My group held a lunch meeting at this restaurant and the food and staff were superb. They have a delicious chicken parm plate and great desserts. A great place for dinner or happy hour they open at 4pm daily.

This was definitely a solid Italian place in Dana Point. I took the kids here with me and overall, the pasta was fresh and delicious and the wine list was superb.

When visitors came this week we wanted a new restaurant and so I looked online for recommendations. This led us to Brio Tuscany Grille. We were wowed with the quality of the food and the very reasonable lunch prices. The pasta tasted freshly made, portions were generous, and everything was delicious. No wonder by the time we left the restaurant... More

We absolutely love this local Italian restaurant. It has one of the best bars in Orange County...with live entertainment many nights during the week. The food is exceptional with many standard and specialty dishes. It is place you can enjoy your meal in a casual and friendly environment with outstanding service.

Just returned from Tuscany and we wanted to extend the feeling of the trip.Thought this would do it as reviews were great, but it fell short for us. . Food was ok, but nothing spectacular. Think the thing that didn't work the most was the ambiance. Very open floor plan with room for music and dancing among the table area.... More

We had one of the most enjoyable meals we have had in a very long time with the staff of Brio. We selected our wine and then turned the dinner over to the service staff. They selected each course and it was delightful. Fantastic experience.

Nice place known for music and dancing and food. Also, over 45-70 year old singles place. Can get crowded but can be fun too. To bad the bar area is so small.

We eat here every time we come to town and are never disappointed. i particularly enjoy the Brio salad and the Wedge salad. The spaghetti with meatballs is rich and flavorful and they make excellent pizzas. Haven't really had anything here we did not enjoy.
