Always a warm welcome and prompt service. Staff seemed to cope well if quiet or busy. Great variety to pick from: Italian / british! Always tastes freshly made. Just ask if you prefer a different kind of Pasta with a dish: No Problem to change!! Typical background noise gets a little louder as it gets busier and everyone's Drink kicks... More

Italian takeaway makes a pleasant change from the usual Chinese, Indian, chip shop, burger bars and fast food outlets that are also available in Kilmarnock, I have had sit-in meals as well as takeaway from Cafe da Vinci and always really enjoyed it, I had the chicken Mardi Gras as a takeaway on Friday and it was absolutely delicious, the...

Used to visit this quaint restaurant when we lived a bit closer but hadn't been for ages so thought it would be nice to return again. The menu had a nice choice & me & my wife were both looking forward to the Italian cuisine. I ordered the goats cheese with stornoway black pudding. It was delicious & presentation was... More

Been here too many times to mention. Back tonight for my girlfriend's birthday dinner and again not disappointed. About time I got round to writing a review. The best Italian restaurant I've been to bar none. Me and the misses always compare every other Italian restaurant to da Vinci's. I doubt we will find better. The food is faultless, I... More

Great atmosphere, great staff the only thing that was a bit disappointing was the food. It was nice enough but have had nicer which was a shame. Had the chicken milanese and the tomato sauce was a bit bland.

We visited as a couple with friends and their children and didn't have a single complaint. For an Italian restaurant the menu is very extensive with a separate children's menu also. The food was as tasty as the menu made it sound...even the kids fish goujons. The wine list was almost perfect and the service was pretty much second to... More

Some of our party arrived 15 minutes early and even though it was a Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy they were able to give us a seat until our table was ready. The service was fantastic. We were a party of 8 and several staff brought our dishes out at the same time so no one was... More
