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

In a land of more Italian restaurants than Mexican, this place was very satisfying. Homemade pasta, good bruschetta, excellent lasagna and pretty good pizzas. Service was attentive and entertaining, (thanks Mario Vitali). 3 pasta dishes, 1 pizza, 2 Bruschetta, 2 desserts and 2 bottles of wine $2200 pesos. Nice that it's off 5th strip.

Adults and kids aged 6 - 13 all enjoyed their evening. We even chose to go back for our last night away. The food was highly enjoyed and all was eaten, the wait staff attentive, Mario was there both times and the hazelnut ice-cream... well we would have eaten it all!!! Well worth a visit.

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.
