Kinda obsessed. Canadian stole me away from Dean's... not forever but for the moment. Love their pick up specials. Great prices for the quality of the pizza.

We`ve been to Canadian Pizza many times over the years. We know what to expect: great food and great prices. I suggest checking them out.

This is one of the best pizza delivery places in my neighborhood. The pizza is high-quality, you can get great toppings (garlic!), and the price is decent (less than eXtreme Pizza). There are really only two downsides: 1) The pizza crust is GOOD, but Long Beach is the home of weird things on your pizza crust. Canadian's weird addition seems to be some kind of flour, which means that your pizza has a flaky outside that will crumble everywhere. No way you can just grab a slice and eat it on the go. Sit down, use a plate. 2) They like their onions. I mean, really really like their onions. Just know that the salad comes with its own layer of white onion. This is either a pro or a con, depending upon how you feel about your onions...

Love, love, LOVE this pizza!

This is, literally, a hole-in-the-wall joint, to be sure, however, the quality of their pizza is top-notch. Nothing super-fancy here, but what they do, they do VERY well!

The pizza crust is one of the best I've ever tried (and I have nye on 30 years of pizza-eating expertise here, people!).

I only wish they were open later for the after-the-bar crowd cause damn if this pizza doesn't taste even better after a few drinks!

I recommend the pepperoni with a generous sprinkling of red pepper flakes!

I don't like chains, so this place is def off the chain, especially when compared to those other establishments! Forget about Pizza Hut, Domino's, etc...sure, this place might be a few pennies more expensive, but it's worth it!Get the 2 for 1 specials. You must also get the cheese bread - it's like a small pizza all on its own! It's not really a place where you can sit, chill, and enjoy a beer; opt for delivery.

Why such a huge turn over with your banquet managers. Wendy was so professional and fun to work with, great ideas and now they have someone else.

How do I get in touch with Wendy?

Pros: The food and the old event planner

Cons: Is confused why she left?

I don't frequent this restaurant much, but every time I decide to go there, it's always a great experience. My girlfriends and I decided to go to this restaurant today for a friend's birthday. To my suprise there was a celebrity by the name of "Snoop Dogg" there today who was also was there i assume to enjoy the excellent food.

During our lunch the service was immaculate. From the excellent food, to the friendly and curtious staff. The food was perfectly salted and i couldnt have asked for a better lunch.

If good food with a nice environment is something you desire i strongly recommend going to this Restraunt. You will not be disappointed.

I attended my friends 50 th birthday party last Saturday at Da Vinci's and it was a blast. The guest of honor was flown down by helicopter as all of us were looking on from the patio. We ate gourmet cheese and drank amazing wines and then sat down for one of the best dinners I have had in a long time. I had the pleasure of meeting Chef Gotti and Wendy Parker that evening and they were so warm and very attentive the whole evening.

The only con was watching the banquet assistant, Danielle communicate with the staff, the way she did. Also when I was going to the bathroom I heard her screaming at the staff and the kitchen. She never had a smile on her face , and I couldn't understand why Ms. Parker would have a assistant like her. So un perfessional but everything else was simply devine.

I had the pleasure of planning my companies lunch meeting with Ms. Parker and my company was so impressed, we are planning our Holiday Party at Da Vinci's as we speak.

The service, the food and the Leonardo Room was perfect for our group of 20, and Ms. Parker worked with our budget and was hands on the entire event. I highly recommend Da Vinci's , Ms. Parker and Chef Gotti to all of my family and friends.

Look forward to the Holiday Party.

I was invited to meet some buddies at DaVinci's last night and I have to say how impressed I was with the Happy Hour Menu and the drinks. Also the music and view were breathtaking, the service was impeccable & I am coming back again this evening to bring my girlfriend.

Not a good experience for banquets. Their banquet coordinator was not very professional and frankly, seemed in over her head. This might be a nice restaurant to eat at (food was excellent), but do not entertain your clients there, and steer clear of large groups. Ms. Parker was not good at following up on details and had many elements of the dinner I recently hosted there incorrect. When I approached her with my concerns, she was very condescending. One of my colleagues had a similar experience back in March, but I checked Citysearch and all of the feedback seemed to be very positive. Nevertheless, I will inform corporate this is not the place we should be hosting our pharmaceutical dinners in the future. It wasn't that it was glaringly bad. It just wasn't what we had discussed, nor what I was anticipating. I also do not appreciate being "dismissed" by the event planner. It was as if she did not value my business...maybe we were small potatoes to her, but word gets around quickly in my industry. It is a shame, as my area is the South Bay, and it is hard to come across unique restaurants that make an indelible impression. I was really hoping this would have worked out, but the banquet coordinator just had a terrible attitude (maybe she was having a bad day?), and I don't feel I got the service I was paying for. It was more in line with Olive Garden on that end. Real shame.

