Excellent food and has a separate gluten free menu. The gluten free bun at dinner is to die for. Beware this place is not cheap, but it is every good.

The wait staff is so helpful and acknowledge everything they drop off with the words "gluten free" to make you feel safe and comfortable with what you're eating. Very large gluten free menu and even give you gluten free bread!

The staff was extremely attentive and they offered me an entire gluten free menu when I asked. They made sure I knew my food was gluten free and even offered me gluten free bread when the rest of the table got theirs. I ordered the chicken panini, which wasn’t really a panini. It was a piece of chicken with prosciutto and cheese on top and a hot roll on the side. Not really what I was expecting and I was a little disappointed because I was so excited for my first gluten free panini. It tasted alright, mostly just like a chicken breast covered in cheese. The chef/waiters also gave me complimentary fingerling potatoes which were also good. A little disappointed, but I imagine if you ordered something else it would be great. Staff was really amazing. Mimosas and Bellinis were great too.

Really good! They can make almost everything gluten free. I tried two different pastas (they were able to do a half portion of each) & it was delicious!

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.

Amazing! I’ve been to another location and it’s been kept under my phone number that I have Celiac so they knew when i made the reservation. Separate gluten-free menu brought to me without my having to ask. Delicious gluten-free popovers brought to the table in their own basket (with a black napkin liner to indicate GF. Our server was very on top of our order. A manager brought my food to me, separately from the rest of the table. It was a great experience again!

The staff were knowledgeable about the separate gluten free menu. Many options to choose from including appetizers and desserts. The server was friendly and the service was outstanding. The prices are typical for an upscale restaurant. Policies in place to reduce risk of cross contact. Pizza cooked in same oven but separate area and utensils. My pizza was brought to the table separately from the other meals. I enjoyed the complimentary bread and the pizza was good. No ill effects from eating here and will definitely go back. As a sensitive celiac, I felt as safe as possible at a non dedicated restaurant.

Been to the Davio’s in Philadelphia several times and had great experiences so had to try their first West Coast location in Irvine.

Had a three course meal that was delicious! Server was so attentive, checked with chef to answer any questions he was unsure about. Brought me fresh baked GF bread (black napkin in bread basket indicating GF while other bread baskets have white napkins) as soon as I asked for the GF menu.

Had a mixed green salad, appetizer course of their hand-made GF potato gnocchi and shrimp for main.

Manager or chef brought our all my dishes always with a black napkin and verified without me asking that was my GF dish. Wonderful experience and felt great after!

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.

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!!

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.

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!

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.

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!
