Amazing food and service would definitely come again
Lovely food and very friendly and helpful staff. Took our 3 year old daughter and all the staff made a fuss of her and made her feel very special. Highly recommended
A wonderful atmosphere, great service & outstanding food.
Food and service, particularly from Christian, was simply amazing. Great find and would return when in the area.
The restaurant and food was cold. Not a great experience
Great food, great service. Excellent Italian hospitality, good value for money
The staff were rude when I visited the other day, and the food is way overpriced for what you get, along with the dessert tasting off.
We took my daughter out to say well done on exams and a few other things we had a lovely meal. Little problem with my started which was soon recktevied so no problem.food was excellent and the service outstanding we live locally and it’s not the first time we have been there and it definitely will not be the last.
Great service and food. Lovely settings. We ate on Sunday evening so were treated to live music from a busker who was excellent. The food was pricey but worth it.
We are glad that you enjoyed your evening with us and the music from Chris Payn. We often have him playing outside on a nice day :)
Good service, amazing food!
We return every time and couldn’t recommended enough!
Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are very happy that you continue to support us. Thank you!
Garlic bread was cold and hard, and came out very quickly.
The adults spaghetti Bolognese was the same size and the child’s so not a very big portion. Also a bit bland.
The staff were that friendly and didn’t ask if everything was ok with the food.
Very expensive for an unimpressive meal and experience
We are sorry that your meal was not to the standard that we expect and we will investigate what happened on the weekend that you visited. Thank you for telling us
Very disappointed in the quality of the food, even though the place has a lot of potential in terms of location and ambiance. The pasta was hopelessly overcooked, under salted and in need of real olive oil. Not authentically Italian I’m afraid.
We are really disappointed that you did not enjoy your meal when you visited us. We take pride in our dishes having learnt the best at home in Calabria. We will take a look at what went wrong on the night you visited and thank you for your review as we appreciate all feedback so that we can stay at the top.
Great atmosphere and considering how busy they were - service was swift and friendly
Great to hear you had a good time with us. Thank you!
Fantastic night, great meal in a fantastic location, staff were brilliant !
Thank you for your great review, we appreciate you taking the time to tell us.
Great restaurant serving good food. Service was a little slow between main and dessert but that was not a real issue for us. We really enjoyed our visit and would visit again.
They have been on top of their game for the last 27years and if possible get better each year the new generation of hosts appears to be aiming to continue Nicks standards and achievements. Long may they continue. John. Pendleton
Thank you John for your kind review. We really appreciate your support and glad we didn't disappoint you during your visit.
We dined at da Vinci about a year ago and found it to be really very good. So we decided to go again. We were delighted with all aspects, food, service, ambience etc
We will certainly go again.
Thank you so much for coming back we really appreciate it!
The place, the ambience, the staff, the cuisine, the wine…. Seven stars for all. Definitely my favourite in Poole
It seems like an eternity since we were last out enjoying ourselves at a restaurant and particularly indoors. Absolutely first class experience and one we intend to repeat.
Needed an outdoor heater
Absolutely fabulous food - the seafood was so fresh! Would highly recommend
Thank you for your kind review and we are glad you enjoyed our food.
Good table outdoors with excellent heaters and cover.
The food was well presented and good quality with great value wine.
Cristian our waiter was very attentive.
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant and we are glad that you enjoyed your visit to us
Al fresco dining by the harbour! Great staff, great atmosphere and lovely food! A little pricey once you’ve added drinks, but totally worth it!
Thank you for taking the time review our restaurant and we are glad to hear you enjoyed it
Outside dining due to Covid. The staff were really good, happy to move heaters and really quick service when it started to get cooler. As always the food was great!
Thank you for your suppport and we hope to see you again soon
Booked under the assumption would be on nice quay side seating. In reality was in a back alley which was very disappointing.
We are sorry that due to the popularity of the restaurant you were at the back of the restaurant. Please feel free to request a specific seat when you next visit although we cannot always guarantee it.
Fabulous new set up outside, very well organised. The food as ever was outstanding and the waiters were fabulous and friendly. Great job Da Vincis 👏
Thank you so much!
Absolutly outstanding. Excellent service and quality. Grazie mile.
Good service and nice people but expensive for what it is. Also could do with some patio heaters as dining outside is hit and miss with British weather.
Very enjoyable a friendly little bistro .great location on Poole quay .
Thank you for your lovely review and we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to us
Always a great meal and great service at Da Vinci's, have been going here for years and enjoyed it every time.
Thank you for your continued support, we are always happy to see you
Da Vinci's is a good traditional Italian restaurant and they are managing well with the Covid environment. It does now seem expensive for what it is, which it didn't pre covid, so I am guessing that they have put the prices up. The Calamari stood out as an excellent dish.
Thank you for your review. We have unfortunately had to pass some costs onto the customers where suppliers have increased their prices but on the whole our prices are about the same as pre-covid. Glad you enjoyed the Calamari :)
Upto the usual high standard despite the Covid restrictions.
Thank you for your great review!
Amazing food, lovely staff, can’t wait to go again!
Thank you, we can't wait to have you back :)
Amazing food, great service, love this restaurant
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant and we are grateful for your continued support.
We love going down to the Quay in Poole and this is one of our favourite places. Food very good and staff are wonderful.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate your support and look forward to your next visit to the Quay.
Despite having a booking, there was no table available even after waiting 30 min after our booking time.
We are sorry to hear this and we will investigate what went wrong. Unfortunately Covid restrictions mean that we cannot always maintain our high standards and it seems that this was the case on the night that you visited.
Authentic Italian food and drink served, efficient service, not the cheapest but you get what you pay for.
Thank you for your honest review. We appreciate it very much
Very nice meal at a good price, staff were very friendly
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant and we are happy to read that your visit was a success.
Had a lovely evening as a final "last supper" before lockdown. Pizza was delicious, thank you :)
We are grateful for your support and hope to see you again when this is all over !
Expensive for mediocre food and grumpy service. Wouldn't go back
We are disappointed to read this as this is not what our customers expect from us. We will take the time to examine what happened on the night you visited and thank you for bringing it to our attention.
