In 1996, the Carvelli family opened the Marco Island DaVinci’s. It was a very small restaurant with only ten tables, but it slowly gained a strong reputation for the quality of its food and personalized service. Soon they had 150 seats, a liquor license, and eventually expanded to a beautiful restaurant with a wood–burning oven for the best pizza in town.
We are definitely missing some of our favorite culinary hangouts with COVID-19, but fear not, your favorite restaurant is still vibrant and offering Takeout and Delivery.
For our Saturday evening takeout, we ordered the following for dinner from DaVinci’s.
Tagliatelle Carbonara, with white cream sauce, pancetta and Parmigiano—a classic ribbon pasta shaped like fettuccine with bacon bits giving it a rich and tasty flavor. The portion was more than enough for two people.
Linguine Alle Vongole with Florida Middleneck Clams, garlic, oil and white sauce—you can have light tomato sauce. In this classic pasta dish, linguine is tossed with clams, lots of garlic slices, white wine—simple but incredibly flavorful. Few dishes give you that “seaside” feeling as Linguine Alle Vongole. DaVinci’s Chef does this Italian classic proper justice and it’s a comforting—yet elegant—dish. And since we cannot physically experience the ocean, the freshness and a few bites into the Florida middleneck clams takes us there.
Rollatini di Melanzana—thinly sliced eggplant dish with ricotta, mozzarella and light marinara sauce. This was under appetizer, but the portion is good enough for light dinner. Dinners also came with a complimentary side salad and with bread and butter.
We paired our DaVinci takeout with a bottle from our own collection of 2013 Domaine Carneros Brut Sparkling Wine.
