A real gem in Covent Garden true Italian with lovely specials and great service. Essential to book as few tables but well worth it.

Not a very big restaurant. It is runned by a family, both father and son are there and serving andoverlooking it all. The a la carte is typical and good italian dishes. This is not a pizza place and it is not a tourist trap, it is a small restaurant with very decent food at reasonable prices. We tried the... More

Perhaps we're a bit spoiled by the plethora of good Italian restaurants in Toronto but we felt di Mario's didn't live up to its reviews. My husband had the spaghetti with seafood and I had the penne with sausage. In both cases the pasta was rubbery and over-cooked. The tiramisu was very ordinary. That said, the service was excellent and... More

Lovely small restaurant, always busy. Reasonably priced for London. Food was delicious. I only wish there more meat options to choose, being a meataholic.

I visited Da Mario with my family and we couldn't have asked for more. The food was stunning. We shared a selection of four starters, which were all beautiful, and the seafood linguine and sea bass were particularly good from the main course menu. The staff were fantastic; they were attentive without being overbearing and were so helpful, polite and... More

We booked a table for 5.30 as we were going to the theatre. The food was lovely; very tasty. The portion sizes were very generous and the service was very efficient. The prices were also reasonable!

Met some friends from Australia that we had not seen for years. They requested a 'great Italian' and Di Mario's did not disappoint. Nice greeting as 5 of us walked in off the street and a table was ready for us in minutes. We had a number of shared mix starters which were really good. Three of us had the... More

We felt so welcome. Service from start to end. In this little cozy restaurant there was such a nice atmosphere, good service and excellent Italian food. Good well temperate wine. We can really recommend this restaurant. But you have to make reservation most days.

The concept of this restaurant is "tapas for Italian" and works out to be a fantastic combination. The service is amazing and the staff is extremely warm and welcoming. Their small plates are very well portioned so that you can share multiple with whoever you may be with. The food itself is great as well, with their carbonara being on... More
