We chose Cousin Mario's for our date night because we won a gift certificate. So glad we did. Our dinner was serenaded by two guys whose repertoire of songs spanned the 60's into some Beatles! Easy listening and made our evening special. Our very attentive server was Amy W and she deserved her tip! We chose the $39 for 2... More

This was our third trip to Cousin Mario's in the last 2 months. Each one has been a positive experience. Last night, there were multiple graduations in the area, and the restaurant was packed.

"Come Home to Cousin Mario's" is more than just a slogan, it is an Italian-American way of life. When you sit down at our table you know that we have prepared something special just for you. You know that you are going to leave full; full of good conversation, laughter, and of course, great food. That’s how any Italian-American serves dinner and treats someone who sits down at his or her table.

Things are wonderfully blended at Cousin Mario’s. There is the comfort of being "Home" the moment you enter. In the lounge, you will enjoy the warmth of the fireplace as you kick back with your friends. Whether you’re dining together in the dining room or entertaining a larger group in our banquet room, you will find all your needs will be met and all requests handled efficiently.
