"There is no sincerer love than the love of food"
A lifetime of dedication to culinary perfection and customer service drives Patricia and Fabio Beggiato each and every day. Fabio opened his first restaurant, Sesto Senso, in 1994 which quickly became a destination for power brokers, politicians and food loving families alike. Ten years later, Fabio & Patricia opened the Darlington House with extended facilities for events and three floors for cocktails, dinners, private functions and dancing.
Darlington House was formerly The Childe Harold, a restaurant and bar institution where Bruce Springsteen and Emmylou Harris once played at the beginning of their careers.
