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.

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

Very pleased with the warm welcome and genuine desire to satisfy clients. Lovely old couple who has been running the place for ever by the looks of it. Very good food and comfortable seating. Very quick service.

One week ago me and some friends visited Pisa to see the leaning tower. After a while we decided to find something to eat, and on Tripadvisor we found this restaurant on Tripadvisor! Mario (the owner), a positive, entertaining and energic man, took us in with open arms, he gave us the best service and actually ordered food for us,... More
