We say…

Da Marios is a hotspot in Leeds’ culinary landscape, as it’s one of the most familiar fixtures in the city centre. The family-friendly restaurant can be found in the heart of Leeds, in the Headrow, just down the road from the Leeds Central Library, Leeds Town Hall, and the art gallery, as well as plenty of shops, bars, pubs and parks. It’s in an unbeatable spot for any kind of trip into Leeds, whether you work round the corner and want to experience fantastic Italian cuisine, or if you’re visiting and want to try one of the best restaurants Leeds has to offer.

Having recently been under new management, the restaurant has changed quite a bit since its establishment in 1976. The minimalist modern décor has updated this traditional trattoria for contemporary diners, and really allows the rustic, delicious food to stand out. The staff here are welcoming and helpful without being overly effusive, and don’t be afraid to ask for recommendations, as their passion for Italian cooking is immediately apparent. Da Marios has an intimate, family atmosphere that would be ideal for a slow, lingering lunch catching up with friends, or as a laid-back setting for a first date.

To start with, go for the home made fresh bread served with marinated olives, or the rustic, tasty minestrone soup with fresh vegetables and pasta. If you’re after something a little more decadent, you can’t go wrong with the pasta main courses of tagliatelle al funghi or a full-bodied spaghetti Bolognese. Da Marios is also famous for its crispy, freshly made pizzas, so make sure you check out the pizza with an unusual combination of duck breast, spring onion and hoisin sauce, or go down a more traditional route with a meaty calzone.

For an authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of Leeds, Da Marios should be at the very top of your list.
