The pizza is second to none!!! I would recommend anything off the pizza menu - all of it is incredibly tasty! The coffee is also really great. The owner was very friendly and the atmosphere was welcoming.

A really lovely experience here.

The restaurant space is enough to give you that homely feeling. I sat in a corner, by the window. Snugged between bigger tables, it was lovely.

The wine. The food. Orgasmic!

Cannot wait to come back.

Best pizza in Knysna, friendly staff and cosy atmosphere. Their pizzas are always juicy with enough cheese. Be sure to book before your visit.

Perfect place for a breakfast alongside the water. All components of the breakfast was cooked exactly as requested and we also did not had to wait long for our food.

A nice cozy coffee shop in the heart of Knysna waterfront. The place was full of people and it tends to be quite noisy but the service received was good. The menu offers some food Italian dishes and prices are very competitive.

The waterfront in Knysna is where you find the hub of Restaurants, and Cafe Mario was my favorite.

They serve delicious pizzas and garlic bread. I tried one with Mozarella, rocket leaves, onions and chicken and what a wonderful pizza it was, also they serve fresh garlic and chilli prepared in their kitchen.

Also the host was really wonderful, and it was the best pizza I had in South Africa.

And that was the only pizzeria I found in South Africa which serve Oregano and not black pepper.

Lovely restaurant, great decor and vibe. We order focaccia and a pasta each. They did forget the focaccia and the food did take a while to arrive, but it was worth the wait. The waitress was very apologetic. We had the Puttanesca and Pasta Aurora, it's the best plate of pasta I've had in my life.

Very tasty food, incredibly attentive staff and thoughtful atmosphere. A new favorite and must visit in Knysna especially if you are looking for wheat free pasta and pizza options. Consider booking in advance for dinner.

Very happy we decided to eat here. The smells coming from the food around us was so delicious and we were not disappointed when we got our pizza, even split it as we were sharing. The base was thin and crispy (which for gluten-free can be very tricky) and the toppings were amazing. The meals come with garlic, chillies and parmesan. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere was great. Went back the following day for more. And a third time during our 5 day stay in Knysna.

Wonderful service! We called in our order in advance. They waited for us at the door and as soon as they saw us they started taking our food to the table. It was awesome. I had the cheesecake for pudding which was really nice. Tasted authentic. They didn't have any cocktails on the menu though... I think that might be a nice addition but their food is fantastic and really well priced. Proper Italian cuisine.

Cafe Mario's is consistently good, with very friendly staff along with a relaxed and informal atmosphere. They have been making great tasting Italian grub for decades now. However, when it is season and half of South Africa decend on the small town of Knysna, be prepared to wait at least an hour for your food. It is just too busy. My advice would be to book a table for after 20h00 (Assuming you are going for dinner), things will have settled down and you won't wait so long for your delicious pizza! Great work Gennaro!
