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

We are staying right above this restaurant and planned to have dinner there, but went down to discover they were closed. No sign on the door, no message on the big whiteboard outside, and worst of all no indication on their website. Not open the...next day either. Sat on the porch of our hotel and watched many people, some who had come quite a distance, arrive and then turn away disappointed. If they were going to close, why couldn't they at least have made that known?More

We had dinner twice during our stay and both times the food was exceptional. Portion are quite large so if you don't have a way to store leftovers you may want to share a meal.

I'm Italian so the bar is set high for me, but I think their food was good. It was not super great but it was Italian and eatable. I thought the people were genuinely nice. I did wait awhile but I expect that for fresh...food. People want food made fresh but don't want to wait. I had a nice mimosa there. It is hard to find great food on the boardwalk so I would say this is a good place to eat on the boardwalk. I love the liveliness of the boardwalk but if its hot eat inside. Go early because there is always some sort of wait. 5:30ishMore

DaVinci's is one of our favorites in Ocean City. We have dinner there once a week and we are never disappointed. This year all restaurants are facing special challenges and it has been interesting to see how they respond. Based on our two visits so...far, DaVinci's passes the test! They are following all of the CDC protocols so we feel comfortable. And, as always the food is outstanding!More

Great food in a vacation city. It was clean, pleasant, on the boardwalk. The food was fantastic and definitely better than I expected. The bread is fantastic and so is the calamari. Kid friendly. Not very expensive. Highly recommend!!

I was blown away with how darn good the food was! So much so, we went back the next day. It is a true italian menu with an ambiance that can whisk you away to Italy. It is extremely clean. The cozy feel is just...lovely. The staff go above and beyond. They truly cater to your needs as the consumer and are very friendly. Now the best part....the food. Holy moly! It is dangerously good! My favorite was the Gypsy pasta! It has a little bit of everything! It's a red sauce pasta, shrimp, elegant olives, and artichokes. Delicious! You also get unlimited warm fresh bread and a house made garlic butter that is absolutely incredible. And unlimited salad with a homemade dressing. My 9 year old son who is a picky eater loved his spaghetti so much he got the adult sized portion the next night. I cant say enough good things about Davincis! The owner isnt someone who sits back and collects a check. He is there and he works just as his employees do. You'll see him going back and forth from the kitchen to the dining room but not before he makes sure every one is taken care of and happy. This restaurant isnt just a meal. It's an experience. I highly recommend it. I cant wait to go back!!More

Excellent low prices for early diners. They also have a wine of the day special for a bottle which will save a little cash also. Located right on the boardwalk at corner of 15th st.

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.
