Mario Mare offers a relaxed al fresco atmosphere with imported rattan dining furniture from Bali. We know you will love our pizzas which will be delivered to your table piping hot from our wood fired oven, imported from Modena, Italy. While enjoying the fresh sea breezes and sounds of crashing waves you can begin your dinner with proscuitto and melon or a mixed Toscana appetizer. Follow that with a plate of gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce or penne arribiata with seafood. You have a broad selection of grilled main courses which include lamb or pork chops, a beef rib eye or scampi. Delicious panna cotta or tiramisu, paired with an espresso, provide the finishing touch to a truly memorable dining experience in a relaxed Mediterreann atmosphere.
