So good we went three times
As vacation club members at the Omni, we were able to make three reservations at the fine dining restaurants during our 7 day all-inclusive stay. We made 2 reservations at Da Vinci, and after our second evening, we changed our other reservation to a third. Our first experience was very good, the dinner was lovely but the server had little personality, and did not make any suggestions regarding the menu. In addition, a diner next to us apparently has no idea what formal attire is (it is stated on the reservation, and noted everywhere: long pants for men) and this guy was wearing Adidas sweat pants and sneakers. Yes he followed the letter of the requirement, but definitely not the spirit. The menu is extensive and you can choose an appetizer, salad, soup, pasta dish, and main course, then dessert. I had the beef carpaccio and it was yummy, but was not served with any toast so I used the bread basket. The salads were excellent, and our pasta dishes were as well.The second dinner was simply amazing. Our waiter was Alfredo. He was outstanding. When we ordered another pasta dish, he asked us to then order a main course. We both commented that it sounded like too much food, and he suggested we have a half portion of pasta with the main course ~ great idea, but never mentioned on our first visit. We both had the steak and it was cooked to perfection as was the pasta. I had the beef carpaccio app again, and this time it was served with shaved parmesan cheese and toast points... excellent. When my friend ordered bottle of Malbec, Alfredo suggested a different bottle which he said was better, but he was not up-selling her, it was actually less expensive and very good. For dessert we had the artist's palette, which is a sugar cookie shaped like a palette, served with 3 little scoops of ice cream and a white chocolate "picture" of Mona Lisa. A treat for the eyes and the tongue. We were so pleased with this dining experience, we changed our last reservation so that we could return to Da Vinci and Alfredo.On our third visit, we were served by Enrique who was just as wonderful as Alfredo. Again making suggestions with the menu, always smiling, and conversational. I cannot say enough about the experiences with the food, decor, music, and service at Da Vinci.
