I had a very nice dinner the other night... chicken marsala. Large portion with enough to take home for lunch. Sat at the bar and Gaga was great. Sauce on pasta was yummy as was the bread and salad. I will say glass of wine...was a bit expensive. Wish they had a better view since you are down a half level. Good meal and reasonable food prices.More

It’s not a high end Italian Restaurant it’s like my local Pizzeria with a very good wait staff. I had Veal Parm it was decent. This place is a good restaurant at a fair price.

Excellent service, drink prices, and serving portions the chicken Marsala was awesome. we really wanted to try the cannolis but after dinner we were just that full, my daughter(10) loved her Alfredo so much that she asked if we could go back again tonight. If...our family didn’t have a rule of one dinner place a night on vacation we would. Also compared to some restaurants the pricing was very reasonable.More

Very disappointing to be charged 2 X $7.95 for sharing ONE meal that wasn’t even split in the kitchen. No extra plates were given. I had to ask for a plate; my husband used the entree charger for his plate. No where on the menu...is a ‘sharing plate fee’ mentioned. The manager said it used to be there. WHAT?! They removed one charge as a mistake but insisted on the other. It’s incredible that we paid for something not on the menu that we didn’t get! Neither were we told by the waitress NOR did we ask for or expect additional salad and bread. This was our third time there in our beach week. We shared a few nights ago, and there was no ‘sharing plate fee’. We returned because we thought the food was a good value, and our two grandchildren(10 & 11) like the kid’s menu. Customers have a right to know surcharges and prices up front.More

Very good eggplant parm. My husband had the special (spicy sauce, mussels. pasta, scallops etc) We both like the sauces we had on our entrees. Salad and bread came with dinner. We enjoyed a bottle of wine with dinner. My husband is not a fan...of any red sauce. He said it was best (sauce) he ever had. Good amount of mussels as well. Eggplant was good. I do not like a tough skin. This was good, flavorful and tender. Would go here again. We walked in, restaurant texted us when they were ready to seat us. We had a party of two.More

Our waitress melisa was very kind/accommodating to our needs, she checked in on us frequently and the food was great and reasonably priced!

Food and service were both phenomenal for a casual on-the-boardwalk restaurant. The lobster ravioli had chunks of lobster inside each one (not minced) and sauce was just lovely. The wahoo special was incredible and seasoned beautifully. All you can eat salad (excellent house dressing) and...bread basket (warm, soft with herb butter). We came back the next night for chicken piccata and Marsala both done perfectly. The meatball app did not disappoint; they are so light & fluffy and taste just like my Nana’s. Highly recommended. Bravo!More

40 minutes from being seated to being finished? Ordered an appetizer that came after the salad then our meal came before we finished our salad. Waitress asked to clear our table before we finished dinner. We visited this place before and did not have the...same experience. My chicken parm arrived with the cheese on top burned to black. My husband's chicken marsala was ok. I understand wanting to turn tables quickly but this was ridiculous.More

2020 has been the year from hell for all businesses, but there is a special zone in hell for restaurant owners in Ocean City! Despite all that DaVinci's has faced they still have managed to produce an outstanding dining experience! They have found professional servers...and the food is, as always, fantastic. There is no place in this town that is better!More

I’d like to apologize if there was confusion about where you should have been waiting. However your reaction at the time and treatment of our staff was unacceptable. Yes we choose to disassociate from rude people.

We do no longer take reservations, if you call prior to arriving and we have a wait we will add you to the list prior to your arrival. Seating is limited so it is recommended that parties larger than 8 plan their visit... More
