Love this place! The perfect meal, ambiance, and service for my sister-in-laws birthday gathering. The owner brings decades of fine dining expertise to this gem of a restaurants! Tucked away in the Dana Point/Laguna Niguel neighborhood, it is far more warm and friendly than some of the pricier options nearby. My halibut was delicious!

Great food and service. Claudio was very friendly and attentive. We followed his recommendations and did not get disappointed. Spaghetti with meatballs is amazing.

We went with our two young children and they couldn't have been more accommodating. Good value for what they deliver, a nice bottle of wine, excellent clams in a delicious broth, delicious sole, wonderful desserts all delivered with friendly service and a pleasant atmosphere. Next time we are in the area we will be back.

Brio has good food at a good price-point. The service is good and so is the food. I would recommend it for lunch or dinner.

We had a great time at Brio in Dana Point. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. Our food was tasty. Try their house salad, veil and desserts with a nice red. We wanted to eat and dance so this was the perfect place with outdoor dining, a small dance area and bar. The music started at 9 pm and the... More

Food, ambiance,and service was excellent. I prefer to eat out at places where you can actually relax and hear yourself talk. I like the setup, they have a nice bar and dining area tucked inside with a dance floor if you want active ambiance, separated by a glass wall with a patio-like dining area which is more intimate for quieter...

We enjoy wonderful time at this cozy italian restaurant. All the items we tried from the menu, on several occasions, were delicious, well prepared and presented. Must try their Oso Bucco, scaloppine al lemone, spaghetti vongole and mixed italian appetizers. Our server, Claudio, was very friendly and made us feel among an italian family; we now ask for him when... More
