Found this fabulous family run pizza place on TA. A short drive from our hotel. It is a very busy place. We dropped in and waited a short while for a table. Well worth the wait. Great service, amazing food. The best mozzarella in our starter - Caprese salad. Just perfect. Well worth a visit.

Very friendly place but it is quite small and always busy so either go early or book - or maybe do both! Best pizza base I've ever had in UK - compares very favourably with pizza in Naples. Well worth a visit.

We stopped over in Westbourne for one night and came across Da Mario through Trip Advisor - what an amazing pizza experience. The service was warm and welcoming and great value for money, you will not leave hungry. Fortunately for us we were early enough to get a table but I would recommend booking. The constant stream of people for tables and takeaways confirmed that this restaurant is very popular with the locals and visitors alike. The restaurant does not have a drinks license but worry not there are three places on the doorstep where you can buy reasonable wine. If you are a pizza lover then this is the place to visit - you will love it!

I have eaten here a few times with my family and also ordered take-away as the restaurant can get extremely busy. The pizza served here is good but it's the atrocious customer service. They know that they are popular and will be busy on the weekend, so basically do not feel the need to treat customers with any level of courtesy.

I booked an evening meal 4 weeks in advance in the restaurant, leaving my contact details, only to turn up on the evening to find that they were closed. Luckily El Gatto were able to accommodate us and provide a very enjoyable meal. Da Mario's need to stop taking people for granted, as there are plenty of equally good pizza restaurants around.

Busy as usual and you have to go early to make sure of a table. This time our pizza was quite thick and we prefer a thin base and will ask for it next time. However, smiling faces and a want to please is always an added bonus and their food is delicious!!
