This has been a staple for locals for years. Growing up in Lexington, I came here quite often with friends and families. I also eat here almost every time I come back to visit. Cheap no frills Italian food in the town center. The chicken...More

While visiting Lexington, we got take-out from Mario's. It seems like a solid Italian restaurant. We had spaghetti, lasagne and pizza. All of the food was flavorful, tasted fresh, and wasn't too greasy. The portions are huge - we had plenty of leftovers. It was...More

This diner was OK. You can even say decent. But calling this place a great place for Italian would be an overstatement. The staff was friendly, but when we asked them about Lexington's Revolutionary War era history, they couldn't help us. Very disappointing lack of...More

It is open every day and you would take Exit 31A and stay straight for for about a mile or so and it is on your left at the main intersection in Lexington Center, next door to the CVS.
