Davio's Atlanta: Enchanting Ambience with First Class Service

Ricotta Lemon Basil Ravioli
The idea behind Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse is simple: Regional Italian foods where everything is made by hand. Davio's patrons can dine on everything from aged steaks to simple pasta creations.  In 1985, Steve DiFillippo purchased a locally-owned restaurant called Davio's on Newbury Street in Boston's trendy Back Bay.  Since then, Steve has opened six additional Davio's, including Davio's Atlanta located at Phipps Plaza in Buckhead.

We were invited to celebrate National Ravioli Day with Davio's on March 20th.  We dined on their amazing three-course menu: 

Ricotta Lemon Ravioli - Parmigiano, Blood Orange Beurre Blanc

Fresh Maine Lobster Ravioli - Basil Cream Sauce

Chocolate Ravioli - Raspberry Cream Filling
Davio's Atlanta

We were not sure what to expect from Davio's, as it was our first experience dining at the restaurant. Immediately, we observed the candlelit ambiance and the attention to detail of the dressed table. We were impressed with the staff that guided us through the Ravioli Experience for the evening, making us feel comfortable and treating us like family. 

GM, Claude Guillaume
As general manager of Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse, Claude Guillaume oversees all operations of the restaurant including the bar and private dining.  He has extensive experience in the hospitality industry and brings an abundance of fine dining expertise to the restaurant. Claude strives to make Davio’s a prominent dining destination for both neighborhood shoppers and Atlanta-area residents. “I want to give our guests a familiar face and a warm welcome every time they visit us,” says Guillaume.   “Our guests are the most important thing to us, and they should always feel that way,” he says.  

What is relevant to all diners is the level of service and quality of food. These two factors will keep us, Grapes and Hops Atlanta, coming back to any restaurant, including Davio's.  We hope you will take joy dining at Davio's just as much as we did!

We would like to thank Mandy Nicholas at Premiere Agency and the entire Davio's team for a wonderful event.

Bert's Big Adventure Month of Giving

On Wednesday, March 25th, 32 Atlanta-area Jersey Mike’s Subs locations will cap off a month-long “Month of Giving” campaign to benefit Bert’s Big Adventure with a community fundraising event: Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving.” The Atlanta-area Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants are inviting residents to come in and enjoy a delicious sub meal – 100% of the day’s sales will go to Bert’s Big Adventure. That means every single dollar that comes in on that day goes to the local charity! (Take-out and catering orders included.)

Bert’s Big Adventure is a nonprofit organization that provides a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World® for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. 

We would love your help in spreading the news about this wonderful cause!
