Had a wonderful meal here. The service was excellent. We had the lasagna, pollo baltino, stuffed manicotti and their special of a hand made shell that is stuffed. The homemade garlic bread was great. Their cheesecake for dessert was delicious. Not easy to fine as it is in a strip mall type of building. It is a must stop when... More

I've eaten here a half dozen times a year for several years and the food is consistently great. In addition to a full Italian menu Mascarpone's has frequent specials including a fantastic filet with pepper sauce, veal chops, rack of lamb, sea bass, Copper River salmon, and lobster ravioli. The service is relaxed and excellent and the owner Pepe is... More

visited this restaurant on a date nearly 20 years ago and enjoyed it but life got in the way of returning. Moved into a condo nearby and re-discovered this gem. Great food!

I have been eating here since the 1980s. Although the owner Pepe is Spanish, it is a great little Italian restaurant. I have never had a bad meal here, you really can't go wrong starting with the salad with home-made blue cheese dressing. My wife usually has a veal dish while I am a big pasta fan. It is hard...

Thanks to other reviewers of this place, I was able to delight my mom today by picking her up a slice of cheesecake. The guys at Mascarpones dressed it up for us with some whipped cream and berries. Amazing quality - like homemade with lovely graham crust. Too big for my poor mom to finish, so I had to help... More

We have dined here many times over a span of probably 20 years. You cannot really go wrong. As others have said, you will drive right by if you not aware of it because it is not a "stand alone" restaurant. Plenty of parking in the rear. Family owned. Anything will be good. Nice small intimate bar. Reservations would be... More
