The food is excellent, and the location across the street from Lake Ontario is wonderful, but it's the staff that make DiMario's Trattoria so special. Check it out.

DiMario's is an excellent, reliable restaurant in downtown Burlington. Food is always good, service is excellent, wine selection is great. They are also always willing to customize dishes to accommodate any food allergies. If you like Italian food, this is the best place in Burlington!

Have eaten at DiMario's numerous times as a couple and in larger groups. The meal is consistently excellent with outstanding service. They go out of their way to make sure you are happy with you meal and that you want for nothing.

This is a small restaurant, great food. When busy, it can be loud, and tables are close together, so be prepared if you want an intimate dinner. Two of us had the osso buco, and it is excellent. One had veal scallopini and one had...More
