“Great restaurant !!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We visited Da Vincis tonight with our 3 children. So refreshing to be in a restaurant that is relaxed towards the young children whilst providing great service and even better food! Genuine Italian staff and food, definitely a must visit if you're in Poole. Looking forward to going back again and enjoying the wonderful atmosphere.

“Best Italian around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

myself and my girlfriend are very regular in Da Vinci's,
This place has the best atmosphere ever! We were there last night for a birthday, and they gave us a real Italian birthday sing and cake!! Just an incredible place. Also we receive a very warm welcome from Vinny who recognises us which is lovely, he's such a nice guy and we will be returning very soon! If you don't go then your definatly missing out.

Curtis and Katie!

“Excellent Proper Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We've been to this place several times and have enjoyed every visit. The calzone Ripeni is excellent, as is the Sugo di Carne. My wife has had the Linguine/Scallops/Prawns several times and always excellent - this time she had the Lobster Ravioli which was a little too undercooked with the pasta being too hard......dealt with most professionally by Vincenzo and so whilst a shame, shows the place knows how to deal with problems the right way. Da Vinci's will remain a firm favourite of ours on our next visit to Poole.

“Yummy Vinci ;)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

If you are looking for a nice place with authentic Italian cuisine, relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff, that would be a place to visit.
I have recently spent lovely evening with my friends at Da Vinci’s. I was amazed with selection of cold and hot starters, followed by the most delicious main course and accomplished by proper home-made dessert.
A good half of the chef dishes (especially starters) I was trying for the first time in my life ;) I didn't even know they exist (what a shame) ;)
So please do not hesitate and ask staff for an advice.
When you finish your dinner you can have a nice walk along the beautiful quay or take a boat trip to Studland sand beach.

“This is a 'really' good Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We have just recently come back from a weekend in Bournemouth staying in a hotel that makes Fawlty Towers look brilliant. It was so bad we had to look for somewhere tidy to eat on a Saturday night and ended up in Poole and similarly at Da Vincis in The Quay in Poole.
We turned up without a table booking but were still able to be seated in the restaurant.

All I can say is, if you are in the are, go there. It is one of those places where the owner takes an interest in his guests and makes everyone welcome. The food was excellent and well presented. Also the prices were not unreasonable.

It is a shame that e live so far away otherwise we would have considered this restaurant on our list of regular haunts. It is well worth looking out for.