From the looks of the negative feedback that has been given to Ms. Parker, I am not sure if w are talking about the same woman here.

I have had the pleasure to work with her seven times since she graced us with her presence a couple months ago.

I think the comments made were not fair and not accurate.
She will continue ( for me ) being a delightful, helpful and lovely lady. My pharmaceutical company will continue booking and booking at Da VInci, with Ms. Parker.

I had the pleasure of joining my group in Long Beach for a three day conference. Da Vinci hosted our group for three days and we could have not been more pleased. The food,the ambiance and the service was top notch. Dave Neary & Wendy Parker were so accommodating with all of our needs. We will be returning.

I used to go to Downtown Long Beach if I wanted fine dining in the area, but now that I've been to Davinci I have no intention of going back to Pine Ave.

Davinci's food is fantastic. It's a completely original cuisine too. Think about what you normally get when you go out for Italian food and throw that concept out the window. Plus the parking is free!!!! Yes, I know this is Southern California, but the parking is spacious and free and they also have valet, not that it's needed.

I really recommend Davinci as a place to take a date or for a dinner with the family. It's modestly priced and the service is top notch.

Look, Im a big fan of supporting the local restaurants and keeping the revenue in my neighborhood so to speak. I have called this place four times now to book a party of about 30 of our closest family and friends to celebrate and honor my parents for their fiftieth wedding anniversary. I have yet to get a single phone call back. That is fine, as I will just take my business elsewhere.

Last night I had my 30th birthday party catered and executed by Wendy Parker at Da Vinci and was thrilled with all aspects of the party. The food was delicious and my guests were all completely impressed and happy. Wendy's assistance made this party fun, easy and hassle-free. She had great ideas when it came to picking a vegan option menu and essentially made this party the best it could have been. Wendy was there to answer any questions I might have had during the planning process. She was professional, upbeat and incredibly personable. She even greeted the guests as they arrived to the party with a glass of champagne. I will definitely work with her and Da Vinci again and recommend her to anyone planning an event (large or small).

Thank you to all at Da Vinci and especially Wendy Parker for making my party feel effortless and fun!

Pros: The service and food were amazing!

Really, the whole restaurant oozed class and sophistication, from the interior design to the layout. Even the hanging helicopter in the rotunda depicted the ancient flying machine that Leonardo da Vinci designed. Absolutely a nice touch!

It was pretty busy, so we were seated next to the far windows by the deck and near the kitchen. Our server started us off with a some thinly sliced halibut and a bottle of prosecco to wet our appetites while we decided on what appetizers and entrees to order. We also selected a bottle of the 2005 Napa Valley Artesa which was set aside to breathe while our meals were being prepared.

The manager of the restaurant (Patrick) came by to give us a brief history and description of the wine we were about to consume and offered a few suggestions of some wines that might compliment a beef dish I will be serving at a house party over the weekend. If you read this, Thank you Patrick for the advice!

For dinner, I ordered the "Taggliatelle Cacciatora", which was a roasted duck over hand cut pasta dripping in a white cream sauce. It was absolutely spectacular! Delicious! The wine complimented the dish perfectly and the buttery flavor of the pasta was accentuated with the dry, crisp flavor of the vino.

All in all the restaurant did a tremendous job making me look good for choosing it. As we were leaving the restaurant, we noticed that our car had already been pulled up to the curb which was a nice touch. The hostess must have called downstairs to have our vehicle pulled up while we waited for the elevator to arrive. That was a very nice touch to end what was a perfect evening!

I just had the greatest experience and I wanted to share it with you viewers of City Search. I was invited to a reading for " Heathers" the musical and Da Vinci catered the after party at Endeavor in Beverly Hills. I was greeted with a glass of wine upon leaving the reading and then gorged myself with the cheese and mini veggie sliders and cannoli's. Yum.

