“Fine food steeped in tradition, clearly weighted with heart and experience. A place where you’re welcomed like family. And fed like royalty, with only the best dishes from our heritage.”
This is the mission and passion of the owners and staff – whether guests are dining out in the popular Dana Point eatery, hosting a special event at the restaurant or catering a gathering of family and friends in their home.
For starters, the Antipasto Italiano Platter arrives with an array of flavorful favorites – Prosciutto di Parma, artisan salame, fresh buffalo mozzarella, Tuscan olives, grilled artichoke hearts, roasted bell peppers and toasted ciabatta bread. A seafood aficionado? Try the Mare Platter which is made for sharing: Buttermilk battered calamari fritti, seared Ahi tuna and blue shrimp scampi.
The wood-fired pizza here is the kind of pie you sip wine with, reflecting on the old country while a hot steam of freshness rises poetically around you.
For heartier appetites, try the Filetto Toscano – Black Angus filet mignon medallions pan roasted and served with a sweet red onion, shallots, Chianti reduction and melted fontina cheese or favorites like the Rigatoni Casa Brio characterized by grilled chicken breast, caramelized onions, roasted garlic, baby spinach, cremini mushrooms, sweet baby peas and fresh basil topped with fresh buffalo mozzarella.
Brio Tuscany Grill has an incredible selection of fine wines (and a full premium bar), great nightly specials and the kind of attentive-yet-unobtrusive service that makes any meal that much more enjoyable.
Hosting a special event? Brio can accommodate up to 110 guests in a lovely space ideal for any occasion from bridal showers and engagement dinners to birthday parties and corporate events. Seeking a more intimate experience? Private Chef’s Tables are also available where chef prepares a special five-course meal for you and your guests.
