“Overpriced, mediocre food.”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Although this restaurant had gluten free vegetarian options the food which was a nice surprise, the food was far less than expected. The food read to be much better than it was, the beef pasta sauce my boyfriend ordered was essentially "ragu with beef cooked into it." My espresso tasted like it was made in an unclean espresso machine, and burnt. And the food was expensive, I could have made food four times better at home for half of the price. Although the staff were polite, helpful and nice, they could not make up for the poor food quality. Never recommend or return there unless there is a significant change made.

Dear Lisa
I am sorry about your disappointment , but I am not sure about the dish you are referring to (Ragu with beef into it) because we do not serve any ragu of beef in our menu.
the only dish with ground beef and marinara over linguine would be our Bolognese which I am proud to say every one raves about, and the price is only $21.00 for a healthy portion.
I am wondering if you were in the wright restaurant since there is two Italian restaurants on the same block.
there has been a lot of confusion lately with both restaurant starting with the letter D .
I am saying that because I see that you posted a review the same day on Will's 55 which used to be next to us and has been closed for a year?
If not I apologize about your bad experience.

“Nice Restaurant”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

We went here to celebrate my birthday. The smoked salmon and the escargot were excellent. I had the dover sole and my husband had the veal chop and both were very good. However the service was very slow. The atmosphere is very nice and our waitress was very good. The slow service was not her fault. We will probably go back and try it again after season is over.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Di mare is a charming continental restaurant in Vero beach. Fabulous food and an extensive wine list add up to a wonderful dining experience. Their rib-eye is great. Cooked exactly as i asked. My husband had the Zuppa di mare and it was out of this world. Defiantly will be back.

“A great place for dining”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Was taken here for my birthday and had a very enjoyable time with family and friends.
Arrived a little after our reservation, but as we had called ahead they had our table setup and waiting for us. A very cute place, comfortable interior, not overly bright and you could actually hear your conversations!
The wait staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, being as this was our first time dining here. We ordered as appetizers; Perogies, Scungilli salad and a Mozzarella and tomato salad. The tomatoes were not as good as they could have been, but other than that no other complaints.
I had the Shrimp Fra Diavalo and it was excellent, not too spicy and the shrimp (5) were large, fresh and firm. I was told the Grouper was excellent as also was the Bolognese sauce and the other specialty entrees.
The menu is online and if you're not into seafood or Italian, this may not be the place for you.

I WOULD definitely go back and enjoy this fine restaurant again!

“As delicious as before”
Reviewed 9 January 2014 via mobile

We came back to Vero after the summer and decided to check this restaurant out again. Food just as tasty as I remembered. Seafood in their signature dish , zuppa di mare, especially lobster and shrimp , were to die for. My husband ate every last bite of his rib eye. Will definitely come back with some friends pretty soon !!
Goat cheese salad is a must !!