I will be visiting your restaurant very soon. Classy and delicious.

So I came to this site today, for the first time, because I had such a wonderful experience with this restaurant and specifically the banquet manager, Wendy Parker, who catered my event today. And I wanted to write as a special thank you to them for making tonight such a magical evening for me and my colleagues. Then I read a couple of the reviews, targeting Wendy specifically, commenting on her attitude and inappropriate attire, and I was utterly shocked. Why? Because I found Wendy to be an absolute pleasure to work with: she created a menu and atmosphere that was perfect for our needs, she presented herself in a professional manner, both in appearance and action, and she was extremely accommodating. She answered every single one of my calls, and let me say, I can be needy when it comes to this kind of thing. I plan on using her and Ristorante daVinci for every event from here on in.

p.s. The cannolis were to die for.

I work for a company that holds regular business dinners at this restaurant, which are booked through a banquet manager. We originally came over from the Sky Room when their bqt manager, Christie Moya, came to work at Da Vinci. We gave them a lot of business and always felt like we were in excellent hands. When Christie left, a girl named Denay Zamora took over. She was equally as great, detailed, organized, and efficient. Flash forward - As everyone knows, the economy is tanking. Companies are canceling their business dinners right and left. Every dollar spent at a restaurant should be sacred to them! Well, apparently Denay has also recently moved on and there is a third new banquet manager named Wendy. I have left her several messages, can never get a phone call back, and the only time we did talk, she appeared not to care if she got my business or not. Very unprofessional. Now, it is my turn to move on! Do not waste your company's money by hosting a private function there. The service isn't what it used to be!

I recently held a company mixer at ristorante davinci and the event went great. The event was for about 100 of my colleagues and guests and management made sure that we had plenty of food and appetizers throughout. The new bar that they have in the front room is stellar and was busy all evening. The event was supposed to end at 7pm, but everyone was having such a good time that most stayed until 8pm! Many of the people in attendance have never been there before either and were really surprised with how nice everything was.

One of my favorite appetizers from the evening was the mini sausages wrapped in bacon. Honestly, are there two better things that can be combined? Looking forward to hosting another event there later on in the year.

I love the atmosphere at Da Vinci. The decor is fantastic as is the food. Every time we've gone we've enjoyed ourselves, whether we were out on the patio watching the planes and having a glass of wine or eating inside with our friends. This is a great place.

I have to agree with the previous reviewers - what a waste of fine space and decor. This restaurant fails to impress on so many levels. We had lunch there the other day. The hostess never once smiled as she took us to our seats. It was like she could care less if we were there or not. The server didn't seem to care either. He didn't seem enthusiastic for anything that was on the menu. Needless to say, my meal was prepared incorrectly and I had to send it back twice. Some guy named Dave stopped by our table to apologize, but didn't seem to really get the fact that we were annoyed. (I had brought clients there for a business luncheon and was trying to impress them). He just kind of smiled and shrugged his shoulders as if to indicate he didn't have a clue to what he was doing. In the end, we were offered a free dessert, which we politely declined. We had been there going on two hours (due to the meal being wrong). I couldn't afford to waste any more time. My company has had business meetings and parties there before...I never recall any problems, but it had been a while since then and this was first time I was back. Things have obviously deteriorated. Save yourself the trip.

I have to agree with the previous reviewers - what a waste of fine space and decor. This restaurant fails to impress on so many levels. We had lunch there the other day. The hostess never once smiled as she took us to our seats. It was like she could care less if we were there or not. The server didn't seem to care either. He didn't seem enthusiastic for anything that was on the menu. Needless to say, my meal was prepared incorrectly and I had to send it back twice. Some guy named Dave stopped by our table to apologize, but didn't seem to really get the fact that we were annoyed. (I had brought clients there for a business luncheon and was trying to impress them). He just kind of smiled and shrugged his shoulders as if to indicate he didn't have a clue to what he was doing. In the end, we were offered a free dessert, which we politely declined. We had been there going on two hours (due to the meal being wrong). I couldn't afford to waste any more time. My company has had business meetings and parties there before...I never recall any problems, but it had been a while since then and this was first time I was back. Things have obviously deteriorated. Save yourself the trip.

