First, the owners were wonderful and as we were leaving, we had a great conversation with them. However, the server was only average. Too bad the owners were not serving! Prices were very low. The pizza crust was very good NY style but the sauce...More

Mario's on Bay Avenue in Ocean City NJ not only has great pizza, but great sandwiches too. I tried the roast pork sub on Saturday and went back for their chicken parmesan sub on Sunday. Both very good. I recommend Mario's.

I've always had a great meal here. Open year round, with authentic Italian food. Large portions and specials every night. Try the rice pudding for dessert.
