If it wasn't for my brother and his fiancee, I would have never found this place. We went there for lunch last fall. I love the atmosphere. It is located in an old corner house. Very cosy and comfy. The menu is not what you would expect. It is quite upscale, but affordable. The menu is small but offers beef,... More

We ate as a party of six yesterday evening and as usual we found it hard to choose only one appetizer but knew that the other four courses would be quite filling. Chef Dario is a very accomplished cook and the menus are so interesting and flavourful. The price for the set meal is excellent and the service charming.

5 course meal, to include a bottle of wine. Menu changes based on what is available and the whims of chef Dario! Situated off the beaten path and a renovated home with outdoor seating available.

Awesome restaurant for lunch and dinner. The service is awesome. The Chef is the owner and he comes out to greet all the guests. The menu changes each day. He makes dishes that he can buy the ingredients locally. It's is mid price range and definitely an enjoyable place to spend with family, friends or business colleagues. Make a reservation... More

I was at Café Dario on July 8, 2016 and had a magnificent meal. I had the escargots to start and they were spicy and great. The tomato/chicken/vegetable soup was to die for but I didn't eat it all because I didn't want to get full. The garden salad was fresh and good. The rack of lamb was fantastic as... More

Have been driving past this unassuming restaurant for a few years and was always curious about what it was like. My wife and I decided to try it for our anniversary. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is quaint and the service is excellent. As for the food, it was delicious. The presentation was also very appealing. We sat down... More

The food is unique and not the usual menu items - more like the Iron Chef creations. Great food for the price - similar to Keg in price but not the same menu day in and day out, always something new to try.

I had the shank of lamb and it was great. Very tender well seasoned and just the right amount of food. The soup was delicious as was the desert I will... More
