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.

We visited David’s on our anniversary. We had the Haddock and sides of Brussels sprouts and spinach romana. All was very good. I had noted on our reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary. There was a card on our table, and cake was brought out at the end of the meal. Nice touch. The popovers were great!

A pleasant place with nice ambiance. The service was good, perhaps a bit exaggerated. The food was not quite what we expected.

We had the best dining experience that we’ve been ever had. Our server was kind, informative, and very helpful. The food was second to none. Never ate somewhere so delicious and professional. Would recommend to every person I come across.

The steak and the fish were very good. There was a problem with some of the veggie sides but, the management was quick to apologize and remove it from our bill. Service was attentive. I would go back again.

Was almost 3PM and quiet. Nick was the server. Many time at Davio's, but Nick was thoroughly outstanding. He'll be there Thanksgiving and so will I. And, only because of him!

Over exuberant waiter as most are in US tried his best to talk up the bill which rather took the edge off an otherwise lovely Billy no mates evening.
For Americans reading this review I’m sure you find the waiter perfectly normal.
We shrinking Brits find the gushing way over the top.
A good restaurant to which I would go again.

The spinach was too salty. I was not impressed at all with the steak. I go to a lot of places for steak and that did not top my list. Inside is nice and the service could be better overall. I doubt I will go back.

Great food good service consistently. I have eaten here a minimum 30 times and they are my go to steakhouse. The other night I had the meatball appetizer for the 1 st time and it was out of this world and the boneless ribeye was cooked to perfection and that’s what keeps bringing me back. See you again soon.

We had a wonderful time. The food was phenomenal and the service was perfect—helpful without being intrusive. People obviously love it for birthdays because two other tables near us were celebrating one as well!! Will definitely be back.

I really wish that I could recommend Davio's but...
We were there on a Friday night... Reservations at 7:15 for a party of 7...
We wanted the lump crab cakes as an app... we were told - sorry, we are out of crab
When it came time to order dinner... we wanted the garlic mashed potatoes...
We were told - sorry, we are out of potatoes... How can you be out of potatoes at 7:30 on a Friday night?
A little embarrrassed as we brought friends there

Excellent selection of many northern Italian specialties. Veggies were a bit undercooked for our taste, but some like them crunchy. Attentive staff.

We both enjoyed the restaurant. The atmosphere was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend the steaks. The Brussels sprouts were done in good taste also. Dessert was yummy. We had Tiramisu and then a white cake that they brought out for our Anniversary ( compliments from the restaurant) I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Appalling experience today at lunch. Waiter appropriately addressed my lunch guest as ‘sir’ yet called me ‘hon’ ‘dear’ and ‘young lady’ as he put his hand on my arm and shoulder. He then compounded this disrespectful behavior by ignoring our table and waiting 20 min before taking our lunch order. I have been to Davies many times but never treated in such a belittling manner. Never again.

Davio's is one of the finest Italian/steak restaurants in NYC. I had the arugula salad, the halibut with roasted fennel and farro, and the tiramisu for dessert. Everything was exquisite. The dining room is beautiful and elegant, and the service is topnotch. It's a tad pricey, but worth every penny.

This is my second time eating at the restaurant. Outstanding food and wine list. Unfortunately, the temperature in the room was hot and muggy and did detract from our positive experience. I don't know if the air conditioning was not working in the dining area, but the bathrooms were delightfully cool.

I wasn’t expecting much when I made my lunch reservation for Davio’s, but I was wrong. After being warmly greeted by the friendly host, I was seated. My table was near the bar where my server came to greet me. Julia, my server, had a contagious smile. She was very helpful picking out a wine for me to go with my spaghetti. It was a relatively quick meal for me, but I wasn’t rushed, or made to wait. I had a lovely experience that I thought would end there, but then the next day I got a phone call from a hostess hoping I had an enjoyable meal and wondering if there was anything more she could do for me. I felt that was a very nice touch, one I don’t think I’ve encountered before. Overall I was very satisfied with my experience at Davio’s.

Great meal at Davios. The pastas we shared were great (house made) and the steak was excellent. My server was very kind and knowledgeable on the menu and also helped us pick a great wine. All the staff was very nice and welcoming. Would definitely go back.

Food was delicious but could have been hotter. Got the sense that it might have sat at the pass for a bit before making it to the table. This was the case with both the apps and mains.
