Only a few pre-decided menus available, the steak I chose was small and half of it was fat, despite very expensive... Service lacking and staff unable/unwilling to understand our requests and - complaints. Visit only this place if you are really starving!

We had lunch there prior to our visit to Hiroshima. Well placed, the welcoming is friendly. We had a small table upstairs. Very good food, believed we were back in Italy. Nice decoration. May be the choice is a little bit limited. We were served fast which is good also when you have kids. We recommend.

We were there for dinner and it is a really beautiful location. The service was very friendly and attentive. The food was very good and quite authentic, only the size of the servings was a bit small for the price. The only thing that reminded us that we were not in Italy: the beer was served in white wine glasses... More

I went to Ristorante Mario with my father for lunch and we had a really nice time there. The atmosphere was so cozy and the food superb. Service was great as well and our waiter was so attentive; he helped us to find our bus.

Great looking restaurant, close to Peace Park - on arrival we were seated and menus produced. While our waiter was very polite, he was quite busy on his own serving the ground floor tables while it appeared other staff were working on a party upstairs. This unfortunately led to delays in service. The food itself was delicious and the ambiance... More

Awesome decor. Accommodating (you may sit and talk for hours). Delicious breads and Pasta and a tiramisu to die for. It's just a bit on the pricier side (not too much though). 3 beers , 3 mains , 1 salad, 3 desserts. About 150 USD.

This is a wonderful place, right across the street from peace park, the food is very good, and the staff was nice as well. It would be a good idea to make a reservation for lunch or dinner. Otherwise you might have a bit of a wait.

We had a good lunch including a very nice salad, good bread, good pasta (choose from 9 different pastas with either (shell)fish or meat), a tasty desert and coffee or tea for less than 1,700 yen. Just across the peace memorial. Open until 14.30. Very good choice.

Good Italian near the Peace Memorial Parc. Cosy interior and friendly staff with english menu. We had our concierge book a table in advance but not sure that is needed. We had the avocado bruschetta with gorgonzola sauce, the cheese and raw ham and the raw ham salad as starter. Main course spaghetti with tomato and fresh mozzarella and vongole.... More

The restaurant is located just in front of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, we went for lunch there are different set menus but at night there is an open menu, for lunch there were no pizzas in the menu which we found rare for an Italian restaurant, the pasta was ok but not great, service was fine they have English menus...
