Visited Da Marios with couple friends and had a great night with the early bird specials. The food was fabulous and the atmosphere was good for a thursday night. no rush to move us and we were there for 3 hours! The new chef has definately made some great improvements on the menu and the Tiramisu is gorgeous! bill came to €25 per head including wine..some had starters and some had desserts... We will be back...

Went for an early dinner in Da Mario's last Sat for the first time and had a very enjoyable evening. When we arrived there was only about 4 people in the place but it was only 6.30pm, we were seated at a lovely table beside the window. Ordered the calamari and aubergine for starters and 2 pizzas with a bottle of the house wine. The aubergine starter was delicious but the calamari was a bit over cooked but still my partner eat it. Our pizzas were gorgeous and huge so only eat half and brought home half. We finished our meal with two lovely hot expressos, the staff here are very nice, overall quite impressed and will definitely return.

Looking for a quick bite on Friday evening so decided on Da Mario. Early Bird Special @ 19.95 available all week. Choice of 4 starters / 4 mains / 4 desserts, glass of wine and tea or coffee. Amuse Bouche to begin the meal was a nice touch. We both had mushroom brushetta to begin followed by pizza for me and chicken in lemon sauce for mum. Both piping hot and delish! Dessert for me was tiramisu and apple sponge for mum. Both homemade and to die for! Quick efficient service, Cannot understand why people werent queueing out the door with value like this! Just starting to get busy as we were leaving. This will definately be on my regular list from now on!

I ate her New Years eve with a friend and two children. I would normally travel to an Italian restuarant outside Celbridge but it was last minute so decided to stay local. The restaurant was quiet enough but it was early, I had a bruscetta to start which was lovely and I had a pasta witn smoked salmon for main, really good. The kids had pizza's of course, they loved them. The wine we ordered was an Italian red for about €25, it was excellent. The bill came to just over €110 for the four of us, that included garlic bread and two desserts so not bad, a little bit more expensive than other Italian restaurants that Ive eaten at.

We visited here for the first time early on a Thursday evening. As there was only one other table occupied in the whole place we were given plenty of good service from a lovely waiter. To start I had the Caprese salad and my partner had the Bruschetta. Both were fine, nothing amazing but nothing spectacular either and way overpriced. For mains I had the Lasagne and he had the Fettuccine alla Cacciatora. We also ordered a side of salad and chips. Both dishes came served on cold plates. Again my dish was ok, edible but nothing I'd come back for and his was a bit confused, wishy washy sauce, very garlicky mushrooms and not much chicken at all. The side salad was probably the best part of the meal, fresh and well dressed. €4 for a small portion of chips is a joke. Indeed looking at the full menu on menupages.ie I see that the price on most side and starter dishes have increased by 50c and the larger ones by €1. Our bill including 2 cokes came to €52.50 which I personally thought was at least €10 too much. This pleace really needs to have a look at it's ideas if it's to keep new custom.

We were regular visitors to this restaurant but Iwe don't go as often now. I'd agree with alot of the comments posted. The staff are very nice and friendly - no complaints. The pizzas and pasta dishes are pretty good. However some of the other dishes are poor enough. The starters are overly expensive and need rchanging badly. I recently passed by the place on a normally busy Sunday evening - it was empty. That may have something to do with the recession but it' not the only reason. Da Mario's is a nice local Italian - but it needs to shake things up a bit.

I live quite near to Da Mario's and used to go regularly. I felt it had fallen off a bit and stopped going about two years ago. We were stuck for a quick post work bite to eat and decided to stop. Very pleasantly surprised, attentive staff, good food and reasonably priced. We were in a hurry but will stop by again and linger. Good mid priced place, not spectacular but good.

This was a nice enough restaurant. Service was very good. Portions were not the biggest and my friend ordered the Caeser salad which I dont think would be given the name Caeser salad in any other restaurant. Overall though, I wouldn't object to eating here again but there was nothing spectactular about it either.

I have been going to da Mario's for 7 years now. The quality remains excellent, the food cannot be faulted, and the service is always top notch. Highly recommended.

Have been here many many times over the years, a favourite of mine. They do Italian food excellently, have tried quite a few pizzas and pastas and have never been dissapointed. Waiting staff are always helpful and friendly. Take-away is also brilliant.