This restaurant has wonderfully authentic Italian food and decor composed of Leonardo's art and inventions. If you like fine dining and culture this is the place for you. The menu is excellent and the aura is special. While dining and appreciating masterpieces you can gaze out of the windows and watch the modern marvels of aviation arriving and departing Long Beach Airport. As a special treat you can also arrange for dinner and a helicopter tour of the area and coast.

The restaurant's kind of in a weird location since it seems so far away from everything, but the seclusion makes it kind of nice. Food is great, but it can get a bit noisy (similar to what the previous reviewer said). If you stop by the bar, make sure you get bartended by Angel. She's an awesome person, so get to know her if you frequent the place.

This was a good restaurant! Taking clients for dinner or lunch was a sure account, now don?t bet on it. Getting to the details (which matter most) will be long and tedious...Management was a joke; the food was so classic Italian is borderline boring, before was different and complex. The waiter new the entire menu but was not enthusiastic about it, look more like a recital, memorized to the T. It's a waste of space since it has a great decor. Music could improve. Inconsistent in food and service

My wife and I live locally in Signal Hill and are huge proponents of supporting the local businesses, which is why, despite God-awful experiences in the past, we decided to give this restaurant a third try recently. Unfortunately, it's now three strikes, and they are out!

It literally takes ten minutes for anyone to greet you~.which is really disappointing because employees are constantly milling by the hostess stand, but seem to stare right through you as they breeze on by. Its then another five or ten minutes after you've been seated until your server makes his or her way over to the table. I think there is a general sense of apathy from the staff. No one cares...and it shows.

The food is alright, although seems to change every time we've been there. (Our server sheepishly explained they are on their third chef in less than two years). My big complaint is the timing. We were with guests and entrees were being brought out two at a time. It's embarrassing. When the manager, Danielle, came over after we complained, she kind-of seemed to shrug her shoulders as if to suggest "it's out of my control."

Needless to say, we did not stay for dessert and will, in fact, never be back. Such a bummer > We could have used a good restaurant here in Long Beach, but Da Vinci is not that!

Wow! Let me begin by saying how odd it is that this restaurant's own employees are writing their reviews. This should be red flag #1. The list goes on...the turn-over, from management to chefs to staff has been unheard of! This lends itself to no consistency...one day it's old-school Italian, then its some version of artisitc french...now, who knows. It is very dirty...often with trash strewn on the floors and dust bunnies hanging from every fixture. It takes at least 30 minutes to get your food at lunch. The hostesses are unfriendly and uninviting. The restrooms are dirty, always out of toilet paper, with broken locks and door handles. It is so obvious the owners don't care. I have been 3 times and you couldn't pay me to go back. I will bet it will be out of business within a year. There is no sense of urgency or accountability. The waitstaff seems like they have never been through training.

Ristorante DaVinci sounds impressive and is impressive. This restaurant is a perfect place to impress a client with lunch. I have also enjoyed a romantic special occasion dinner at this restaurant and have not been disappointed. The staff are friendly and the food presentation outstanding. I particularly like the seabass as my favorite. You are made to feel special from the moment you enter the restaurant to the moment you leave. I also tried the Sunday Brunch for Mother's Day, the choice of food was amazing and it was a very relaxed atmosphere, thoroughly enjoyed it. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

I know you shouldn't go out on valentines day, but I had been told by a friend about this fantastic place by the long beach airport. Had valentines dinner last night at da vinci. Had a wonderful time. I entered and was in awe by the sheer beaty of the restaurant and then I was brought to my table promptly where I was greeted with a smile and a complementary glass of champagne. They had a live sax player who plays requests. The food was amazing, starting with a unbelievable beet salad appetizer, and highlighted with tender filet paired with lobster. I chose the wine pairing option for 20 dollars more, the wines where absolutely fabulous and our server Yasmine explained all the wine in great detail. The mood was very romantic and the staff and service where all smiles and top notch. And to finish it off they gave my wife a beatuiful long stem red rose with dessert. My wife thanked me for the great Valentines choice and I must say I am completely impressed by da vinci. Everything was perfect, and the price made it seem like a steal.

I was recommended to daVinci by a friend. After hearing all the great things he had to say I thought maybe he was over-exagerating. But, on a recent trip to the are I decided to try it out. I was not disappointed, it was everything he said and more. You need to go, believe it.

This restaraunt is "full of balance." The decor is beautifully balanced between modern styling and subtle cues from old style Italy. The wine list seems to flow effortlessly when pairing it with the food. The service was fantastic eventhough their best bartender is no longer there now.

