Next to the normal categories, the menu has two pasta parts: Fresh Pasta and Pasta & Risotti. During our last visit, I tried Gnocchi al pistacchio e bresaola (~8€), which sounds exotic and was excellent. Both pasta sections include two dishes with truffle, and even though the truffle shaves themselves are more for decoration than for taste, the sauces have a nice strong aroma. While we never actually got to the main courses and ended up filling our stomachs with different kinds of pasta, the menu continues with the fresh attitude: Goose filet in cherry and almond sauce (~13,50 €), Beef filet with grated Robiola cheese and red chicory (radicchio), salmon with beet carpaccio and asparagus. The desserts (there’s always space for one dessert) are slightly more traditional, but nevertheless very good and of a stunnig visual appearance (see picture, I just love the heartbeat idea). If you’d like to go for a nice drink before or after, the simpler sister-restaurant Leonardo is just on the other side of the entrance and is nice for cocktails and other drinks.
Although a bit high priced in relation to the general price level, Da Vinci seems to have taken its well-earned spot in the increasingly competitive
PS. The full menu can be found at their webpage, which even has three different background music tracks to choose from :)PPS. I just learned today (Aug 2008) that there's a shady pizzeria on the same street, a few houses further down the road - if you're looking for DaVinci, make sure you're not walking past.
