Best Italian food to be had in the neighbourhood. Yes, it's very busy and can be noisy-- but that's a sign of a good Italian bistro. Service was friendly and fast -- they aim for a high turnover here with a long queue forming outside some nights, so do make a booking. Try the garlic or herb bread to start,... More

Have been coming to Broadbeach for 20 years and up to 3-4 years ago, ALWAYS dined at Mario's.......great food, great service. Then they started cooking pizzas out of a different kitchen and everytime we dined, the pizza would arrive 10 minutes before the pasta, or vice/versa. We also thought the quality of the pizzas had deteriorated (for the price) as... More

Mario's is very nice Italian with a seafood twist. They offer nice serving portions of pasta with other main dishes to accompany (such as seafood platters). The food was nice and the service was prompt. I was quite amazed how fast the food was served given the restaurant was at capacity. Definitely worth a visit if you're feeling like good... More

We do not live on the Gold Coast but we have been going to this restaurant a couple of times a year for the past twenty years. The food is always good and the service is friendly and efficient. It is one of those restaurants that is so consistent that you can confidently take guests and know that you won't... More

We had dinner here with a large group of 11 including kids. We were seated quickly. Menu is great with lots of choices and they have a kids menu as well. Our food came relatively quickly after ordering. The food was well presented, very tasty and good portions. The staff were very friendly and funny too. Overall a great family... More

A little disappointed with Mario's. We waited 10mins to be seated; 15mins to order a drink via the drink waiter for our table; the meals we ordered took approx an hour from when we sat down. They were okay, but not delicious unfortunately. Overpriced for what it actually is ... a upmarket cafe!

Marios, it is what it is!!!! Great food, amazing Pizza..... the entre pizza bread is perfection and the garlic on it will offend your partner for weeks. You don't go to the Gold Coast and not eat here. It might have once been the best Italian on the Coast but now its just a staple and probably one of the... More

MMMM yum. We had a great meal. The service was fast but not pushy. It was a Tuesday and the place was full and had a great vibe. Big serves so save room for dessert
