Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Found this place by accident today for lunch. Had a great welcome as we entered. We both had spaghetti dishes. Lovely warm plates. Food was plentiful and fresh tasting. Well worth another visit.

“Good food and lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Felt welcomed as soon as you walk in. Waiting staff are attentive and informed on the menu choices. We did ask for something off menu that was dealt with professionally.
T-Bone steak was cooked perfectly and you just feel a good relaxed atmosphere while you are in there. A little pricey, but worth it on this visit

We ate here Saturday lunchtime and wondered why the resteraunt was so empty. When the bill came we realised why. To be fair the food tasted good but at those prices I would not eat here again.

“Best for birthdays!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I have been reading a few of the more negative reviews of this restaurant and am shocked at some of the comments! I've been visiting da Vinci's for many many years and will confidently say that you will not get better Italian food anywhere in Poole! The atmosphere is always friendly and amusing and the owner a true gentle men! Always goes out of his way to make his customers feel valued and makes sure they have a lovely evening! If you visit for a birthday make sure you tell the staff as they make such an effort!! I am serenaded by the staff for my birthday every year! Over all this place is amazing! 10 out of 10! Please don't be put off by the grumps who just enjoy moaning!! Looking forward to visiting again soon xx

“Stumbled across a Gem”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Fantastic atmosphere with live music, great attentive service and most importantly, lovely food. If you're staying near Poole and are wondering where to eat; look no further than Da Vinci's. They have successfully brought the taste of Italy to England and are very welcoming and accommodating of couples, family's and large groups. The pizza I had was the best I'd ever had, even compared with those I'd eaten in Italy.
