Third visit and excellent once again. I had langoustine, shrimp, clams on angel hair with white wine sauce. Amazing taste and perfect sauce. Spouse had shrimp scampi over angel hair pasta which was excellent. Crab cake appetizers were good. Tiramisu was outstanding as well. Food prepared by Italian chef from Naples and it shows in preparation, freshness, quality and taste.... More

We started with fried calamari -- yea-- The Lobster tail and lobster stuffed ravioli in the delicate pink sauce was wonderful.( and not horribly expensive at $32?) We also had a spaghetti plate and Gnocci Sapore Di Mare-- quite a lot of food and the bread w/ OO and balsamic vinegar was great. We called ahead for a reservation. They... More

While passing through Hickory stopped at DA Vinci for dinner. We were shocked to discover we were only patrons at 7 PM and were even more surprised to find a wait staff of four. By time of departure there were five tables occupied - unsure how staff can afford to spend evening at this property. We found the food to... More

This is slowly prepared so the wait is longer than usual but the food is good. I would not advise this restaurant unless you are a wine drinker or you do NOT have children with you to eat.

Read reviews on T/A so I tried it. Not a full meal this time just an app., I had the Asparagus Gratinati - excellent. Stalks were soft not mushy just right, with a cream sauce with prosciuto or bacon mixed in. Really good. (forgive me if I error on the meat part, memory)

We ate there in April on a busy Sunday during lunch. The restaurant has great atmosphere and the staff is very attentive. We had a short wait time but were waited on quickly after being seated. A nice touch were the fresh white tablecloths that were changed after every seating. I ordered the lasagna which had a great sauce but... More

We had chicken parm and ravioli triffolato and both were so good. The bread is oven fresh, hot and plenty of it. The calamari fritti, according to my better half, is very good! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable when you have menu questions. They have a nice wine selection and a full bar. The ice tea is great. Parking... More
