The Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse concept is 100% the domain of Steve DiFillippo and his wife, with 11 restaurants emanating from its Boston homebase all the way to Texas. All provide an elegant setting for a Northern Italian menu. Prime steaks and house-made pasta are key to the success of the King of Prussia location, where the massive contemporary building sits among a variety of other KOP Town Center restaurants.
The filets, short ribs and pork chops are standouts, with a diverse selection of seafood close behind. Favorites include the Atlantic salmon, George’s Bank Sea Scallops and the Chilean sea bass. Plenty of gluten-free options are available, and the signature “popovers” are a must. 200 Main St., King of Prussia, (610) 337-4810, davios.com/kop.
