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!!

I love the fresh-baked bread! My favorite meal here is the lasagna. I add a little crushed red pepper and voila!! Great meal with leftovers for the next day's lunch. :)

A locally-owned fine Italian restaurant. We really enjoy the veal (Vesuvio) and Chicken piccata. The house chianti is nice. Be sure to check for the specials- one night I had Lobster ravioli-just WONDERFUL!

Our party of 5 ate here and had a very good dinner. I had a langoustine, shrimp and gnocchi dish (sorry, I don't remember what it was called) that was very tasty but a bit heavy with a few too many gnocchi. Others tried the shrimp fra diavolo and said it was good. But the most appreciated dish was was... More
