I stopped here for lunch because it had 5 Star reviews. It was incredible. Is very limited menu, pasta or pizza. I chose the pasta and it was outstanding. Also very reasonably priced, possibly a little too low if he is to stay in business.

We went because there were nine 5.0 reviews of this restaurant on tripadvisor but it was rated the 22nd best restaurant in Bandon. Granted there are some excellent restaurants in Bandon, but there certainly aren't 21 that are better than Dios. It isn't going to...More

Steve serves dinner twice a week on Monday & Friday, 5-7pm. We had his pasta dinner & he offered to make mine with veggies instead of meatballs; they were both delicious! He's also open M-F, 12-2pm. We went back for lunch & had the curry...More
