Da Vinci’s Table has been serving Italian food and some American specialties – such as burgers – in Burlington, North Carolina since 2010. It features a nice outdoor dining area as well as an inside dining room that has the classic feel of an older Italian restaurant.
Most nice Italian restaurants will provide their patrons with bread and oil to begin their meal, but da Vinci’s Table takes it to another level by serving garlic knots at the beginning of meals at no additional charge. I enjoyed the garlic knots, and they were certainly a nice treat beyond the standard bread and oil.
Da Vinci’s Table has some specialty pizzas, and you can also create your own on their thin or deep dish crust. I ordered the Leonardo’s Sicilian Special which is described as “da Vinci’s own special recipe deep dish with lots of sausage and pepperoni, smothered with extra cheese.” As a fatty from the Midwest, I would argue that this pizza is more of a pan pizza as opposed to a true deep dish, but I still liked the light pan crust that had an airy crunch on the edges. The sausage and pepperoni were good, and the pepperoni specifically had a nice spice to it. I wouldn’t describe the pizza as having been smothered with extra cheese, but, again, that may be because of my fatty Midwest roots. All things considered, da Vinci’s Table is really good option for Italian in Burlington, and I consider it to be a pretty good option for pizza.
