Went 6.15 on a Tuesday night and were the only couple in for ages. However this was not a problem. Staff extremely welcoming,professional and helpful. The pancake with fish starter was divine. All food well presented, cooked and tasty . Portions sensible size. Both had 3 courses and a couple of drinks for £50.

Having been here 3 times this year, I am never disappointed by the quality or quantity of food, and the professionalism of the staff. Yes it's not in the most desirable part of town and yes it could probably do with a interior decorator, however the food speaks for itself! the antipasti starter is always excellent as is the saltimbocca.

The meal was superb and service excellent I opted for the set menu with wine. My starter was Crespella di Pesce (creamy... More

I had heard about Sardi's restaurant but had never been until this weekend. My husband and I live between Derby and Nottingham so we have a lot of very good quality restaurants available to us. We were staying up in Durham for a few days and we wanted to go out for a family celebratory meal. Six of us, with... More

We arranged to have dinner with our friends one Saturday evening and decided to book a table at Sardis. It's some time since we have eaten there. We were given a very friendly greeting by the staff and served with drinks in the lounge area whilst we chose our dinner selections. My wife and I had parma ham and melon... More

Sardis has long had a reputation for good food. My partner has visited through the years mainly at Christmas. She likes visiting and enjoys the food. I had not been for at least 15 years so I thought we could pop in for an early evening meal. There is a 2 course with coffee for £16. Starter and Main, It's... More

Went to Sardis last night for a late birthday treat. Had their fixed price menu and it was all fantastic. Food was exceptional, service was attentive but not in your face and the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. Thanks to Salvatore and his team.

It is rare that that I am impressed with all aspects of a restaurant. Sardi is an exception. Really great food and perfect staff. I will revisit. If you are near to Darlington then you should go and have a real treat.

Come over from Carlisle for our friend's Ruby wedding. Did not want to spoil their enjoyment so we said nothing on the night. There was not on ounce of the ambiance you might expect in an Italian restaurant. Is Sardinia like this? The decor such as it was could have been a waiting room anywhere I had the sardine starter...
