About
The name “Carvelli” means “dear” and “beautiful” in its Latin roots. The Carvelli family brings this ideal into their restaurants through their excellence in hospitality and quality of food. The family cherished their childhood memories from Mesoraca, Italy when family and friends would gather for a meal and enjoy each other’s company. Brothers Luigi, Sal and Francesco Carvelli, with their cousins Adamo and Francesco Serravalle, opened their first restaurant, DaVinci’s, on Marco Island in 1996 with the dream of designing a restaurant for other families to come together and create memories of their own. Due to the support of the community and maintaining a high level of service and excellence,

We had a party of six (4 adults, 2 children) and dined on the patio in front of the restaurant. I had the mahi with coconut rice and asparagus. It was prepared perfectly. The other members of our party also had a positive experience. The...servers were attentive and friendly. We have eaten at the Oyster Society several times, and we plan to return. If you are driving, parking can be a challenge, but with patience, you can find a spot in the surrounding parking lots.More

Visited here while staying at JW Marco Island Marriott. Easy walk from hotel. Indoor servers were friendly and fabulous. Huge seafood selection. We had Seabass, Grouper, Oysters, Daily catch, Caesar salad (cold and yummy), nice bottle house white wine. Greeters seemed a bit stressed, so...first impression was just ok, but we ended up with an awesome table inside, so thank you for that. Bonus: the air temp was perfect, since I'm usually freezing indoors. Super clean as well Keep up the good work!More

The service could not have been better . This is a touristy restaurant located in mini mall across from the Hilton adjacent to other restaurants . I am an oyster lover and could not believe the disappointing oyster experience we had. The chef selection oysters...were served with 5 “sauces”that have no business being anywhere near an oyster .The oysters themselves were below par and and nothing to write home about. Our dinner selections were adequate . A very disappointing dinnerMore

Come here as often as you can during your Marco Island stay. We ate here three times lol. Two Happy Hours, which were over the top, and one Sunset Dinner. The fish selection and preparation was superb! The happy hours drinks are the best we’ve...had. Everything we sampled was truly outstanding. The oysters, gulf shrimp, fish tacos, calamari, ahi, grouper etc etc - try it all and try it often!More

Awesome food/dining experience! This was complimented by outstanding service provided by Victoria and Milos. Victoria guided us with great menu suggestions from appetizers to main course. Hands down best seafood on Marco Island. We can’t wait to go back!

Food was excellent! They have many choices and everyone was happy with what they ordered. We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our son's birthday at The Oyster Society.

Our meal was excellent and the atmosphere was fun and enjoyable. Our waiter Milos recommended an excellent tuna dish and was very fun to talk to. Overall a great experience.

With Tropical Storm Elsa banging on our doors, our daughter and granddaughter were visiting. They wanted something special and we were able to get reservations at one of our most favorite spots on the Island, The Oyster Society. Inside the restaurant you would never know...their were gale force winds and pounding rain outside. The atmosphere was almost party like, as always. We were seated at the exact time of our reservation and our server was Richele who made our experience even that much more enjoyable. It was the right choice! The appetizers were elegant and our entrees were like out of a magazine advertisement. Taste, the amount of food and the cocktails were second to none. Whenever we want to show off the elegance in dining on our Island we always choose the Oyster Society. We will certainly be back.More
