Meal was good and reasonably priced. Salmon Tartar and salmon carpaccio was very tasty. Pasta dishes were good too. Service was attentive and friendly. House white wine was bad but waiter took it back and gave us new wine with no problem. Nice outdoor seating. Recommended by locals.

The food was excellent and also the wine. The waiter was very polite and friendly. The dishes were very big (more then needed for one person - you can order one dish for couple). The only thing is that was a little expensive for pizza and pasta ( but if you only order one pizza for two the price is... More

Visited this restaurant twice during my stay at PDC and was really amazed of their delicious food, especially the pizza. Good prices and very good service. Will definitely come again next time.

The food was decent and reasonably priced, but our beer mug were dirty, and the kind of dirty that happens overnight, they had black filth in them. When I showed the waiter he shrugged and charged me for them . No tip, bad review.

Just got back from our 10th trip to PDC and Don Mario was still there and again the food was excellent. The best gnocchis... More

And even more excited that we were able to add whatever toppings we wanted. We went to don Mario's three times in one week just for the pizza. However, on the third visit the waiter... More

It was recommended by a local. My friend had raviolis, I had grilled shrimp. The shrimp and vegegtables were so soaked in butter I could not eat the meal. The Italian dish was very good. The service was OK, not great. If I ever go there again I will order an Italian dish. It was probably my fault ordering the... More
