Love it. We were referred to Mario's by a restaurant owner in our former town and am so glad they did. Every meal we've had is always the same quality and excellent tasting. My favorite dish is Zuppe de Pesce! Happy dining.

We've passed this place plenty of times and finally decided to give it a try. There was a crowd waiting for takeout and the dining room was near full so it seemed promising. The dining room is small and the tables are uncomfortably close together....More

Been here several times in the past year after driving by it for years. Food is always good and it's not over-priced. Great place to spend an evening; good food and a bottle of wine.

As usual had fantastic meals and service! We always look forward to dinner out here. Tuesday through Thursday they offer a fantastic special soup, salad, choice of about 10 entrees, and dessert for $13.95.

This byob features excellent Italian and seafood dishes in a varied menu. Pizza dishes also available in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Decor is minimal and it can be quite noisy when crowded. Weeknights are better for noise. Discounts or special pricing usually available...More

One of the better pizza places around. We usually order pizza and antipasto or mussels which are always tasty. You can find coupons in the local val paks or magazines.
