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.

As a diabetic who doesn't eat wheat or any other grain I'm always leary of "Italian" restaurants as they're generally focused on pizza or pasta. Da Vinci's is so much more. A menu of dishes that can be customized to your desire. That's the best part of a small place - the experience is all about you! Wonderful chef and... More

We sought out DA Vinci's based on reviews and comments at our hotel. It is Italian, in a large mall, mostly indoor seating (tables or booths), upscale decor but very cliche. There is a nice range of choices on the menu. It is affordable with main dishes at $10-$14. Total bill was $30 for 2 with tip (no drinks and... More

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
