This place used to be an old reliable - not fancy but if you fancied a quick pizza it was passable and the staff were lovely. Now the place has changed hands and the food has taken a dip in quality and what really annoyed...me is that the people preparing the food aren't wearing masks or gloves. They've built a tower of pizza boxes around the counter so you can no longer see the food prep area but if you look around the side you can see what is going on. The last time (and it will be the last time) I picked up food I saw the person preparing it drop some chips onto the counter, pick them up and put them into the box that was brought out to me. We threw the food out and swore never to go back.More

Worst pepperoni pizza I've ever seen in my entire life. The 12 inch pizza my kids ordered had 9 pieces of cut up hotdog instead of pepperoni. Both my kids 8 and 4 immediately knew something was off and refused to eat it. My older...kid originally thought it had just gone bad. After he picked the pieces of (sneakily put under the cheese to hide it), it was obvious it wasn't pepperoni. The waiter insisted it was pepperoni and said "It's not hotdog, why do people keep saying it's hotdog", we're obviously not the first people to mention it. I asked if I could see a piece of it before it was put on the pizza, he replied "I'll check with the boss", and then never came back. I've given it one star as the kids enjoyed the pizza once the 9 pieces of sliced hotdog were removed.More

Myself and friends had a lovely pizza in Mario's recently. The placed saved us really as we hit Malahide without a booking on a nust Saturday night over Christmas. Service was very friendly and very prompt. We all had a pizza, a Pollo one, a...Margarita and a Pepperoni. They were delicious and we all ate well. The 12 inch were really filling, the base was light and floury like I love them and they were piping hot and fresh. The pizza and coke came in at well under €20 so not a bad deal at all because as I said we all enjoyed it. Sadly, I have to take a star off for the toilets. Dear God. They say you should judge a place by the cleanliness of the toilets. Well if that were the case this joint would be closed. They were like a poo crime scene. To be fair to the staff they can't be accountable for the state some disgusting customer left them in and I'm sure it was an aberration and far from typical. I repeat, the food WAS good, the service excellent, the prices decent. But my God those toilets will haunt me.More

Have been going here for 20 years and eaten pizza in NY and Italy and this is very nice pizza compared to average in Ireland. The staff are very nice to kids and helpful with a food allergy. The pizza is ready quickly for collection...or eat in. We had to collect for a party of teens tonight and the pizza was full of very good toppings, ready in less than 15 minutes. I'm suspicious of the bad reviews on this website by people who have only ever written one review on the whole website (jealous competitors?). Mario's uses fresh dough made with Italian 00 flour (see it in the store).More

Got a takeaway from here of 2 pizzas. I have to say they were the worst pizzas I've had I years! Very mean with the toppings- I eventually managed to find 4 pieces(on a 12" pizza)of cheap rubbery pepperoni hiding under the MOUNTAIN of cheese...and the other pizza was no better. Too lazy to even cut the mushrooms up properly- not a professional atmosphere. Only kids working in the place talking about their social lives when you walk in and stand on front of them they just ignore you until they're done having 'the chats'. Our pizzas were ready to take away but nobody told us.. until a staff member walked passed us to go to the toilet and it was on his way back- that he said.. "oh are you waiting on 2 pizzas?!" I'm not a mind reader!!! The place wasnt even busy!!! Avoid like the plague! I should have went across the road to the centra and got a goodfellas frozen pizza!!More

Came here with a friend and her new baby for a catch up! From the beginning the server obviously hadn’t a clue how to be kind. She sat us and walked past two, three times and didn’t even ask us were we ready to order!...Finally ordered, got the garlic bread which I had to say was pretty amazing! After that a bleedin disaster! Ordered sausage egg & chips. The egg was completely RAW in the middle! The goujons cane with no chips and when we asked if they came with chips we were told to “wait” while she went to read the menu! She didn’t even know the menu and she was the only server on the floor! Not that it was busy as there was only two of us there. A disgrace..More

I ordered the Carbonara and was greeted by what can only be described as an unholy mass of demonic matter. I cannot advice more for the sake of your stomach...STAY AWAY, unless you enjoy eating a still frozen bun on top of a burger that...horrid, that it made my partner contemplate whether he should vomit or call a priest for assistance because of the satanic slop he had just eaten!!!More

Absolutely horrific, I went here with my family and was absolutely shocked with the food and the prices sorry €3 for a can of coke with dirty glasses to match I think not ! I ordered lasagna and saw it being taken out of a...freezer and slapped on a plate into a microwave all the while they wore no gloves . My family ordered pizza which had fake pepperoni ontop and was made with no Gloves on , saw one of the pizza makers wipe his nose and continue make the pizza absolutely disgusting!! I really don’t understand how this place is still open and hasn’t been closed down . I would send a health and safety inspector in there ASAP!!!!!!More
