I visit PdC 4x / year and always find a night for this place. My favorite is Linguini and Clams, but everything is great. Good for romantic night or family night.

We used Trip Advisor to search the huge number of restaurants in PdC, and there was Don Mario nearby our condo. We perused other menus on the way, and theirs was better, and generally better prices. We eat early, and are often the only patrons, so we don't know if the restaurant will be full later in the evening. Don... More

DELICIOUS. The owner is always serving the clientele and taking care of every detail. He is super attentive and funny. I went with my family also and we loved it. The food is fantastic. Even the simplest dish is delicious. I don't have any bad comments about this place only that I wish I could eat every meal there!💖

In PDC for 2 weeks and ate there 3 times. Service was excellent and food was very tasty. Our favourite appetizer was the Greek salad. A must have if you visit.

We arrived in Playa expecting to fall in love with local Mexican cuisine, and was quite surprised to walk away with an adoration for this Italian gem! We absolutely loved Don Mario, so much so, that we went there 3 out of the 4 days we were in town. The staff is so wonderful that by the time we left,... More

Serive was ok get here early because by... More

Quaint little corner resterant with great food. It's a bit crowded, they could use more space, but they work with what they have. The food fresh and delicious!
