Dario’s Trattoria at the Hanging Gardens

DARIO’S is a journey back to the Mediterranean. Inspired by the ethos of the Sicilian countryside, the elegant yet laid-back settings of our restaurants offer respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, ideal for everyone to unwind and to revel in the experience of great food.

On this culinary journey through Italy, we invite you into a world of traditional cuisine, made in our own unique style. All our sauces, dips, breads, pastries and pastas are prepared in-house from scratch, to ensure an authentic Italian experience. As always, we use the best quality ingredients imported from different regions of the Mediterranean, and we source the freshest home-grown produce locally.

About Chef Dario

Dario Dezio, chef and owner of Dario’s, is something of a pioneer for Italian cuisine in India. Passionate about the food he creates, he loves to see people enjoying the simple pleasures in life.

Dario has made India his home, whilst honouring his Italian upbringing: a passion for food, family, culture and effortless style.

DARIO’S offers a sensuous mix of delicious food, art, and beautiful surroundings.

“Dario’s is a concrete approach to creativity. I wanted to establish a restaurant where all of us could feel happy, expansive and inspired, where we are reminded of the beauty and culture of traditional recipes whilst remaining open to change, our own changing histories.”
