Steve DiFillippo is the consummate restaurateur.  With  his award-winning Davio’s brand firmly established in Boston and Philadelphia, DiFillippo has tackled a modern Italian restaurant in addition to a new venture in the city of Superbowls: Foxborough, Massachusetts.  DiFillippo’s reach continues to expand as his locations continue to garner critical acclaim and destination status. 

After graduating from Boston University in 1982, Steve DiFillippo, owner of Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse (Boston, Foxborough and Philadelphia) and Avila, Modern Mediterranean Restaurant (Boston), attended The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts to pursue his dream of becoming a chef. During his college years, DiFillippo worked his way up the ladder at SeaSide, a popular bar and restaurant located in Boston’s Faneuil Hall. DiFillippo worked from the bottom up serving in all positions available and finally assumed the executive chef position once he graduated from culinary school. 

In 1985, at the early age of 24, DiFillippo purchased his first restaurant: an existing spot named Davio’s.  It would be here that DiFillippo would brand the name of Davio’s as synonymous with quality.  Located at the up and coming end of Newbury Street in Boston’s trendy Back Bay, the original Davio’s was opened in 1977 as a family-owned Italian restaurant with local charm.  As Boston’s culinary tastes began to develop and become more refined, DiFillippo transformed the location into fine dining destination.  DiFillippo retooled the menu, the space, the wine list—injecting many reincarnations of his mother’s recipes into the menu.  The new Davio’s garnered rave reviews for being “innovative, creative and bold.” 

DiFillippo is actively involved in many groups and boards including: Rodman Ride for Kids; The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts; Raising-a-Reader of Massachusetts and The Boston Dining Alliance. In the fall of 2008 DiFillippo was inducted into the Massachusetts Restaurant Hall of Fame. He is a contributing Vice Chair of the Board of Overseers of the Anti-Defamation League, New England Region. DiFillippo is currently hosting a food and dining feature for Style Boston on WCVB - Channel 5.

DiFillippo lives in Wenham, MA with his wife Pamela and their four children.
