This restaurant is consistent in both quality of the food and the excellent service! The daily buffet is delicious, and the menu items will always delight. Some of our favorites are the Chicken Milanese, the Francese Chicken, Lobster Mac-n-Cheese, Cheese Ravioli. The marinara sauce is good enough to eat alone, as a soup! Try it with toasted Garlic Bread.The pizza... More

I had the best time dining in at Mario's this evening! The food was absolutely AMAZING, and I would have included a photo but it looked so good I dove in and ate it all before I could! We were visited by the manager, Kevin, who was very attentive and talked with us for a little while about being college... More

A staple on the seawall with excellent service. I was with friends for the luncheon buffet recently and the food was bountiful and attractive just not exceptional.

Chose this restaurant based on ratings and reviews and was disappointed. Maybe they don't have their best cooks working on Sundays. Ordered the fresh mozzarella and tomato salad as a starter. Traditionally, this dish has beautifully overlapping slices of tomato and mozzarella. This restaurant served it as a bowl of large chunks of tomato mixed with a few cubes of... More

We found this restaurant by accident. It was the best find ever. We were on a day trip to Galveston while visiting relatives in Houston. Though we have traveled all over the world, we found some very delicious and very flavorful dishes. Though the pasta was a bit over cooked compared to what we had in Italy, it was perfect.... More

Ordered pizza, and was the best pizza I had ever eaten. Ate outside, the courtyard setting was so adorable. Also, our waiter Sam was just the best you could ask for. If in the area, be sure to stop in.

The food here was amazing! We got the viva Italy, a plate with three different dishes and it was very good. Enough to split too. Price was good and food was delicious. Tasted very authentic. The dessert was ok, pretty dry. So wouldn't get that again but the pasta was so good ! Service also great. Thank you James !
