While visiting my sister in Cividale, Italy this past May, we ventured down the road and stopped at this restaurant. It has a small dining room with a lovely outside patio. Mario's son, Marco, runs the place with his wife and kids. Everyone is so very welcoming the minute you enter. They carry the areas specialty wine, Schioppettino, and it is the best cab you'll ever have the opportunity to taste! The menu selections are many and every dish our party had was outstanding. We went back and asked Marco to just "bring it on" and each course was something to indulge in and treasure.

It's the second time I've been here and this time I brought along some friends. What can I say... everything was great. The very friendly and entertaining host brought us some crudo with asparagus and then some ravioli. Both dishes were simply yummy.....then I got a steak and the others all got the famous pork dish. Nobody was disappointed. The wines suggested also went down a treat as well as the sorbetto with strawberries. A very enjoyable experience once again and I definitely come back when I'm in friuli again!

I return almost every year to the Collio with my boyfriend to enjoy this landscape, atmosphere and wine. In 2006 we discovered Trattoria Da Mario by chance. This has been one of the best culinary discoveries of our lives. This restaurant is elegant but simple and very clean. The food is served/presented on attractive plates and the wines are served in a variety of glasses, depending on which wine you choose to drink. Our favourite meal combination is the seasonal "stinco" (roasted pork leg) and the exquisite Schioppettino red wine. All courses of the meal are offered and it is each time a difficult choice but fun. We know that we cannot go wrong. We discovered something even more delicious each year but the stinco is our blue-ribbon winner. The owner and his family are friendly as well as they are talented cooks. We will return next month in November 2015 to drop by, greet the family, eat and drink. Cannot wait!

We had lunch at Da Mario in a group of 13 friends traveling together. The restaurant is in the centre of town with a large dining area inside and a very nice terrace-garden area for al fresco meals and drinks.
Mario is very friendly and recommends daily specials which are freshly cooked. The rest of the staff is also very friendly.
The trattoria would have deserved a higher mark had we not felt that it was a bit pricey for what was essentially a very simple, though tasty, meal.
We were not offered a menu aside from Mario's verbal recommendations so we had no idea what to expect in terms of prices when the bill arrived.

Found this little pearl of good food on Trip advisor on the way back from walk in Bosco Romagno. Restaurant is cute and traditional in ambiance and food was surprisingly good.
We let owner choose for us, it was fixed menu and we were not disappointed.
Wine was very good, we had choice of three and the best one was house wine-which was cheapest but also smoothest. Definitely will go back if in area.
