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...

We have been going to sardis for a number of years now. In all this time the excellent menus and food quality has never been anything other then excellent. The service is great whatever you ask for they try their best to make you happy. If you have not been here then we can recommend it truly 5 star food.

My wife and I are lovers of Italy and Italian food and right in the middle of Darlington there is an oasis of the latter not to be missed. With an outside appearance of lesser impact you are immediately greeted by the warmth of the inside of the premises and the staff and the experience is underway. Unlike many restaurants... More
