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...

Went with old friends who hadn't visited the place for over 20 years but remembered the good food. Upon entering the restaurant our friends said that the place looked exactly the same as it had all those years ago. I ordered a pasta starter and the portion was HUGE, kind of wished I hadn't ordered a rack of lamb for... More

Italian menu and authentic Italian hospitality. Went there with a load of old friends and wives so had to have time to banter and carouse which the host positively encouraged. Lovely food, lovely people and good value, if only it had a view over a lagoon or some heat-hazed hills and a terrazo where it was warm enough to site... More
