I've been to Mario's many times with my family. The food and service is always very good! Mario's sauce is delicious! My favorite is his eggplant parm. The prices are very reasonable. I would recommend you to try Mario's!

We go here as often as possible. This is one of the very few restaurants that you feel like you are not hurried. Only very expensive restaurants do that now. The stress melts away after a fine glass of wine, great service and tasty dinner. Not quite Italy but a fun hole in the wall.

After reading the reviews I was looking forward to eating at Mario's. Ate dinner here yesterday and it was a not good at all. There were three of us and my counterparts said there food was "OK" but nothing special. My experience was really bad. I ordered Chicken and Eggplant parm. The chicken was like rubber. I was having trouble... More

This restaurant was a great find. Mario is still there making the sauce, which was freshly made and delicious, after over 45 years. My husband had the chicken with eggplant special and I had the ravioli. It was all wonderful. Lovely music and ambience, the only thing missing was the red and white checkered tablecloths. Our waitress was very pleasant... More

Had a great dinner here! Small family restaurant . Very friendly staff and great service. I had the special Eggplant and sausage parmigiana. Very tasty! My husband had the Veal Marsala. He said it was the best he ever had! Will definitely be returning!

Enjoyed this restaurant very much, I kept it simple with spaghetti & meat balls & sausage. And Italian soup all were very good and gravy on top. mozzarella sticks were home made with marranella sauce and a garden salad very fresh and crunchy veggies. Lots more on the menus so I will be going back to try some more deliciousness.... More

I had not been to Mario's since I was young. I don't know why it's not far, but I rarely drive through Southbridge and the last time I did, it was not located in the same place so I thought it closed down. I went on line and found out that it did not close, it just moved. At first... More

The service was fine and the lady was very nice. The food tasted like it was cooked the day before, frozen and then microwaved. The Fra Diavola had no spiciness as it should and tasted like someone opened a can of Pastene tomato sauce and heated it. The haddock in that dish wasn't fresh and was fishy. The minestrone soup...

My daughter and I were staying in Southbridge to attend a field hockey camp in Pomfret. We ended up eating at Mario's Friday and Saturday night! The 3 women servers could not have been any nicer! We loved chatting with them and the food was very good and very well priced. The fried clams were amazing, cooked perfectly. We loved... More

Great Breakfast and good service. Went on the way to go to a Blues Fest. Took a chance and we ended up loving it.
