Meat is the theme here. If you like meat this is where you should eat. Dario is a master. His technique and preparation of each course was without question the work of a master chef, butcher, host. This is the best meal I have ever had. The atmosphere is one of great joy. Sitting a a table with people form... More

We went to dario after a "tip" from other people. We shouldn't have. What a terrible touristic moneymaking thing this is. Long tables, with only one type of wine and bread on the table. We were with 3 kids, when we asked if we could eat another thing than just the 50 euro dario meal, the answer was no. We... More

The butcher shop was a great experience as we were given wine and a toasted crostini with a spread of lard and Rosemary. Dario was a great host. We had lunch across the street and also came back the night after for dinner and had the meat dinner that in my opinion was the greatest night of my life. Fantastic... More

Rated on lonely planet as a must visit, it is indeed an experience. We entered the butcher shop to have a glass thrust into our hands, filled with Chianti, and an invitation to taste the treats on offer. Then to the sudden load beat of ACDC Highway to Hell, the shop was invaded by a busload of young tourists and... More

We went to Mac Dario for lunch and our only regret is that we didn't go more hungry! The butcher shop itself was a very cool experience as we were given wine and a toasted crostini with a spread of lard and rosemary - it was so delicious and we probably ate too much of that prior to lunch! We... More

As if Cecchini requires any more great recommendations! But I'll throw in my two cents worth! We have been visiting Dario's Macelleria and restaurants since 2007 and can only say that it's worth the trip! Our last visit was a couple of months ago where we met a friend for lunch. We opted for sharing a platter of Chianti "sushi"... More

Had a great lunch at this place, great staff, brilliant atmosphere and although I'm not into fast food the best hamburger I've ever had. Would certainly recommend a visit!

Amazing 5 course meat only dining "to beef or not to beef". Loved this 3 hr plus experience at a communal table. Free flowing meats, wines and grappa! Loved this place. It was everything plus more that Anthony Hourdian spoke of on his show. 50 euro/pp

This place is unique, unlike all the osterias and pizzerias you sit in long tables with Total strangers and you all share a set menu family style. The food is all meats from beef and pork prepared in different ways. Nothing fancy but tasty and large portions, especially if you have small eaters at the table. For me love it... More

Lonely Planet guided me, my wife and 20 yr old daughter to the door of this butcher shop on a hot day in June. I had the Super Dario for €15 and it was melt-in-the-mouth. We ate in the garden alongside locals and tourists. I will be back (although that's Arnie's line). PS. Jack said it was the best burger... More
