THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Da Vinci's Ristorante Restaurant Review

: In 1966, a recently married young couple, Lisa and Tony Vitiello, opened a small Italian restaurant and pizza parlor called Da Vinci's on the corner of Greenwich Avenue and East Elm Street, sharing the kitchen chores. As the business prospered, they expanded and turned it into a more proper establishment with an extensive menu, hired a staff, and eventually eliminated all but personal-size pizzas in-house, while continuing to make them for their take-out trade. Da Vinci's has a home-like atmosphere where many customers are known by name---their favorite dishes are remembered and how they like them prepared. It's kind of like those old Prince spaghetti commercials where everyone came home to mama's on Thursday nights, only in Greenwich, they head for Da Vinci's, many for what Lisa terms comfort foods, such as ravioli al pomodoro, manicotti Siciliana, macaroni al forno and spaghetti con polpette.
