This summer check out new seasonal offerings at Davio’s in Atlanta. The northern Italian steakhouse located at Phipps Plaza offers a variety of handmade pastas, steaks and seafood.
I recently had the chance to taste some of the new dishes as well as perennial favorites at a dinner with owner Steve DiFillippo.
The Hand-Rolled Potato Gnocchi is light and just the right texture, here served in a bolognese sauce. Pictured in the featured image at the top of the article is the standout Ricotta-Truffle Caramelle, candy-shaped pasta served with crackling mushrooms and fennel pollen in a butter sauce.
Over the course of the evening, Steve shared a history of the Italian restaurant which is now celebrating its 30th year.
In May 1985 Steve purchased a locally-owned restaurant on Newbury Street in Boston. He revamped the interior, menu and wine list, but kept the name — Davio’s.
Since then the original location has moved, and Davio’s has expanded — with three additional locations in Massachusetts, and one in Philadelphia, Manhattan and Atlanta. Look for Davio’s to head west next, with a restaurant being planned for Los Angeles.
Steve has also published a book, It’s All About the Guest. In it he shares engaging stories of how he became successful in the restaurant industry, along with 12 signature Davio’s recipes. Click here to purchase a signed copy.
Davio’s is open daily for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch.
