I was very surprised that this went from a top-notch family restaurant to what it is today the food was no better than a chain restaurant if not worse service was very slow charge top dollar for soda and only allowed 2 the only thing they still got going for them is the garlic rolls were still tasty

Nothing special. Went to try it since it's been around so long. Decor- early 80's. Food- my mom can cook it better. Service- best part of the meal. Bottom line- meh- skip it.

This place has been around for years, and at the same location, so a lot of people must think it is OK. Perhaps I am a bit spoiled coming from Philly, where good Italian restaurants are all over the place. Mario's, I'm afraid, would not make it in Philly. The food is OK - not bad - but other than...

First time for lunch at this unassuming Italian restaurant. Bottom line is the pizza was pretty delicious for Florida. The crust is thin but firm and crispy in all the right places. The lunch special pricing is for cheese only which works for me - it was just plain tasty. I got the garden salad along with the two GIANT... More

Great sense of humor and very nice guy. He was very busy but he stopped by the table to let us know he was the waiter and he would be with us shortly. You can't ask for more than that. Most places are poorly trained and you just sit wondering who is your waiter. The rolls and salad was very... More

Moved to the area a few mos. ago. Always wanted to try the place and we have visited the location so far more than 3 times. Prices are good and the food is like home. service is fast and the location is hard to miss. Pizzas are superb and the italian specialties are very good.

The portions are large. I had the eggplant parm & it was enough for two people to share. My husband has the chicken Marsala. Also a very large portion & the mushroom sauce was delicious. The star of the meal, though, were the garlic rolls. They were light & crusty & covered with garlic and olive oil. I'd never had... More

Seven of us visited May 19th to celebrate 2 birthdays. I did not get the server's name, as I did not pay the bill. That is why I included the date...she was a brunette. She was very attentive, informative, and friendly! I would highly recommend this restaurant for an evening out, or any special event!

Now there is so many Italian restaurants that they don't compete. There a good place to go if there close to home.
