I have raved about Da Mario on a number of occasions, simply everything you could ever want in an Italian restaurant: family-run, great food, inventive specials, lovely wines, charming service, nice surroundings, good vibe, no hassle of any kind, and no serious damage to your wallet. Perfect. Unbeatable.

I'm spending most of my time in Dubai these days, and what I wouldn't give for a Da Mario out here. I've been reading the latest reviews just to remind myself of what I'm missing, and I couldn't resist chipping in again.

I'll be back in London in October, and no prizes for guessing where I'll be heading!

One of the better Italian restaurants in the area. Fair value but still not cheap. Two average starters, (very good) sea bass and seafood spaghetti for mains, and two coffees came to £52 (including service) Pleasant and helpful service.

Four years in London and still one of the best family-run Italian restaurants. Perfect for italian food lovers, food lovers, romantic dates and small groups of friends or colleagues.

Italian food is easy to make, some even say it tastes better at home, but because its easy it must be cooked to perfection.

I believe that an Italian knows that serving a good wine is everything.A real Italian restaurant will not dare to serve wine which tastes like diluted vinegar. A good Italian will offer a range of national wines. An excellent Italian will pick the best national canteens per grape variety.

Da Mario is an excellent italian restaurant. Da Mario has always managed to keep high standards throughout the years serving clean, tasty and appetising courses.

What i truly love about this restaurant is its menu which always has an additional daily special allowing the customer to try different, less renowned yet still beautifully cooked dishes.

The service it extremely welcoming and i would say very Italian. Professional, with good and clear explanations, sometimes accompanied with a joke and most important of all with an Italian accent.

Let's begin. An appetiser will lead you into the meal. My favorite are the cold dishes whether its a caprese or a delicate carpaccio di tonno.

The pastas are a joy to watch, to smell and you cannot wait to for them to be served. You will find yourself staring at the table next to you thinking "delicious". My favourite above all is the spaghetti al sapore di mare (seafood spaghetti). i truly recommend the tagliolini al tartufo nero (black truffle), the ravioli burro e salvia and the daily special because they are, as i said, fantastic.

As a second course, if you're still hungry, I would suggest choosing for yourself as everyone has different preferences. I had some very nice tiger prawns, a lovely fegato alla veneziana (not everyone's favorite) and a very tasty veal.

Did not really like the branzino unfortunately.

Dessert is always a strong point. What can i say "the simplest things are always the best". I cannot emphasis how breath taking the tiramisu is although i'm more of an affogato al caffè type of person.

Da Mario can promise a genuine and memorable experience. What it cannot promise is a table as it's either fully booked or simply full specially on a saturday.
