We visited Sardis recently for a family celebration. We were all welcomed by the fantastic staff who ensured that we had a fabulous evening. The food was delicious and plentiful together with the excellent wine recommendations. Thank you Salvatore, Frankie, Ignacio and Andrew for your excellent hospitality.

Just an old romantic !!!... More

Sardis is an unassuming restaurant set in a not so posh part of Darlington. The façade is old school with a shop front, net curtains, the interior in 80s décor - but do not be fooled; This is a lovely restaurant with its very own personality run by two Sardinian brothers. It simply does traditional Sardinian dishes, my wife is... More

We have been going to Sardi's for years and I have never had a bad experience. The food is always cooked to perfection and I can not believe the quality for the price (£10 for 2 course lunch!) Very friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. Cannot recommend enough.

Our favourite restaurant ever. Never ever disappointed. Staff are fantastic and food is amazing. When eating out in Darlington we would not eat anywhere else. If you haven't tried it, then do, you will not be disappointed.
