We visited Philedelphia with our two boys and we were looking for a nice restaurant. Davio's was in the neighbourhood of the hotel and the reviews good. We had a great evening at Davio's. Our starters and the main courses, everything was excellent. The servants were very friendly. This restaurant is expensive, but it is really good.

I visited Davio's with a business associate. I love this restaurant. The service, atmosphere and food are always excellent. I had pasta bolognaise and my business association had the rigatoni special. Both dishes were awesome. This restaurant is a staple visit when I'm in Philadelphia!

The three factors for me are service, food and ambiance. All three were outstanding. The waiters and maître-des were very attentive. They called us by name. The food was very good, excellent presentation, not in expensive. Worth a special evening.
