Staff was knowledgeable about celiac disease and gluten free dining . Separate GF menu with tons of selection. Food was delicious- homemade gnocchi with mushrooms was out of this world. They Even serve yummy GF rolls instead of bread basket. Friendliest staff I have ever met. They really go out of their way to make sure you are enjoying your experience. Service was definitely 5 star! I highly recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant really is amazing. GF menu with so many options. Waitress saw I had a GF menu and immediately mentioned it and asked if I was celiac. Then brought out warmed GF bread - first time I have ever been offered. Then the most delicious GF pasta meal followed by complimentary chocolates (GF). The waitress was knowledgeable and so professional. Cannot recommend more highly - so good!!

Phenomenal. The hostess asked about my allergy, and communicated it to both my waitress and the guy who brought THE MOST AMAZING GF ROLLS. I told the waitress I was trying to decide between two pasta dishes, and she offered that I could do half and half. Both were amazing. I didn’t have room for dessert, but there were 2 gf options. Overall the staff was super knowledgeable about the gf options and the food was really good.

This place is FANTASTIC! Amazing GF bread and house made pasta and gnocchi. I couldn't decide and the waitress offered to have them do half portions so I could try a couple things and it was PERFECT. The lobster risotto and the Bolognese were both truly wonderful. I stopped and just savored as soon as I put them in my mouth. I sat at the chef's bar and had very attentive service with the manager stopping by to confirm my gluten free food. Truly could not have had a better experience. I WILL be back.

Came here for our anniversary dinner and was blown away by the service, atmosphere, attention to detail, and GF offerings. We've been big fans of Nebo, but Davio's may honestly have become our new favorite restaurant in Boston for special occasions!

I never write reviews but this is important. In theory this restaurant is celiac friendly. They have a whole gluten free menu. I ordered the gluten free sausage and broccoli raab pasta and smoked chicken and walnuts with cream sauce. They had a gluten free pasta option and gluten free gnocchi. Both of the items I ordered came with the same kind of pasta, so I asked that the cream sauce dish come with the gluten free gnocchi instead. When my meal came, both dishes came with the gluten free pasta. My waiter didn't write down my order (also anxiety provoking for someone with celiac) so I don't know if it was his mistake or the kitchen staff's. I sent the one dish back and had them make it with the gluten free gnocchi as ordered. But there were so many people running my food, (not my waiter) that I worried the whole time I was eating it that they had accidentally given me gnocchi with wheat instead. I was greeted with a basket of wheat rolls and as I was finished a cart of wheat desserts were wheeled to my table. The food was amazing but I'm going to be worried about the gnocchi :( I have celiac and hashimotos and celiac response flares my hashimotos autoimmune response. The only reason why I went here is because Nebo was closed on Sunday My experience was much better there. If you need gluten free in boston, I suggest Nebo!

Went to Davio’s for the first time this past weekend with my boyfriend for his birthday. They have a huge GF menu with the best steak I’ve ever had. The waiter even brought out some complimentary GF fudge for him after the meal! Will definitely be going back!

Unfortunately, Davio's was one of my favorite GF friendly restaurants that I had never got sick at until this week. The GM informed me after eating 5-6 bites that the meal I was given was not allergen free (GF/dairy-free). Although they did make me a new dish and removed the meal from my bill, I still suffered the consequences of this mix up that night. Please advocate for yourself to ensure your dish is indeed GF!

Extensive menu (availabile online) with antipasta/salad /pasta /main course/sides sections with 8+ choices each. Attentive service, and they were able to easily accommodate my dairy allergy as well. Portions are large, reflecting the steakhouse approach. The braised pork belly was the highlight.

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!!!

They are well versed in celiac and GF and have a gluten free menu bigger than many restaurant's full menus! They also have a GF penne that they will serve with any of their pasta sauces. They don't make it in house, but they have it, which works for me.

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!

I always had great experiences here before being diagnosed with celiacs, so I was really happy to see how good they were for me now. The waiter was very cautious and repeated/confirmed gluten free for everything we ordered. The servers all made sure to indicate what was gluten free as they put them down, and the manager also came by to check on everything. The gluten free menu is great, and I had no issues afterwards.

This place is just.. nuts. The gf bread is the best I’ve ever had. They make it fresh daily and it even has CHEESE on it like the artisan breads. Also, I had the penne applewood chicken pasta and it was incredible. Worth the price and experience by far! Will absolutely return if in Philly again.

Waitress told us that someone was going to bring over gluten free bread. Someone ended up bringing gluten bread! I have celiacs so I got very sick. Then the waitress forgot we were gluten free and tried to offer us gluten desserts after the incident in the beginning. Food was good but expensive and the event could have been avoidable.

We went to this fine Italian restaurant with my list of food sensitivities which include gluten, garlic, black pepper, cooked tomatoes, eggs and parsley. They found a way for me to have almost anything on the menu, as they cook to order. When I asked for the gluten free menu but declined the gluten free bread, word got around fast that I needed special attention. They were quick to point out they had only one fryolator so would not serve me anything cooked in it (very few items, anyway), asked if cross contamination was an issue, my courses were served by the manager, made me confident my meal was safe for me. Also delicious and artfully presented. My husband enjoyed an authentic traditional Italian meal that smelled amazing. We'll be back.

First off, I am a gluten-free diner. To be able to cone to an Italian restaurant with Handcrafted pasta and be able to order gluten-free handcrafted gnocchi is extremely exceptional. I haven’t had a gluten free gnocchi since Rome two years ago. It was exceptionally fresh, tasty and wonderful. I can only hope that they could build an outpost in the Dallas area.

The bartender was extremely knowledgeable and attentive to my allergies (GF/dairy-free) and even confirmed with the kitchen in person. Their homemade GF pasta is the best around and I haven't found a dish I've been disappointed with. The only pitfall is that their GF bread contains dairy (they seem to be the only location without GF/dairy-free bread from Something Sweet Without Wheat), that's the only recommendation I could make!

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 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.
