There are a few Davio’s locations now, but the original one is on the second floor of a converted bank in Center City, and it’s basically like if a fancy Italian restaurant ate a kitschy, themed steakhouse. Everything about it, from the white tablecloths to the servers in black and white tuxes, makes it seem like a fine dining spot, except then you realize that they do things like chicken parm egg rolls, a full children’s menu, and take out. But that just makes it all the more endearing.
