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.

Alot better Italian restaurants for the price. Food was ok but tiger shrimps not cooked properly and whole red pepercorns on top of raviolis that made it very unpleasant to eat.

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.

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.

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!

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!
