Would have appreciated knowing when I made the reservation for Valentine's Day that the only offering was a three-course prix-fixe menu. And while the food was good and the service started out ok, after our entrees we didn't see our server for 20 minutes. By that time we no longer were interested in dessert and our server did nothing to rectify the situation. Left with a bad taste in our mouth.

Our experience at DaVinci was amazing. It was our first time there and our friends from Toronto in for the Leafs game were impressed as well. Our host Lavi was a true professional and very experienced server. He described with passion what and how are meals were going to be prepared and served. Our glasses of water were always full and the service from a multitude of waiters was like nothing we had experienced before at any other restaurant. Looking forward to our next visit. Thanks again for the advice on the free indoor parking.

An enjoyable winter evening had at Davinci's. It was a Friday night with pretty bad weather outside which reduced the number of people. The waiting staff was enthusiastic and friendly and tended to our needs. I enjoyed a well prepared beef carpaccio, followed with a very tasty green pea risotto accompanied by 4 oven roasted lamb shanks. Very enjoyable. We also ordered a nice bottle of wine that was well prepared and poured in a carafe by the waiter to let it breath awhile. My wife ordered a beet salad which was quite large and well prepared followed by some charbroiled lambchops. Since it was the holidays and they had just reopened, the Ossobucco which is slow cooked was not yet ready. A very enjoyable evening and we will have to return to try the ossobucco another time!

We had a great meal before heading over to see Cirque du Soleil at the Bell Center. We walked over after supper. The service was very attentive. Carlo was great. Food was delicious and presentation was beautiful. Wine by the bottle was a bit expensive (and a bit too much for the two of us pre-circus) so we ordered by the glass. Nice restaurant for a special night out.

I have been coming to Da Vinci for years both for personal and business. The food was amazing as it always is. The only hiccup (and why I did not rate as a 5 star) which I would deem major for this caliber of restaurant is the waiter didn't seem to know the menu. I don't recall having this waiter in the past so perhaps he was new. We repeated our order 3 times and even pointed what we wanted in the menu and I still got the wrong appetizer. The waiter "kind of..." offered to change but you could tell he really did not want to. I knew the plate I received in error would be great and did not want to be out of sync with my husband so I did not bother to change or make a big fuss despite it not being what I really wanted that evening.

Our evening at Da Vinci was wonderful. The food, the wine recommended by our server, the attention to my guest's birthday, all were top notch. We were so impressed by the osso bucco, a dish not easy to make well. Our server was so charming and attentive. He made us two older women feel special. The only problem with the restaurant was the numerous stairs to get up to it. So not suitable for the disabled. Otherwise, one of the most memorable meals of my life!

Had the most wonderful experience here at Davinci, thanks in large part to Lavi. What an amazing person. He went above and beyond in making our dining experience the best one we have ever have. From the drink selections, to the food selections, to the ambiance, this place is second to none. We had Lavi select our dining for us that evening, and every single thing he selected was brilliantly executed. I would highly recommend going here. Thank you Lavi for the great service, food, and memory!

Let's start by saying that I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. I made the reservation based on reviews and the seating availability for time. We ended up getting our table almost 40 minutes late - knowing that, I could have dined at my first choice. The service was slow and our server/Maitre D continuously tried to upsell us. The apology for the late seating was not genuine and there was no effort made to make up for it. After being sat, we quickly got water, but had to wait another 15 minutes just for a menu - any menu, food or wine. The delivery of food was slow. The parmesan cheese was uncovered under a holiday reindeer, in the window sill, right next to the salt, pepper, and cutlery. So the servers would have to reach around us to get to these. The food is good. The space looks nice. The service is awful. I won't go back.

My husband and I were celebrating my birthday and we both enjoy the ambience of an Italian restaurant. Da Vinci is a warm, inviting space with relaxing lighting and a staff that is professional and gracious. Lavi, in particular, was quite charming, accommodating and ready to make suggestions. Honestly, the entire staff was great. My husband had the tiger shrimp stuffed with crabmeat and parmigiana risotto and let me say the shrimp were large. I had the linguine cioppino and it was fantastic! I’m a pescatarian and non-dairy so it’s rare I’m super happy about my meal but I was. I cannot complete this review without mentioning the salmon tartare was excellent as well. We were well attended and I would return in a heartbeat. Thank you Lavi & staff!!

I've always wanted to try this restaurant and I went for my Birthday because I try a new restaurant every Birthday. I was very impressed with the flavours of everything (and I'm a chef) and the presentation was gorgeous. Thanks to Carlo, the service was impeccable and he even sold me some olive oil because I loved it so much.
I look forward to going again soon!
Thanks Da Vinci for a spectacular Birthday culinary experience!

Everything about our visit was spectacular. Greeted by the owner as we walked in. Actually called earlier during the day to confirm reservation and called back within 30 mins to confirm.
Food and service was exceptional even though it was full of clients due to Andrea Bocelli concert was on.

Definitely going back to this gem.
