Davio' s is a fine and sophisticated restaurant. Seven of us had a hand rolled potato gnocchi with tomato sauce and basil, as it was the night before the marathon. It was light and delicious. I would go there in a future visit to Boston.

I had dinner at Davio's with some friends; this was my first time to dine at this upscale Back Bay restaurant, and it was a wonderful experience. The service was friendly and attentive, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was refined. The center cut filet mignon and the braised beef short ribs were outstanding. The apple tart dessert was... More

Good service. Nice place. I liked the food, but I think I didnt have one of their best options. I dont agree with the comments that say this place has high prices. The price will depend on you. We had 2 drinks and 2 entrees, for us were good portions, and we spent aroun $100 . For the service, the... More

Excellent!!!we both had the lobster risotto, it was fantastic, the service was great, very nice lady and for dessert I had the apple tart that exceeded my expectations because the one they had on display doesn't look as good as it really is.

Good food at Davio's, homemade popovers are fantastic! Prices for dinners a bit high. Not for tight budgets!

A high-end restaurant that lives up to its reputation. Food was superb, really excellent, including halibut and scallops as main courses. Top grade meats. Appetizers and dessert were tops. Comfortably elegant space, lots of room between tables (especially in the booths). Very attentive service. Very easy place to enjoy yourself. Expensive, but not outrageous, and very worth it.

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.
