Review on Da Vinci
Da Vinci is a delightful traditional Italian restaurant set on the cobbled streets of Yarm High Street, overlooking the little Dutch style Town Hall built in 1710 by Viscount Fauconberg, who was Lord of the Manor of Yarm. The restaurant welcomes diners in a warm and rustic setting, walls are adorned with old wooden wine barrels and artwork and there's a view of the hustle and bustle of the open kitchen.
A bastion of traditional Italian cooking using good quality ingredients the menu features tempting pastas, risottos, as well as freshly made pizzas and other local favourites. Kick off with scallops pan seared in chorizo infused oil with cauliflower, caramelised broccoli and balsamic strawberries or choose their antipasta of finely sliced meats served with baby mozzarella, roasted vegetables and fresh bread. Main courses take in Milanese chicken escalope, breaded and shallow fried in garlic and parsley, served with spaghetti tossed in sweet plum tomato sauce and a wedge of lemon or oven roasted cod loin with fondant potatoes, cockles, peas, broad beans, sweet pickled onions and a red wine reduction. Make sure you leave room for their delicious chocolate brownie served with pistachio ice cream or vanilla panna-cotta and poached fruits.
Lunctimes Da Vinci offers a very good value set lunch menu that can be pre-ordered if you are in hurry. Italian varietals dominate the wine list and deft service injects warmth into the experience.
