Although not well-versed in Italian cuisine, we enjoyed the meal here tremendously. Great server with personality, attentive assistants, yummy chewy bread. Penne Lorenzo and pork chop special tasty - especially the green beans. I'd visit again.

We have been here several times, and always enjoy it. Servers do a good job of explaining options. All 3 of us thought our dishes were VERY good. Will definitely come back. Kid-friendly here is for kids old enough to sit quietly at a table; not for screaming infants.

The Pasta is really homemade!
Ristorante Da Mario's pastas are homemade. I had the gorgonzola gnocchi and it was as good as when I had this classic dish in Venice. My husband had the lasagna and it was the classic preparation - hearty, flavorful, everything you look for in a lasagna. We want to come back to try more of the pastas.

I GO FOR THE GNOCCI!
Whenever I start thinking of gnocci, my mouth starts watering and until I get the Gnocci with the Gorgonzola sauce, I can think of nothing else!! I hear the mushroom raviolis are good.....maybe one day, if I can just get over the gnocci

This never disappoints.
We're so fortunate to have such a good restaurant close to home. The menu has lots of variety and the food is always well prepared and nicely served. The broccolini is especially delicious. There were four of us, all ordering different things, and we thoroughly enjoyed each of our meals.

Da Mario is "Dalicious!"
Food was excellent! The house made gnocchi were perfection....just like my Nonni made! Our waiter was great recommending a dish off the menu for my husband who could not make up his mind between two dishes--seafood cannelloni ...delicious as well. We travelled from San Mateo to this gem of a restaurant and we will come back again and again..it is worth it!

Excellent homemade pasta...
I've never gone wrong here... if you're in the mood for pasta and looking for dinner in Saratoga, try this place. Much more reasonably priced than other restaurants in Saratoga... The gnocchi is a particular favorite... good wine selection too...
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice location, excellent food!
Had an enjoyable night out without the kids this time. The restaurant was rather quiet being it was a Monday night. The food was very good, my only complaint is that they advertise they charge you $3 for every additional basket of bread and quite frankly the bread basket is nothing too fancy. I think that brings the restaurant down a bit in my mind... I would have given an outstanding rating if not for this.

I found Ristorante Da Mario by using Google Maps & entering "Italian restaurant".
RDM came up in lovely downtown Saratoga & after looking at the menu & reviews online I decided this was a good place for my friend & I to meet for lunch. Neither of us had been there before. Parking was easy with a lot directly across the street. We sat at a window table, the staff was friendly and the food was excellent. We both had salads along with our main courses (the gorgonzola gnocchi I had was delicious!) and we followed it up with desserts and cappuccinos. My friend asked for a red wine recommendation and the Sangiovese selected by our waiter was excellent. I am so happy to have found Ristorante Da Mario and am looking forward to going back soon.

We had a very nice dinner.
We had a very nice dinner. The menu was heavily "pasta" influenced and we are not big pasta eaters - however the Veal and Seabass we ordered where both very good and reasonably priced. Good wine list, though not outstanding. Overall a very good experience.

Wonderful food, wine...I suspect
Wonderful food, wine...I suspect the server was new ,not very knowlegeable..BUT, was astute enough to bring over a veteran so we were well taken care of.

Family Get Together
This restaurant is exceptional. We have dined here several times and every time was a great experience. The food is to die for. Try the Portobello mushroom antipasti. Heavenly!!! There isn't a bad pick in the place. The food will send you to Nirvana. The service is quick, attentive, friendly and professional. Great place to impress a date or business associate. This restaurant is on my top list to keep coming back to dine. I recommend it to my friends and associates.

We will definitely return to this lovely restaurant. It's cozy, the live music is terrific, the food is really good, and everyone was attentive. Excellent experience.

Great Dining Experience
I had a great time at Ristorante de Mario. The food and service was exquisite. The ambiance was great, and the music by Fernando Lezama was beautiful. He did a great job of setting the mood. The carrot soup was my favorite.

My husband and I enjoy this restaurant for a great Italian dinner experience. We have visited it twice, and are impressed by the variety of items available and quality of the food.

Reason to repeat
By virtue of the experience, I would definitely return to this restaurant or recommend it to others.

Second chance a success
My wife and I returned to Ristorante Da Mario a month after a less than ideal experience, where my entree was served a good twenty minutes after all the other guests finished eating, and was not what I ordered (I had asked for veal parmigiana, not on the menu, but presumably easily made since eggplant parmigiana and chicken parmigiana were available choices). Without asking me, I was given veal marsala with mushrooms. The saving grace was the entree was excellent- so I returned to order this same entree, and try to figure out how to make it myself. Again, it was excellent, and so was the Caesar salad that preceded this entree. I also loved the tartufo desert. We were happy with the efficient and pleasant service, as well.

I can't wait to return. The food, wine and service was excellent! We had a window seat and it was lovely to have a view of downtown Saratoga.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food yet again, I've come back again for an anniversary.

After a dozen visits, I have still never been disappointed. This place is great.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always a great meal!
This place never lets us down. Always great food, great service, and a great time! I have never found anything on the menu I haven't liked. The specials are always delicious, and the desserts are among the best. Definitely will keep returning to Da Mario.

Even with a limited by the glass wine list, they didn't have our choice. So we would recommend you bring your own bottle.

One of our favorite Italian places
We always enjoy our dinners at Ristorante di Mario. The food is consistently good, there is usually music, and the waiter really knows his wines! We had a relaxing family dinner, never felt rushed, and stayed for dessert (not to be missed)!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, nice atmosphere. I would definitely return.
