Darcy's Ristorante (FKA Gianfranco by Darcy Ristorante)
We are tucked away at the westerly foot of Pinnacle Peak. Beyond the simple wood and glass entry door is a bar and a dining room that exudes an aura of comfort and hospitality. Double clothed tables in pale taupe and mustard are mated with wood-framed oval-backed dining chairs that are beautifully embellished with nail heads. The seats and backs are upholstered in fawn brown ultra-suede. The whole thing comes together to create a mellow friendly ambiance, a home away from home feeling.

Our second time there...& we were fortunate to have Roberto again!! This restaurant is one of the few that automatically serve delicious warm crusty bread WITH BUTTER!
Wonderful ambiance, excellent service, fabulous meals! The chef has inspired recipes for branzino that are absolutely GREAT! One of our favorite restaurants and we will be back.
We need to support this wonderful restaurant during the summer months, great people and food!
Great food and service!
The food was amazing and the service was top notch.
Food is really good. Service can be spotty. Nice wine list. We usually come here when we visit Scottsdale primarily because the food is prepared well.
Great waiter, so delicious!!
I love the sand dabs there. Service is always excellent and I like the vibe of the place. Definitely one of my “go to” restaurants.
solid neighborhood restaurant. very friendly. i thought i saw pizza on open table but they didnt have pizza on the menu. ordered salads and then pasta and they were delicious. good wine by the glass selections. will come back again for sure.
We are going to highly recommend Darcy's to friends. Had a delicious meal, excellent wine & drinks and perfect service.
It exceeded our expectations. Food was absolutely tremendous and was what my wife was really wanted. Roberto was on top of his game--friendly, attentive and humorous. We would go again both for the food and and to sit at his table.
Very delicious and a very dood wait staff
So good to be back at this great Italian restaurant. Food is terrific and just as we remember it 15 months ago. Wonderful staff and very attentive. It was so good we want to go back every week!
A no frills local Italian eatery with a cozy and comfortable atmosphere with great service. I was visiting the area, but I could tell it's a popular place with the locals.
Authentic Italian with a great wine list. A gem of a place in our neighborhood.
Wonderful Northern Italian cuisine and a solid wine list. Sand Dabs and ravioli special on 5/22 were outstanding
We thought the food was mediocre . My husband had veal piccata and it was horrible. I had the Tortellini and it was just ok. The atmosphere was just ok. The waiter was very poor Never once came by to see how we were doing. Would never go back.
We always have an excellent meal and service at Darcy’s!
Great service and atmosphere. Food is outstanding and very reasonably priced. Nice wine selection.
Excellent food and service. We have not been to Darcy's since it was Gianfranco. We were very happy to see that the kitchen has not changed.
Great service and good food, but not great food.
First experience after being recommended. Food was extremely good. Service was good also. We will be back!
One our favorites, always great!
The food, ambiance and service is truly outstanding here. The food is really delicious! No one in the valley does better veal! Our servers were terrific.
Mitch was terrific!!! Great service and pasta!!
Delicious as always!
Second visit. Food is good and wait staff excellent.
Over priced for the quality of the food. My husband got the shrimp pasta and enjoyed it. I got the alfredo with chicken which was not flavorful. I had to keep adding salt and pepper and the chicken was crunchy and unappetizing. The service was very poor, front greeter was dressed sloppily and unprofessional for the ambiance of the restaurant and pointed to your table instead of walking you all the way there.
Lovely food and service.
We sat out side. Windy and not a great patio.
Food was excellent. Staff was wonderful.
Sorry the outside area is not very special.
The food was fantastic. I had lightly breaded veal topped with parmesan and asparagus in a brown sauce. My wife loved her branzino. The desserts we had, tiramisu and creme brulee were wonderful., and I am an experienced eater of each. Service was good, perhaps not quite the amount of attention you'd expect a few times during the meal. The key here is the food, it was fabulous, the quality of any four or five star restaurant in the valley. And the menu had lots of interesting things that will have to be left for another visit.
We enjoyed our dinner at Darcy’s tonight. Our server was excellent—very friendly, yet professional. Our appetizer and entrees were very good.
We were celebrating Easter. We went out on Saturday night...to avoid the Easter rush. We had a lovely dinner. The service was excellent.
Best Italian food in Scottsdale!
Very good food. Local favorite restaurant.
Had to wait almost an hour to order entrees after appetizers. They got busy, and we were forgotten. Still had a lovely dinner, just took much longer than expected.
We just moved into the area and are trying all the eateries that are close by. and we LOVE Darcy's.
Quick dinner plans led us here. Solid food. Ray the bartender is a great guy and makes you feel welcome. Check it
