Tend to go for Indian food but fancied a pizza for a change and tried this place. Great and reasonably priced food served in clean and inviting surroundings. Don't be put off by stairs that lead up to it. They do not help a place and owner who deserves to do well. Please do not say there is no where to go in Downpatrick until you have tried here.

Great pizza, good price, nice setting. The owner is a good guy who works hard and is a good chef. Best pizza by far in Downpatrick.

since moving to the area i've been looking for somewhere that does really good pizza. This place doesn't disappoint, the dough is gorgeous and the toppings are amazing. The owner is really really friendly and goes out of his way to make sure everything is up to scratch for his customers. Really good value for money too :) Owner makes his own garlic bread too which is a nice change for paying out of the nose for shop bought stuff elsewhere, and it tastes so much better! Will keep going back again and again!

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!
