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

On our third night in Ocean City 2 of us ate at this restaurant. Service was very, very slow. I had the egg plant parm, but the side of pasta only came with one type of pasta. I wanted angel hair, but no go. Same with my husband . Not up to par with the Italian restaurants that we had... More

We went to Davinci's by the Sea while we were on the Boardwalk and we were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is a little small but what place isn't small on the boardwalk. The food was good. The service was excellent! Nick was our server and he made the difference. He provided great customer service and went the extra mile to... More

Nice restaurants in Ocean City are about as common as the Palm trees there, oh yeah, there aren't any. We wanted to have a nice quiet dinner, didn't have to be great but at least better than carnival food which is the norm in OC. So we tried Da Vinci's. The dining area didn't look bad, although the tables &... More

We found this place last year (2013) and absolutely love it. The food has always been good and the service has been good, not great. The only major drawback is there is no host/hostess to eat outside. In order to get a table, I pretty much had to watch everyone eat their meal and wait till they all got up... More

We loved the food here. We went a couple times last year, and returned again this year. I feel this is the best restaurant on the boardwalk!

The previous reviewer hit the nail on the head! I am from New York and we have great Italian restaurants here too but I've never came across something so terrible in another state. My fiance had Chicken Franchaise and I had Chicken Parm. Franchaise was like shoe leather, breaded and fried like a chicken finger. That is NOT how you... More

I was thinking it is because I am from Monmouth county New Jersey, where we have AMAZING Italian food, but I have decided it is because the food was really that bad. I got chicken franchaise and it was a cutlet covered in a sauce made with lemon juice and nothing fresh about it, with no egg batter involved whatsoever!... More

Perfect location on the boardwalk. Unlimited salad and bread! The house dressing really didn't have much flavor but the garlic butter for the bread was great. Lobster ravioli was amazing. Great service. Free Canolli from the coupon books. Worth the trip!

Well from the start our waiter was great. Very quick and friendly service. The unlimited bread and salad kept us very satisfied until dinner. The food was excellent-- the best Fettuccini Alfredo I have ever had. I was VERY impressed! My parents were very pleased with their meals as well, and even though my father is extremely picky with his... More
