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.

    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!

    As always, another great experience at Davio's. The waiter, Jesse, was engaging and attentive, the food was great (and just the right portions), and the GM came over and said hello to us at one point, offering if there was anything he can help with. A double thumbs up visit.

    We have always enjoyed this restaurant but had some disappointment this time. My husband’s veal chop was very over cooked. The manager did a great job about replacing it and bringing fresh hot sides dishes also, so that was good. Then they didn’t charge so that was good too. But it was so unusual for something to be served that wasn’t cooked the way it was requested. It was amazingly expensive as well. I ordered crab cakes for my entree. There were 2 small crab cakes, nothing unusually good and cost $45. I was outraged! I wouldn’t have minded the price if they were fantastic.

    We love this neighborhood gem and have been going there for years. Great/delicious food selection and excellent bar selections available. Sitting at the bar is a comfort and easy get in/out if going to the Superlux next door. They have very nice table/booths for a more quiet setting.

    We had a lovely time on a Sunday afternoon. Ceasar, Flat Iron, and Afogato, all superb. The service could not have been better. It was kind of chilly in the restaurant and the dessert cart was being swarmed by flies. The actual dessert was delicious...but they should maybe keep the displays under glass. Highly recommend especially if you are taking in a movie next door.

    It was pretty bad experience, we order dry aged ribeye and they gave us different steak, I asked medium well and they gave me medium rare. I couldn’t finish my plate, they took very long to come and ask if we want water, it didn’t worth the price we paid for.

    Very disappointed the prices are now so high. Unfortunately, we can't come back. We always go to Davio's for special occasions and relatives give us gift cards for Christmas, etc.. I told them not to give them to us anymore because it's now out of our league. We both ordered the penne applewood dish. My husband always orders this. I only ordered it because it was the cheapest item on the menu. We had a $100 gift card. I didn't care for it. I usually get the scallops with risotto but it is now $49. We used to enjoy the fish tower appetizer for $49 but it is now $75. If the world ever gets back to normal and the prices, we'll come back but until then we won't.

    Waiter spilled water on me , water got on the phone, the jack got wet, my phone wasn't working for 12 hours. They didn't change table cloth, just bunched it up, we had to sit like that at the table and eat our desserts. It was my daughter's HS graduation and didn't feel great at all. Disappointed and it cost us $200, not cheap for that experience
