“Valentines Evening Meal”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This was our first visit to Da Vinici's and on phoning up to make the reservation I found the gentleman very polite and enthusiastic when talking me through the set menu for Valentines Evening.
Having been to many Italian restaurants in the area I was keen to compare them to Da Vinci's which I had been told by a few friends was the best in Coventry. We were not disappointed at all, the staff were friendly and very attentive and the food was brilliant. The Steak was cooked perfectly and my partner also enjoyed the lamb. The sharing pudding at the end was the icing on the cake as it were and we then just about had room for a coffee and amaretto biscuits.
The restaurant was crowded that night but did not feel claustrophobic in anyway and we were not hurried in any way to vacate the table after our meal.
Overall this is a lovely restaurant for special occasions and even though the prices are not cheap I felt it was worth it based on the quality of the food.
We will return.

“Not what it used to be?”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We've been to Da Vincis several times and could never fault it - we went again for our wedding anniversary and left a little disappointed. The food is generally great, fish starters were fantastic, I had steak as the main and it was one of the best steaks I've ever had; my husband's duck was less than impressive though. What bothered us the most was the Fawlty Towers style service - we were given the wrong starters at first, the vegetables we ordered were missing and some unidentifiable veg was soggy and horrible. They have lots of staff which were basically falling over each other making for a shambolic atmosphere. We had booked a secluded table as it was a special occasion but were given a very unimpressive table being far too close to other diners. Although we knew it was expensive, it was too expensive for the latest experience we had there. Not sure we'll be back and if we do, it won't be for some time.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

The calamari was tough and on explaining this to the waiter the response given was that this is how it's cooked. The steak was extremely fatty and chewy and was blue when asked for med rare! The service was average although the serving space at each table is very cramped. Such a disappointment :-( would have had a better experience at pizza express.

Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

Had a table for 4. Food excellent we all had differant specials which were akl excellent seafood. Lovely starters. We sat near the window which was chilly unfortunately but this was the only fault. We all loved the food and good banter with the owner. Dont be put off by the dated decor.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Went here to eat with my family & the food was superb. We weren't rushed at any time or hassled if we were enjoying our food. I would recommend DaVinci's to anybody for a good night out.
