If you want authentic italian food, this is the place to go if you're in Poole. Many restaurants sell themselves as serving true Italian cooking, none come anywhere near this place for authenticity.

Very friendly staff and good food, they are particularly good at celebrating your birthday, but take your ear plugs, it can get noisy! Brilliant!

We had a table upstairs by the window. There was a guy on keyboards & vocals with a girl playing the saxophone for entertainment &... More

Last night was our first visit to this restaurant and I think it will be the last. My wife and I and two friends went, chose our food and drinks and the starters arrived, although three came and the fourth followed a couple of minutes later. The ladies had mussels which were fine, the delayed starter was chilli prawns and... More

We went to Da Vinci's last night (Saturday) and had reserved a table. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner who said he would have a lovely table upstairs by the window. At the time we were thankful for this as downstairs was extremely busy and noisy. Hardly anyone was upstairs which changed within 30 minutes or so.... More

We went on a hen night here last night! There was 35 of us at a cost of £25 per head which I was more than happy to pay but oh my! What a complete and utter shambles and a very rude owner/manager. Out of our whole party there was one special which they managed to get wrong, this wasn't... More

Service was quite slow but they were very busy, the food was lovely but when I ordered a glass of wine was told they only did large glasses @ £8.00 per glass!! Also £3.50 for a large coke is a complete joke.

A large group of us had booked at Da Vinci's for the £25 set menu. On the whole the food was a disappointment but the service was shocking.... A friend had pre-ordered a vegetarian pizza but when she started eating it she realised it had meat all over it! When she complained they offered her another, to which she agreed... More
