Visited this restaurant as a guest of one of our suppliers.. Our host was disappointed and rather embarrassed as it was his choice to eat here.. The Service was devoid of personality and unwelcoming ... My Calamari starter was not tasty at all and I have tasted better shop bought (Frozen) versions ..I struggled to separate my cannelloni main course... More

On the positive side we had very good service and the menu looked varied and interesting. We ate on Sunday and wonder if it was the chef's day off as almost nothing matched the menu description and the quality of food we expected. Whitebait was clumped together and under cooked and doughy in places, "field mushrooms" seemed to be fairly... More

We ate here during a holiday in Poole. Unfortunately we chose a night when people had obviously arrived early as not long after we arrived, the spacious restaurant emptied bar one table so the atmosphere was lacking. The waitress was very friendly. The food was delicious. Will definitely revisit next time we are staying in the area.

Amazing food, amazing service - one of the best Italians I have been to and I've been to a lot! When we return to Poole we will be back.

We'd passed this restaurant on out first night in Poole and it looked nice and busy - so thought it must be great. Really, we were disappointed. Nice welcome and smart restaurant (though you could not cram another table in!). We were positive that it seemed authentic Italian. But when the food arrived - it lacked any real flavour. My...

Went in the evening with two young children for my wife's birthday. We booked for seven but were running late and called to advise. Was fully booked but this was no problem. As requested the Chef selected our starters to share as we were unsure what to order. Perfect. Main courses were all well received. Noted that some reviewers stated... More

Our group advised the manager that one guest had a nut allergy and a second guest had a severe nut and seed allergy. We checked that every course was nut and seed free was. The manager said yes and the chef had been informed. As the waiters brought food to the table, we checked again. We were advised and this... More

Dear Cazzaws, I’m writing to you to stay a big sorry for what happened on your day at Da Vinci’s. The young waiter was not aware that Baked Alaska have pistachio flavoured ice-cream. We are aware that nut allergy can be life threatening and again I’m really sorry that this happened due to lack of ingredients knowledge, of the young... More

Visited here again for lunch. The food was excellent, very tasty and well presented. The service was superb, polite and professional. Only small criticism was looking at other photos of the tagliatelle and seafood, we only had one king prawn (as opposed to two). That small issue aside, it was very tasty and we look forward to visiting again soon.

I took my daughter and son in law for a meal, we had a great table looking out onto the harbour, the waiters were polite, nothing was too much trouble even though they were busy, the food was excellent, and good portions too, I cannot remember ever going somewhere where all of us loved the food. Saving space for the... More
