After a terrible experience and another with us restaurant we walked over to Da Marco and sat down outside for pizza. We ordered two different types of pizza and hardly had to wait five minutes before the pizza arrived. It was hot, fresh and tasty....I would certainly go again.More

Stopped in on an early Monday eve. Great COVID protocol w/ sanitizer before entering restaurant, tables blocked off to ensure physical distancing. Interior warm and inviting. Centerpiece is the wood-fired pizza oven. Emily, the hostess and server, was friendly and knowledgeable. Many specialty pizzas or...create your own. Other apps and entrees on the menu, including specials. Extensive wine list, good beers on tap and many bottled beers to choose from, as well as a full bar. We opted for pizzas and they were perfect! The crust had the right amount of char, toppings all fresh and the mozzarella was what one would expect in Napoli or NYC. Husband’s Allagash Tripel was delish as was my La Fiera. We finished with some of the best gelato we’ve ever had..made in house as are most of the desserts. Come see why Pizzeria da Marco is MoCo & Bethesda’s best!More

Our family group of four had dinner at Da Marco. We shared a large Mediterranean salad and we each ordered a different pizza from the list of somewhat unique toppings and shared so we could sample the different toppings. They were all really good as...evidenced by the fact that we finished all of them. It's not your average pizza place and would recommend giving it a try.More

With about 15 pizzas to choose from, one of Da Marco's signature Neapolitan pizzas should hit the spot. We love the sweet taste of the crust and the brick oven style fare. The restaurant is spacious and updated -- unlike some other restaurants in old...Bethesda -- and has about 10 outdoor tables on the front patio to enjoy the weather. We prefer Frankly Pizza in Kensington, but Da Marco offers a more open dining experience.More

The service was great. We shared the Burrata salad and Americano pizza. Just the perfect amount of food for two people. Parking is close by.

Expected a small pizzeria and found a large and pleasant dining space with tablecloths. A group of friends frequent this conveniently located spot every week as the venue is pleasant, allows for conversation, food is authentic Neopolitan, and the wine list has a wide range...of unusually fine wines not available in most Italian restaurants, On Wednesdays these fine bottles of wine are half price! Best of all for me, the owner, Alessandro, was very kind and modified the salad I ordered to meet my low sodium restriction. It was beautifully presented and very tasty. Another friend on a different dietary regimen also received a wonderful salad that was more than satisfying. Wait staff were all attentive and filling glasses and checking on the patron's individual needs. Will return for sure!More

They only offer one size pizza it's too small for two but a little big for one. Great service and nice atmosphere just wish they offered more dinner options the menu is very limited.

We stopped here for dinner early on a Sunday night. We ordered a couple appetizers and a pizza to share. We tried the Marco’s balls: 3 golf ball sized meatballs with red sauce, and the stuffed peppers. The peppers were the mini size and came...stuffed with sausage, cheese and breadcrumbs. It also came with a delicious chili sauce to drizzle over the tops. The chili sauce had the right amount of heat and sweetness. This was our favorite. We chose the Marco pizza as our main dish. This was a 12” pizza with sausage, mushroom and Buffalo mozzarella. It was baked in the wood fired oven and came out perfect; some charred bubbles and delicate crust. They use the 00 flour from Italy which creates a tender not chewy crust. It was wonderful on this hot day, and it didn’t sit heavily in your stomach. The restaurant is very clean and has a great airy atmosphere. They have an impressive wine and cocktail menu, and a gorgeous patio. The waitstaff were pleasant and attentive. The prices were very fair for the quality of ingredients that you are getting. Would highly recommend this to friends and family if they are staying in the area.More

Had a takeout pizza for lunch. Pizza was tasty but would have liked more toppings. Seemed thrown together quickly with less than great care. Still was tasty. Nice ambiance

We ordered take away pizzas. The pizzas were ready on time, nicely packaged, The crust was good and tasty. Kids loved this upscale version of pizzas versus too often greasy one A delivery service would be nice as it is not always easy to park

I could not answer this question, because I've never looked for gluten free products. Just give them a call. I'm sure that they will tell you.
