We called to have a pizza ready for eat in. It was 30 minutes before closing. The person on the phone was a little on the rude side, advising me they would be closing in 30 minutes, I told him I would be there in 10 minutes tops. We ordered the Mario Special. It was very tasty. Crispy and fresh.

I see the other reviews, but we have had good pizza here...delivered or pick-up. Have only had pizza and salad, but did see subs, pasta and hamburgers on menu. Excellent thin crust, lots of toppings on the "carnivore". I agree that there is not much "atmosphere".

We've been eating here for years though it's mediocre pizza and very few other Italian dishes, in a scary neighborhood, with low prices and easy parking but often homeless and suspicious characters - panhandlers, drunks, homeless in and around the parking lot and the Quick-Cash on the corner. if you go, don't go alone and don't go at night!

I'm not one who is choosy when it comes to food and I will eat just about anything as long as it is cooked, but this pizza place leaves a lot to be said about good pizza. Average is a good rating coming from what I had. But my little ones seemed not to mind. I do not believe I... More

Who in the world is giving them good reviews? it must be friends and family of the owner, I am a 66 year old Italian born in New York, I know a little about pizza quality, and you will not find it at this Mario's, first there prices are ridiculous for a terrible pizza, if it was outstanding quality they...

Nailbanger Here Again; The Pizza here is average at best and not a good value compared to others in town. Their pizza is way over priced and I along with other commentator that reviewed this place, I am bewildered at the good reviews for this place? Try Oregano`s, way better.

The pie is thin, with the perfect amount of sauce--and cheese! Not much, ambiance inside the restaurant--but it's the pizza--that tastes like the recipe--comes straight, from New York! Toppings good. But we like extra-cheese! Take-out orders--do well at Mario's! They serve, the pizza hot and ready, for all to enjoy! One of our favorite, pizza places.

Loved it. I am a pizza hound and this place wasn't hard to sniff out. Friends have told me about this place so I gave it a try — it was killer. Simple thin crust pizza which I'm accustomed too. I also took a a few subs home for the family — all gave thumbs up.

If you are from back east and want a "slice" you must try Mario's Pizza. I'm from Staten Island, and I often just crave just a slice and a coke with ice. This place will not disappoint. I'v tried numerous items on the menu . . . the family likes the big 20" pie with pepperoni, I prefer the plain... More

I bought a 15.00 pizza that should have been worth 5 dollars. I was so mad at my self for walking out with it without complaining. It was barely a pizza, wimpy like one reviewer said. As I was driving home, trying to think of other things to cook because this was hardly enough for one person, I kept opening... More
