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.
Pan sautéed finished in a white wine sauce with lemon and capers
Lightly breaded, pan fried and topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese
Soft mild mozzarella cheese infused with mascarpone, drizzled with virgin olive oil and served with sliced tomatoes, roasted red peppers and diced cucumbers
Great food and service!
Everything-food and service impeccable! Thank you
Fantastic service. Been there many times and always had great food. Our favorite restaurant.
Food is exceptional and Robert the server is special. Thank you!
For Italian food this place has a nice setting and the service was great. The food was good not over the top. We did have a nice Mediterranean salad, my husband had chicken stuffed ravioli. I had the vodka rigatoni with chicken added. In spite of the fact there was Covid guidelines it was still very loud in the restaurant.
May return one more time and give it another try.
Very good food, especially the sauces! We always enjoy the waiters and their personalities!
Love this place! Food is Always amazing
Same great food and service every time!
Darcy's is a local gem in Scottsdale and very close to Four Seasons where we stayed.
Roberto was our waiter and was great!
First time here. Delicious food, fantastic service! We will be back!
We sat outside under a heat lamp and it was perfect. We were the only ones out there so it felt like a private dining experience. The food, wine and ambiance were lovely. Would definitely recommend!
Great food and service, very great place to meet!
Always great food, great service and great people.
Always great food and service!
Everything was outstanding! Our server, Roberto, entertaining and very knowledgeable about the menu. Very pleasant experience!
My favorite restaurant in Arizona❤️❤️❤️
In addition to attentive service, the menu featured a wonderful spinach egg drop soup that is not usually seen on most Italian restaurants in the Phoenix area, along with excellent appetizers, such as prosciutto with melon, and many other pasta and veal entrees.
This place is a true hidden gem! Excellent food service and win selection. We love it!
It's always a pleasure to dine at our neighborhood gem, Darcy's. Consistency is the key to great restaurant dining, and Darcy's has it--the food is dependably delicious and well prepared. From the initial greeting to the line cooks to the wait staff, the experience is a thoroughly lovely evening.
Our favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant. Wonderful food. Impeccable service. Nice bar, upscale ambiance.
We love Darcy’s! It’s our go-to for a great Italian dinner and have never been disappointed.
Great food and service
First time to this restaurant. The food was masterfully cooked and presented. The wait staff was friendly and not too over bearing.
When we’re at our home in Scottsdale we try to dine at Darcy’s 1-2 times per month. The biggest issue I continue to have is no option for the type of pasta with an entree. This is a fairly pricy dinner with penn pasta as the only choice unless you pay extra for another type. Holy cow, this is an ITALIAN RESTAURANT! Darcy’s is higher priced than most Italian restaurants in North Scottsdale, so what’s the deal with charging extra for a small portion of starch?? Not a huge deal but we have choices where we chose to dine to support our local restaurants but they need to meet us part way.
We had the nightly special and it was delicious. The servers were very attentive and curteous! This is a hidden gem and a wonderful date night spot!
I would say I was disappointed with the food and overall experience at Darcey's. We often go to the place across the way and think, it might be nice to try Darcey's. We have not eaten there since it was Gianfranco. After our visit there we were reminded that is was a beautiful looking place but the food was just OK. I had the fish special and it was not the "mild" white fish it was promoted to be. It is had to spend over $100 and leave feeling disappointed. I'm not sure I need to go back again.
So delish! Everything we ordered was awesome!
Every visit, it seems, is a winner. Our server Mitch is a keeper. Always look forward to having him wait on us... and the menu and wine list are very good. Chef always willing to flex on dishes to cook to order.
I’ve been to the restaurant when it was Gianfrancos and it was always excellent..
Now the food is just average and pricey...
Something is missing with the overall experience.
Fabulous food and incredible wine and fabulous service.
Great food and service. Looking forward to our next visit.
I love this restaurant. The food is amazing and the service is excellent.
I wish I could eat here every night!
Our dinner was fantastic! We had originally gone to the Four Seasons down the street, and were turned away for a walk in dinner, so we decided to try Darcy’s. The hostess was very kind and attentive and our servers were attentive and the food was absolutely delicious! We are excited to go back with more family members!
Our first time at Darcy's, and it didn't disappoint! The food was absolutely delicious, and the service was accurate and friendly. We will be back, for sure.
Late quiet dinner, veal was good, but the Carbonara was the best!!
Very nice dinner with friends. Visit g from SD and tried this place. Calamari was the best!
Loved everything but manager was rude. Ruined the entire experience. Our son works doing dishes. He came out to see how we enjoyed dinner and the manager chewed him out. I would Not recommend unless she quits or gets fired.
