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.

We found that restaurant 3 years ago by taking a walk away from the crowd as we usually do. We were 2 families with children and all the plates we ordered were very good italian food. 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

We were thrilled to find an Italian place that would masked us a pizza with pesto instead of tomato sauce and no cheese (food allergies)! 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

As I have stated previously I stay away from the restaurants on 5th Avenue as I have had some previous bad experiences there. Now Don Mario is a couple of blocks away from 5th. The family and friends took off on a Booze Cruise to Cancun so I agreed to take care of my Grand Kids. So I invited them... More

This place was great had such a great time and the seating and views were great. They had some of the best pizza I have ever had and I have had quite a bit of pizza and the wine list was very good. Very relaxed and just a great place to have a nice dinner and chill out.

Tried to go to La familia on Monday but were closed, had eaten at Don Mario's previously and thought it was good but not so much this time. The pizza Margurita was just cheese pizza with a couple sprigs on basil on top and the mushroom gnocchi tasted like gnocchi with mushroom soup on top. Just an average meal in... More

I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to others. Food was delicious n great location. The price is average compared to other closeby restaurants. However, food was taking too long to be served.
