We took my in-laws to dinner last night for their 52nd wedding anniversary and everything was delightful. From the time we were seated to the time we retrieved our coats the wait staff was courteous and attentive. Peppino the Executive Chef came to our table and greeted us and also came back after dinner and asked us how dinner was. We had a great experience. Every course, every plate was amazing. Could not have scripted a better evening. We will be back again!

Pros: Valet, coat check, wait staff, food, wine, chef etc. It was an amazing evening.

Cons: Did not have one

They try but not hard enough. It could be a very pleasant experience.... but: My large, beautifully plated, well seasoned fish was overcooked almost to the point of being dry. Who wants to wait 20 minutes more for them to rectify the situation?
Lovely room, but so crowded with tables that the waiters had to pause to let others go past.
We passed on the $5 coffee and desserts were $8 to $10.

My husband and I have eaten at Da Vinci four times over the past two months. We are long time fans of Terramia in the North End, and we've concluded that Chef Beppino's creations rival, and in some cases surpass, the outstanding cuisine of the North End. Every meal has been delectable -- we want to work our way through the entire menu! Most recently we took two other couples to Da Vinci and were treated royally. Chef Beppino stopped by our table to ensure that the food and service met our expectations, and he was so humble and gracious. You can tell this is a man who derives great pleasure in sharing his culinary talents with an appreciative audience.

Some standout dishes include: pork chop wrapped in pancetta (best pork chop I've ever eaten!), pappardelle bosciaola (a must for lovers of mushrooms), duck in plum sauce, scallops with artichoke tapenade, and fusilli bolognese (it's a close call, but my husband decided that Chef Beppino's bolognese sauce has a slight edge over Terramia's, though both are fantastic). Da Vinci offers a tasty selection of desserts, but be sure that someone in your party is daring enough to try the trio of gelati (ice cream). I would not have believed how delectable basil gelato could be. (Yes, basil!)

Good wine selection and attentive service round out a splendid dining experience. We expect to return at least once a month.

We went in a group of 4 and had a wonderful experience. Note that we are food enthusiasts and try most new restaurants in Boston. Whoever reviewed the service to be rude must have made a mistake - not only were they FAR from rude, the service was exceptional. Staff was knowledgeable and went out of their way to please us. Everything we ate, from bread onwards, was delicious. The pasta trio was unforgettable as were the desserts. Comparable to the finest in the North End, Da Vinci is a must-see.

Great Atmosphere. Had a great time with my wife. We started out with some homemade appetizers. My wife had Bolognese and I had the FIlet Mignon. Both great dishes. Served on time and with a knowledgeable staff member's recomendation for wine. We had an amazing experience. The dinner was finalized with a nice Creme Brulee and Crosttata deserts. My wife and I will defintely make reservations to come back.

I finally made it to Da Vinci with friends to break the code. i am please to say that we succeeded cause we enjoyed a wonderful service and an excellent Italian meal. The Decor was beautiful and well polished with a modern touch to it. Excellent food presentation, pasta tasting a great selection :oP<3 not to forget the souffle. We appreciated when Chef Peppino walked around and made sure that we were happy and everything was ok. I highly recommend and will be back again.

I went there with a friend during the first week of opening, I felt it was very disorganized. The waiter messed up our bill and over charged us for an item we never ordered. The food wasn't anything close to spectacular for the price. I won't be going back anytime soon. The only thing Di Vinci has going on is its atmosphere.

I have visited Da Vinci with few of my co-workers on a Friday night. The restaurant was very busy, but they still managed to sit us down in a timely manner. The wood was great, very flavorful. Good selection of wine and I personally think the best Tiramisu in the city. I will definitely go back.

I went to Da Vinci with few friends on Friday and it was very good. We had to wait for 25 min so had a drink at the bar. The cocktail list was very creative and the bar crew very friendly. Our waitress Sanaa was great, very helpful and attentive. We saw review on Boston Herald and tried the dishes that Matt recommended and we were very happy. The Grilled Portobello with fontina cheese was full of flavors and the Veal Chop was cooked as I asked. My friends tried the pasta which we were told was made in the restaurant every day. It was delicious. I wish that Sanaa told us that the suffle takes 20min. We wanted to try it but had to go with other selection since it would take to long. Ohh well next time.

Beautiful decor, great location and prices, and very attentive service - that almost perfectly describes this new Italian restaurant in the heart of Boston. I went there during the week and was very glad I came. The food is delicious, and the chef even made the effort to come out and talk to us about our experience. I highly recommend the home-made pastas and the pollo da vinci was excellent. Once you are here also don't forget the chocolate souffle!

I usually can find something that I like in any restaurant and this was no exception but I did have to look. The crowd was ok but the service and value was not. I thought the food was average or below and the service was rude and slow. If you're looking for italian in this area, walk a few blocks to viamatta

Editorial from

Boston doesn't have many chefs focusing on the authentic cuisine of Naples and surrounding Campania, so this upscale Central Italian at the nexus of Park Square, Bay Village, the South End and Back Bay is a welcome dining option. Before he…
