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

Wonderful food. Best Kent secret. Extensive wine list. Great menu and many selections. Home made bread. The dessert list is poor but you really don't need dessert.

I have enjoyed both lunch and dinner here many times and found the food to be excellent. The options are numerous with wonderful daily selection possibilities. For authentic Italian food, there is no equal to this restaurant in the area. The ambience is also exceptional. I have been told by friends with certain health (heart) issues, this restaurant will adapt... More
