Wonderful restaurant—yummy food, varied menu, great service and lovely ambiance. We had their incredible chicken livers, a celestial arugula/lemon salad, and two kinds of delicious pasta. And ended the meal with passion fruit sorbet—wow. We will be back soon.

Keith was probably one of the best servers I’ve ever had. He’s personable and genuine, he created an awesome experience for us. His knowledge of the menu items was vast and his recommendations were spot on. The food was excellent as well!

We had drinks in the bar (great waitress) and dinner for a group of 7. The service was excellent, as was the food, and the room is beautiful. The only downside was that the wines were absurdly overpriced and mediocre in quality.

Once again Davio's has not disappointed. I brought 3 first timers with me and they were more than impressed. From the attention at the bar while waiting for our friends to arrive to dessert the attention to detail was a 10+ . Thank you again for making dinner in the city a pleasure.

I was there to celebrate my husbands promotion and the waiter kept telling him Happy Birthday...I wrote it on my reservation and asked for DAsti wine which they didn't have for us at the table or anything that was celebratory...The waiter spoke very fast so we could not understand what he was saying...Not what I expected from looking at the reviews....May come back because the food was actually good but probably not for a celebration.....disappointed

Excellent food and service. Red sauce is fantastic so try the spaghettini as an appetizer along with the Kobe meatballs. Cannot go wrong by ordering one of the steaks

A very good steakhouse in the heart of Philly. Parking is tough but food is worth it. The quality of food from the appetizers to the entree was exactly what you would expect from a top steakhouse. I will definitely go back.

Nice staff. Food ok. It wasn't that warm at all. We went during brunch for fathers day. Staff left empty plates and glasses on table, and didn't clear table as new plates were brought out. Crumbs left on table as new utensils were placed right on top of crumbs. We had to clean our own table and ask for our plates to be moved. Instead of asking if we were finished and if it was ok to take our plates, Staff continuously reached over our food as we ate to grab the empty plates as we were trying to pass the empty plates to avoid that from happening. Instead of excusing themselves, staff squeezed past my 9 month olds seat, without saying anything, in which the the restaurant was not crowded and we were seated in an area by ourselves. There was food and plates dropped right next to my baby. Thank God nothing hit her. The restaurant is supposed to be kid friendly but has no changing tables for babies. Staff just needs better customer service/ restuarant etiquette.

We weren’t impressed. I do not usually write reviews but for this one, the price plus the hype it was significantly underwhelming. The scallops were over cooked, the pasta was over cooked as well and the dish had an over powering taste, couldn’t taste the mushrooms that were in it. The service from Joey was great but everything else was a huge disappointment. Mad because we really wanted to enjoy this.

Chicken livers, short ribs, and cheesesteak egg rolls. Wow! Any time. Great combination of foods. I know it is an Italian steak house but so many great items. Love this place. And our waiter Keith was special. And because it was Fathers Day my wonderful daughter Jackie treated us to dinner. Fantastic dinner at a special restaurant.
