    Having booked a table online for 630 pm on Saturday 27 April we arrived on time. Service was fine and food okay, but slow to bring out the main course. We wanted a dessert and asked the waitress for a menu, at the same time ordering another prosecco and glass of wine, which we were served with However, the menu was not forthcoming, so we asked another member of staff for one. We requested the bill, which we paid and were sitting chatting when at 8.05 pm the waitress approached us and said she needed the table 'now' - my wife had not even finished her drink! We were somewhat taken aback as no one had said to us when we came in that there was a 'time limit' on the table and nor had there been any indication when we booked online! My wife finished her drink and we left, but there was no member of staff in the restaurant to ask why no one had said there was a time limit on the table. In fact, there were other customers, who were in situ when we arrived and were still there when we left! We put in a complaint through 'Opentable' when we got home, but have not yet had a reply, more than a week later. Perhaps someone can explain to us why we were treated so shabbily. Until then, we won't be returning and nor will we recommend Da Vinci to anyone else.

    This is a very friendly restaurant with a nice atmosphere and good music. It was cosy with a roaring log burning stove. Menu and wine list choice was very good with authentic Italian dishes and wines. We would definitely return on our next visit to the city.

    Staff were nice, maybe asked how we were, a bit too often to be honest. Upstairs was nice and quiet when we were in. Food was ok but one main had to be put back as it was too well done.

    Visited this restaurant purely on the basis we enjoyed it as a French Bistro years ago (another lifetime/owner) and thought as in the vicinity , why not? Excellent piece of "happenstance" as food excellent and the waitress was exceptional in "directing" choice! Superb "alternative" wine offered as our first choice was not available. Same with suggested upselling and everybody felt they had the "good/best choice". So glad we left room for desserts - SUEperb!!

    We have been to Da Vinci's a few times now, it's tucked away in cobblestoned Alford lane (beautiful in the summer with outdoor seating). The great service is what keeps us coming back, all the servers are really friendly and know everything about the menu so you can always ask what they would recommend and you won't be disappointed. It's quite small but it's a nice intimate place. I wouldn't say it's quiet (depends what time you go I suppose) but it's got great atmosphere and character and the chatter adds to it. Good level of background noise and liveliness, 5 stars all round.

    Went for valentines dinner & was not disappointed. Taken up stairs where we were the only dinners but soon filled up & the atmosphere was good and we were well attended to. Good menu with specials to chose from also. Food was lovely, plenty of flavour and portion sizes were decent. Overall very good experience and will be going back.

    The service was excellent couldn’t fault it. However the dish I ordered lacked something and my husbands dish had a very strong flavour he didn’t enjoy. My dessert was not as expected either. Therefore I don’t think I will hurry back.

    It is a quaint little italian in the back streets along a cobbled walkway. Lovely place to go for a date or intimate catch up with friends. The service was good but seemed like only one waitress working that night, we waited 25 mins for our first drink...that was the only floor. Food was fresh and presented well and a good wholesome authentic taste. I would def go again
