Steakhouse
THE IDEA & HISTORY
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. Davio's has since opened locations in Philadelphia, Foxborough, MA, Atlanta, Chestnut Hill, MA, Lynnfield, MA and Manhattan.

The short ribs with the kale and horseradish potatoes was a wonderful mix of flavors. The service was impeccable and made us feel like guests not customers. The ambience was refined with a "welcome to our home " atmosphere.

Service is slightly slow and the executive lunch no longer has the spaghetti that was my favorite.

Also now there is a charge for desert even with the prefixed?

Enjoyed a terrific and intimate pre-theater dinner here. Started with the appetizer salad with greens, roasted corn, dried cherries, grape tomatoes, pine nuts, prosciutto accompanied by a rich and creamy buttermilk dressing. Plenty for 2 to share! I ordered the pasta with a marinara of San Mariano tomatoes to which they gladly added mushrooms as requested. It was exquisite! My husband couldn’t decide between the pan seared sal on or the strip steak so he ordered both - no judgement from the server! Accompanied by grilled asparagus and buttermilk mashed potatoes and the meal was a hit! Not to leave anything behind, we also shared the white chocolate cheesecake deconstructed with crumbled graham cracker streusel around a perfectly mounded portion of cheesecake, surrounded with perfectly tart mango sauce. My husband topped all this off with a double espresso which he enjoyed (I’m not a coffee drinker). Highly recommend!

This was our first time at Davio's, for steak we usually frequent Palm Too which is a couple of blocks away. It's a very different vibe, more corporate-elegant than casual like the Palm. The food was excellent, and more diverse than other steakhouses, for example, you can get pasta y fagiole soup. The ribeye was excellent, tender and cooked exactly as ordered. There was a lot left over, enough for lunch yesterday and today!

I gave 5 stars for value because they have a wine special on Sundays, when we visited. Bottles under $150 are half price so we ordered a nice super tuscan for $130 and paid $65. Combine that with their prix fixe menu and you come away with a reasonable check for a top-flight NYC restaurant.

We'll definitely return to Davio's.

Loved the atmosphere, service and food. The popovers were an amazing start. We then had the sampler of spring rolls for our appetizer. It was amazing. Best sharing appetizer ever. I had the salmon and sides of brussel sprouts and mushrooms, which was delicious. My husband had the lamb shank, which he said was delicious, and my son had the filet mignon, which was great. We had biscotti for dessert, which was excellent. We will definitely be going back.

This is a great option for people with and without gluten and allergies to share a delicious meal together without having to share the same food options. Of which I can't speak more highly of the gluten-free bread which in my mind is better than most standard bread options at similar restaurants!

Although a bit pricey, as everything is a la carte, the food is delicious, one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. It was cooked to perfection. Sides were very tasty as well. Service was gracious and attentive, and special attention was given to one in our party who has Celiac disease. They have great gluten free options. The ambiance is conducive to a romantic dinner to a business or family dinner. Although it was full (on a Saturday night), our party of seven could carry on a conversation in a normal tone, which was much appreciated. It is also right across the street from the Lexington Ave. Grand Central Station entrance/exit, so very convenient if you are taking the train. A good option for a pre-theatre dinner!

Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse is one of the best restaurant experiences you can enjoy in Manhattan. The General Manager and her staff provide an exquisite dining environment complimented with fabulous menu choices, fantastic service and a fanatical desire for more of the menu. That is why this restaurant is a must have bookmark that is so good that you may feel guilty by keeping it a secret for yourself, but that would not be a well kept secret! I invite you to relish in this restaurant treasure.

I was called asking how my experience was. I mentioned that I didn’t receive an itemized receipt, but hadn’t wanted to make a stink in front of the recruit. The first person I spoke to calculated the bill and said I wasn’t likely overcharged. The manager then berated me after taking up 10 minutes of my time to find her copy of the bill (I provided the receipt ID and table number to each). Even if I wasn’t overcharged, the behavior was atrocious from the Manager. Won’t be back.

Everything was very very good - Davio’s has been a consistent place for us in NYC for many years. Service and Food are terrific. From drinks, apps, main, and deserts. If you want a great spot for dinner mid-town west side, steps from Grand Central - Davio’s is the one.

This place is great! Our waiter, Brian, is a true professional. We asked for a wine recommendation and he nailed it without breaking the bank at all.

The octopus appetizer was excellent, the steak was perfect and the bolognese was delicious.

I would not recommend this place for a good steak. I had my doubts but wanted to try some place new. It’s over priced ! I had a $30 add on lobster tail it must have been all of 2 ounces, dry and over cooked. And a $60 rib eye, again, a small portion and nothing terribly great. Staff was nice but food for the price was a rip off. My bill was $300 with the tip for two people no appetizers and just a few drinks. Where did it all go? I want my money back!

If you want steak, go to a real steak house.
