My husband said the food was good from a long time ago but we were disappointed. The recommended dishes did not taste that great. Special lobster / crab ravioli's may not have been fresh. Probably will not go there again.

Here is a place where my wife and I disagree. We came here 5 years ago (we have been to ocean City each of the last 8 years in a row) and she was OK with it, I was displeased with the food and service. It’s five years later and I say, OK, let’s give it another try. Not the... More

This restaurant was absolutely horrible. We read the reviews and figured to give it a try. What a terrible mistake. I don't know what people were thinking! From the time you walk in it is a downhill ride. The atmosphere is nothing but an old rundown room in a cheaply oriented hotel! Lets not even discuss the restrooms.You are offered... More

There is always a long wait outside for a table but we decided to try it anyway after someone recommended it. Once we were finally seated I realized I was cold and decided to run back to my room for a sweater, I gave my husband my order and went to get it figuring everyone would be eating already when...

We chose to celebrate my FIL's 60th Birthday at DaVinci's and expected to have a great meal, especially with some of the positive reviews. We had a group of ten and a reservation at 630. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were immediately greeted and sat, which was nice. The waitress was attentive to our needs and prompt with... More

My son and I ate here for dinner. My son ordered mozarella sticks and they were fresh, not greasy and didn't look like the frozen kind. The tomato sauce had a nice flavor. I had Chicken Francais for dinner. It had decent flavor and the chicken was dry. It was served luke warm and the entire dish seemed like it... More

This just run of the mill Italian food. I found nothing special about it. I had the lasagna and personally, I think I make better lasagna. My husband had the Steak in sauce and peppers. He asked to have it cooked "medium" but it came back very rare. Perhaps they thought because there was a tomato sauce on the steak,... More

With a 4 star rating on trip advisor and a view of the ocean, we were looking forward to dinner. No salads on the menu, no vegetable side dishes, and the salad that came with the meal was iceberg lettuce drowned in creamy dressing. The fried calamari appetizer was too chewy. The zuppa di pesce tasteless and paparadelle oily. Thankfully,... More

We make sure to go here every year. Everything we have ever had is wonderful. I would go just for the salad!

Keep walking on the boardwalk! We stopped in as the advertised $10 spaghetti dishes and $12 entrees with unlimited salad and bread. None of the was to be found on the menu. The salad was drenched in a mayonnaise based dressing. The pasta sauce was very sweet and tasted like it came from a can. I was quite displeased. Even... More
