Da Vinci's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria Poole


I would like to thank Hope FM and all the staff at Da Vincis in Poole for the amazing meal we had. Having won a voucher with your radio station for a meal we went not knowing what to expect. The food was excellent, the service second to none and the whole experience one to remember. I can recommend Da Vincis to anyone wanting a meal to remember. Thanks again. Mike

Being a pizza lover I thought I would give them a try, the guy answered the phone told me he’s Italian so I had high expectations. I ordered a pizza and a bottle of coke, it arrived after 45 mins which was fine. Their pizza is the best I have eaten in a long time, you can actually taste the fresh ingredients and reminded me of my days on holiday. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who loves pizza’s.

Born in Calabria in Italy to a large family of four brothers, Nicola De Paula learnt from an early age the importance of food and has brought this love, enthusiasm and passion to Da Vinci’s.

“Food has always been at the heart of my family and my mother was the finest cook you could meet. She would shop in local markets, buying the best quality regional food to cook for her family. Meal times were typically Italian with a plentiful supply of local, seasonal dishes all served up among the noise and chaos of children! At Da Vinci’s we apply the same values of quality and freshness for our diners to enjoy.”

Nicola left Italy in 1984 and came to catering college in Bournemouth. He then spent several years as a Maitre D on busy cruise liners, before returning to Poole to open Da Vinci’s Pizzeria in 1993. Since first seeing the historic buildings on the Quay front, which reminded him of his town in Italy, Nicola had dreamed of opening a restaurant in Poole. His natural flair as a host, coupled with his love and passion for food has guaranteed Da Vinci’s continued position as one of the most popular restaurants on Poole Quay.

In early 2006, he took over the Warehouse Restaurant above his own pizzeria, filled it with stunning Italian furniture and an extra dining room seating up to 90 people was added to Da Vinci’s.

Nicola’s vision for Da Vinci’s is gaining its own reputation among discerning diners and becoming a favourite location for private functions in Poole.
