    Great food , friendly and helpful staff. GF food was no problem at all. GF pasta cooked separately so no cross contamination and the GF pizza was the best one I’ve eaten in 15 years.

    A lovely charming Italian restaurant on Poole quay with alfresco dining, the menu has some different dishes to offer compared to the usual Italian restaurants, the food was excellent, some great memorabilia hanging on the walls and around the restaurant, a little more pricy than the usual but worth it,you pay for what you get,would highly recommend to anyone dining in the area.

    Service was very sloppy. We arrived and sat at out table for 15 minutes before anyone offered us even a menu or a drink - and the restaurant was quiet. I would have walked out if I wasn't meeting a friend. Food was fine. Calamari was great. The seafood risotto was a bit of a mess. The dessert offerings are pretty poor. Later they cranked the music up too loud and it was annoying. Overall - you can do much better.

    Another fabulous meal. Of the ten plates our party ordered, nothing went back to the kitchen - the plates were almost licked clean the food was so good! Excellent service and attention to detail, too. Two of our party wear hearing aids and on mentioning this we were tucked into the front corner and the music was kept a bit lower. Exceptional food and exceptional service, which to be fair is all we've ever experienced at Da Vincis. We will be back, again and again!

    The restaurant was lovely and cosy and we were seated at the back of the restaurant. We were constantly asked if our food was OK and if they get us anything else. The food was really tasty, although my friend did have a seafood dish and the prawn wasn’t cooked properly. Even though it was a Saturday night and the restaurant was busy, the food arrived in good time and hot.

    We were welcomed in a warm, friendly manner, which continued throughout our evening visit. The staff were all most courteous, attentive & fun. The food was so delicious: fillet steak pasta for mains and the creamy cheesecake was to die for! Excellent wine to accompany it all too. My husband’s complimentary comment is usually “quite nice” but this evening it was was replaced with a raving “Wow!” We shall definitely be returning on a regular basis. Thank you to Nicola, Christianno & James. We shall get to know the rest of the staff in due course.

    As usual a lovely meal, served by friendly staff. It can be a bit on the expensive side but for us, as a treat, worth the money. It would appear that our open table booking hadn’t gone through which caused a little delay before we were finally seated. As they were extremely busy all staff dealt with this very well.

    Our table was right in line of draft from the front door opening, which it did regularly throughout our visit, with people just standing there propping it open as there isn't enough room for them to come and stand inside. We were also in the main 'walk way' and my friend mentioned that she was getting fed up of people putting their hand on the back of her chair. It was great to see the place as buzzing as it was, but was very noisy, so not ideal if you are trying to have a catch up with a friend you haven't seen for a while as you couldn't hear them. Think I'd avoid bank holidays if I go again.

    Da Vinci's Italian Restaurant & PizzeriaResponded on 15 June 2022

    We do get extremely busy on holidays so we recommend avoiding these times if you are looking for a quiet meal. Many thanks for your comments.
