Italian
The idea of Da Vinci Restaurant can be traced back tp 2014, when Elena proud owner and head chef , discovered Scotland for the first time, and decided to introduce some of the Tuscan gastronomic traditions to the cordial people of the stunning land. Since our opening night on September 2017, we have been learning and improving happily as a small independent business. We are proud to serve delicious Italian staples and promote unique but authentic flavours of Tuscany. From starter to dessert, including wine and liquors, our aim is to offer an experience that is closest to our native land.

Our slogan is "Love for good food".

Lovely, delicious tasting food in an intimate restaurant . Although really central it is situated in a pedestrian lane . A real gem in the city centre and Elena is a fabulous chef. Thanks for another memorable evening .

Delicious food. This is one of my favourite restaurants in aberdeen.
Good awareness of different food needs. Ie intolerances and veggie/vegan options.

I really appreciated the measures towards social distancing.
On entry to the restaurant, there were gel stations and clearly marked floors. Instead of using traditional menus, we were provided with a QR code to scan which took us to a webpage where we ordered and paid for our meal in advance. These measures reduced the contact with staff which reduces the risk to both staff and customers.

Highly recommend.

lovely friendly restaurant in the centre of the city , but situated in a quiet lane . Food was fantastic - slow cooked beef in red wine was delicious. My friends had never eaten here before and asked me to make a reservation for the following week - they loved the whole experience. Thank Elena and staff for another fantastic evening.

The food was absolutely delicious. The dishes felt authentic and homely. The restaurant itself is really cosy and relaxed. Great wine.

The staff couldn’t have been friendlier and made us feel so welcome and right at home.

Couldn’t recommend this place enough. We’ll definitely be back!

Going out for a meal at Da Vinci was a great experience from start to finish. The service was friendly, attentive yet not overbearing. The food was exceptional. It was well prepared and presented and the flavours were exquisite. I would not hesitate to come back for another meal and would certainly recommend Da Vinci to others.

It's a very pleasant and authentic environment, with excellent service. You almost feel you're in Italy for everything is so authentic and prepared with so much care and passion! If there was one thing I could improve though would be to add more seafood options in the menu.

Good food, decent choice, nice ambience, pleasant staff although service was on the slow side. Be aware of the lack of parking options in the area. I parked at a street off the Great Western Road about 10 minute walk.

Absolutely appalled with this place and I would never recommend it to anyone to order something and then for it not to come with your meal and only be told at that point we don’t have it in stock and when I said that’s unacceptable I should have been given the option to change my order or get a substitute for it to have the waitress laugh in my face and say well I was just told is bang out of order. They couldn’t give me any suitable to swap as I didn’t like any of the other options.

Then this other other woman came to take the payment and going into my face with a clear attitude asking is everything aright, clearly knowing the problem so I explained the problem and she goes it ain’t part of the meal so what’s the problem. I said it’s on your menu I ordered it so therefore it became part of my meal which I ordered. So wasn’t getting the point of it and I said I was disappointed in their service and won’t be back to the reply I got was oh well everyone else likes it. Totally dumbfounded. Over priced and they under deliver.

Hi Anonymous, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry for the trouble caused by the absence of Peppercorn Sauce with your steak. I can assure you, it was never our intention to make fun of you, our waitress was just surprised by your plain aversion since she was just a mediator. 'This other woman' is the owner of our restaurant and she just apologized, we're sorry it wasn't enough for you. We'll try to be better for others, or in case you give us another chance. Grazie!

We had a meal for six of us. It was the first time we had been there and we were very pleased with everything. In particular I would mention that it was appreciated that the Chef/Patron came to ask us how our meal had been. More restaurants should do this!
One minor suggestion I would make would be that on entering the restaurant it would have been smoother had we had our coats taken from us before we were at our table. We will be back again/

My husband and I visited Da Vincis for q child free meal. Although the food we had was lovely and authentic the menu was quite small and we found the dishes quite bland and came out hungry. The service was warm but we were never offered more drinks or were missing cutlery for certain dishes. The food here is very expensive for the amount you are given. We are glad we tried Da Vincis as it is had a lovely wee atmosphere and felt very homely but we will unfortunately not be returning.
