After visiting the Covent Garden branch, I just had to go to the O.G South Kensington branch that Princess Diana loved so much. It was the perfect place to meet my favourite girlfriend after such a long time. I heard Princess Diana loved the pizzas here so I had to try.
First dish is the veg pasta, this was delicious. The pasta tasted fresh, I assume it was homemade, and it was so well-cooked. It was flavoured well and the portion was decent, very filling. Although it looks simple, the flavour was amazing.
The famous pizza.
When I first saw this, I was absolutely frightened, the sheer size of it and the amount of seafood was quite intimidating. Me, being the brave food warrior (lol), decided to tackle this head on. My fear was it would taste too fishy, too ocean-y. Thankfully, the chefs at Da Mario know what they are doing! The crust was crispy and the dough soft and flavoured. The tomato sauce complemented the seafood wonderfully. The mussels were large and plump, the prawns were juicy, the squid sweet and succulent. The best part was the large king prawns that were served in their shell, the meat was sweet and fresh and so delicious. The entire pizza was amazing. I would highly recommend you eat some of the seafood first before attempting to eat it in the usual manner.
Overall Da Mario’s was wonderful and it’s a place I love going to. The menu at Covent Garden and South Kensington are slightly different; if you want pasta I recommend going to Covent Garden and for pizza to South Kensington.
The service is great as well, the waiters are really funny and very sweet. They’re attentive and take care of you very well. Da Mario’s is highly recommended.
Till my next eat x
