Editorial review from Urbanspoon 2/3/2012

My wife, cousin and mom went there for dinner. We have dined there several times before. We all thought the food was good, and we do like the atmosphere; We were not happy with the service. Considering the restauarant had only four or five tables filled, the service was unbelieveably slow. While the staff was friendly enough our server was just not attentive to our needs. There are plenty of other fine Italian restaurants in the area that will take my money and provide much better service. I'll have to think twice before I return. more

Caffe Dai Vinci, in Bal Harbor, on our 20th Wedding Anniversary Oct. '11, Chef/Owner Erik works hard to prepare molecular gastronomic dishes that impart layers of flavor with the added benefit of healthy eating. Filet Mignon and Lasagna were absolutely delicious. \r Clean and cozy atmosphere, bathroom was very clean, as reported by my wife who is particular about these things stated, "clean bathroom, clean kitchen". The staff was cooperative and attentive. Highly recommended! more

Far away from Italian 3/6/2010

I cannot believe where all the good reviews come from! Starting with the wine list (you can get most of the bottles at Publix), following with the bread (nothing to do with Italian bread) and finishing with the food ( a big joke), the whole experience is painful to the wallet and to my rights as a customer. The server had absolutely no idea about any of the wines. Not only he did not know the difference between a Chianti and a Rosso di Montalcino, but he did not know a single name of a bottle of wine. When he was asked about wine he came around the table to stare at the wine list I was holding and tried to read the name of a wine to then say it was a ""great wine"". He insisted on serving the ""best Italian food in town"" but when asked about different items of the menu, he did not know how to explain any of them. When asked about the ""spices"" on the mussels, he replied saying it had pepper and olive oil spices. Imagine. The mussels were completely dried out, overcooked, old and with no flavor. The shells were breaking apart of how old and reheated they were. The ""lighted breaded veal della madonna"" was not veal but palomilla steak, tripled breaded, dried, with penne pasta that not only was not al dente but it also had some tomato sauce that tasted like can tomato sauce. They forgot the salad that was supposed to come on top. When we mentioned it, they came back with it, but it had such a strong rosemary flavor that was inedible. This has been by far the worse experience in Miami. I have lived here for 4 years, tried hundreds of restaurants, tried many restaurants in NYC, LA, Chicago, San Francisco and being from Europe, many many restaurants in Italy, France, Spain and even Greece. This restaurant is a joke and I am ashamed I went there with my partner and gave it a try, wasting our time and money. Do yourself a favor, go to Fratelli Milano, Cantina 27 or Fratelli la Bufala, and you will find and love authentic and real Italian food, just like the one you can have in Italy. Cons: Everything more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 1/16/2010

What a great restaurant!! It's in a nice neighborhood. The entire staff is friendly and attentive, they really make you feel like you're part of the family. The food is excellent - we had the veal chop and the baby rack of lamb - highly recommend both. Generous sized portions, and you can't beat the prices. The wine list is very extending at reasonable price. I'm so glad I found this place!! more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 9/4/2009

the manager is the most unprofessional person in the world. he added 18% gratuity to our check and then when we asked that he remove it from our check because that isn't right, he threatened that he was going to call the police. We told him to go right ahead, we weren't going anywhere until he removed the gratuity. Then he said that Ragazzi and Carpaccio added gratuity to their checks as well which is a lie because we go to both those places and they've never done that before. The wine I had was nasty, the food I had was cold. the manager never asked for our opinion on anything. The place was empty, now I know why. I'm never stepping foot in this restaurant again!!! more

IN THIS PLACE IS ALL ABOUT YOU. 5/7/2008

THEY TRIED TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE YOU FEEL AT HOME. BEST VEAL CHOP!. EXCELLENT SERVICE. CHANGES, SUBSTITUTIONS, HALF ORDERS, EVERYTHING GOES. Pros: NON Cons: ROMANTIC, GREAT GRILLED ITEMS. more

OUR FIRST DATE.....3 YEARS AGO 8/13/2007

THIS IS OUR 3RD. ANNIVERSARY. WE MET AT DAVINCI'S 3 YEARS AGO. WE LOVE THEIR CHEF'S SPECIALS AND THE ROMANTIC DECOR. Pros: VERY ROMANTIC-VERY GOOD SERVICE. more

LIKE AT HOME! 1/11/2007

OUR FIRST TIME WAS A VERY GOOD EXPERIENCE. THE PLACE WAS PACKED BUT THE MAITRE'D\r SAID THAT HE WILL TAKE CARE OF US........AND HE DID. WE RECEIVED A COMP.GLASS OF WINE ( THE BAR WAS TO FULL TO GET A DRINK) AND WHEN WE SEATED , BRUSCCHETAS AND A DELICIOUS PASTA. THESE GUYS ARE PROS. WE WILL COME BACK. Pros: VERY ACCOMODATING. more

Bad Italian! 9/18/2006

We have decided to try Da Vinci, after all, it has been there for all these years. Overall the food was bad and way too expensive, the portions were small (we are not big people), and unexciting. There are better values elsewhere. We will not go back to Da Vinci and we do not recommend it. For years we have been sampling many Bal Harbor area restaurants and don't mind paying a high price, but in this case, it's not at all justified. Two thumbs down. Cons: food ambiance more

Pricey neighborhood restaurant 8/21/2006

Went there last night, quite charming looking if a bit tired decor. The service was attentive but overall our night out ended up disappointment. The bruchetta appetizer was good, but the ordered -and recommended- whole wheat pasta was though and the crab ravioli bland, the sauces tasted like they were overcooked and the drinks were way too strong and unbalanced. They were accomodating to our own wine -good considering the marked prices and selection- but they lacked proper glasses. In all we don't plan to go back. Cons: food ambiance more

QUITE FRANKLY...VERY DISAPPOINTING DA VINCI 8/15/2006

AFTER SO MUCH HAS BEEN WRITTEN HERE, ONE MAY WONDER IF THE OWNER HAS MANY FRIENDS WRITING FOR HIM....THE FOOD WAS MEDIOCRE, SPECIALLY THE COMMERCIAL GRADE NOT HOMEMADE- PASTAS, THE SERVICE WAS ATTENTIVE, BUT STILL LESS THAN IDEAL, AND IT WAS VERY PRICEY.\r I SPENT $175 IN DINNER FOR TWO, MUCH MORE THAN A NEIGHBORHOOD LITTLE RESTAURANT WITHOUT AN EXCITING LOCATION OR DECOR MIGHT CHARGE.\r AND LASTLY, THEIR WINE LIST IS HORRIBLE! I CAN DEAL WITH WINE MARKUPS, SOME OUTRAGEOUS, AS LONG AS IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S WORTH IT. BUT LITERALLY, THERE WAS A WINE THAT I BUY FOR $9 THAT WAS ON THE MENU FOR $50!!! AT LEAST IF THEY OFFERED HARD TO FIND OR OBSCURE WINES THAT WERE THAT MARKED UP I MIGHT'VE THOUGHT ABOUT ORDERING, BUT THESE PRICES WERE OBSCENE! Pros: EASY LOCATION Cons: FOOD WINE LIST SETTING more
