Darcy's Ristorante is a landmark Italian restaurant bringing the best to North Scottsdale. As a local fixture that has been offering irresistible Italian dishes and an extensive wine list, we are proud to be North Scottsdale's choice for Italian dining. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or just looking to enjoy one of our specials with all the flavors of the old country amongst friends, come in and explore the Italian food that has made us famous.
​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.

    Food is delicious! We've been going to Darcy's for a few years. They make dining comfortably casual. I have two suggestions, temperature control could be more consistent and a decor update would be nice.

    An old school Italian restaurant but has a bit elevated level of food choices The food is always tasty and the service is friendly and professional if you are looking for a break from the high noise levels of today’s restaurants this is a good choice. I do wish that they would remodel as the room is just so tired. But we will go back for sure. Good food is good food!!!

    Service was fine and not rushed. I had sand dabs, prepared in a piccata sauce,,, wonderful. My wife's veal Marsala superb. Servings plentiful. Not to mention the bread was really nice. Alos enjoyed our dessert.This was our first dining experience here and we will certainly be frequent diners of Darcy's in the future.

    Roberto is perfect, a traditional waiter, humor, professionalism, superb service. The fresh Halibut was to die for. I am a fish lover and to find a restaurant that can cook it perfectly is a delight. We dined at this restaurant 3 nights over a one week stay in the area. Every time was perfect. The pasta dishes are also beautiful.

    Great to return to the former Gianfranco's and find that the food, sauces & service are all top notch. Would highly recommend to those who appreciate fine Italian food and nice wines. Not the least expensive place but the quality of food is worth the time to stop in and enjoy1

    Great dinner with one continuing issue. With a pricy dinner your side is either a vegetable or pen pasta. You can’t make any substitutions. No other pasta allowed. Really, this is an Italian restaurant with different pastas on the menu. For that reason we eat here less as other Italian restaurants provide more options. Not sure this is a hard one to solve but I’ve brought it up, as have my friends many times.
