3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

We arrived here shortly after they opened at 5 since we had read how small the place was. We were the first people there and told to pick a table and then were given menus. We decided on some wine and an appetizer and then waited for someone to come check on us, We could hear several people talking and... More

Get there as soon as they open as this tiny gem does not take reservations and the do not have a huge seating capacity. They serve high-quality classic Italian fare at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended!

After eating a lot of seafood, we were craving Italian. We pulled to the shopping center and saw Mario's. A bit cautious as it was a small place. We decided to try it. Going inside, we were greeted with a wonderful aroma. Hubby got the veal scallopini and I had the eggplant parmesan. Mama Mia... so delicious. It is our... More

We were staying very close to this restaurant and decided to give it a try. It is a very small restaurant. The 2 servers work together wonderfully as they take care of their customers. We tried a variety of dishes from the menu and everyone really liked their choice. The salad was delicious but looked meager in size compared to... More

After trying to get in 3 times during the height of the season we tried again. No problem. We were the first to arrive. Small and cozy explains why it is difficult to secure a table when winter's visitors are here or during the summer when the beaches pick up. Our server was friendly, funny and on point. Two of...

We've been to Mario's a number of times and never been disappointed. This time was for our 30th anniversary and we each tried something new and loved it! Staff is friendly and attentive.

Truly a jewel of a restaurant ! Very small - very few tables. Outrageous food - wonderful service. We know it is said a lot but we had never been to this restaurant before and we were really treated like family. We will return again and again !!!

It's rare that my picky foody husband raves about a restaurant and uses the word terrific. He had lobster ravioli with alfredo sauce and I thought he was going to lick the plate. I tasted it and oh yes. So good. I had one of my favorite go to Italian dishes, eggplant parm. It was delicious. Not heavily breaded and... More

Went with friends, not our normal excellent Italian place. Server was far to lax. Did well but he could have cared less. Food was good but again could have been better. For the price and a short ride our normal place is so much better.
