Friends took us to Dario's as a last choice; their favourite Italian restaurants were closed. Their most recent memory of Dario's was "not enough to eat for the price." They were pleasantly surprised and will give the restaurant another try. Four of us had tortellini, risotto, mussels and dessert. Portions were fine and the food well cooked and presented. Staff...

The menu has all the classic Italian dishes plus daily specials. We ordered an antipasto for (4) to share with the table. It included Italian dried meats, shrimp, provolone, olives, peppers, etc. Two ordered the veal limone & two ordered pasta. Everyone was happy with the taste & portion of their meals. Dessert & coffee to finish. The meal was... More

This is an old, family-owned business right next to the Italian Cultural Center. Just perfect for a relaxing lunch - I think the table of Italian men next to us were there about 3 hours. No rushing, just relaxing European style enjoyment. Great food and wine choices. Outside the city, but worth the journey.

If you want to go to a wonderful, old school Italian restaurant, this is it! Located in the Italian Cultural Centre it has to be good. I had pasta and my husband had veal Marsala which is not on the menu but they were happy to make it for him. Great for a date night or getting together with family... More

Having had good experiences in the past, I returned with a friend but this time I was very disappointed. Our drink order did not appear and we had to ask for menus The outside heater which was turned on did not work. Calamari was overcooked, the cream pasta had very little sauce and the attitude of all was lacking.

Been a few times for dinner but it is a little pricey. Been several times for lunch. Some of the waiters are not personable but still enjoy coming here. Antipasto platter has more variety then other places. Clams vongole is my favourite. My husband and friend ordered the pistachio pasta and said it was delish. Older business crowd at lunch.... More

Highly unprofessional owner who does not take responsibility for cold food and slow service. 2 meals came lukewarm, 2 meals came quite a bit later and they were cold. When the waiter was apprised she called over the owner who responded that it was "impossible" for the food to be cold - the kitchen yells at them to deliver the... More

The ambiance is nice but that's it....waiter with slicked back hair was not very personable, when asked if the pasta is made fresh he said no ,it was too much work !!!! Unbelievable for an authentic Italian restaurant!!! Needless to say I didn't order pasta ...I did order the chicken parmigiana, and it was decent ...look elsewhere

talyVancouver, Owner at La Piazza Dario, responded to this review

I'm sorry for the response given to you. It should have been explained in a different manner. We make the fettuccine in house as we have a machine that makes the long pasta and it is easy to disassemble . The other pastas are made for us, with our recipe as we do not have the space to have the... More

I have driven by the Italian Cultural centre endless times without realizing there was an Italian restaurant on the grounds. When I arrived, I regretted not dressing up in my Sunday best (although I still was presentable). I did not realize how lovely the dining establishment would be, expecting a typical Cactus Club or Earls casual crowd. I liked that... More
