Nice atmosphere. We were only one of three tables. The "cook" should have NEVER plated the chicken parmesan and our server should have NEVER served my wife's meal. The chicken parmesan was SO overcooked that it was BLACK on the bottom!

First time to Mario's, and it was good. Wine was reasonably priced, food was good. Liked the Caesar salad with out croutons. Bread was good, but not great. Didn't have dessert. Parking is easy. Service was okay.

the food and service are consistently good. Recently I ordered the stuffed salmon special and I swear it was the best I have ever eaten. I also love the coconut cheese cake!

The food was very good but the server was slow and did not get the appetizer orders correct. Not a bad place to eat if you have more than an hour for lunch. Also, not many options for gluten and dairy free diet restrictions.

We ate at Mario's last night and really enjoyed our wine and food. The pomodora was very good and fresh. Husbands salad was dresses perfectly. Reno's food prices are pretty high so the meals were very reasonable for the area.
