Description: The Da Vinci plunges you into the heart of Divonne-les-Bains. The terrace extends along the central square and you take full advantage of this special area. Ideally located in South-East, the first ray of sun is for you! The kitchen at Da Vinci is a wide variety to offer each type of its favorite food, uncompromising: entries but entry-fish are offered a la carte for your pleasure and the chef will make even the entry The Da Vinci if you ask him to surprise you! Then, pastas and risottos and meat and fish served with vegetables of the day are a great choice that will make your time at a moment of Da Vinci tasting and relaxing and memorable. The Da Vinci.

“An authentic Italian Restaurant with average food”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

An authentic Italian restaurant ideally located in this beautiful town. Excellent service by Italian waiters. May be its our hard luck, the food was very average to the margins of insipid the day we had our lunch over there. A much travelled guest of us left half the food away as it was not so appealing to him. When you pay reasonably well, the expectation is that the food would be hot, appealing and tasty , not so average and tasteless! Food comes first and then comes the service.

“Overpriced, indifferent service.”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

while I reckon that many restaurants in Divonne-les-Bains bank on being generally overpriced, this one really seems to have perfected that art: most main courses are somewhere near 20 euros. For that amount of money, you get a small portion of paste which is mostly void of inspiration. Basically, you end up feeding yourself with the bread...Service completely indifferent. Don't go.

Plus: * excellent food, the pasta is unbelievable, can't top it anywhere around here
* price range is quite reasonable for the qualitiy of the food
* beautiful terrace in the summer
Minus: * very lound seating inside the restaurant

“Very rude head-waiter and super slow service”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

After visiting the Divonne Sunday market we sat ourselves down at the inviting terrace of Da Vinci. It took up to 20 minutes to get the attention of a waiter. When we finally could order our drinks and still were thinking about ordering some light snacks, we were very rudly told that Da Vinci was a 'restaurant' and if we didn't immediatly order full courses, we would not be served. Basically saying, leave the terrace... Exeptionally rude service leaving a totally unhospitable memory of this restaurant. C'est la ton qui fait la musique! Management should address the grummpy and honestly very aggressive attitude of the head waiter.
