I was called to confirm our booking which was good as we were a table of 10 who booked same day! We received great service and food as always from the Da Vinci's team. We had a a really lovely evening. Super choice of Italian classics and always the fresh fish specials.

Excellent food and service - very friendly staff. We were a table of 7, including 2 children. The extensive menu catered for everyone in our party. It is perhaps a little more expensive than your average Italian restaurant but the extra cost is well worth it. The food was freshly prepared but still arrived very quickly. Portion sizes are very generous, both for main dishes and desserts. (We didn't order starters so can't comment on those). Highly recommend, and well worth a visit.

Extremely noisy, could not have a conversation due to noise from large party, nothing done to ask them to tone down. My starter was cold even though topped by melted cheese, don't know how they managed that. Some staff were very good but others could not speak English. My hubby had to ask three times for some bread before we got any as the waiter didn't understand. Overall not great, no water at table, at the prices charged I would expect better, I don't need a waiter to put my napkin on my lap, I do need one who sees the table is clean and correctly set with everything we need.

My two friends and I had a very enjoyable evening at Da Vinci's . There was a lively atmosphere in a comfortable environment. The food was extremely tasty and although it was busy the service was good.

Beautiful food, fantastic service and nice atmosphere. I had the specials for both starter and main and they were both delicious, well presented and good size, as were my Husband's choices. My only negative comment was the awful music, fast and repetitive almost dance music which made us leave the restaurant sooner than we might have normally as it was giving us a headache.

Great place, great atmosphere, great food. And proper Italian cuisine. It was a lovely evening thank you. Even at the end of the evening as closing time drew near we were told to relax and not rush our last drink. The way a restaurant should be run.
