I bought a coupon from TravelZoo, essentially half price for a four course dinner. I am always a little concerned that we will get the best food or service with a coupon. Brio Tuscany Grille was EXCELLENT. The prix fixe menu had plenty of choices. We had a lovely antipasto plate, my wife had crab and lobster bisque while I... More

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

I have been coming to Brios for 18 years, and I was shocked to see it is only rated 41 of 111 restaurants. So I decided to write my first review of the restaurant! I am familiar with all of the restaurants in Dana Point, and there is NO WAY that 40 of them are better than Brios. The servers... More

We have traveled through Italy, including Tuscany and this restaurant does a pretty good job delivering the experience. The decor is spot on, the food selection and quality is great and the service is attentive. The one area that is not authentic is that they actually serve olives. When we were in Italy, we found that there were never any... More

Went to the restaurant with another couple for the first time. We had a Groupon discount coupon and decided to try it. It was spectacular. We all had the five course dinner and we all enjoyed our choices. Great wine selection. A warm friendly place. Our server was efficient and friendly.

This place is above average Italian in located in Dana Point. The atmosphere is lively and seating is nearly always available. Food is good, as is service and wine choices. The outdoor seating is a great addition to the restaurant because the interior is small and often very loud.

We opted for buying a travelzoo voucher for this place when my son and his GF were coming to visit us since we all enjoy trying new places. I was worried at first after reading some of the negative reviews but I guess how you feel about a place depends on your own experience. We sat outside and our location... More

We dined recently on the patio of Brio. When we first arrived I almost turned around and left because of the location, but once seated inside, you had no idea that you were in a strip mall. It was charming, tasty and excellent service. They have early bird dinner specials, large portions and a very decent wine list. Our waiter... More

We sat outside with heaters above us. Atmosphere was great. Dinner was superb. Friendly staff. Close to where we stayed so having a glass of wine or two was no problem! Shrimp was delicious.
