Visitors to the South Lakes town of Millom return to their hotels after a busy day sightseeing before turning their attention to dinner. Where to go? What to eat? Well, wherever any of us travel throughout the UK or abroad, in order to find the best value we follow the locals and in Millom there is a steady stream heading towards Da Vinci’s Ristorante. So that is the venue decided and not surprisingly the theme is authentic and extremely popular Italian!
And, Mamma Mia! Da Vinci’s is truly superb. Yes, they are popular within the Millom region but such is the value and quality that they draw from Liverpool, Bolton, Whitehaven etc. As should be the case, particularly with Italian restaurants, it is family run with parents Gillian and Biagio supported by children Robert, Andrew, Alicia and, essentially by their talented and trained chef son, Paul. Service is friendly, relaxed and unobtrusive, the ideal atmosphere in which to enjoy a splendid meal for that is what is about to occur.
Prepared in authentic Italian style, if you prefer a plainer English version just tell them in advance and they will prepare a dish just like Momma in Millom used to make, there is a splendid choice of Antipasti (starter) followed by pizzas and pastas to die for. Or perhaps you prefer steak, chicken or fish, all prepared using the special Da Vinci recipe code and accompanied by fresh vegetables and potatoes. This menu is extremely varied and caters well for vegetarians plus there is a further Fiesta menu whereby you can enjoy a starter, pizza or pasta and a sweet for just £17.50, the sort of price you might expect to pay in a small south Italian village restaurant, but not in the South Lakes region of the UK.
So, whether you are seeking to treat your partner to a memorable meal, to relax after a hard day at work or sight seeing or perhaps to arrange that special celebration with family and friends, the answer this millennium in Millom is to be found at Da Vinci’s Ristorante. Open six days of the week the first visit will not be your last supper at Da Vinci’s!
