Reliable food and delicious pizza with good quality chewy dough. Always busy at peak times so book table for Friday nights and weekends.

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.

This is my favourite restaurant in Oxford. It's rustic, atmospheric and the pizzas are OUTSTANDING. Proper Italian pizzas. I'm salivating just writing this review... (TMI?) Go there. NOW.

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.
