The wine list and the drinks are top. Understanding what northern Italian steakhouse means it is harder to me. The place is very crowded and noisy. The tables layout was not helping the service. It looked like an Hotel ballroom during the 70'. Not much room left in between forcing service folks to go around other tables to get the other. Plus I did not like the dessert kart going through the left space and touching clothes hanged on the chairs. Excluding 200$ for the wine I do not thing the food is worth 100$/pax. We were 5 people and all confused about what the offer is in the end......
Happy to change my and my friends mind anytime.

Thank Diodoro C

Had a business Christmas party here and the service was really mixed we went through two bottles of wine waiting for our food. The server also wasn’t knowledgeable about the wine menu, even took 15 minutes to get our bottle of wine. Server had trouble uncorking and ended up dripped wine on the table. I say this isn’t real Italian because they don’t have antipasti or espresso corretto. I would say that it’s more of an American stake house with an American Italian twist.

I come here at least three times a month because my office is close by. I was here on Friday for dinner with another couple who lives close by and goes here once a week. We made the mistake of sitting int he bar area. A couple of the regulars were drunk and obnoxious. They were yelling, swearing, whistling, and leaning on our chairs. Management had no control. At least twenty people around us were disturbed by these individuals. It was obvious that these guys were regulars and were over served. We were there from 5 pm to 7 pm. If I ever see this again there will be a call to ABC. Management should know better.

We had a wonderful dinner at the Lynnfield location, which included impeccable service. We never once had to ask for anything as we had three servers helping us all night. Plus the food was dynamite as expected. Keep up the great work, and we will be back soon.

We have always enjoyed Davios in Boston and love Davios brunch in Lynnfield. Tonight was very surprising. The waitstaff was awful. They are so poorly trained it’s hard to believe they have received any formal in-house training. While we were eating the popovers our waiter decided to remove the butter. Dishes were removed without asking if we were finished. Food was delivered to the table so quickly it was hard to believe any of it was cooked to order.
The food itself was meh. The Kobe beef meatballs contain pork. Don’t call them beef. They could have been called salt. The gnocchi was delicious. Nothing else was. The restaurants at Lynnfield Market Place are a huge disappointment.
