Warm and inviting. Diverse menu. Good sized portions. Fair priced for the area. Nice wine by the glass selection. Overall a solid meal in a comfortable room with good service. No complaints.

Absolute hidden gem that you wouldn't expect in a shopping plaza. I chose to come in on a whim for a glass of wine on a summer evening and was pleasantly surprised. My server, Keith, was attentive and charming from the get go, and highly knowledgeable of the menu. Started with a glass of sauvignon blanc with bruschetta served on the house. The wine list covered all bases and all glasses are served as large 9 oz servings, if you're interested in that sort of thing. Otherwise, the food is outstanding so either way you won't be disappointed. My entree of choice was the handmade tagliatelle bolognese, which was not only scrumptious but evoked a sense of elevated coziness. Very satisfying! Prices are a bit steep so be warned, but typical of Darien, CT. The waitstaff was friendly and I definitely plan on coming back soon to see Keith and Jose. Thanks for great experience, Cesco's!

Bread pudding to die for!! Chris out waiter was attentive and pleasant. A hidden gem in the rough. Located in Stop and Shop parking lot, so plenty of parking. Sandwiched in between Aux Delices and Coromandel. Delectable dishes and the ambience is inviting and reminiscent of Tuscany Italy

Went here recently with a large group of about 40 colleagues. We reserved nearly the entire dining room. They offered us a wonderful menu with many selections, about 5 starters, 5 entrees and 3 desserts. For a group of that size it was pretty remarkable they would offer so much choice. And, they pulled it off with great service and great food. Outstanding. The octopus starter was nothing short of amazing, and I am an octopus fanatic. The scallops were perfectly cooked, and beautifully presented. Everyone at my table raved about the food. The service was friendly and attentive, the food was served hot and was beautifully presented. I could not have asked for a better 40+ person dining experience anywhere. I look forward to returning with just my wife for a lovely romantic dinner.
