Lived in Oxford for 12 years now and haven’t tasted a better pizza. Mario’s always delivers with its stretchy cheese and top quality toppings. The calamari is also super delish.

One of my top places in East Oxford. Excellent Italian food in an old-style, homely restaurant with plenty of buzz. Gamberoni are an especial favourite. Pizzas always excellent, and do pick from the specials menu. Staff are super friendly and helpful. An absolute gem.

Very tasty pizza and pasta. Very surprised with the quality of the food. Price is also good. Expect queues and a bit of delay in the service, it gets quite busy. I would recommend for a good homemade Italian.

Had been told great things about this place and is always busy every time I cycle by. So I though it’s time to try Mario’s! The first feeling I get is of a restaurant that has been left to run exactly the same as it...More

When we lived in Oxford my husband and I would visit Mario's regularly with a crowd of friends. We knew most of the staff back then including Mario himself. We still recognised a few faces which was nice. We now have two children and decided...More

We had a variety of dishes - pizza, pasta, risotto, gnocchi... All were really flavourful, fresh and super healthy. As real Italian food should be! Portions are perfect. Would highly recommend the pizza, particularly Mario's. The red mullet pasta was lovely, the sauce was almost...More
