Good food, nice service, we always visit when we are in poole. Good pizza, the pasta dishes are large and the house wine really drinkable.

It all started with absolutely filthy plates laid out for first course. Still remnants of the last meal on them and they were greasy. It went downhill from there. The antipasti starter was bland. The steak wasn't fit to feed a dog. Full iof fat and gristle. The dessert was the only saving grace. Not impressed one iota.

Called on spec with no booking on a Friday evening earlyish and there was plenty of tables. Very pleasant genuine Italian waiter took our order and within ten minutes our food turned up. Which I thought was pretty good. I had veal which was good but sadly only midway between warm and hot though the sauté potatoes were red hot.... More

Having called an impromptu board meeting, our 6 members needed somewhere to eat and a last minute booking for an evening meal at this restaurant exceeded our expectations. The staff took ownership and recommended Tapas to start... Well, I challenge anyone to not enjoy this, it was great fun to eat as a group and excellently cooked, it set the... More

I took friends for a celebratory/business lunch which should have been a really special and unique occasion. Having ordered dry white wine by the glass (because of driving) 2 very acidic glasses appeared which we had to send back. This was replaced with Sauvignon Blanc which was ok and chilled but had been opened too long - should have been... More

I've been eating here for decades and the food and service are always good. Good Italian food that isn't just pizza and pasta. cosy atmosphere and helpful service. I've eaten with a partner, family and friends and Da Vinci's is always suitable for all events.
