Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were looking for a place to have lunch and rest a bit and found this place inside shopping mall - beautiful interior, friendly staff and very good food. Do try potatoes with pesto and some pasta, great coffee

The atmosphere was nice (bookworms gotta love cafes in a bookstore, right?) and so was the service. But the food was absolutely terrible! I really love goat cheese and beet salad, so I order it often. I love onion, but in this salad? Oh-no-no-no! Also...the ciabatta under the cheese was burnt. Not into pasta and pizza and if the salad is bad, won't be going back probably.More

Had a little break in Da Vinci cafe and we loved it. The view is good, pistachio ice-cream just amazing and the freshly pressed juice a good vitamine bomb.

An average taste, tried 2 different pizzas and pasta. Pizza was a bit on the dry side and the pasta was drowned in too much sauce. Service was polite, but lacked friendliness. Some tables are really small, so try your luck to get the 4...larger tables by the window.More

That`s awesome smart restaurant. Everything is easy. At first order and flash the card they give you ,later pay. Much room and basil on table is great.

First off, I am not in any way a confrontational person, so if the food is bad, I will still eat it,not say anything bad to the staff, pay the bill and walk out. This time I was actually considering asking about the quality of...the food because it was not good. The whole thing started on an offnote, our table still had stuff from previous customers on it and they took their time taking it away. About the food though, my partner had a pasta dish that was lacking in quality overall and I had the veal steak with a side of roasted beets with herbs. Veal steak was said to be "smoked", none of that was evident in that piece of overcooked tough piece of dry slab. Beets were roasted, unseasoned and thrown on the plate with some undressed greens, and the beets were also dry somehow. Veal steak was served with a piece of mozzarella cut on top too, unseasoned and cold, why would you put cold effin cheese on a piece of steak??? The whole thing did not make sense at all. Poor food, and below average service. The saving grace was the tiramisu which was a generous portion and tasted nice. All in all, do not recommend.More

Had a really good lunch there. Pasta's choice is great! The place is nice and service friendly. But they should consider hiring more waitresses. The one who was working the day we visited didn' t seem to have any time to rest for a second.

So as usual. We were looking for some place to eat and were thinking that we have walked past Da Vinci a lot of times. So was time to visit it. Entrance was little bit suspicious. But we were leaded to table fast and got...menus instantly. The waitress was really happy and joyful. She did not have name tag so I cant give more credit to her. But she was really awesome. So we ordered 2 oven pastas with mushrooms and italian ham. Tasted really good and as well looked amazing. Will visit this place again for sure. Ty for that opportunity. Will visit again! :)More

As located in Tasku department store, I would recommend booking a table if you wish to have a window view instead of a view to escalators. I love the bread they serve and the herb-butter mixture along with it. Pizza was in my opinion too...crisp so it hurt the gums when eating, but I still go back for the oven baked pastas.More

If you visit Tartu, go and have a meal in Da Vinci! Friendly service, combined with pleasant atmosphere. We had a business lunch there with 9 people. Everybody loved their dish. Although we waited around 45min to get our meals from kitchen, it was still...worth it. I strongly recommend this place!More

Total no-go in Tartu. Bad food, very bad service, takes too much time - and for all that too expensive. Ei soovita. Pool osa laudadest olid "reserveeritud" - kuid 1,5 tunni jooksul ei tulnud ükski klient, kes oli lauad kinni pantud. Restoran oli enamvähem tühi,...pitsa kohaletoimetamine vöttis aga umbes 40 minutid. Ühe pitsa trühvlikaste maitses kergelt kibe ja kandis hallitatud juustu kõrvalmaitset, öhtul valusa kõhulahtisusega sain selgeks, et tõenäoliselt kraam ei olnud enam eriti värske. Mis seletab ka fakti, miks see maitse nii "omapärane" oli (ja see polnud esimene trühvlikaste minu elus). Kui küsisin teenindaja käest, kuidas tellitud eelrooga lood, sain ebaviisaka tooniga selgeks tehtud "seda ma toon peale pitsat" - noh tase missugune. Magustoiduks julgesime jäätist tahta, mida nägime naabrilaual ilusti pokaalides. Menüüt meile enam ei lubanud, pidime letis jäätist valida. Vist saavad jäätist ainult üksikud valitud kliendid pokaalis, meie pidime vahliga restoranis istuda. Hinnatase ei ole kvaliteediga (ega teenindusega) tasakaalus - toit pole piisavalt kvaliteetne (süsimust pitsapöhi). Tänu teenindaja ebasõbraliku suhtumise ning kilpkonna-kiirust saime 1,5 pisikese menüüga ühele poole. Kunagi vöiks teenindava personalile sõna "vabandust" õpetada. Et ta naerataks oleks liig mis liig, sest niikuinii ei teeninda kliente eriti viisakalt. Absoluutne no-go Tartus. Ei soovita.More

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this restaurant, since it is in a shopping mall. We had an excellent soup (beetroot cream soup with goat cheese foam and parmesan chips) and a delicious salad (warm salad with quinoa, spinach and slightly smoked trout)....The loose-leaf mint tea was also very good. Our server was friendly and helpful and happy to converse in English.More
