Had dinner at Marios Italian during recent visit to Sandals Halcyon St. Lucia. Reservations are required and dress is resort evening attire which is strictly adhered to as we saw one couple turned away who were inappropriately dressed. We were promptly seated upon arrival. The restaurant has old world Italian written all over it in the decor, which gave an authentic feel. Once seated with menus an attendant promptly served us ice water, another came to take our wine order and then our food server came to explain the menu and take our food order. I must say I've stayed at other all-inclusives but Sandals has the best house wine selections (Robert Mondavi) by far! Very good! The restaurant has an extensive salad bar filled with many Italian delicacies, salads, olives, anti pastas, cheeses, meats, breads, pizzas, deviled eggs, etc. All of the food on the antipasto bar was fresh. My husband and I both enjoyed Caesar salads and other tasty treats from the anti pasta bar
prior to the main meal. There are several ala carte entree items to choose from....fish shrimp, mussels, scallops, beef, and of course different pastas and vegetables. Our meals were delicious! The seafood was fresh, the pasta and veggies cooked perfectly and the sauces were tasty and well made and everything tasted freshly made. Loved it. Soup was also available on the menu, though we did not partake. We both chose a dessert just to top everything off after our second glasses of wine. Overall I would highly recommend Marios as a must visit. Atmosphere was pleasant, service was attentive, food was excellent.
