Excellent Food and Nice Atmosphere

Our meal at this restaurant was excellent. There was a nice variety of entrees, appetizers, sides, and desserts. The service was good and the atmosphere was nice. Not too fancy or pretentious, the prices were reasonable too.

Another well run place. The food is one hundred percent great. The offerings are legit Italian, as the owners lived in Italy. Friendly and well worth the visits.....we have eaten there countless times over the years.

I want to start off with the staff here are very professional and friendly. As we walked through the entrance we were greeted by the friendly and inviting host and asked if we had reservations which we did not but they were able to accommodate us, with a table for two. Our waitress was very professional and knowledgeable of the... More

I've been a regular at DaVinci's because the Italian dishes are very good and authentic! Sometimes, I go just for drinks and sit at the bar because every other Friday night there's a keyboardist who sings songs from the 60's/70's. He's good, but often sings too loud for the space. Still, he's a likeable guy and will play your favorites.... More

Invest in a POS system, find a bar tender more experienced who is faster and doesn't complain how bad things are to the customers. It's comical and sad to watch and a worse experience to be part of the feeascco

This restaurant is run by a family with recent roots in Italy and the food is both fantastic and authentic. We have eaten there numerous times and have never had anything that wasn't great. From the home made delicious bread to the salad and two different home made dressings (balsamic and creamy Italian) to the entries and the deserts, this... More

if you want the best Italian meal in Hickory go to Da Vinci's. Great atmosphere and bar area, wonderful service and the prices are great, they don't skimp on your meal also most times you will have left overs. If you go away hungry it's your own fault. The fresh made bread is wonderful. My personal favorite is the lasagna,... More

I really wanted to love DaVinci's. The owners are great and the waiters were great too. The bread is delicious. There were a number of complaints from various members of my family about the food, though. It was disappointing. One was upset about the pasta and ordered a replacement but was told that he would have to pay for both... More
