“Top Marco Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

We, as locals, concur with the other reviews that Davide is a welcome addition to the Italian choices on Marco. The homemade pasta and bread, cuisine authenticity, and the service have been first rate. I am admittedly too picky about the ideal pizza, and prefer thin and super crispy crust. I have had 4 of their pizzas, and they didn't quite pass the crispy criterion, but were otherwise as good as the ones we used to get in Chicago, and probably the best on Marco. The sausage on the Americana and Davide was quite flavorful. My wife rates the spaghetti puttanesca as 5*. A "must try" cafe for Silician style offerings--quite enjoyable.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

I'm not one to generally write reviews - but this place deserves one. A beautiful cafe tucked in a strip mall, the food was wonderful and the staff passionate about it. Very affordable and highly recommended!

“Great new addition to Marco Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. Being a long time Marco Island resident, I have seen restaurants come and go. I hope this one stays a long time. Everything is home-made. Great if you order pizza or pasta. Salads are creative and fresh. Do not miss this restaurant when you visit this island.

“Truly Italian meal and experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2011

Mama mia!!! No matter what they say - there is no other authentic Italain restaraunt on Marco Island. I had a homesick Italian with me and when we found Davide's it was like being in Italy. Not only do they speak Italian but they cook REAL southern Italian - simple food that shows the love of fresh ingredients, vegetables, and home-made pasta. Did I mention the bread? And the house chianti? Grandma REALLY DOES COOK here, and her husband Philipo sings on Friday and Saturday nights. They have a loyal following - I bet they'll soon outgrow their humble location. Molto buono! What a delight.
