I know this is an Italian place, but go directly for the steak. The tenderloin on a bed of caramelized onions topped with fried pommes frites is exquisite. We went back a second time, the steak was so good.

As a foodie, traveling all over the he country to many top restaurants, from Charlie’s in Tampa to Mastros in Beverly Hills, Coles Chophouse in Napa Guidos in Santa Monica, Mario’s never disappoints. A great wine list coupled with a great menu selection! Fantastic.

Wonderful food, pleasant atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff and terrific owners who obviously care about all of these. Nice variety of dishes, all very carefully cooked and plated. It is pricey but well worth it, one of the best restaurants in Riverside.
