Lovely!

Started with a really delicious prosecco cocktail, beautiful scallop starters. I had scallop and prawn linguine, with a touch of fresh chili - superb! Others enjoyed carbonara. Friendly staff who were lovely with the noisy 1 year old in our party. Really enjoyed the meal, thank you!

This is truly a great Italian restaurant with friendly & attentive staff! The decor is magnificent & the food to die for. I had the fresh sardines, followed by the prawn linguine, washed down with an aperol spritz. Well done to Vicenzo from Calabria.

We booked for Mother's Day and I had not been to Da Vinci's for a number of years and was not sure what it would now be like. We needn't have worried as the menu choice was excellent and the garlic bread for our starter was not only presented beautifully, but was the best garlic bread we had ever tasted.... More

Booked table for evening meal with group of eight friends but had a disappointing experience. We had to ask for menus & then call staff to take our order.
