Nice restaurant with elegant ambiance. Service was great, the food was gorgeous (had calamares and then spaghetti with tomatoes). The bread was to die for. Dessert was berry pannacotta, lovely! It's quite pricey but worth it I think! Perfect for a romantic night out.

Forget the hype and other reviews-trust me or waste money- or, if you have never been to N Italy you may not know the difference. The Cesar salad with white anchovies was good..but why do they think the competent salad dressing is better with gobs of it. Show restraint and they have a winner with the salad. However the Tagliatelle... More

Big interesting menu with a large variety of high end American versions of Italian cuisine, plus grilled steaks. Ok cocktail menu and sides. Apps about $12-15, mains $30, steaks high $30s. Everything was fine to good but nothing outstanding. Chicken liver dish was the best. Mostly things lacked flavor and interest. In the end it's an expensive and safe restaurant-... More

This was a most enjoyable evening with family. The atmosphere is wonderful. Family and friends at all of the tables I observed seemed to be really enjoying themselves. The staff knows how to treat people special and the food was really good. Great portion sizes and an overall great experience! By the way...mid-range prices but a fine dining experience!!

Enjoyed a dinner here Saturday night with friends and family. Appetizers were fresh and flavorful. Fish entree was superb. Dessert was tiramisu which was a huge portion but almost inedible it was so soupy. Overall enjoyed our meal. Those who had filet were very complimentary as well

Took our family (13 in all) there for a birthday on a Saturday night. Service and food could not have been any better. Perfect night. Appetizers were served family style and enjoyed by all, entrees were exceptional, and birthday cake from the pastry chef was fantastic. Couldn't have had a better experience anywhere.

Historic bank renovation with soaring windows makes for wonderful ambience. Clever attention to food (Philly cheesesteak sushi!) including generous & creative seafood, pasta, meats plus attentive & friendly waitstaff made for wonderful experience. White tablecloth–yes, stuffy–absolutely not! Will make it a destination on next trip. Most pleasurable business dinner I've had in years. Walkable from Center City & Rittenhouse Square.

The place itself is nice. The salad that was served was... Simple and nothing that says appetizing. The buffet was a nice brunch, but again, given the location surprisingly simple. Look forward to a real meal here to see how they do.

We stayed in the hotel attached to the restaurant on a recent trip to Philadelphia. We dropped in for a late snack, drinks, and dessert. We sat at the bar. The bartenders and the rest of the staff was very pleasant. Everything we order was good.

Davios is a classic elegant Italian restaurant....the choice is good as well as the quality. We have been here a couple of times and the last one was for a wedding party...everyting was just perfect. Everything you choose is good but to me the meat is really special....a place to go.
