First and foremost, this restaurant is probably better geared toward Americans living in Denmark who are missing a taste of home or looking for some truly amazing durums vice a must-see for anyone visiting Copenhagen. Tio Mario's pitches itself as an Italian restaurant with a considerable selection of pizzas and some other obligatory Italian dishes. Most of the default pizza menu has some odd combinations that most Americans won't recognize, however in all my experiences they'll happily let you craft your own pizza. The pizzas are pretty consistent with New York style and can easily be folded with just the right mix of dough/sauce/toppings. The calzones are solid but again the options are cheese and ham/cheese. They'll let you choose your own if you ask for different ingredients. I was a fiend for mushrooms and bell peppers. The reason I frequented this place however, was disproportionately in favor of there durum rolls. In my six or so months there, the durum rolls were easily the best I had in Copenhagen. The shwarma and falafel were both without doubt the best durums. And unlike most of the other Kebab grilles I visited, this place used legit yogurt instead of mayo. I normally asked them to put some red pepper flakes in the shwarma purely because I liked the kick. The place isn't in the heaviest traffic but is definitely worth visiting if you're fiending for home a bit.
