Location and contact

Da Vinci's Italian restaurant is located in an old warehouse, right on the bustling quay. Da Vinci's Restaurant is open for lunch and dinner every day. With picturesque views of Poole Harbour's glistening waters, antique charm and a friendly welcome from your Italian hosts, there will be no need to go all the way to Italy to enjoy such hospitality and beauty. Relaxing and comfortable from the moment you step inside, Da Vinci's cosy downstairs dining room provides the perfect environment for a casual lunch or dinner. We are family friendly and allow dogs in the bar. Our upstairs dinning room is an ideal place for a more formal dinner. The menu ranges from freshly cooked pasta and hand made pizzas

Our service was especially poor and the food was average although one dish was excellent, we all wished we had ordered the same - Seafood pasta. May be worth shopping around there are a lot of Italians to chose from

A quick way of getting across Poole harbour saving a long road trip. Not much of a cue out of season but there can be biggish cues in the summer

We'd never been to Poole before so for a while were defeated by the parking ( lack of) till we encountered the multi storey. That was fine. Da Vinci's is on the Quay, with the sea and boats outside the windows. We were made welcome...More

Da Vinci's is reliably really good. I can recommend the Italian Tricolore, delicious, and my colleague had lasagne. We had cheese and bicuits to follow, a good and generous plate. My favourite dining venue on Poole Quay.

We were very happy with our choice to try this Italian restaurant... great location by the water and pleasant atmosphere... meals were delicious but little bit on the greasy side... my favorite was the super spicy Alfredo pasta and seafood linguini...
