THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Davio's Restaurant Review: The Providence outpost of the popular Boston restaurant, Davios relies on the same formula for success: Accessible Italian food with well-placed twists. The crowd is fashionable, the mood fun and subtly romantic. Appetizers include a pretty fan of seared duck breast with warm fig compote and pomegranate glace, fried calamari with a jalapeño aïoli, and several grilled pizzas. Main courses are austere and boldly flavored. Beef tenderloin is napped with truffle butter and flanked by a scallion potato cake. Salmon is encased in herbs, cuddling up to polenta, and swimming in sun-dried tomato sauce. Dont miss the many salads: The kitchen works wonders with basic vegetables like peppers, onions, and lettuces.
