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.
Took friends there for wonderful Italian food. Darcy’s did not disappoint—everything was spectacular
We were seated right in front of the Kitchen which was very noisy and cut down on our overall enjoyment. The Bronzino special had the same Picata sauce as the Chicken Picata. Both were very salty. Our service was excellent.
Restaurant was very loud and our dinners less than spectacular. I have been to Darcy’s in the past, and this by far, was the most disappointing experience.
Excellent food. Some of the finest bronzing I have had in a long time. would recommend.
Wish the noise was a bit less but had a wonderful dinner!!
Had a great birthday dinner with my husband and son.
Food was average, service by Scott was good. Don't know if I'd go there again.
Always a great place!
Food was very good. Other guests would have enjoyed it more if more of the veal and checken entrees were not breaded. The breading took away from the flavor.
We've been loyal customers for almost 10 years and the food never disappoints! We always enjoy seeing our favorite bartenders Mike and Gary. Waiter Mitch does a great job too! This is a hidden gem in Troon North!
Food was mediocre, especially for the price. Service poor. Atmosphere was nice in the dining room, but noise from the bar was too loud.
Good Italian dishes, no frills OK Wine list. My biggest complaint is that the restaurant does NOT filter or RO its tap water. It is well known that Scottsdale water tastes terrible! Most restaurants of this caliber and price range filter their drinking water. Maybe the strategy is to get you to buy more wine!!
The best in SCOTTSDALE!
Best Italian food in Scottsdale with a lively but friendly bar. Mike, the bartender is a gem who remembers your name and your drink.
I have been there before and have eaten in the bar area and the food was good and service OK maybe it was because it was New Year’s Eve but our waiter was totally stressed and fast and not paying any attention took four times to ask the same question for bread and both scampi dishes had absolutely no flavor and just very not done shrimp in liquid so we will not go back unless we do happy hour at their bar area ...
Had dinner here for NYE, it was our first time and we can’t wait to go back. Excellent food, great wine list and menu selection. Love love loved it!! Such a cute little area and location as well.
Food and service were very good. We had a great time on New Year’s eve.
Everyone is so nice and friendly and we get to enjoy good cocktails and food!
We enjoy your restaurant.
We had just moved to the area and wanted a nice dinner out on New Years Eve but didn't want to drive too far from home. We looked at the menu online and everything sounded so delicious! When we arrived at Darcy's we were warmly welcomed and our table had festive decorations and a New Years hat to wear! We had a hard time deciding what to order since we wanted to try it all! The food was delicious and our server was attentive and speedy. I think we have found our "go to" spot near our home. We cannot wait to go back to Darcy's!
I have to tell you we eaten out at fine restaurants in Maui, Las Vegas, Scottsdale, Telluride Park City, and internationally but I had the most delicious food here on New Year's Eve. Our waiter including all the staff also provided exceptional service. Thank you also for accommodating us last minute!
Nice New Years Eve dinner at Darcy's. Food was excellent. Service was excellent also. We will return.
We are frequent customers and love going there.
Good Menu, Good Service, good food, nice ambiance, overall a good experience
Great italian food, we called ahead and the chef made us Lasagna that wasn't"t on the menu, the best ever! Good service, nice choices and deserts.
They just keep getting better and better! Special orders and allergies are no problem. Best Italian in the valley.
Very nice meal. Service was good. The food was excellent. Best Italian we have had in a long time.
Good very nic
This is an excellent restaurant for quality Italian dishes, especially veal. Roberto, our waiter, was very knowledgable, friendly and did an excellent job taking care of our table.
We love Darcy's The food is great and so is the service. We'll be back many times in the future.
Excellent as always,Mitch is fantastic,always willing to modify their classic recipes to suite our dietary needs
Must just have been an off night. Table ready, very nice location and then....asked three times for butter by which time the bread was cold. Finally fresh bread and butter. Calamari was over cooked and tough, staff offered to “see if he could have it taken off the bill”. So hungry at this point that I ate half of it. I guess he was unsuccessful cause it was on the bill. The soup was VERY GOOD! After being there for over an hour, the waiter said your meals will be out shortly....I had to let him in on a little secret, he never actually took our order thus it would not be coming out shortly or ever for that matter. Asked for check and left. Oddly enough, was there 2 weeks prior for the first time with 6 others, ate in the bar, both food and service was EXCELLENT. Like I said, must have been an off night.
Wonderful food and highly recommended for everyone.
Once again, never had a bad meal at his restaurant. Veal is wonderful and Pork chop is outstanding.
We had a new waiter this time, but he had 20 years experience in another Scottsdale restaurant and took great care of our table. I would say that Darcy's is our all time favorite Italian restaurant in the Scottsdale area!
Food was good but we left hungry. Entree looked lonesome on the plate.
This restaurant found more ways to screw up Italian food than I would have thought possible. Our dishes were uniformly overoiled, overcooked, and flavorless. Veal Marsala consisted of medallions of paper thin veal (?) drowning in a gloopy mushroom sauce. My beet salad had beets out of a can topped with a mound of raw onions. Presentation was awful and the service uneven at best. Clearly there is a problem in the kitchen.
We had a wonderful Anniversary meal. The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive . This was our first visit but we would definitely go back.
Staff was great. Food was ok. Branzino isn’t a tasty fish. Prepared well tho.
The food and ambiance was excellent, as usual. Great food and great summer specials.
We love Darcy's. We try to get up there at least once a month.
Always fantastic !
Service was excellent! Stop at bar before dinner, bartender was awesome! He had great recommendations!
