Delicious pizza off the beaten path

Delicious authentic pizza and a great wait staff. Quaint atmosphere, not busy, great for kids. Ours loved the pizza margherita. Salad with fresh, mixed greens was large and full of vegetables.

Stopped in the other night for dinner. Had calamari and a pizza and the girls had pasta dishes. Pizza was good, calamari was above average, girls said pasta was good. Service was good and prices were respectable.

This place is 1 block off the main tourist strip 5th ave But it is well worth the detour, this food is cheaper and much better then you will find on the strip, and it is usually less busy also ---- Real fire cooked pizza, great pasta, great service, and a nice location.

One of my favorite pizzas in Playa del Carmen by far, other dishes like pasta and meet are very good. Service lately has been slow but I guess they are changing personal. Located on 10th avenue the prices are not as high as on 5th Avenue and the food is much better.

We went in a group of 8 people and we didn't wait long when our table was ready. At first we kinda thought the service wasn't great because of a few details including the fact that we weren't received with bread on the table, olive oil or any of those things that nice Italian restaurants normally receive you with, but...

The sauces are not puddling in the center of the pasta dish, they are well coated with enough for flavor but not so much that the pasta... More

We have eaten pizza here twice in the last two months. It is always good, the service is attentive and the food very good. The vongola is also very good and the calzone is one of the best I've had. Drink prices are reasonable and we enjoyed the open air, but covered roof ambience. We will return for more calzone.... More

4 of us consumed many meals here while on vacation. Food was always excellent! Husband really liked the pastas. Salafs and thin crust pizza were good. Sometimes service lacked and appeared abit unorganized which slowed the meal service .

Don Mario's is always a delight. We have been dining there for years and have never been disappointed in the taste, quality and presentation of the food as well as their staff. I recommend it!
