This is the first time I have been in this resteraunt under its new ownership. The starter was nice, but a small portion. The pizza was absolutely tasteless and the base was soggy. The sweet course was okay, but nothing exiting. The decor has changed and it is much lighter, however I feel they have taken away the authentic atmosphere... More

Fancied a pizza. Not a frequent visitor here but sufficient to realise that it was much poorer than before, when food was very good. Nice atmosphere though quiet being a Tuesday after Easter break. Waiter forgot our drinks. No big deal. When pizzas arrived they looked like Tesco bases with prairie toppings( wide open spaces) Nothing wrong with tesco goods... More

Congratulations to Max and the team at Davinci's. After many years Davinci's has had a little make over and it really is lovely. The new brighter atmosphere is so refreshing and nice to see some new (and very tasty) additions to the menu along with the firm favourites. My family and I have gone to this restaurant for many years... More

This was my second visit in a month, with two different groups of people. Unfortunately, neither occasion was particularly positive and generally for the same reason. I had hopes that the food would be exceptional given the length of years this place has been open but at best I can only say that it was relatively bland and not exciting.... More

As it suggests my wife and I went for a meal on Valentines Night. Once again we were not disappointed the service is superb, friendly efficient and quick. The food is excellent we had the Lobster Ravioli which was delicious. Excellent pasta well seasoned and cooked beautifully. Our favourite Italian restaurant can't recommend it enough

Stopped in for lunch during a tour of Brasov. The food was excellent - fresh pizza that was tasty and hot. Just what we wanted! The house wine in the carafe was good too!
