We had such a warm welcome and great service from Emma-it was only her second day. Our pizzas were very fresh and delicious. We loved sitting on the terrace at this little gem Can’t wait to come back and try the coffee

Great brunch place and coffee! Eggs Benedict with salmon and Avo toast were fantastic. Cappuccino and Espresso like in Italy. Very friendly staff and Dario is a hands-on and attentive owner.

Well this was simply average. Sadly the outside deck is situated next to a pub which, let’s just say - is for those members of society not able to afford a drink anywhere else. As for the food, a fairly ok chicken salad and as...for the incorrectly menu-spelled jalalpeno burger - give that a miss...More

We stopped for lunch at Darios, had the most sublime Italian food, spinach ravioli was homade and amazing. The outdoor eating area is so peaceful under the trees and a very pleasant way to while away an afternoon.

Dario’s Café is the perfect place for a tasty breakfast, lunch & supper. The menu is simple but offers good choices including pasta, pizzas & the lemon meringue pie looked delicious. It’s a local hub & we love the lively atmosphere. Which is so refreshing...after our lockdown period. Service is efficient, friendly & this cafe offers great value for money. Dario is very hands on and always says “ hi & bye “to his customers. Nothing is too much trouble. Will return soon.More

6 or us came to Dario's for Sunday breakfast. We hadn't booked but they were happy to move some tables around to accommodate us. The food was brilliant and then service was friendly and very attentive. They even went the extra mile and sang happy...birthday to my father-in-law. We will be back.More

We popped in here for a late brunch. This is a simple unsophisticated cafe where nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent, tasty and well presented, the staff were attentive and endless smiles throughout! It is worth a visit just to read the...humorous remarks on the back of the menu! An excellent option and very reasonable, - breakfast for 4 with drinks 374 ZARMore
