Found this place on trip advisor and thought we'd try it. Booked a reservation over the phone and 30 mins we were in and seated. Quirky, relaxed place with seating over various levels. Pizza oven is at the front so you can see the pizza...More

It's small, family-run and serves authentic Italian food. Best lassagna ever and garlic bread to die for!

There is definitely something for everyone at Mario's! It might not be a fancy 'fine dining' experience but the food is good, the atmosphere and staff are terrific, and the pizzas are sumoly wonderful!

I can totally forgive ugly service and poor front of house IF they offer me something special when it comes to the food. This place does not even try to offer good food and the service was just as bad. Insipid little dry meat balls...More
