We have been patrons going on 30 years. The service is great, the surroundings are spotless and the food is quite good. I personally love the broiled scrod with a side of pasta. The hubby prefers his scrod breaded, but loves it just the same. On occasion we will indulge in the Davitino Parm, which has also been a favorite... More

Davitino's is a family run place that has a lot going for it as far as the recipes and the kindness we always feel when we talk to the owner. The name came from the combining of Dave and Tina, the owners. Sadly Dave has passed but Tina is soldiering on. We took a visiting U.S. Marine to have dinner... More

This is the second time I went to Davitino's on Mentor Ave. next to the License Bureau with my mom. She likes to go there, because it's close to her home and never a wait. And there's very good reason why there is no wait: the food is mediocre to terrible and the staff there are just plain rude--and on... More

Have been eating herefor years. The food is extremely consistent and portions are generous. The service is timely but some of the staff are not very friendly.

Davitinos is a nice family business. We've eaten there quite a bit, and I have never had a bad meal from them. We like their pasta dishes the most... I love their eggplant parmigiana and also their linguini with clam sauce. They have the best lasagna in town. Food quality is consistent. If you want a good italian dinner like... More

Calamari far to overdone. Veal and chicken cutlets too thin and very dry. Sauce accompanying was rather mediocre. Been there at least 10 times thinking it would get better. It does not. Done with this place.

My job gets me behind the scenes of many local restaurants. I already knew the food and service were great here but after visiting their kitchen I can give Davitinos my best recommendation. The kitchen is spotless. The best I have seen in visiting the kitchens of over 120 local restaurants. I eat here with total confidence being somewhat of... More
