This small Italian pizzeria makes all its thin-crust pizzas to order and even the pasta is handmade. The rustica pizza with tomato, cheese, Italian sausages and button mushrooms is popular and there are a few pizza biancas (white pizzas, made with olive oil instead of tomato sauce) on the menu.

Pizza as good as anywhere in Singapore

That's right - compared with the top pizza places here, Marios is on par with the top places - Pizza Bella, Cugini, Riccioti.

Something changed at Mario's since we'd been there last. We used to go quite often, but with being spoiled for choices for good Italian fare in the area, we branched out.

We were at Pizza Bella and Pasta Bella when they opened, and are regulars there as here. We were regulars at Spizzico in UE Square, though better at pasta than pizza until Chef Mino left; we haven't been back because if I'm having Italian, I want an Italian on-site, and, we get a weird vibe from the greeter, who is nice enough but, dunno...

When we went back to Mario's a couple of weeks ago I was amazed at how good the pizza was - it's better than before and on par with any other place I've been in Singapore.

The service, while it was always good, has improved. The prices are more than reasonable. The food is excellent. And better choices for desserts than some other places.

You can't go wrong with Mario's. But don't tell anyone.....

And re some of the sour reviews here with nasty comments like "expat infested" and the like, well, these people don't know Italian like we Italians do. A lot of Mario's customers are Italians, that should tell you something. I wouldn't give much credence to an Italian reviewing Singaporean food, nor vice-versa. But with any place or anything, sometimes it depends on the night, everyone and every place can have an off night, and I've been to Mario's often enough to know it was good before and has gotten better.

Hey - all these places are good, and so is variety, and so is having choices.

Good on ya Mario.

We decided to give Da Mario a try this week and was extremely disappointed. Pizza was tasteless and bad. They were only interested in hard selling their most expensive items to us. When we didn't make their intended choices, they started providing lousy service. No prompt in serving drinks even though the waiter was standing just beside our table (we even had to remind several times before we got our drinks) , no more friendly greetings and after paying the bill, they didn't thank us for dining there. Money can be better spent elsewhere.

I dropped by for dinner with my wife to give it a try after having walked by many times over the past few years. We had a proscuitto and melon starter, a pizza, and a pasta. All were pretty mediocre. The staff were friendly but things took a while, even though it was a Monday night and the restaurant was quite quiet. We also had to remind them a few times to bring things. There are so many better places to go for Italian that I just can't recommend going here. It's not worth it.

So, Da Mario is really one of the more authentic Italian restaurants that I've been to. Not a big fan of Italian food, I would actually consider revisiting this restaurant with my overseas friends but the service if not for the lousy service. As there are a lot of other Italian restaurants in that area, I believe there would be one that is as delicious and has much better service! It's really not that difficult to beat the standard of service in Da Mario anyway. We spent $40 each as the bill came up to $155.

Our experience is very similar to all the reviews that I read on this site for this particular restuarant.  Pity we did not go through them before we visited.  Over-priced, very poor service and food that promised a lot more than it delivered.  With so many excellent restuarants around, this is surely one to miss.

Worst restaurant in Singapore

My friend and I came to have a relaxing dinner and stumbled upon De Mario. We sat down and ordered our food, at which point, the restaurant was 1/3 full. 

We were given some breadsticks to start, which we found to be stale. When we tried to fill up the side dish with olive oil / vinegar we found that it was full of water and was unclean - when we let the manager know he poured the water into a plant and gave it back to us.

We received our starter (Carpaccio di Manzo) about 15mins after ordering, and found that it was under seasoned but edible. After finishing this, the empty dish was not taken away but 20mins later one of the mains (Ravioli al nero di seppia) arrived and finally the dish was removed.

The plate was generous in proportion, however after 5mins when the 2nd dish hadn't arrived we decided to share and quickly found the pasta was completely raw. We enquired about the 2nd dish, but the waiter never came back to us. After waiting for another 20 minutes we further asked one of the female head waiters where the dish was. She was very rude and suggested we just finish our dinner and do not worry about the 2nd dish - we told her that we had been waiting for over 30 minutes for it and asked where it is and yes we still want it. She then informed us it would take no longer than 3 minutes as the chef was putting it on a plate. 15 minutes later we enquired again about it, the female waiter then yelled at us and said they had a power outage (which occured after she said the chef was plating it, and it only went on for 3 minutes) and that they were still cooking it now.

We told her not to worry about it and ask for our bill where mid-sentance she decided to ignore us and go to another table. We asked for the manager of the restaurant and in his direct words he said "get out of here!". We were not rude at all, we were asking for the bill after waiting over 45mins for a dish.

We will NEVER again visit or walk anywhere near this restaurant. ALL the staff are completely hopeless and the manager is the rudest person I have ever encountered as a customer in my life. 

If you do not want to ruin your night, stay away.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
