We went a bit early to eat a pizza so we had to wait quite a lot. I appreciate they told us we had to wait as in other places they would cook the pizza with a cold oven, resulting in a bad cooked pizza. The service was very attentive and at the end they offered a drink to compensate... More

Good for special occasions with the family, or maybe for a business meeting. Authentic Italian food, with a good wine selection. Excellent service, nice restaurant (although not in such a good city area).

This is a family restaurant, and it's full most of the time. For families that want cheap Italian food for large crowds, it works perfect. But don't expect the best if you are looking for fine Italian cuisine for yourself or your couple. If you are not that exquisite, or not demanding quality for the connoisseur, you will be satisfied.... More

Italian restaurants abroad fall into two categories: the ones that are assertively promoting any of the real forms of Italian cuisine, and the ones that adapt themselves to the local idea of how an Italian restaurant should be. “Benvenuti da Mauro” stands in the middle of the road. Although it presents a few aspects of the former, for many others... More
