We ordered a meat lovers pizza and a pesto chicken pizza. The size of a large is good. The meat lovers was better than the pesto which seemed pretty dry. I was not a big fan of the crust and I felt the sauces were pretty bland. I would say that I have had much better pizza and would try... More

Last minute 1 night at the coast, and we needed an early dinner quickly. Its in a shopping center with tacos, donuts, and a restaurant recommended by our hotel. We chose Marios for a casual atmosphere and patio seating. I had a meatball sandwich and it was delicious. Fountain drinks were out of order, so we settled for canned soda.... More

Marcia our server gave us real New York Italian service. Her recommendations were first class as was the food. The chicken sardinia was different (chicken rolls containing mortadella, spinach and artichoke heart and served with a mushroom and brandy sauce), the pizza was tailor made and the lasagne excellent. Some of us managed to find space for canoli - excellent.... More

Visiting the Newport Beach area on vacation and needing some Italian food we found Mario's on a computer search. Mario's is caual and small, seating 25 people maybe, but we were amazed at the amount of take-out business they handled while we were dining. If the locals are going there to get their take-out that is a good sign. We... More
