“Decent pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Quite nice pizza to be that far away from Italy. I would recommend to choose one without too many ingredients of toppings, as they tended to be a bit "overloaded. I.e one which was listed to have garlic (among other things), had several garlic cloves nicely sliced
Selection of wines, and a good choice of beer from many countries
Nice complimentary grissini.
Service could have been better - a lot of people at work, however they did not see to keep an eye on the guests
With a good location this is a very nice break when you are tired of Thai and chinese food......

“Average food, terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Da Vinci has an excellent location in the heart of the city. Unfortunately the food is relataively average, nothing outstanding and the service is terrible. We ordered apetizers and main courses but the appetizers were brought with the main course and somehow they tried to fit everything on the small table so there was no room at all. I am surprised that they would not know that soup and salad is to be enjoyed before the main course.

At no time did any staff return to refill wine or beer glasses. Having to take the wine bottle out of the ice bucket and poor your own wine sort of defeats the purpose of having service staff.

We were never asked for desert or coffee and I had to go and get the menu to look for desert. The food was not outstanding in anyway. The salad was not tasty, the vegetarian pizza was boring and the salmon was very small with 2 little veggies on the plate - not very good value.

The ambiance is nothing special. You can choose to sit outside and smell exhaust fumes or inside but it is noisy. There is an air conditioned section in the back.

We will not return.

“Great Location with Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Delicious italian food in the middle of Chiang Rai. The food isn't 5 stars, but it is fairly priced for its quality and the service is great. Fresh tomato and basil pizza was amazing!

“Surprisingly good thin crust pizza.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We ate here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the pizza. Above average for Southeast Asia, with good toppings an a nice, thin crispy crust.

“Don't order the vegetarian pizza!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Second time at Davinci; first time was quite good, but our order was simple. This time, ugh! The bread-stale, the red wine-vinegary, but worse by far, the pizza tropicale-not spicy (like the menu suggested) and quite frankly rank smelling. Eat here at your own risk!
