Couldn't fault this restaurant it has a great choice of food and extensive pizza menu with a rustic relaxed atmosphere. We went for the Italian sausage gnocchi and pizza with onions pepperoni and jalapeños with a great bottle of White wine couldn't fault it. Extremely reasonable price wise too. If you want something rustic but with great Italian food here's... More

We felt really at home in this restaurant. Very good pizza cooked in a wood oven, very good tender grilled octopus. Real Italian tiramisu and real espresso coffee!

My husband and I have eaten here many times over the last year. I love their wood fired pizza, the flavor is amazing and I love the thin crust. Service was amazing, we enjoyed a nice bottle of Cab Sav to go with the pizza. Very relaxing

We ate dinner at this restaurant this evening and it was great! The waiter spoke perfect English and the prices were right on par with other restaurants in the area. The service was fantastic and prompt, to end our dinner we had ice cream which was just as good and way cheaper than Aldo's!

After reading all the great reviews here we were excited to have a dinner at Don Mario. It didn't turn out that great. 1. Waiters speak very poor English (in comparison to other cheaper restaurants) and don't really smile. We did not feel welcomed there 2. There are quite a few wines to select from but there was only one... More

We highly recommend Don Mario; had dinner there on a rainy weekday. What a treat - the homemade gnocchi and ravioli was delicious. So nice to be offered appropriate sized portions. Service was very professional yet polite and the food arrived amazingly quickly.

Very nice relaxed, friendly atmosphere, not pushy like so many in Playa del Carmen. Best pizza and Caesar salad we had in Mexico!

If you are looking for good pizza a a great price this is the place. The service was good. Food taste so good I wish I could bottle and take it home. Since I was on vacation from another state that was hard. The quality and service is just what you need when visiting another country. I would just like... More

I lived in Italy for 10 years, now I live in the US. Eating the pizza at Don Mario brought back wonderful memories. I have never been able to find an excellent pizza out side of Italy until now. Service is wonderful, we felt like family. Price is right, less than what you would pay one Avenue down. A must... More
