Dario Gradi MBE (born 8 July 1941) is an Italian-born English football manager and former player, currently manager of Crewe Alexandra, with whom he has been associated for almost thirty years.

Gradi is notable for his 24-year first spell as manager of Crewe, between 1983 and 2007. He stepped down from his managerial role in 2007, handing first-team responsibilities to Steve Holland, and became technical director. At that time, Gradi was the longest serving manager of an English football league club.
