OUR FOOD

The first known Italian food writer was a Greek Sicilian from Syracuse named Archestratus. In the 4th century BC he wrote a poem that spoke of using “seasonal ingredients of the highest quality”.

This advice runs true even today and is the focus of dario’s cuisine.

Sometimes called the Queen of the Mediterranean cuisines, Italian cooking is widely considered one of the healthiest in the world. With the abundant use of a wide variety of vegetables, extra virgin olive oil which has been proven to reduce cholesterol, and the ubiquitous pasta which provides carbohydrates necessary to maintain energy levels, it is easy to have a healthy, balanced, and delicious diet.

At dario’s we place special emphasis on health and hygiene, and for the wellbeing of our guests all our fruits, salads and vegetables are meticulously washed in Mediclorex and filtered water. You can also enjoy the Italian classic – a freshly-baked pizza from our wood-fired oven, made in the traditional Italian way. Chef Dario Dezio has chosen a wide variety of recipes from various regions, yet his native Sicily crops up time and again as a source of inspiration.

Sicily, the southernmost part of Italy, shows traces of all the cultures which established themselves on the island over the last two thousand years. Although its cuisine is predominantly Italian, Sicilian food has obvious Spanish, Greek, Norman, Saracen and Arab influences. The ancient Greek god Dionysus is said to have introduced wine to the region, and it continues to be an integral part of the Sicilian way of life.

The Byzantines favoured sweet and sour flavours, whilst the Arabs introduced sugar, citrus fruits, rice, and spices such as saffron, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and black pepper. The Spanish brought discoveries from the New World including chocolate, maize and tomatoes, and local cuisine has always encouraged the use of fresh vegetables such as eggplant and bell peppers.

The emphasis at dario’s is on simple, fresh, home-cooked food, like that prepared in an Italian home, Cooked with LoveTM.
