Whether dining with friends, business associates, a family celebration or a night out as a couple, meals at Mario Fazio's are always a hit for our family. Fresh Bruschetta and steaming hot wedding soup start us out. My husband had Chicken Parmigiana and I had Lasagna. Both were done to perfection,with hearty portions we enjoy as leftovers the next day.... More

We regularly get to Mario Fazio's. Lisa and her staff are excellent. The meals have always been great, and they give you a special treat for birthdays. The appetizers are great, staff is excellent and focused on the customer and the main entrees are superb. I even ask for arrabiata style pasta on occasion and its always to perfection. Great...

I frequent this business often! Food and service never disappoints! The customer is pampered and you will never feel rushed. Favorites are Lisa's salad, italian pasta with Sunday sauce, risotto, lemon chicken and much more. Generous portions! Garlic bread and slice of strawberry cassada cake complimentary with every meal.

We had a wonderful experience from the time we walked in the door and were warmly welcomed to the great service and awesome food. Then the topped it off with a piece of cassata cake on the house. I highly recommend for couples or a family gathering.

We had a luncheon here after my brother's memorial service. They provided excellent food and service in a private room. They packaged the extra food for us to take back. A very skilled and kind staff.

Found this little family owned place in Willoughby. OMG seriously the best food and service. Cod was perfectly done, melt in your mouth, not over breaded. Scalloped potatoes were awesome ( and I don't eat potatoes). Coleslaw (also something I don't eat out) was truly better than mine, you can't taste the mayonnaise, NO sugar and the perfect amount of... More

Met a friend here for lunch. Lunch menu medium priced Italian. Nice complimentary bread and olive oil dip. Had a lunch combo of two slices of Annie's pizza (spinach, sausage, and carmelized onions) and Lisa's Salad. I asked to substitute romaine for the mescaline greens in the salad and this was no problem. Enjoyed both, although the pizza was only... More

The service was exceptional. From the moment we walked in until we were out the door. Every person there makes you feel like the most important customer they have and that is how it should be done. :-) Next, the food. They gave us 4 small slices of their pizza complimentary before we even ordered. It came out with the... More
