Absolelty wonderful meal. Got a steak, warm spinach salad and tuna tar tar! Unfortunately the sweet corn risotto showed gluten in my Nima. The manager handled it according and let the chef know. Would certainly return.

Staff was extremely knowledgeable and careful about making sure that everything was gluten free and no cross contamination. We had the truffle gnocchi, the Bolognese with gnocchi. Everything was delicious (including the gluten free roll!) and no issues afterwards

Amazing dining experience! GF bread was delicious. Had the gnocchi with truffle and it was wonderful. Even got to have a house made gelato with salted caramel and chocolate espresso sauce. Such a treat!

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.

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.

My absolute favorite restaurant in Philadelphia so far. They make their pastas and gnocchi fresh in house and they're gluten free bread too--which is insanely good (my boyfriend is not gluten free and was obsessed with it). Highly recommend.

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 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 $$$$.

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!!!

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!

Lots of options in the gluten free menu. Food was the best I’ve had in years out of a restaurant. Service was top notch. Their home made gluten free bread was really good. The desert we picked out, so good.

Will be going to Davios again in the future

My 17 year old Celiac son was there last weekend. They chose this restaurant based on the high reviews. He ordered NY Sirloin strip steak and Brussels sprouts and had to run to the restroom to vomit twice before he was even through the meal. He was absolutely glutened here. Disappointing.

Made me horribly sick... They "usually" take precautions, but also will make you sick for days if you're a Celiac
