Although this Davio's bills itself as an Italian steakhouse, it has a much larger range of excellent dishes. I had a fusilli with shrimp dish and my friend had a vegetarian pasta dish with baked eggplant. We both had different starter salads. The taste profiles and food quality were outstanding, as was the service. The location near the Arlington T... More

My wife and I were visiting Boston and we were interested in a nice restaurant to take our friends' daughter (a college student) out to dinner. Davio's did not disappoint. It was a short 10-minute walk from our hotel at Copley Square. Stellar service. The highlight of my meal was the lobster risotto but we all left happy.

Had a great dinner with my family. They have a wide variety of menu options that would accommodate most people. The service and atmosphere was great. Try to sit in the main dining room area to get the full experience. This place will not disappoint you.

If you're lucky enough to arrive on a day the prix fixe menu is available, take advantage of the opportunity to sample a starter, an entrée and dessert. The food was fresh and not heavy. The service was professional, not casual. Lovely northern Italian fare.

Good atmosphere, good service. Overall food was good even they burned and overcooked my steak. It was Saturday and those cooks were real busy. Appetizers, sides and my wife's steak were good. Solid choice if your in the area.

I had never been to Davio's before. I avoided it thinking it was too "swanky" and "stuff." I met a friend there recently and had a great experience at the bar. The bartender, Brian was friendly and very helpful with wine and food selections. It was obvious he was very busy, but he took time to make sure we were... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
