Description: The Da Vinci plunges you into the heart of Divonne-les-Bains. The terrace extends along the central square and you take full advantage of this special area. Ideally located in South-East, the first ray of sun is for you! The kitchen at Da Vinci is a wide variety to offer each type of its favorite food, uncompromising: entries but entry-fish are offered a la carte for your pleasure and the chef will make even the entry The Da Vinci if you ask him to surprise you! Then, pastas and risottos and meat and fish served with vegetables of the day are a great choice that will make your time at a moment of Da Vinci tasting and relaxing and memorable. The Da Vinci.

“A happy surprise in Divonne-les-Bains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

In another review I will refer to the general decline into glory of the past of the town of Divonne. But there is good news: we discovered restaurant Da Vinci, and consider it, after tonight's meal, as one of the best Italian restaurants in the Geneva area. Our request for three pastas to share between four was well understood. In no time, three dishes of spaghetti vongole, gnocchi frutti de mare and tagliatelle bolognese were steaming hot at the centre of our table, with the waiters coming by regularly to serve us on our plates. Not only steaming hot, the sauces were excellent and the pasta al dente. Good open red wine, cold tap water and continuous attention accompanied the main course. Dessert was another feast - excellent ice creams, great chocolat fondant and delicious poire williamine. ALl this, together with two aperol spritz's as apéro for €124. Meanwhile, it had started to rain, and the waiter kindly offered to take us back to the Grand hotel in his own car. The end of a nice evening in Divonne.

“A bit expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Divonne-les-bains is an expensive town, no doubt about that. At Da Vinci, you must order wine, because that's in a normal price range. Beer is astoundingly expensive.
At Da Vinci they find you a table, no problem. They serve very quick, what makes me wonder how fresh everything is prepared, but I'm can't really judge. The pasta of my BF was too al dente. My dish, the most expensive pasta, was not bad, but not very great either.
I would go again, but that is because the town has not a lot of other places to offer that aren't kebab or something.

“needs more attention”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

I have visited this restaurant twice. and I liked the pizza most. Generally, most of their dishes have a good presentation but, lacking in the taste. The service need to consider the different types of visitors and tourists since I experienced a communication difficulty with very polite waiters.
