The first thing that hits you as you enter Mario’s small space is the heady waft of yeast from freshly baked dough (though it’s a little unfortunate that the badly ventilated open kitchen also leaves you smelling of your dinner - to avoid this you can eat in the al fresco dining area). The thin-crust pizzas are made to order, while the pastas are handmade. Don’t miss the chewy crumbed fried mozzarella sticks; creamy spaghetti carbonara; and wondrously fragrant thick pasta loops tangled with roughly torn chunks of pork sausages. Even the crème brûlée rises above the rest with a hit of lemon and toasted pine nuts. The regulars streaming in to pick up their takeaway boxes of pizzas tell the story.
