I have eaten at Dario in the past, it's one of the few White Table Cloth Italian restaurants north of Palm Beach County.

It is exactly one hour north of where I live and one hour south where my relatives live so it's a great place to meet for family dinners.

The menu is diverse, I like the Sautéed Artichoke Heart appetizer and the Bolognese.

Pistachio Italian Cheese Cake is yummy.

Wine list is excellent.

Service is very professional.

We really liked the food and the service but we thought it was a little loud. It would be nice if they played soft music and had a quieter area.

I"m straight up gonna tell you I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs because not only is it an Italian staple, but hard to botch as well. The meatballs were "breadballs". I grew up cooking and eating homemade meals from an Italian family from New York. My idea of a meatball is exactly that: cutting into the meatball w/ bits of garlic, onion, parsley, breadcrumb oozing w/ a bit of natural meat juice as well. Man, the balls were bland, dry and more like a doughnut. We were there for my girlfriend's birthday and she had the chicken Marsala and it was bland, too but not getting into that (we're not saltaholics either). I'm not looking for anything free or trying to smear anybody, but w/ such a beautiful restaurant in an ideal beachside location w/ a Wonderful wait staff....what gives? Great place, great people but the price they charge for the food we ordered, I'm out for now. Kick up the recipe a notch and you've got a winner on your hands.

The noise level generated by the large party seated in the outdoor area derailed the ambience and our overall dining experience. It was so loud we couldn’t hold a conversation at our own table or hear the music.

The food never disappoints at Trattoria Dario. Our server Marley was very good. The only minor disappointment was that we had indicated on our open table reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary but there was no acknowledgement by either the person seating us or the server regarding this. The owner is always present in the dining room and we had the opportunity to speak with him after we had finished our dinner. We shared how much we enjoy the restaurant and did mention the anniversary issue. He apologized stating that the server was relatively new but should have picked up on it from the reservation. In any event, I was glad we had spoken to the owner, as unbeknownst to me my wallet had slipped out of my purse during dinner. The owner called me the next day to say they had found it under the table when cleaning. I was so grateful as at that point I had not yet realized it was missing and was glad to be able to go and retrieve it. We have been to this restaurant several times and will continue to go for the delicious food, nice ambience, good service and hard work and commitment to his business on the part of the owner.

Nice large outdoor dining area. Everyone looked very happy. The food was delicious. We loved the baked bread stuffed with garlic and a great olive oil mixture to dip the bread in to.
Dessert was as delicious as dinner. Would recommend this restaurant.

Great restaurant. Food was delicious and service by Johnny was awesome. Salmon over spinach was delicious so is the bruschetta and the calamari. Great wine selections. The outside patio is quaint and the indoors room energetic, restaurant is as good for a family meal as it would be for a date.

Perfect Saturday evening dinning experience. Enjoyed bruschetta appetizer (perfect for two) the the chard grilled Cesar Salad this was also perfect to share the dressing was not thick and included anchovies. Main dishes include the swordfish breaded in Panko
and oregano on the grill, this was perfect! Swordfish served with Brussel sprouts and lemon olive oil blend. Second entree was the standard chicken parmigiana it was also perfectly breaded and cooked with pasta as a side. Enjoy this neighborhood gem the service is always friendly and the my make you feel important and want the best for their guests.

This was the first time dining here since we were staying in the Vero area for a long weekend. Unfortunately our experience was not good. It began by arriving to the front desk without a host/hostess. After some time the hostess showed up and seated us at our table. It was a booth with a reserved place card on it. Nice touch.

We then waited about 15 minutes until our waiter came, gave us our menus and took our drink order (all were non alcoholic). We then waited about 15-20 minutes. During that time several other wait staff passed by our table and kept looking at us. Finally, another waiter stopped at our table and asked if we had been waited on. We told him that we had ordered drinks 15 minutes before but then never saw the waiter again. He said that he would check to see what had happened.

Several minutes later and our new waiter showed up with our drink order. The drinks had obviously been sitting awhile because the ice had melted in the iced teas. He then said he would be back to take our order.

Ultimately we ordered an appetizer and then entrees. The food was good but our service was so poor that it overshadowed the entire evening. While our second waiter apologized, we were not offered anything for our poor service such as a cocktail or appetizer on the house. Nor did the manager come over to see how we were doing. We simply felt unwelcome and that we were a burden to them.

It is a shame that the poor customer service overshadowed the food that they served, which was good. No, I won't go back or recommend them to others.

Dario the owner is hands on involved in what goes on in his dining room.
The menu has great choices and we enjoyed a great meal for the second time in a week.
We highly recommend the Beet Salad With Fresh Mozzarella & Balsamic glaze, the Beggars Purse pasta, and the Copiano.

Particularly like the fact several entrees and salads come with small or large portions. Quality of food was excellent. Would definitely return. Extra large booths were private and kept down noise from large parties nearby. Wonderful bar area and outdoor seating.

Where do I begin? We have been eating at Dario’s for about 2 years now and are regulars. Everything is amazing from the moment you are greeted by Layla you are made to feel welcome.

Derek always takes care of us and provides impeccable service with a positive disposition every single time we dine here. Happily making recommendations and his knowledge is always on point. He is excellent!

The owner, Dario, is a hands on host and constantly checks on his guests and again, always making recommendations. You feel his passion and love of taking care of his guests every single time we go. He genuinely loves what he does.

The food- always on point and tastes like you are in a restaurant in Italy! Everything we have ever ordered, and we’ve ordered a lot of different things, is always delicious and as described.

Sinead makes amazing drinks, again, always with an upbeat friendly attitude.

I couldn’t recommend this restaurant more. You will not be disappointed. By far one of our favorite places to eat in Vero. Try it for yourself and you will become a regular like us!
