One of my favorite soups is pasta fagiola, but this place screwed it up. It was tasteless. The soup base was more like a watered down ground beef, tomato sauce mix. My visit was saved by good garlic bread and an okay meatball sub. I think this place can do better; hit or miss; hopefully on your visit it won't... More

This pizza from Mario, came out as a yummy surprise after so many disappointing places in Miami. A tasty break from our long walkes in Miami downtown. Highly recommended

We have been eating at Mario's for a few years. It has always been really good so when we decided to cater my daughter's second birthday for about 35 people we called them. They gave us a reasonable price and really great food. Two trays of baked ziti and five pizzas were enough to feed everyone and give us about... More

Right after we moved to Miami we started looking for a pizza place that made great pizza. We found it at Mario the Baker on Bird Road. We have now eaten there several times and have never been disappointed. The garlic knots are delicious, some of the pasta has been hit or miss. Go for the pizza.

Love this pizza joint. The food and service is always consistent. Stuffed shells are one of my favorites as well as the pizza.

This is pizza place in a shopping mall. We had really liked it when in Florida in 2004 and our kids only ate pizza. We returned last month for the first time in ten years. The pizza is good and the garlic rolls are very good. You will get fair value for your money here, but it is not a... More

It usually doesn't take much to at least keep me somewhat satisfied at a plain vanilla Italian restaurant, but Mario's did not meet even that low bar. Service and food were even more mediocre than the atmosphere. Not terrible, just blah!

Stopped by for a quick lunch at the Doral location. Instead of pizza, I was in the mood for a Chicken Parmesan sub. I didn't think you could mess up a sandwich, but this was the WORST one I've ever eaten. The chicken was over cooked and looked and tasted old. It was chewing, had a weird brown color, and... More
