Creative Italian Cuisine, Hendra Brisbane

Tucked into the leafy enclave of Hendra in Brisbane’s inner north, Mario at The Dining Room is situated in a gracious cottage style setting. Open and spacious with a modern interior Mario at The Dining Room offers personalised service, daily specials and generous, indulgent, creative Italian cuisine.

“When you love what you do it shows and there is little doubt that Mario loves to feed people. This is great suburban dining and quality, rustic Italian food served with the wit and panache of a devoted food lover.”
“A pioneer of Italian cuisine in Queensland, Mario’s style is traditional, while still being innovative with textures and flavour combinations.”

A true pioneer of Italian cuisine in Queensland.
Seasoned chef & restaurateur Mario Alfieri has been at the forefront of creative Italian cuisine for the past 30 years. The original owner of Nicolini’s on the Gold Coast, Mario relocated to Brisbane in 1992 and opened the award winning restaurant Mariosarti in Toowong.

Mario is old-school when it comes to service and hospitality, prowling the dining room to see that all are greeted like old friends and kept informed of the nightly specials.
