The food is always good, although we think the portions are getting on the small side. Great ambiance and service.

It was many years since I'd been here and I was concerned that it might be a bit dated. But the food and service were as good or better than I remember them. We had the freshest Caprese salad I have had in this country and the duck was perfectly cooked.

The food quantity on the main dishes was light considering the high prices for this restaurant. I got the elk, which was good, but was only given 5 small pieces of meat that had to be less than 5 ounces in total. Service was very slow. Wine pouring poorly managed.

Darios always has very good food, excellent service and lovely old-fashioned ambiance.
It is perfect for a business lunch as you can hear one another speak.
There is ample free parking and the location at the Italian Cultural Centre is central to everything.
Highly recommended.

Italian food done well! Pricey and small portions but good food. Always good for a special dinner night out or treat. Happy stomachs.

First and last visit. Between 4 guests our bill was over $200. At best some of the dishes were satifactory. One of us had ordered the tenderloin, wasnt much larger than a toonie. Another dish was the clam pasta. After spending 10 minutes finding and shucking all the clams, found out it just tasted like salt. When the waitress returned to find nearly a full plate of pasta, she didnt ask whether the meal was good or not.

We love this restaurant. It is elegant without being over the top, comfortable and always made to feel welcome by Lydia. The food is good albeit smaller portions but that is everywhere. great parking and easy to get to even by skytrain.

Dario's is a wonderful place to eat with the family although I would certainly not restrict myself to family dining. The menu offers something for everyone. The food is prepared beautifully and is absolutely delicious. They are most accommodating to allergies as well. The service is excellent. Desserts are as mouthwatering as the main course. I would highly recommend Dario's. You will not be disappointed.

It was our first time at the restaurant and we were there for a friend's birthday. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was good but the service was awful, not at all welcoming. We found our server rude and at one point had to tell her there was no need to be so aggressive with us. Unfortunately the server's attitude impacted on what was to be a fun evening.
