Mario's is a favorite Italian restaraunt in Palm Springs. Unassumingly tucked away in a strip mall, it features delicious Italian fare in large portions served by dedicated staff. Prices are low and atmosphere is wonderful, including patio dining around a fire pit.

Great food. Very ample portions of food with enough for second meal. Garlic bread is to die for. Fried zucchini is unbelievably good. Wine tasty and plentiful.

We have eaten at Mario's a couple times before, and were not disappointed this time. The service is excellent, fast and friendly. We loved the Greek salad, and the pasta ordered was tasty. The portions are very large. Highly recommend!
