Good food, but I won't be going back due to rude service.

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... read 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

I have been to Da Vinci's Italian Restaurant many times for private parties, dinner meetings and personal dinners. I can say without hesitation that I have never had a bad meal. The food and service were always excellent. I have been to Italy and this is the closest authentic Italian restaurant that I have found in the states. I also... More

Da Vinci's is predictable. It's always excellent. Certainly an upgrade from any Italian chain. Go local. You won't be disappointed.

We've been here often for dinner, but have recently checked out their lunch offerings as well. Have to say that it was one of the best lunch experiences we've found. Starting with the same fantastic bread and oil that they have in the evenings, the service was excellent and the food was too. So far we've tried sandwiches and salads,... More

First time here. Loved it. Great bread, wine, service and the food was amazing! May have taken the place of Carrabbas. With drinks, appetizer and 2 entrees $70 bucks. Wow!!
