Il Davide Restaurant Review

: A colorful Italian countryside mural adds cheer to this elegant restaurant. Chef-owner David Haydon is known for his handmade ravioli, truffled leek tarts with sweet crusts and other imaginative fare. Try the luscious burrata platter with fig jam, flavorful fried calamari with spicy garlic aïoli, fettuccine frutti di mare or pollo al mattone (chicken charbroiled under a hot brick). If osso buco is on the menu, you must get it. The tiramisu is better than average, as is the dark chocolate cake. Small flights of reasonably priced wines are available to sample with dinner; there’s also a full bar.
