Great service for a large group of 28 diners. Vincenzo looked after us all evening and had all the meals out in very close proximity. Great atmosphere overlooking the quay, with our own area upstairs. Would recommend this restaurant for authentic Italian cuisine, the Gnocchi Da Vinci was a great house special.

We arrived at 9.45pm and were given a great welcome and fabulous service despite the late hour. This restaurant is not a chain and although I am a fan of Pizza Express and , Da Vinci's shows why you have to do the real thing from time to time. You really can taste and enjoy the benefits. I really had... More

Due to it location on Poole Harbour there is a lot of fish on this restaurants menu, but as vegetarian their was still plenty of fish and meat free dishes to savour. Pizza's are fabulous as is the pasta. I have eaten here day and evening and never been disappointed. Staff are very friendly and great with families and children.

Good food, good service , interesting menu and specials BUT they add a 10% service charge to the bill which effectively takes away your discretion as to how much tip to leave. They also charge extra for veg to go with the main meals apart from serving a side dish of fried potatoes with everything.

Food was good service a little lacking. Not informed about special menu, soup was a little cold. Mains were good however. Just think they need to pay more attention to detail on the service said but overall OK

Looking forward to this meal but the good food was marred by the lack of interest, smiles and general good service. I came away feeling that I had inconvenienced the staff by entering their establishment. Won't be returning. If ever the owner reads these posts... a smile from a waiter is 20% the experience. Very disappointed.

Well patronised Italian restaurant looking out over the estuary in Poole. A good range of traditional dishes always well cooked. Staff friendly and keen to help.
