    The meals were amazing, there was 3 in our party and we were all very impressed. The staff were very friendly and attentive which very much helped to create a good atmosphere. We have visited before and will do so again when in the area.

    Friendly and attentive service Delicious and well presented food - good spiciness and originality eg the presentation of the tiramisu. Wonderful summer ambience on the edge of the Quay. Our guest, an Italian foodie, was genuinely delighted with everything. Thank you so much.

    Situated in a lovely spot in Poole quay! Food was very good, totally recommend the sea bass !! Lovely staff and one particular waiter was very good (blonde hair) .. although I can’t fault any of the staff and service. We were very happy and will be visiting again. We come from Cheltenham.

    This is the second time we have eaten at Da Vinci's in the last 2 months and it has become our new 'favourite'. Both times it has been to take my elderly mother out for a meal. The service is friendly and attentive and the food is delicious we will be eating there again soon!

    Tasty food, found it was a bit rushed when we went and there were free tables so not overly busy. Shame really, when you're spending £120 on food for 2 adults & 2 kids you want it to be at leisure!

    Well recommended Italian. Good menu choices,good service and great quayside location for outside dining. Ambient music was a little loud. Pizzas were good, but a little oily. We've had better. I would try other things if we went back another time. Menu is fairly pricey for a Poole restaurant. Would probably be good for a boozy celebration .
