Great food, super service

AAmazing crafted cocktails, great food, warm service. We described what we wanted and they mixed it up for us. Salad arrived, great. Then the fish, perfectly cooked. Dessert cart looked tempting but we lingered over drinks with no pressure to turn the table. Fun evening!

As a frequent visitor to Philly, I have had the pleasure of dining at Davio's several times. The best words I can use to describe it are consistent and reliable. It's an upscale Italian steakhouse that offers something for everyone: beef, seafood, pasta. Not the cheapest place in town but the food and service are excellent and have never disappointed....

I was travelling with a group on business, and this is the third time I have eaten at Davios. I had the 10 oz Filet Mignon. It was perfectly done and the Barolo sauce was delicious, as were the sides I ordered - grilled asparagus and creamy mashed potatoes. We also shared the Philly Cheese Steak spring rolls.

Enjoyed fresh squeezed orange juice. Pop-overs came before our breakfast. They were soooo yummy. The frittata was flavorful. Classy dining but relaxing. Beautiful setting. We will definitely be back! Maybe for dinner!

My husband and I have been here several times- and this was our last time. The food is good however the service is seriously lacking. The one waiter, who was by far old enough to know better, had absolutely no customer service skills. This was quite surprising for this level of restaurant- pathetic actually.
