About us

DaVinci Ristorante Italiano was born in the autumn of 2017, the “love child” of an Italian couple who visited Scotland and decided to move here and turn their passion for cooking into a small family business.

Elena and Christian both share a love for good food. Christian is passionate about Italian recipes, while Elena is fascinated by the pastry universe. She recently received her professional culinary diploma which makes her an official sweets fairy!

They both love tasty food and fresh, quality ingredients are essential for creating authentic taste. That is why they only use the best ingredients and the menu changes with the season foods.

DaVinci vows to use the best ingredients to create unforgettably delicious meals. Our vegetables come from Turriffs of Montrose, we get our fish (including our new dish, tuna steaks) from Granite City Fish and our meat comes from Donald Russell – because if it’s good enough for the Queen it’s good enough for us!

Press Appearances

“The chocolate mousse was absolutely phenomenal and probably my favourite dish of the night. It was rich, light, creamy, and everything you would want out of a chocolate dessert.” (Julia Bryce)

A real taste of Tuscany
So glad we returned to this little gem tonight. Pleased to see Elena and Christian are still doing well and serving wonderful fresh food with a difference. The ravioli with pear and pecorino cheese was exceptionally tasty and my other half is still raving about his dessert of panna cotta with caramel sauce.
The restaurant was cosy and busy with a real buzz and service was very attentive. It’s back on our list of “places you must visit!”
