On our way from Arizona to sfo we stop halfway in Riverside to refresh . We found this 10+ Restuarant called Mario’s. I will drive for special occasions just to be here , the ambiance the decor the food the service is amazing. We met the GM and he sure is an asset . Thank you for an amazing time.

Perfectly cooked and flavored salmon which is difficult to do. Tender and delicious. Flavorful salad with pistachios and goat cheese. Delicious bread. Good wine selection. Outstanding raspberry sorbet. Great grappa selection. Friendly attentive and non-intrusive waitstaff. So nice to have a meal at a place where you can have a conversation. To be perfectly honest restaurant had a musty smell upon entering. Not sure what that was about and if it was just temporary. Glad I didn’t leave. Oh... and I thought it was an excellent value for the quality. Less than $200 for two for bottle of wine, salads, entrees, two desserts and after dinner drinks.

One of the best restaurants in Riverside. Excellent meal and wine choices. We’ve enjoyed the fresh bread and everyone was very happy with their orders. Worth a visit!

The best experience I had in this restaurant was when we got chef Leone to be our guide, and provide us with the Chef's Meal. It was an amazing gustatory trip of delicate and delicious food paired with proper and equally delicious wine. It is the best, most sophisticated gastronomic restaurant in Riverside.

Super convenient to the Mission Inn. We got in without a reservation and were seated quickly. Server friendly but seemed to expect oohs and ahhss over every dish and exchange. Other than 15 min to get our wine, meal served at a nice pace. Kid serving bread/water was super helpful!

Nice salad with goat cheese. Our chicken and fish entrees were well prepared, but not exceptional. We’ll probably go back and try the pasta next time.
