My friend and I ate in Da Mario’s last Thursday and loved it. I had a voucher to cover an early bird dinner with bottle of house wine. As a strict vegetarian I have to be careful about what cheese I eat. Most of Da Mario’s non-meat dishes have cheese in them (pizza’s, or filled pasta for instance) I had emailed in advance to ask about whether the cheese they use is vegetarian friendly. While they didn’t advise about this specifically in reply, they more than compensated by being most agreeable to my ordering dishes/adapting dishes to suit my vegetarian requirements and I was delighted with this. I had the regular bruschetta (minus the brie) and this was a great sized portion and served on absolutely delicious bread with a small side salad garnish. My friend had the feta salad and loved it. The presentation of both dishes was superb. For main course I ordered a pasta dish. It was listed on their menu as a gnocci dish with mushrooms, peas and bacon in a creamy sauce, but I was allowed to order it with fettuccini and minus the meat and have to say it was amazing. The portion was a good size, there was plenty of veg and the creamy sauce was gorgeous. I had brought my own vegetarian cheese to sprinkle on top as Parmesan is not vegetarian friendly. For dessert I had the profiteroles and my friend had the apple tart with ice cream. Both were delicious and so beautiful that I took a photo to show my hubby afterwards. We enjoyed a bottle of house wine too and it was gorgeous – very drinkable. My overall impression is that they are very customer focussed, particularly the Maitre D who looked after us very well and is an absolute credit to the restaurant. The atmosphere is inviting and warm and the food was of a high standard. I am giving it a very high score that could only be improved by clarification on their menu whether their pizza/pasta dishes that hve cheese, are in fact made wth vegetarian friendly cheese. Will definitely go back & are happy to recommend it

Great restaurant with lovey food and staff. Fully booked when I was there with my husband and 2 children. Good deal for the children and good portion sizes for them also. Fresh pasta dishes and great pizza too. 1st time there but will be back. Staff very nice and we never felt rushed.

Recommend this place highly. My wife and I had a beautiful meal here from starters to desserts. Had not been here for about 3 years. New owners and staff I believe. Will not leave it as long again to return. Keep it up!

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.
