The problem I have is do I want everyone to know about Da Vinci's! You know how it is when you find somewhere you really like because it's SPECIAL for so many reasons. Do you tell or keep it your little secret? I think I will say very little. For those people who make the trip they can experience it... More

We were in the area and walked past the other restaurants in Poole. This one stood out as it looked very interesting and authentic Italian. Once inside we were not disappointed. It was a busy Saturday night and we were made very welcome. Our two little girls were treated like princesses and the setting is beautiful, overlooking the harbour. I... More

stumbled on this family run italian restaurant late one evening. We were asked to sit in the bar area for five minutes while a table was prepared for us - a busy restaurant is always a good sign! Excellent food, promptly delivered by polite staff. Be aware that english is obviously not their first language, so understanding of your requests... More

3 1/2 hrs from ordering to finishing, 7 times asked for water, 4 times asked for bread, wine was average. Steaks however the best out table of 12 have ever had. It's such a shame the waiting staff were so dreadful. The chef deserves a medal for his cooking. But unfortunately I doubt Id go back because the staff were... More

We visited Da Vinci's for an early evening meal. We were bowled over by the quality of the food. I had a fillet steak which was cooked to perfection - the best fillet steak I've ever had. My wife had tortellini which was divine, and my daughter had a great tasting bolognese pasta. The service was warm and friendly. I'd... More

Attentive staff but not over the top. Reasonably priced menu with lots to choose from & loads of fresh specials direct from the harbour. Music could do with updating but otherwise a very pleasant meal.

Fancy a travel to Italy but still stuck in Poole harbour? Da Vinci's Restaurant is the best place to taste the Italian atmosphere. Excellent real italian food and joyful staff. As a nostalgic Italian, I have to say that I felt at home while I was eating spaghetti. I would recommend!
