Pizza Mario in Surry Hills serves pizza as traditional (and tasty,) as they come. The restaurant provides a modern, relaxed setting in which to enjoy the wood fired cuisine, which is made using simple, fresh ingredients, based on the principles of the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana. This is a great spot for dinner and a drop of vino with friends.
It was fairly busy when a group of us came around a weeknight... and its obvious why. The food was really great, I liked the light crispy bases, and everything on the menu is quite traditional, simple and classic with only few ingredients per pizza, not like the thousands of stuff you see on pizza hut pizzas.
By far the best pizza I've eaten in Sydney, we arrived early as I know it gets busy here, and were greeted by a lovely french waitress. The setting is rather warm, and a little romantic so its a good place to take a date.
We had a Margarita pizza with Ham, and it was cooked to perfection :). There's so much hype about this place and I know why.
The Italian imported red wine was delicious, the salad fresh and yummy, and the service was quick, attentive and the bill was super cheap!
I've heard great things about the pizza and bad things about the wait to get a table. The restaurant was still fairly busy, but we came here close to 9 on a Wednesday night so there was no wait.
We came in a group of 7 and ordered a couple of calamaris, a salad, 4 pizzas, a couple of bottles of wine and an affogato each.
Sure, I was really hungry and would probably have eaten anything, but these were the best pizzas I have eaten. The food is simple, no-fuss and just really really good. I love that the pizzas weren't loaded with every imaginable topping.
The restaurant decor does lack a bit of personality, but with good company and good food, it's hardly a cause for complaint!
Its been two years since tyring Pizza Mario so thought it was time to revisit. Last time I was in so much shock when I found I couldn't get a Hawian Pizza that I had trouble concentrating of whether the place was good or not. This time around I knew what I was in for - traditional Italian pizza made under the principals of the Italian Pizza Association. It was a Monday night and the place was buzzing and the boys on the floor.... we'll they are so buffed, cute and attentive its hard to concentrate.... but back to the pizza. Nice and light, crispy, just the right amount of filling and a bottle of pinot gris to wash it down with. A great way to spend a Monday night when it was my turn to cook. We're now a convert....... and if you like Italian eye candy too then your in for a treat.
THE BEST PIZZA! Enough said! aw alright... Restaurant is quite nice with marble and,the logs inbedded in the walls. Good for dining with friends or someone special. Its located around the back of the St Margrets development on Bourke St overlooking the plaza which is pleasant as its not right on the street. The Service is polite and, efficient but casual and, the pizza oh the pizza. Authentic and, amazing. Try the Blue cheese & Raddichio, sounds weird but it is the best combination, the simple magherita is great too. They dont do weird tandoori pizza's either. They do take away too although at restaurant prices but worth it I impressed the inlaws with takeaways from here, they loved it! Now Nuff said.
I've been intending to eat here for a long time and only just managed to finally do it. The pizzas are amazing, the calzone was fantastic. There isn't a lot of vibe, you feel a bit like you're in a concrete bunker with windows. It was Tuesday night so no wait for a table at all. I do feel they are a bit overpriced for the size. Sure, they're great but it's pizza and I just don't think it should cost that much.
This is probabaly one of the best places in Sydney for Pizza. This is as authentic as pizza in Australia gets. Pizza Maria do a traditional style italian pizza with great quality toppings. However since moving from the republic to a bigger space the atmosphere has been lost slightly. The new surroundings feel like you are having dinner in a shopping centre but if you can look past this, the pizza is spectacular.
