“Among the best pizzas ever eaten”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

We had the Da Marco pizza which was crispy and delicious, as well as two other different ones all as good. The meat is excellent and the wine list offers a large choice of local wines, like the Madiran and the Gaillac or even a basque wine that we never tasted before and which was excellent (Irougezy). The dessert was chose was Keylime tart which was as good as in any of the best US restaurants were we had that tart before. All the menu at a cheap price. The service was average because too slow, the only bad point.

“Good food, horrible service”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

We ordered a pizza and it took 1 hour and 13 min to come, no explanations or apologies. We got charged for a bottle of water we didn't order. Asked for bill after long wait for pizza and took over 30 more minutes to settle.

“Cannot visit Lourdes without visiting Da Marco”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

I visit Lourdes every year for many years now and no trip is complete without a visit to Da Marco. Casual dining, good value, great atmosphere. Delicious pizza's and pastas.

“Good fougasse, pizzas and pastas”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

This pleasant little restaurant is always pretty full at lunch and dinner hours. Service is friendly and prices moderate. Try the fougasse à l'ail, a kind of thin overroasted bread, crispy and flavoured with garlic!

“Reliable but getting expensive”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

I have visited this restaurant regularly. It's the sort of restaurant that offers the best of both worlds: dependable, fresh cuisine and sparkling, enthusiastic service from a family owned joint.

Since I was last there in 2008, the service is as good as ever, the pizzas are first class and the ambience is still comfortable and relaxing.

What has changed is that the restaurant is no longer the competitive value it was before. Pizza prices are maybe 50% up on what I was expecting, making it a relatively expensive option at lunchtime.

Talking to locals, later in the week, confirmed our impressions and hinted at better value to be found elsewhere in the town.
