This restaurant came recommended by my sister. We were meeting friends there and were about 10 minutes early. We were invited to sit at the bar and wait for our friends before being seated. This restaurant can "turn a table" in that 10 minute slot and have it filled the second it becomes available. We had tried getting a seat... More

Amazing Italian food!! The restaurant is very small, so we went around 8pm to avoid it being crowded. No one else inside while we ate! It was very good food! Our family of 4 decided to share two dishes. The charge you $3 to do this but the portion we got was perfect! Not too big and not too small!... More

We went on a Wednesday night about 8pm and had the place to ourselves. Beware if you have a party of 5 or more they add the gratuity to your bill, most likely due to the small seating area. The bread we got while we waited was fresh for sure - yum, hard outside very warm and soft inside. I... More

It's good. My wife, being of Italian descent, is very particular about marinara sauce and she really liked it - not too thick or sweet, she got spaghetti and meatballs. I expect she would give it a higher rating. I wanted to see more on the menu besides multiple preparations of veal and chicken, but as far as seafood there... More

The food and the background music say we are at a neigborhood ristorante in Italy. Only the diners' casual American clothes and the brown paper tablecovers show that we are not. The tomato basil soup was homemade and fresh without excessive cream like La Madelaine’s. The Caprese salad was as tasty as the winter-forced tomatoes would allow. The sausage antipasto... More

This is a very small place in a strip mall. The food is off the charts good and the service is wonderful. The owner/chef of the restaurant helps wait and serve and she is very freindly. If you want great Italian food, this is your place.

My wife and I dropped in for a couple pasta dishes. Penne with sausage and linguini with clams...both were fantastic. Very small, 8 tables, worth the wait. There are 4 chairs at the bar-this is a great place to eat and watch the kitchen staff prepare your meal...mouth watering. We will be back when in the area!

You might wonder what you've gotten yourselves into when you pull up to a strip mall with a convenience store and laundry sharing the space, but don't be put off. This tiny, family-run restaurant harbours some delicious secrets. It was recommended to us by a local and we enjoyed five meals in one month, all of them the same -... More

The food quality will never disappoint you- ever its all made from scratch and served fresher than fresh. Service is great too. only 9 tables...go early and... More

Long weekend on the beach - 2 times at Mario's! We all loved it! Everything is homemade and you will love it! The owner personally waits on you and is very friendly. The grouper was amazing -- up there with one of the best fish dishes I've ever had!!! Pasta dishes were delicious! Fantastic meatballs...made that day, by the owner!... More
