What a perfect spot! Food was magnificent and affordable. Our water (Ruben) was outstanding and anticipated all of our needs. A must stop

This is a very popular restaurant, so reservations are advised. Bright interior. Very limited menu. Off-spiced food. Irregular service. Having tried this restaurant twice, we don't plan on returning.

You may be able to drop in for lunch, but dinner is a full house. Food is Italian and excellent. The place is a bit small and the happy talk does get up there. But, it is worth it.

When I went to Il Davide a couple of years ago, I thought their food was fine, but not exceptional, especially for the Bay Area, where we have so many excellent restaurants. But my last two visits show that they have improved significantly - every...More
