I stopped there for lunch and had a good, large, thin crust sausage pizza. Not the best I ever had but still quite acceptable. Reasonably priced. Fast service.

Walked two blocks north of the tourist area and discovered this gem! It's seriously a great place to eat for a reasonable price. The pizza was very good and our server was great! They don't try to sell you stupid things while you're eating. Nice and peaceful. I highly recommend.

Have dined at Don Mario's several times over the past several years and have taken family and friends. What I love most about it is the varied menu that will please everyone in a large group. We have never tried the pizza because the pasta choices are overwhelming and so many to choose from. Everything is delicious and the service... More

Take a thirty second walk from the expensive restaurants on the 5th avenue tourist trap and you will find the best authentic Italian Restaurant in Playa Del Carmen. Don Mario's has a great menu and serves excellent food at less than half the cost of 5th Avenue. Great atmosphere, street dining and friendly staff, a must visit!

This is our second time to this restaurant - the service is great, its a family business, the 2 brothers are running the place. We love their pizzas - best in Playa, and i would say up there with best pizzas anywhere. The shrimp/orange pasta was a great treat recommended by on of the brothers. This is a good go... More

We had dinner here at twice; This restaurant is one block off 5th ave, ( and thus about half the price). We had pizza both times, and both were excellent. They serve Mexican Chardonnay, the good stuff, that my wife loved, and they have Dos XXX Lager on draft. The restaurant is set up for great people watching ...it is... More

I thoroughly enjoyed a pleasant experience at Don Mario Restaurante Pizzeria on Avenida 10 in Playa del Carmen. The service was very good and the people were personable and the pizza was awesome.
