We have been at this place with our family just few days back and were really hungry after a full day travel. This restaurant have been recommended by our hosts at the b&b. The service was really fast, food was good. We have had seafood risotto, fried shrimps and squids, risotto nero, spagetti pomodoro and tagliatelle with shrimp. All was... More

This time, it was our turn to "loose". We went there because of the positive critics on TA, but why have so many written so very well about this restaurant? We had ham and melone as a starter which was good, but nothing more.Then we continued with a tuna fish carpacchio. Together with a bottle of red wine in total... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. It's only a short walk fr the leaning tower and the place is clean and spacious. Get the seafood soup it's delicious! The owners are adorable and very sweet. They even gave us free espresso and olive oil. If Andrea Bocelli can eat here it'd definitely good enough for me.

The restaurant is run by a family from Taranto, so there is Apulian influence in the kitchen. The fish we had was good, in particular the tuna steak ("tagliata di tonno") that I had. They try to have interesting wines. The menu isn't large, but has a reasonable choice. The prices are more or less aligned with current prices, but... More

We went twice to Mario's during our week's holiday in April 2014. Mario and his staff are lovely and welcoming. The children were taught some Italian (and so did the adults), the food was simple but good. The atmosphere made us feel at home and welcome. Would definitely recommend!

Went there after reading the reviews but was disappointed. Only one waitrees on a Saturday evening, so the service was poor. Food was ok for the money.Lacking atmosphere and decorated like a cafe. I think it is living on its past reputation.

Nice service, good food for all and good value of money. Food was amazing delicious, everything was fresh and simply prepared. The three of us, we ordered... More

We were trying to avoid the tourist traps close to the Tower etc, and stumbled upon Da Mario by chance. Having just spent time in Emila-Romagna, and being from Florida, we were missing seafood. We arrived a little late for lunch but they were very welcoming of us, and we were happy to hear lots of Italian being spoken in... More
