It was hidden in a strip mall at the Dana Point / Laguna Niguel city limits. I had the lasagna followed by Brio's tiramisu. It was better than Mama used to make. I ate inside because of the summer heat, but there is a pleasant, sequestered patio outside where you won't be seen by passersby. It appears the Brio can... More

Celebrated our anniversary dinner here and couldn't have asked for better food or service. Our waiter Claudio went above and beyond. He is charming and hilarious! We had a five course meal which was over the top. The Filet Toscano was so tender and the Salmon Puttanesca was grilled perfectly. I hope I don't have to wait a year for... More

We visited with some family. Appateizers were very good. Had calamari and the baby clams. Main courses were good. Service good. There is a nicer one of these in Irvine that is more upscale.

My sister and I stopped here on our trip to Dana point. We had the antipasti platter and the penne donatello, both of which were fantastic. Claudio was our waiter and he was great! The creme brulee was a perfect finish to our meal, which had little cannoli chocolate chips inside (nice Italian touch to a French dessert.) Definitely a... More

We eat here quite a lot. It is just next to the Spectrum which has shops and theater. The food is great with its own flavor. A dish for every taste of italian.

Love this place! The perfect meal, ambiance, and service for my sister-in-laws birthday gathering. The owner brings decades of fine dining expertise to this gem of a restaurants! Tucked away in the Dana Point/Laguna Niguel neighborhood, it is far more warm and friendly than some of the pricier options nearby. My halibut was delicious!

Great food and service. Claudio was very friendly and attentive. We followed his recommendations and did not get disappointed. Spaghetti with meatballs is amazing.

We went with our two young children and they couldn't have been more accommodating. Good value for what they deliver, a nice bottle of wine, excellent clams in a delicious broth, delicious sole, wonderful desserts all delivered with friendly service and a pleasant atmosphere. Next time we are in the area we will be back.
