One of several Italian restaurants in or around Ocean Road in South Shields, Da Vinci has to be among the best. The traditional, cosy restaurant is very atmospheric and tables are situated well - close enough to each other to give an intimate feel but not too close that you feel your conversation can be overheard by other diners.

7 of us chose this restaurant by the smell of the food, and the happy music before we even went inside. The staff were friendly, helpful, and gorgeous. The menu was varied, tasty and very reasonably priced. There was a good selection of wine and for less than £20 a head we had a fabulous 3 course meal with drinks.

Having never eaten with this restaurant before, I thought it best to look on here for feedback... I was not expecting great things after reading a review from atu93 below...I ordered through the restaurant as opposed to just eat and could not have wished for a better service. The food came very quickly! I was expecting to wait at least... More

Have ordered from here before but this time I decided to order online using just eat instead of ringing us as normal. They have a special on which offers a free pasta dish with orders over... More

After serving frozen meatballs, the waiter offered to heat them up for me. I refused and asked to choose another dish. I got another pasta dish - no cutlery! Had to ask twice for Parmesan cheese. Finished my drink but never asked by staff if I would like another one. The restaurant was busy and the staff certainly looked after... More

This is a family run restaurant. Although the owners are not Italian themselves, the food may be said to be quite close to Italian cuisine. The prawn salad and the lasagne were particularly good and so was the wine on offer. It also has a romantic ambience and when I was there the music of Laura Pausini was being played.... More

Good, basic Italian food. Specials available at decent prices. Pleasant staff. Background music can be a little loud sometimes - otherwise fine.

My hubby & I popped into Da Vinci after 9pm one Sunday evening & were warmly welcomed. Given the time, there were only a couple of other tables in & they soon finished leaving only us in the restaurant, but in spite of this the atmosphere was still lovely due to the cosiness of the restaurant & the apt music....
