After moving to a flat nearby we decided that try the little italian place at the end of the road. We were always confused as to why it's always so busy, considering it looks so unassuming. We went for the first time and haven't been able to stop going back! The food is so tasty and perfectly cooked, it's not... More

Enjoyed the experience and was impressed by the service and good standard. The pizza was very tasty but I feel for the price I would have liked a little more ingredients. My friends salami pizza seemed light on meat.

I am Italian and have lived in the U.K. for over 15 years. I've never had a pizza like at Da Mario. Mario uses a wood oven which gives it that proper smokey taste. Ingredients are fresh, and you are allowed to bring your own drinks! Mario and the staff are lovely and friendly too. Only down side is that... More

Visited for the first time yesterday evening, after having read reviews, greeted warmly on arrival, offered homemade meatballs to start with garlic and pesto bread - yummy! Plenty of soft drinks available, but will take beer or wine next time as everyone else was! We knew about this beforehand, and were advised that we could bring our own! The pizzas... More

Frequent this place a lot and as well as their incredibly friendly service, their food is to die for. Been around Italy a fair bit and their wood fired pizzas are just like what you'd get in Naples! Authentic, excellently priced and will always leave you wanting to come back for more!

We went here on the strength of good recommendation, but overall were really disappointed. There was a white plastic tie in my mozzarella starter, the kind you tie a food bag with. I ate it and nearly choked but when I mentioned this to the waitress she said it was suppose to be there, to hold the cheese together. I... More

First time back to Bournemouth for two years and straight back to Da Mario's. Knowing how popular it is we booked in advance. Da Mario's is quite small so we immediately noticed a little makeover. The oven and counter have been moved a few feet back allowing room for a couple more tables, it also appeared somehow brighter. Other than... More
