Our reservation was for 5:00 on Sat. Arrived to find restaurant mostly empty, except for a few locals in the bar. The decor was worn out. The booths had worn out red upholstery. We were not sure we'd made the right location for dinner, but when the food arrived, we were more than impressed. Everything was incredible, except the decor.

Sat on porch and it was lovely. Our waiter, Bernardo, was on top of his game taking our cocktail order as soon as we sat down. Carpaccio starter huge (could have had as my meal) and excellent. Caprese salad looked beautiful. Special pompano delicious. Will return soon!

Food was excellent and unique. Grilled Caesar salad and Branzino is hard to find in Vero. The Pompano was excellently prepared with lump crab meat. It was extraordinary.
Dario is an awesome host. This place is a gem, highly recommended

The bus boy poured water into the lemonade and Sprite so we had to wait for a replacement drink. I asked for light on the sauce and it was heavy. They don't know how to make real Italian food. The sauce was terrible. They never came back to the table with grated cheese. They put too many capers in the veal piccata. The calamari was over-cooked.

Great Italian food. Spotty service as we were sitting in an area where the bartender was our waitress. But she had a great attitude. Wine advice was non existent. We knew more. All that said, I love the food and atmosphere, so none of the negatives will affect our fondness for the place.

We were warmly greeted and seated by staff. Our table for two was available on time, per our reservation. The seating was comfortable and roomy. Our server was pleasant, very knowledgeable and extremely attentive. Appetizers, salads and main courses were all well portioned and nicely presented. The courses were well spaces, never leaving us feeling rushed. The entrees were accurately described on the menu, nicely seasoned and cooked perfectly. Pleasant atmosphere, great service and awesome food. We highly recommend it and we will be back!

Although the service was very good the food left a lot to be desired. I ordered the carpaccio but was disappointed since it was more salad then beef. Drenched in a vinaigrette which made it hard to taste the beef. Also not much beef on the plate. Had the spaghetti carbonaro. Plenty of it on the plate but way to heavily accented with bacon which overpowered the whole dish. Not an enjoyable meal at all and quite pricey for what I ordered. Carpaccio was $16 for basically a salad. Don't think we will go back. Décor needs so update. The booth seats were pealing and unsightly.

Dario’s has some Italian dishes, like Canneloni, that one does not find on many menus. Dario is a very involved host and does make everyone feel at home and important. Dario’s was recommended to us (Snow Birds) by a friend and we will most definitely recommend it to others!

My wife and I tried Dario once during a short stay in Vero Beach since it was within walking distance of our rental unit. The food (canelloni for my wife and risotto for me) was delicious and by far the best we had while in Vero Beach. The service was proper. Since Dario is a trattoria it is supposed to be noisy, which it was. However, we would have preferred a more quiet atmosphere. As it was, we had to sit right next to each other to have a conversation.

The plastic covered patio was sweltering on a warm February evening. I'm not sure why the restaurant doesn't open the plastic coverings to enjoy the nice coastal breeze. Additionally, the plastic makes the patio dining feel dirty & cheap.
The server was uppity & offended when I pointed out that he forgot to bring my wine. When he finally brought it, there was red wine dripping off the glass, & he was annoyed by my request for him to clean the glass off.
The Mgmt offered me a free desert for my disappointing experience, however, it was terrible, dry brownie-type dessert. Not enough whipped or ice cream could have helped this desssert!

Calamari was good but small for $11. Caesar salad was dry, not enough dressing. Veal scallopine was perfect. Risotto was bland and uninteresting. Prime rib steak was cooked perfectly but quite tough for a supposedly prime grade of steak. It was the toughest rib steak I have ever eaten in a restaurant despite being cooked medium rare. And it was expensive!

we had been here several times before and the food and service were very good. but this experience was not. we waited for 20 minutes before a waiter came to take our drink order and that was only after I asked for someone to come to our table. our food, except for the very good beet salad, was not good. the food was off-putting with flavors that did not mix well. it's never right to put lemon dressing on beef carpaccio and a strange herb dressing on the tuna carpaccio. both the beef and the tuna were overpowered. our waiter gave us a $20 gift certificate, but that didn't make up for the $100.00 dinner.
