Excellent meal for a special occasion. Everything was perfect. A bit pricey but good for a special celebration.

Adds to the wonderful variety of ethnic food choices in Iowa City. Gourmet food at higher end price but still reasonable. Fresh and delicious appetizer and main course. Good wine choices to compliment. Relaxed and romantic atmosphere. Good and helpful service. We might go again!

Darren Sita's showed itself to be a wonderful restaurant, with excellent service by Jessica and delicious food. Prices were reasonable, the wine list offered a reasonable selection a good prices, and the food was delicious. The lobster ravioli was served as homemade pasta in a slightly spicy and very lobster-ey sauce.

The best thing was the appetizer with fresh mozzerella, it was very good. The bread, while hot, tasted like it was from a pillsbury tube. We ordered the Veal, A steak, and a Fish dish that was supposed to have scallops. The veal was burned, the fish had no scallops, which they changed their description from smothered in scallops to essence of scallops. Seriously? The worst part was that we were seated in a booth whose view was on one side a stapler and white out, and a computer screen, and the other side was the kitchen door. Nice! For $120+ I expected a lot better.

We have eaten here several times, today for lunch. Everything seems freshly made, from the rolls to the pasta to the sauces, etc. There are always new dishes and we end up trying something new each time and enjoying it. Chef Baroncini does a great job. In Iowa City this is our go-to place for good Italian food.
