DaVinci's of Boca, a new family-owned Italian restaurant and lounge located at Town Center at Boca Raton, will be celebrating its official ribbon cutting on Wednesday, November 5.
The event will kick-off at 5:30 p.m., a celebration of the new establishment owned by Luigi Carvelli and Francesco Serravalle -- Boca Raton residents who immigrated from the small Calabrian town of Mesoraca, Italy.
Open for lunch and dinner, the menu features classic preparations and modern variations of Italian food and drink by chefs Francesco Carvelli and Chris DeGenova. Building on the reputation for fresh ingredients and hospitality the Carvelli family earned at their original Marco Island location, DaVinci's of Boca offers dishes like Burrata Caprese, a dish that features prosciutto, baby arugula, and a homemade bacon tomato jam; Wagyu Beef Carpaccio; and Polipo Grigliato al Salmoriglio, a grilled salmon and chilled octopus salad.
A 60-foot bar extending around to the outdoor lounge offers wines, craft beer, and cocktails. Red and white wines chosen from the 3,000 bottle cellar are $5 to $7 by the glass, including a Lambrusco from Emilia Romagna for $5, and Deep Sea cabernet for $7. Guests can also take advantage of a special promotion that offers 25 percent off over 95 bottles of wine priced under $100. Specialty drinks are priced at $7, including the GM margarita with Grand Marnier foam.
A happy hour extends from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (and again from 9 p.m. to close) with $4-7 food and drink specials daily. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼DaVinci's of Boca is located at 6000 Glades Road, Boca Raton. Visit davinciofboca.com, or call 561-362-8466.
