be returning soon! All worth it.

    It is fast becoming one of our favorite places to go. We have never had a bad meal here. Prices are a little high (wish they had an early bird menu.. hint hint) Otherwise, we have visited several times in the last few months and are never disappointed. Staff helped clear a booth for us and we had a great experience!
