We arrived late during the lunch sitting but the restaurant stayed open for us and we are so glad they did. Our family if 4 were superbly fed, excellent value and a truly lovely place. We'll be back when we're in Newcastle again. Within easy reach of the station for those traveling in that way.

What a lovely, small and friendly Italian restaurant in the centre of Newcastle. Situated just off the Bigg Market Marios is a family run restaurant. The food is lovely and fresh and exactly what you order.. The staff including the father and son (son is Mario) run a lovely friendly place. The prices are right with a nightly special and... More

Four of us dropped in for dinner one evening and the place had a friendly Buzz going on. You can order off the menu or choose the specials, all our meals, lamb, chicken and steaks were good, well cooked and tasty and very reasonable too. Would recommend.

Me and a friend dined here after having a busy day of work and shopping. Was a very nice experience, food was amazing, staff were very pleasant and attentive, surroundings could do with a bit of a revamp but you can let that slide when the meals were as tasty and filling as we were served. I would advise however... More

Visited Mario's on Friday night to start off my Grand Daughter's Hen weekend. Having looked on Trip Advisor for restaurants near House of Smith (we were visiting from Aberdeen) one review in particular made me think this was the place for us. My other grand daughter made the booking and they were really helpful. We had a lovely meal at... More

We visited Marios on a rainy Saturday afternoon after we were recommended by a friend. We were very warmly welcomed and almost immediately shown to our table.I cannot fault the service and food we had and all at a very reasonable price. This is a lovely small family run business and we will definately return

Visited Friday for happy hour at 6:30pm. Managed to get a table even though it was busy. Food was delicious, service good and house wine very nice. We both had pasta which was cooked to perfection and the sauce was plentiful with lots of content. Reasonably priced. Service pleasant and efficient. Great little independent restaurant - nicer food than some... More

This busy family run restaurant is an always reliable choice for good Italian food as opposed to the indifferent fare provided by the chains that otherwise proliferate over British city centres. The menu offers a sufficiently broad choice to appeal to most palates and is accompanied by a decent wine selection at affordable prices. Portions are generous and the ingredients... More
