Bardea, pronounced: bar-DAY-ah, is the Italian term for "the goddess of food and drink." The stunning, 120-seat restaurant utilizes ingredients from local Delaware Valley farms and purveyors, and features modern interpretations of traditional Italian and Mediterranean dishes. In 2019, Bardea Food & Drink received a semifinalist nomination in the James Beard Foundation’s “Best New Restaurant” category.
Bardea’s name captures the vision that co-owners Scott Stein and Antimo DiMeo had since conceptualizing the restaurant over 5 years ago. The result: an innovative Italian restaurant that captures the energy of downtown Wilmington and brings the community together through food and drink. Chef Antimo DiMeo utilizes ingredients from local Delaware Valley farms and purveyors, and offers a diverse selection of inventive dishes that celebrate Italian cuisine through reimagined interpretations.
