Les vins sont extrêmement chers. La bouteille la moins chère est à 50 dol Mais surprise! Il n’y avait plus. On nous recommande une autre au même prix et surprise à la facture était 20 dol plus chère. Le serveur nie avoir dit qu’il avait une autre au même prix. Une salade de roquette 17 dol avant taxe et pourboire. Un drink très petit au même ptix. C’est du arnaque. Ce restaurant ne vaut pas la peine!

The restaurant was quite lovely inside. It was elegant but comfortable. Our waiter/mgr explained a number of dishes as well as wines and all of his choices were excellent. Our wine and food were both quite good. At the end of the evening he gave us complimentary glasses of limoncello, which we appreciated. I would go back in a heart beat.

We were seated 35 minutes after reservation time, after witnessing a couple leave as they had waited too long to be seated. The customer next to our table mentioned he waited over an hour. We sat around and got served waters and one piece of bruschetta. After 20 minutes, we had not been helped, or even given a menu. We decided to leave, as it would not be worth the wait.

The restaurant is a small refined place without unnecessary embellishments. The wine list is broad with many accessible fine bottles. Our server was a delightful mix of proper and personality plus. He is definitely a huge asset with his Abruzzi accent. The burrata was delicious as were our pasta dishes.

I had an amazing experience dining at Da Vinci. We were the first to try the lunch menu special and it will certainly not be the last time we do!

I went for my graduation lunch and was treated with the utmost amazing service. The restaurant was quiet and the food was spectacular, on time and perfectly done. I had the Atlantic salmon and some of the all natural, grass fed Argentinian steak. Both were delicious, served hot and fresh!

I would highly recommend this restaurant and suggest the lunch special as an amazing deal for a set two course meal! Of course, the dessert is what truly exceeded my expectations.

The cannoli was divine with citrus notes and an amazing ricotta cheese filling. The tirimisu was also truly authentic and amazing.

The only criticism I would have is in the appetizer dishes. The pasta was fine but the arugula salad (made of only arugula, light dressing and Parmesan) could include more variation and flavour.

Overall, a great experience and wonderful graduation memory!

the price is very high for the amount of food. We were there at 7:00 pm and we had to ask for the menu and it was 8:00 pm. It took for ever to get the drinks . Menu was not what it was on the menu. We got out meals around 8:45 pm

The calamari was excellent. The lamb risotto was just ok. The lamb chops were not special and the sauce was heavy and uninspired. The tiramisu was excellent. It was very expensive.

Quel délice culinaire. Le service et la nourriture étaient impécables. Nos serveurs (Lavi et Carlos) étaient très serviables et attentionnés. L'Osso Bucco et les linguines de fruits de mer étaient exceptionnels. La carte des vins était bonne. Je retournerais sans hésiter à cette expérience gastronomique.

I`ve dined here a few times. Great spot if you are looking to have a good meal before a Habs game. The service is prompt, courteous and you are always greeted with a welcoming smile.

It`s on the pricey side, but well worth it.

Divinci was a great find while we were in Montreal. It was centrally located; an easy walk from my hotel. We were welcomed at the door by our waiter, Carlo, who was very friendly. He was very attentive to our needs and assisted with menu recommendations and with the wine selection. Food was presented in a timely manner and was exquisite. This was a a great find and recommend it to travelers and Montrealans. We will definitely return on our next trip to Montreal!

For several years now we have been going to Da Vinci for lunch each time we are in Montreal on our twice yearly, week and a half long stays. The quality and authenticity of the cuisine is consistently at the high level that we have known and come to expect over years of travel to Italy. This is our one Italian restaurant in Montreal. Impeccable service on this visit from Lavi and the team. Do not hesitate to go. You will not be disappointed.

We ordered the stuffed shrimp on a bed of risotto. When asked for a recommendation of a wine to match the meals, the waiter (Lavi) suggested suggested a bottle of the red house wine. It seemed like a strange recommendation but we went along with it thinking he would know the meal and their wine list. I don't think it was a particularly good match. It turns out he is new to the restaurant and, in hindsight, I don't think he knew much about their wine list and just defaulted to a house wine. The amuse bouche and bread was very tasty. The mains were decent but lacked that hit of flavour that makes you say wow. We were thrilled with our meal and experience the last time but this meal and experience fell short.
