We participated in the wedding rehersal of a dear friend's son at Davio's. The setting, service and food could not have been better . Greeted and escourted to the penthouse where drinks were served to the night views of Philadelphi on the balcony were the wrappings of a great event. Choices from the menu made the event a cross view... More

Being part of a large group is sometimes disappointing but not tonight. The wine flowed followed by terrific cheesesteak egg roll and crab cake apps made for a tasty start to a wonderful evening. Add peppered tuna and filet mignon entrees...who needs dessert? Attentive service even though there were dozens of diners was very professional. Good stuff in Philly!

The menu was extensive, the service was fantastic, the restaurant itself was really lovely, and the food was delicious! My business colleagues and I enjoyed every minute of our Davio's dinner!! Try to chicken parm spring rolls!

Service, the best of anywhere I have ever been. Already over the top in service and taste, but not good enough, we were in town to accept an award which we shared with one of our waiters and a complimentary plate of goodies with a delicate choc frosting "congratulations" penned on the plate came with desert. Very sweet and memorable... More

I had read the reviews on TripAdvisor, so I made comparisons. The room was rather noisy. We could not hear the waitress's voice across a four-person table. Two of us who ordered pasta judged it to be mediocre, especially in comparison with the best Italian restaurants. The wait staff were attentive, more so after we told them we would like... More

Based on Yelp reviews we happened upon this restaurant....and what a find!!! Superb Italian food....some of the best I have ever tasted. Fresh pasta, beef you could cut with a fork, and amazing desserts. I wish we had reason to return to Philadelphia soon just so we could enjoy this wonderful find again!!!

This is our second visit here and let me tell you that we still we're so impress by service and attention to details. The food was incredible!
