We are proud to serve delicious Authentic Italian staples and promote unique but authentic flavours of Tuscany.

    Staff were nice, maybe asked how we were, a bit too often to be honest. Upstairs was nice and quiet when we were in. Food was ok but one main had to be put back as it was too well done.

    Visited this restaurant purely on the basis we enjoyed it as a French Bistro years ago (another lifetime/owner) and thought as in the vicinity , why not? Excellent piece of "happenstance" as food excellent and the waitress was exceptional in "directing" choice! Superb "alternative" wine offered as our first choice was not available. Same with suggested upselling and everybody felt they had the "good/best choice". So glad we left room for desserts - SUEperb!!

    We have been to Da Vinci's a few times now, it's tucked away in cobblestoned Alford lane (beautiful in the summer with outdoor seating). The great service is what keeps us coming back, all the servers are really friendly and know everything about the menu so you can always ask what they would recommend and you won't be disappointed. It's quite small but it's a nice intimate place. I wouldn't say it's quiet (depends what time you go I suppose) but it's got great atmosphere and character and the chatter adds to it. Good level of background noise and liveliness, 5 stars all round.

    Went for valentines dinner & was not disappointed. Taken up stairs where we were the only dinners but soon filled up & the atmosphere was good and we were well attended to. Good menu with specials to chose from also. Food was lovely, plenty of flavour and portion sizes were decent. Overall very good experience and will be going back.

    The service was excellent couldn’t fault it. However the dish I ordered lacked something and my husbands dish had a very strong flavour he didn’t enjoy. My dessert was not as expected either. Therefore I don’t think I will hurry back.

    It is a quaint little italian in the back streets along a cobbled walkway. Lovely place to go for a date or intimate catch up with friends. The service was good but seemed like only one waitress working that night, we waited 25 mins for our first drink...that was the only floor. Food was fresh and presented well and a good wholesome authentic taste. I would def go again
