Empty restaurant on a Sun night, super hot inside, turned on air cond for us- better, but still hot. Was told credit card machine broken; (i think it was working) had to go nearby ATM so could pay cash. Not an Italian restaurant - can't make a pizza. Their middle Eastern food is what they mainly do. 6/10 for that.... More

Disappointing. Always used to be the place to get a good pizza. The focus has moved to suit different cultures.

We went to Mario's assuming we could get decent pizza based on various comments. Not so at all. The bruschetta appetizers, as commented by others, where not particularly good. The pizzas lacked tomato sauce, thus they became quite tasteless. Toppings very not great either, and crust was spongy even with the wood fire own. Service was friendly, but that is... More

My wife and I over the years have been eating at Mario's but it has recently changed hands. Our meals were excellent and we both had Frajitas being Beef and Chicken. Mine were Beef and the best I have ever had. Service was friendly and efficient. We would certainly recommend and are going back before returning to Australia.

Found this restaurant just by chance, a five minute walk from the Equatorial Hotel. It had only been opened for four days but was such a lovely find. The view from the balcony is lovely. The food and service was also very good. (pizzas are delicious) Very reasonable price and the manager even offered to drive me and my partner... More

My family and I have been going to Mario's for 16 years, since we moved to Malaysia in 2000, and the food and service is always great. This time was no different, every staff member was friendly and attentive, even the chef who only passed us for a second to carry our pizza's to the oven smiled and said hello.... More

This place served the best salmon pizza I ever had. The crust was perfect too. Its slight a fancy restaurant so be prepared to pay a little more than the local Pizza house

There seems to be two menus here under one roof. We had the Syrian food under the name Halabi. Service staff were friendly. Food and drinks were delicious. Good vegetarian choices.
