The pizza here is delicious...seriously, it is very tasty. But that is about it.
We went on a Saturday night. Big mistake. We were told there would be a half hour wait for a table. That wasn't an issue, the issue is having no where to wait. Their little lobby was so jam packed. People just kept coming in and walking out. Someone else on here made a comment about people watching them eat and waiting for their table, that is exactly how it is. People stand in the doorway waiting for you to eat so they can have your seat. That sucked.
Our server wasn't very good. She was waiting on too many tables at once. That is what she kept saying to every table she was helping. My father in law loves his spaghetti spiced up, they call it Arrabbiata sauce. Any other Italian restaurant we go to has no problem accommodating him but this place just seemed so annoyed by the simple request to spice up the sauce. The server didn't even try to accommodate, she was just like "no they aren't going to make it any hotter for you". That is a great way to decrease your tip.
There was a table with two children next to us and the parents asked where the children's menu was. The same server "taking care of us" told them that there wasn't a children's menu tonight. She told them that since they were so busy they chose to have only a few simple selections available for the customers tonight. Are you serious? Too busy to offer the full menu?

So like I said, the pizza is delicious. The spaghetti was mediocre. The service on a Saturday night is horrible. I would suggest visiting during the week. Maybe then you can get a table without being jammed in a small doorway and without having people glare over you. And you can also have the full menu. I suggest a pizza take-out.

Modern decor, similar to those you would find on main street in moderate to large northern cities. The waitress was friendly and efficient the food was moderate in cost. Most of customers appeared to be local residents.

The restaurant is on the north part of Main Street with its own parking lot.

Davinci was recommended by a local....can't say that we would go back. Service was ok...food was just ok....We definitely would have gone elsewhere.

This place is awful. Totally awful.

We were there for lunch and had the buffet. It was a total bust. Nachos with toppings, tacos, some sort of past dish, and some funky looking pizza (with lettuce on it ?!?!) I ordered the soup, which was totally weird and way too sweet. Sweet soup? Gross.

Our table was attacked by a large moth while eating. My wife caught it, put it in a container that some condiment had come in, and returned it to the staff. Not so much as an apology for their disgusting dinner-side entertainment.

I wanted a refill on my drink, and had to ask. Twice.

To be perfectly honest, the free 5:30 snack buffet at our restaurant was 10 times better than the schlop we paid for at Davinci's.

Stay away. Far, far away.
