Lavi is a waiter second to none. He makes his customers feel special. The gnocchi is the best I have ever eaten. Prepared by a chef called Alex, usually gnocchi is doughy but these were not. One of favourite restaurants

Visiting Montreal from Connecticut for our anniversary. We had a 8:45 reservation and did not sit down till 9:15. Service was slow and the restaurant was very loud. The Beat Salad was tasteless but my Porcini Ravoili was very good. My Tartufo desert came with a piece of the wrapper on it which I almost choked on and it was the worst Tartufo I’ve ever eaten. They comped our desserts, apologized and brought me a new one. I would not recommend this restaurant for a Romantic dinner at all. Maybe more for a business or a friends gathering.

We came to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday! We have been to Da Vinci’s before and had the best time! It did not disappoint! Lava is the best server and knows just how to take care of us! He is always welcoming and accommodating. He remembers you even if you haven’t been to the restaurant in months. We will be back to see Lavi and Da Vinci’s again soon!! Thank you!

Elegant surroundings, polished service. Food is very good Italian cooking. Portions are not large, beautifully presented. The background music is not loud and the tables are well spaced so you can hear what people at your table are saying. Also great for a romantic dinner.

Carlo, our server made this our best night in Montreal. He suggested an off the menu dish for me and a spot on veggie dish for my wife.

My wife is an Italian Pino Grigio only person, I like Italian reds. Carlo set us both up with a great choice by the glass.

We loved this experience and the food. I will remember this for a lifetime!

Part 2 of my evaluation: pls note that while visiting Montreal this is our 2nd time dining at De Vinci over 2 day span. Again the service and food was an exceptional experience. No matter what you order you are sure to enjoy. I wish I could pack them all up and take them back to Wash DC!

Our experience was so amazing that I don’t know where to start. My family of 5 was visiting Montreal and found Da Vinci on Opentable. There’s is something offered for all tastes. We ordered 6 appetizers, 6 entrees, desserts and coffee. (We are big eaters). Every part of the meal was delicious! Then to make our evening complete, Lavi treated us like royalty. There are no words to truly explain our dinner but I will say it was a true dining experience that I’m not sure any other restaurant in Montreal can top.

Da Vinci is a nice quiet setting in a beautiful Victorian Mansion. Food is good but menu is relatively small so don’t go expecting a very wide selection. Wine list is only for bottles and they have a very limited selection of wines by the glass. And if you wish a cocktail, I think your best bet would be a simple classic.

We had an amazing dinner last night at Da Vinci. The ambience, service, and of course the food were all exceptional!

I highly recommend that everyone try the Alaskan King Crab Raviolli. It was phenomenal. The cream sauce with a hint of saffron was to die for. We also had the Oso Buco which was so tender and flavourful. The host told us that everything is prepared in house and fresh daily and you can definitely taste the freshness and quality in the food.

The Manager and Host, Lavi, was so welcoming. He checked in on us multiple times, made great food and wine recommendations and made us feel like we had been going to this restaurant for years. From what I saw, this same service was awarded to everyone in the restaurant.

We are visiting Montreal right now but this definitely a restaurant we would come back to on our next visit. I highly recommend this restaurant who wants to have a dining experience.

My wife and I came in to MTL on our way home from stops in Ontario. We needed a spot to make up for a lackluster experience a few days ago. Our server Carlo and the staff at Da Vinci went above and beyond.

Carlo was willing to explain the menu to us and offer suggestions. He made us feel at home and was beyond patient. We ate and enjoyed the ambiance in delight. He was personable and took a genuine interest in our experience. Go there for the food and be pleased by the service.

I traveled to Montreal to celebrate my birthday and chose Da Vinci’s for my birthday dinner. They did not disappoint! The restaurant is beautiful! The service was amazing and the food was excellent! They were informed it was my birthday so they sang and gave me a delicious dessert with candles! My friends and I were all treated to limoncello as well. Wonderful night!

If you are traveling to Montreal DaVinci is a MUST. The food is fabulous-the service is impeccable. Believe me you will not be disappointed. Our head waiter was so on point with his recommendations on pairing the right wine with our dinner selection and to end the evening he put together a dessert plate with after dinner liquors that was amazing!

I had dinner with my wife on our wedding anniversary. We came up all the way from New York. I was worried about being late due to the parking in Montreal but Lavi ensures me not to worry and that if I was late they would hold my table as long as I needed. Being that My wife is pregnant 6 months, I worry sometimes on where we are sitting or the service so she is comfortable. Lavi and his team including wonderful Carlo made me and my wife feel like a king and queen. I have never been treated with better service in my life and the food was ridiculous. Being a New Yorker, you think the food can’t be better anywhere else, especially an Italian going outside NYC to Montreal and eating at an Italian restaurant. It was insane how good the food was. We were so very impressed and beyond happy we came here. I highly recommend you come here as a priority when in Montreal and especially have the pleasure of Lavi being your host.
