Pasta was good but we were given the wrong item initially. Dessert was a bit of a disappointment, maybe the gelato was better. Nice view of the water/

We weren't rushed and ate an early meal. The views are great of the gulf. The waitress was pleasant but not friendly. The meals were average but not great. I don't understand this restaurant #2 status but maybe we should have ordered pizza instead of pasta. Clams and mussels in tomato sauce were tough and chewy. We were going to... More

It was really tasty (rich and decadent). It almost tasted like a carbonara with all the bacon that was... More

We were only visiting Galveston for the day...and discovered it was hosting a Biker Festival! We found Mario's close to the beach. Arnold was a superb waiter! There were 7 of us, including 3 children. He brought out baggies of uncooked pizza dough so the children could be entertained while we ate our appetizers and waited for our entrees. We... More

Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to. Our waiter, Dillen, was incredibly attentive and friendly; he checked up on us regularly to make sure everything was perfect. Dinner and dessert were both incredible!

My girlfriend and I were enjoying a day in Galveston between the Seawall and Moody Gardens. Stopped in at Mario's for dinner before returning home. Wonderful atmosphere and great food. Even better for us, as we got ready to leave we found out our dinner had been paid for by another generous patron. We want to thank that gentleman and... More
