We would have given Mario's five stars if it wasn't for the rudeness of the waiter we had. He was obviously was not having a good day and came over with a "what do you want, hurry up" attitude. We did not let this hinder...More

Veal Sorrentino was tender and tasty. Fried calamari crisp but tender inside. Veal saltimboca outstanding. It also had an “A” rating from the health dept.

We've been going to Mario's for many years. They treat us well, and serve delicious food. It feels like an old fashioned Italian American restaurant, and that is very comforting to me. When I'm going to Arthur Avenue to shop, Mario's is always the first...More
