“Great Italian food --especially for Thailand!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

My daughter and her husband live in Chiang Rai and they took my husband and I to this restaurant. I had lasagna and it was as good as any I've had anywhere. The restaurant was pleasant and the service was courteous and prompt. I would recommend this restaurant to any visitor to Chiang Rai when they want a temporary change from the amazing Thai food served all over Chiang Rai.

“Horrible restaurant”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

I make it short: the pizza was probably the worst I have ever eaten in a restaurant: the only positive thing: the dough was crispy but that's what you get if you bake it in a wood stove. Tomato sauce was absolutely tasteless, the toppings were disgusting! We ordered pizza with Chorizo. I don't know what they think Chorizo is, but the sausage they put on the pizza was simply inedible. It tasted like rotten pig or something. And for this bad quality of food they charge crazy high prices! The service is attentive but not friendly at all. No, don't go here. If you want good pizza, go to Dell'Angelo. He's out of town but at least he knows how to do nice pizza and treat guests with a smile. Da Vinci has the advantage of its central location in Chiang Rai which is why people still drop in. Already sorry for them...

“absolutely dreadful..”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Ordered 2 pizzas here.. the "chorizo" was some form of cheap thai sausage.. tomato sauce had no flavour. Crust was flat and burned.. it was a really bad meal.

We conveyed this to manager who listened and said one moment please. She then his behind a pillar until we left. You couldn't write this stuff in a comedy movie.

Catch a taxi out to d'angellos on the mae sai road. Food is much much better.. even with taxi factored it will be cheaper.

Two crap pizzas and 2 cokes thb700!!! Total rip off!

“Great alternative for when you're tired of eating Thai food”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

It's not a cosy restaurant but the service was OK and the pizza's were delicious. They have a long list of imported Belgian, German... beers. The pizza's are baked on a wood stove. They are comparable to the ones you would get in Europe. The pizza picante is not spicy.

“Gone downhill badly”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Sits in the main tourist stretch in Chiang Rai and therefore get's money too easily. Last year, I remember the food was wonderful and I remembered the place fondly. I ordered the same dishes this year and they were not nearly as good. I suspect a missing Italian and a Thai replacement. The place was full, despite the menu prices being very high for Thailand.
The staff had the potential that almost all Thais have, but there was a lack of management and they failed to deliver a nice experience.
Very disappointed and I will never return.
