I visited this restaurant on a Tuesday evening with my partner, we were greeted by a friendly female waitress who immediately took our drinks order. Service was a nice pace and we didn't feel rushed. I ordered the Caprese Salad starters and the Spaghetti Puttanesca and my partner had calamari and Gnocci Da Vinci. All the food was very tasty... More

Family friendly, good food at fair prices. Service was very good. Would suit a large family get together more than a romantic meal for two!

Shame that I expected Italian food similar to the home of great food, Italy. I think this like many restaurants gets away with the quality because as a nation we do not have the same standards as the hosts, Italians. Service good, very friendly and accommodating, not bad price but food average.

Four of us visited Da Vinci's on Saturday 3rd January for my husbands birthday. As usual everything was first class but I thought I would write a new review in order to tell everyone about a new dish that has been added to the menu 'The Full Monty' – not sure about the title, makes me think of a Full...

We went for dinner at Da Vincis on Sunday night for my Husband's Birthday. He fancied some nice, authentic Italian food and we found this place online. The restaurant was lovely; quite unique with pictures and Italian decoration on the walls. As soon as we walked in, we were given a warm welcome by the staff who seated us at... More

Consistently Deliciuos food with great service. We celebrated our engagement, had our wedding reception here, celebrated our first anniversary and the birth of our baby and the staff make you feel like you're one of the family. Charming staff and good service, it has become one of our favourite places to eat in Dorset, if not our favourite. We recently... More

Had spaghetti with seafood here and disappointed that the sphagetti was overlooked. The sauce was bland, seafood dry as if been frozen for too long.

We went to this restaurant as it is one of the few we have never been to in Poole. Started with bruscetta(bang average) followed by seafood linguine(good) and Dover Sole(ok) Our teenage boys had pizza which neither enjoyed(very doughy) and desert was creme brulee(not cooked and liquidy) and profiteroles(disgusting- covered in some sickly chocolate mess) Wine was ok.
