I am not a huge eater, but I had the clams/mussels appetizer. WOW. The sauce was just amazing and addicting. I tasted the different pastas, very good. The dinner was reasonably priced and for a table of 9, with lots of wine... yes, lots of very good Oregon Pinot Noir... I was pleasantly surprised.

This downtown icon has atmosphere but the menu needs a redo. My Caesar salad was a Costco head of romaine lettuce sitting on a plate like a green bullet shaped silo with dressing & anchovies on the side. Had I known I was going to have to cut up & toss my own salad I would have stayed home. The... More

We love the ambiance and food here. Many times we go for the early bird menu and have a variety of appetizers and split them. Always delicious and delightful.

Atmosphere was amazing in this older building. They have done a great job with the decor and creating an Italian ambience. The server and bus boy were very polite. First bus boy I have ever encounter that apologized for interrupting our conversation (usually they just jump in the conversation). They had a great wine selection but their food selection is...

First, waitress Tamra was great. Thank you for great service, remembering our daughters bday, and adding a nice relaxed demeanor to our last evening with our Willamette student . Second, all the food was fantastic. We started with complimentary flatbread- yummy. Added sautéed calamari, Prisoner cab/Syrah, coconut seafood curry dish (the best, I thought), Hangar steak, Orcchiette beef (13 yr... More

A Fabulous Peach appetizer would have been her highlight of the meal but the Shrimp was great also. The hanger steak my associate had was said to be equally great. I would recommend this place to EVERYBODY.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner on a very busy Monday night. We were seated upstairs where we we entertained with quite a show. The servers, Jessica, Ronnie and Zach were a fabulous trio, attending to every detail, personable and knowledgeable about the menu. Excellent wine list, fresh tuna and interesting salads. We closed down the place!!!!!

I ate at Davinci with friends. None of us lived in/near Salem, and we picked this restaurant via Google. What a find! The most savory and bright flavors I've had, since I don't know when. Their kitchen uses very fresh ingredients, and blends them perfectly. The chef is an artist. Great prices, good service, great location, good wine list. Give... More

We love this restaurant. The atmosphere and especially the food, is first class. Great date night, birthday, anniversary, or any other special occasion, this is the place to go. The owner is passionate about his food and it shows. Great food and service.

What a awesome place. The food is great the wait staff is fantastic and they have a wonderful piano player. The prices are on high side but the food is worth it. I had the braised beef oh my gosh it was great. The restaurant was a beautiful place. You must try this place if you are in town.
