Nicola De Paula was inspired to open Da Vinci’s Ristorante & Pizzeria by his own mother’s passion for fine, fresh, hearty food, which he enjoyed throughout his childhood in Italy. Today, Da Vinci’s can be found in a beautiful listed building on the edge of Poole Quay. With unbeatable views of the water, a spacious and stylish interior and a menu of tempting Italian classics, this family-friendly restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed Mediterranean-style supper or to celebrate a special occasion with your nearest and dearest. Whether you’re stopping by for lunch or dinner, you can be sure of a warm welcome – the servers are renowned for their excellent hospitality. The majority of dishes are crafted with local ingredients and options range from creamy spaghetti carbonara and mouth-watering seafood risotto to luxurious beef Stroganoff and prime fillet of beef served in a rich red wine, mushroom, smoked bacon and brandy sauce. For pizza-lovers, there’s an impressive array of authentic Italian pizzas, all made with homemade sourdough. Choose from the likes of a spicy Calabrese, a delicious Hawaiian, or a tasty vegan pizza made with dairy-free mozzarella. If none of these tickle your fancy, fear not – the daily specials board offers an ever-changing selection of delicious Italian fare, including fresh fish dishes for a true taste of the Med.
