Leonardo Da Vinci Restaurant in Phuket

The Best Italian Dining in Kata Garden Condominium

Leonardo Da Vinci Restaurant is the logical extension of the successful Nai Harn branch of this excellent Italian restaurant although it looks nothing like the open-spaced original Da Vinci. Located in Kata Garden Condominium on the only road to Kata Noi Beach, Leonardo Da Vinci Restaurant is accessed either by steps from the road or through the condominium’s parking. Refined, elegant, and stylish, this restaurant cuts a swathe on Kata’s dining scene and serves high-end Italian fare in a suitably chic environment.

Diners can choose between two air-conditioned dining spaces or a fan-cooled centre space – and this seems to be the most popular option. Appending the restaurant is a classy air-conditioned cocktail bar and a well-stocked and colourful delicatessen selling Italian cheeses, fruit, cooking and salad oil, and dried goods.

With parquet floors and soft lighting throughout, Leonardo Da Vinci Restaurant is pleasing to the eye and gets busy surprisingly quickly on the evening we visit and the crowd is decidedly cosmopolitan with several different languages floating through the evening air. Well-nourished travelers’ palms vie for space with birds of paradise plants, encircling the outside dining area and lending tropical hints to the handsome décor.

Leonardo Da Vinci Restaurant serves genuine Italian dishes and this is evident as we sample excellent Venetian onion soup with croutons and grated parmesan and homemade bread – this chowder-like dish (240 baht) wears its richness agreeably light and as it is braised for two hours the texture is gorgeous. The restaurant’s vegetable soup (240 baht) is also a winner.

Leonardo Da Vinci Restaurant avoids fusion dishes in favour of the original recipes and ingredients. A four-cheese pizza (420 baht) is next featuring mozzarella, parmesan, gorgonzola, and taleggio – the flavours blending into a rich, creamy harmony that goes well with the soft base.

Again, ‘classic’ is the word to describe a whole white snapper (750 baht) with potatoes and zucchini along with a light and tasty Greek salad (320 baht) followed by a generously proportioned tiramisu (290 baht). The dining experience here is satisfying, and even more so if taken into consideration the fact that this is a relatively newcomer to Kata (it opened in 2013). Judging by its obvious popularity, word gets round quickly in these parts as to where to eat well in classy surroundings. 

Leonardo Da Vinci Restaurant has an extensive menu ranging through risottos, lasagnas, tagliatelles, spaghettis, pastas – to specialist dishes such as slow-braised beef cheek. All in all, it’s an extremely attractive restaurant with steady and knowledgeable management.
