Love it. We were referred to Mario's by a restaurant owner in our former town and am so glad they did. Every meal we've had is always the same quality and excellent tasting. My favorite dish is Zuppe de Pesce! Happy dining.

We've passed this place plenty of times and finally decided to give it a try. There was a crowd waiting for takeout and the dining room was near full so it seemed promising.

The dining room is small and the tables are uncomfortably close together.

We ordered pizza. It was doused in sauce, so much sauce it oozed out with every bite. I wondered if it was an accident covered with cheese. I literally pressed down with my fork to push the excess sauce out. It got messy. In the end it might not have been that bad if it tasted good. The crust lacked flavor and the sauce was not very good.

There are too many good venues for pizza to return to Mario's

Been here several times in the past year after driving by it for years. Food is always good and it's not over-priced. Great place to spend an evening; good food and a bottle of wine.

As usual had fantastic meals and service! We always look forward to dinner out here. Tuesday through Thursday they offer a fantastic special soup, salad, choice of about 10 entrees, and dessert for $13.95.
