Like many of the reviews say, you see how well this is rated then see it's in a small strip mall and wonder, "is it really that good". Yes, it is. Small Italian place with wonderful good and great service. The meals were as good as I have ever had. Very reasonable price. The Chicken Carbonara was incredible, but everything... More

Mario's Italian restaurant I'll give this a 5 star rating because I have been here about 6 times now and never had a bad meal or experience. The owner is there working / cooking and talking to guests. I had tonight the penne arabiatta with sausage. A little spicy but so so good. I left there and watched the sunset... More

The place was not busy and yet the wait staff was slow and confused. They couldn't even remember if they brought us our salads. The food was average with the pasta being over cooked. My chicken cutlet was too thick and had a hard fatty spot. Over all not impressed and would probably never go back.

This is a small restaurant with about 8 tables and 4 seats at the bar. They do not take reservations so you may have to wait - but it worth it - the aroma permeates the air from the moment you walk in - my nose was in love with this place before first bite! They serve traditional Italian dishes... More

8 days into my vacation and I was tired of eating out and craved for something a little like home. We were greeted and seated immediately. It did take a little while for someone to bring us our menus and water. The menu promised a good variety and dishes sounded good. But, could this little unassuming hole in the wall... More

We have eaten here a million times and I have never ordered anything other than the seafood boulliabaise! It is that good and huge! Great service! But it's small so make sure you have a rez especially on the weekends.

We liked the food and went a couple of times. Some dishes seem very authentic Italian, some others americanized (like most places). They have a selection of wines from Italy and the US so a pretty good variety. The only downfall to this place is that it is very small.

Never in the area but saw on hotel map a few suggested restaurants close by and decided to take a drive to check out a place for dinner. Mario's is in a rather small shopping center and it is also small but oh so big on delicious Italian food. It is prepared fresh and so many options for a tiny... More

This is a hidden gem! The sauces they use in their dishes were amazing. Very cozy and they take great pride in their service.

Mario's is situated in a small shopping mall, on Gulf Blvd in Madeira Beach. I have passed it many times and never noticed. However I went to a book review at the local library and asked about a good local restaurant. Several people recommended Mario's. Small, relaxed, made to feel welcome. Very pleasant server. Many very interesting meals to choice... More
