No comparison to the one in Boston.
I had the GF prosciutto/fig jam pizza and someone else in my party had some GF penne in a cream sauce. Both were fabulous. As other reviewers have stated, Davio's isn't cheap, but we thought it was well worthwhile.
Excellent GF menu! Am addicted to the 1/2 portion of lobster risotto.
They have gluten free bread and pasta and separate gluten free menu. Half portions on all pastas so excellent special occasion meal if you are out with children. Not cheap low 20's to mid 30''s for entrées but very good, quality food.
Excellent! Great food & generous portions. Wait staff are very professional. Bring a cooler with ice so you can save room for the desserts which are unique. Wine list is also worth the trip. Located at a large shopping center so you can walk off your meal before heading home.
Beautiful restaurant and service. Extensive GF menu, better than anticipated. And when you can't decide between the penne with lobster and uni butter or the gnocchi with mushrooms & truffle oil, get a half/app serving of both instead! We also had the lobster risotto. There was a significant chunk of fresh lobster with each bite! They'll bring out fresh gf rolls (popover-ish in looks but more of a muffin texture that leaves a little to be desired but definitely fresh and warm and so nice to have a gf roll that isn't a warmed up Udi's) My husband has an auto-immune disease, so can't confirm right away whether or not he's been glutened, but they seem to take it very seriously. Our server said her sister-in-law is celiac so she appreciates the struggle for options and dining out. We felt confident they understand the importance of a GF meal. I will mention, servers seem to work as team, so maybe make sure they're all aware of allergy/restrictions. Oh, I forgot, we also had the crispy pork belly for an app. Delicious. Would go back today if we weren't still full from last night!
The most extensive gluten free menu I've ever encountered in an Italian restaurant. In fact, I was out of town attending a conference & ended up eating there all three nights of my stay. I sat at the bar & was treated like royalty. The gnocchi was out of this world as were the two other dishes I had!!! Anna, Danielle, Kim, Erin & Juan the bar back were attentive to my every need, friendly beyond belief, & helpful at recommending food & wine. In fact, my experience was so positive, I am driving 13 hours just to return to Boston & Davio's with my husband & daughter. That's how much I loved these people & the food. I wish it was closer. It is a MUST visit for gluten free dining at it finest!!!
Amazing Dinner- start to finish- many gluten free options. Delicious food. You will be tempted to ask for more gluten free bread because you never have any when you eat out...but don't you won't finish you dinner if you do! Wonderful experience. Wish I lived closer to Philadelphia just to have this restaurant as an option. It is pricy. But worth it!
I am newly GF and have been so long enough so I FINALLY feel good. Restaurants make me nervous. I had a family celebration there for my brother so I had to go. I was so happy with their GF menu though. The staff was very respectful of GF issues and made me feel "normal". This was my most positive GF restaurant experience yet!
I would give this 6 stars if I could. Amazing gluten free options. Separate menu with almost as many options as regular menu. Our waiter, Rene' was also amazing. The service and food were exceptional. Very expensive though. I would also give this $$$$.
Davio's is hands down my favorite Italian restaurant. Servers are very knowledgable of GF options and chefs/managers are willing to assist in placing orders! I have eaten at Davio's (between all of their locations) over a dozen times and I've never got sick, if you've never been this restaurant is a must!
I have to say I went to the Davios in Boston a week before this location, and I think i expected the same menu items. Their menu was much smaller and just some basic bread to start with as opposed to the mini roll/muffins at the Boston location. The food was still excellent as well as service. Just not as big of a menu.
Staff is the best, GF and regular food is excellent, one of the best experiences in a long time! Thank you!
Best restaurant in Philadelphia for people with Celiac's disease. Staff is immensely knowledgeable about Celiac's and they have a variety of gluten free options. Try the gnocchi! It's gf and to die for! Melts in your mouth! On top of it all you get a free gluten free cookie after your meal!!!
They have a GF menu and the staff made no errors on my order. I went with a group of 4 for lunch and the food was only okay and the service was not good at all. They charge premium prices but you get better food and much better service at Maggianos down the street.
I attended a wedding rehearsal dinner here during Veteran's Day week-end. Peter Joly, the manager, made this one of the most memorable and amazing meals I have ever eaten. I am not allergy to wheat/flour, but sulfites (found in wine and wine vinegars) and all milk products. He had his chefs make me a risotto and tuna steak with veggies, so decadent I took a picture of it. He also had a dessert of about 3 cups of luscious, ripe blueberries, blackberries,strawberries and raspberries> I was nervous because there were so many allergens; Peter checked on me frequently and made my first time as a customer to Davio's very special and memorable.
Davio's is absolutely phenomenal! I was able to order a GF pasta dish which tasted way too good to be true, but it was! The staff was very friendly and their menu is awesome as well, if you're looking for a place to eat without worrying about being sick after this is the place to go!
the gluten free gnocchi was great! you could tell it wasn't the real stuff, but its better than any other gluten free I've had. the bread was great, such a luxury to have bread and oil! The bar staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We will definitely go back.
Other than the fact that my steak was burnt ( and I am not the only person to say this), I got the same meal as my roommate, and all they did was take stuff off my plate. No substitutions, which is very cheap for a restaurant this expensive. It was sad when our meals came (and my plate had a lot less food on it) because I really felt that it was sad I have a gluten problem, which rarely happens to me. If you want a nice steak house, go to the Capitol grille. It is so great there!
Great large gluten free menu with vegetarian gluten free options. Great for a date night or special occasion.
Fabulous food, great service and a terrific gf menu. Loved it.
