Isn't in Laguna! We love Italian, and Brio Grille has the best Halibut we've had anywhere, and we visit many seafood restaurants. Moist, chunky and tasty is the best way to describe the large portion you won't want to share. Banfi Chianti goes great with the fish, Veal and Carpaccio. They offer a really good live band playing lots of... More

Our first time to Brio's and it was excellent. The prices are amazing and the choices are incredible. We totally enjoyed the green bean fries and the flatbed pizza in their wood oven was outstanding. Kevin the bartender explained their menu and we will return for dinner b

This was our "neighborhood" spot. IMPORTANT: This IS NOT a restaurant tied to the national chain. This is owned by a local Dana Point resident who is from Italy originally. Now that we no longer live in CA, we visit multiple times on each 6 month visit. The salads are fresh and very tasty. I love all of the pasta... More

We got shut out of our first choice for Italian in the neighborhood -- won't give you the name because it would only make the crowding worse there -- so we thought we'd try Brio. We were met at the door by a drunk on his way out who danced my wife around and said "Guess who will be eating... More

I have been going to dinner here for almost 20 years. Everytime I go, I am reminded how consistenty good the food is. And dishes are always served so nice and hot! Cannot go wrong with anything on menu. Servers are fantastic. Last time I went Claudio was my server, and, of course, made it a memorable and impressive night!... More

It was hidden in a strip mall at the Dana Point / Laguna Niguel city limits. I had the lasagna followed by Brio's tiramisu. It was better than Mama used to make. I ate inside because of the summer heat, but there is a pleasant, sequestered patio outside where you won't be seen by passersby. It appears the Brio can... More

Celebrated our anniversary dinner here and couldn't have asked for better food or service. Our waiter Claudio went above and beyond. He is charming and hilarious! We had a five course meal which was over the top. The Filet Toscano was so tender and the Salmon Puttanesca was grilled perfectly. I hope I don't have to wait a year for... More