I too live locally in California Heights Historic district, a subsection of Long Beach. I have eaten at Ristorante Da Vinci many times and have never had an unpleasant experience. On the contrary, I have always experienced very knowledgeable and friendly waiters, hostesses, and managers including Danielle who has always made sure that we were having a fine dining experience. The food at the restaurant is absolutely out of this world in both taste and presentation and the decor takes your breath away. Totally love it and recommend it-My husband and I eat there at least once a month-we love it so much.

Da vinci Restaurant is one of the best restaurants I have been to. The food was absolutely amazing. I started with the carpaccio which is to die for. I always have the seabass which I highly recommend. The service is excellent. I go there regularly after work about 2 to 3 times a week. Their bar is great place to meet up with friends and meet new people. One insider tip, valet is optional. Just drive right pass the valet and self park, don?t pay someone to park your car 10 feet away.

In December a large group of friends and I decided to head over to Da Vinci in Long Beach for some dinner. I had been there a few times during the week for a quick bite for lunch and adored the food and atmosphere. By the time we got there the place was super packed. We did have some delay in getting our table. But the manager kindly came over and and apologized, offering us a bottle of wine as we waited!! . Once we were seated in the elevated ?rotunda? and had placed our orders. The food was certainly worth the wait and we ended up enjoying the slowed down pace of our Friday dinner. This place is just superb - great, honest service and unbeatable food. What a needed addition to this neighborhood!

Went to go buy a gift certificate for a coworker at davinci. Outside of the building looks industrial, not anything special to say the least. Upon entering the restaurant, wow. I asked the Maitre'd if I could take a look around. The place seems more ceasars palace than long beach. they have a wonderful patio that looks over the runway and they got a big screen high def TV tucked away where only the patio guys can see. I am a patio guy, and I found out they have an amazing happy hour. Free gourmet pizza, i mean gourmet type where you really dont know what is on it, but is really really delicous. Plus half off their wines by the glass which has about 25 selections and beers. So I stayed watched the celtics game, had 3 glasses of wine, including an amazing zin that the bartender recommended and a flat out amazing barberesco , ate pizza and spent about 20something dollars. The staff was was knowledgeable and very accomaditing. I ended up buying two gift certificates, one for my wife.

As myself and a close friend boarded the elevator to the third floor restaurant, we were unsure of what to expect. The doors opened transporting us from an ordinary office building to the most elegant combination of modern and Italian architecture. We were greeted by the manager for it was Wednesday night and the restaurant seemed to not be very busy, though the employees we came in contact with seemed very competent and knowledgeable and it is hard to understand the lack of service noted in other reviews. Our server who happened to be the bartender as well I believe was named Angel or atleast that is how her personality would be described. She entertained us throughout the whole night recommending most of our courses as well as our wine pairings. Every course was beautifully presented and delicious, drinks remained full as well as our stomachs. The bartender made the tastiest dessert coffee drink I've ever had and dessert was a good portion to end on. I will definately return, hopefully when the upper story balcony in the restaurant has opened and if I feel daring, for one of their helicopter flights with wine tasting. I full recommend this restaurant for anyone wanting a great night with great food and wine and with a little money to spend.

Great place to visit and dine, from the moment I stepped into the restaurant I felt welcomed and the staff was nice and caring. I request a booth for two; our server was nice and prompt. I was told that the menu is seasonal and the chief is always coming up with new dishes. the wine selection was truly amazing, I ordered the lamb and the confit, two dishes that are truly delicious. The food was exquisite, and the whole experience was great. This is my new favorite restaurant in Long Beach.

The offerings and atmosphere at this beautifully decorated eatery are beyond explanation. The wine list is absolutely amazing and the somellier is very knowledgable.

I had a great time! The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food, we order our meal all at the same time and relax for the rest of the evening, our server took care of all the timing and the food was timed properly. Our server was very knowledgeable about the wines and the preparation of the food, he explained all the item in simple terms, describing ingredients and flavors, the menu has all the description but is better to hear it from someone who has tried it. The lobster pasta was incredible and the wine pairing made it even better, he took care of all the details. I would recommend this place for anyone who wants a dinning experience not just eat and leave! We are going back for the helicopter tour and the wine tasting.
