There are very few decent places to eat in Downpatrick and we are so delighted that we now have De Maio's. This is a brilliant wee pizzeria/trattoria serving authentic pizza and a selection of other traditional dishes, all cooked by the owner Antonio. He's a really lovely guy, and he and Darlee always provide a very warm welcome. The pizza is the best we've had outside of Italy and we love the Napoli-style tomato pizza bread that Antonio does as an appetiser. The Tirimasu is beautiful and proper Espresso coffee - this place is the real deal! We have been several times now with friends and kids but looking forward to having candelit for two with a good bottle of Valpolicella! So many places are all style and no substance - this is a traditional family-style Italian place complete with red check tablecloths - but if you enjoy real Italian food, cooked fresh with love, then you've got to try here!
