I love this place since the first time I tried it. Great pizza. The service is ok but the food it's amazing. And the prices are accesible!

The waiters where very nice and welcoming, also the food was tasty, little too buttery but good... The only and big drawback was that both of us had diarrhea the next day, and we cant make out any other reason than this restaurant. Sad story!

My kids ages 7 and 10 and both adults enjoyed a wonderful meal at Don Mario. The pizza, caprese salad and spaghetti were delicious. The wait staff was attentive and welcoming. The restaurant and bathrooms were clean. We will definitely eat here again.

It seems people either really love this place or they are not fans, but it is one of our favorites. They make fantastic pizzas and pastas. The service is always great and have never had a bad meal. The pasta is always cooked perfectly and the sauces are great. It can be a little warm inside the restaurant during the... More

I ordered the calzone and it was great, I had pepperoni added to it. The size of the calzone could serve two! I was only able to finish half. Service is not so good.... Food definitely makes up for the service. Best calzone I've had in a while!

We came here last night and were very happy with our meal. The service was great and our waiter was very attentive. My boyfriend and I both ordered pizzas and they were around $170 peso each. They were really tasty and devoured by us with joy. We'd definitely come back.
