Solid Italian food, You'd have to look hard and for to do better. I had one of the best Braciole's I've ever had in my life, my mom couldn't do better bless her soul. Their staff was friendly but not overbearing and the place has such beautiful history

My daughter and I walked from the subway to find Arthur Ave. We walked into an Italian restaurant and were greeted, but I could tell they were more worried about closing at 9 (it was 8:15) than they were happy to see us. I remembered reviews of Mario's so we left. What a change in feeling. We were welcomed with... More

Before I moved to the NYC area, I remember talking to my grandparents who were lifelong city dwellers about where to find the best "red sauce" Napolitano style italian food in New York City. Hands down, almost all of my favorite meals in this whole big crazy world involve some combination of homemade red sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese, and pasta... More

This restaurant is located in a section of the Bronx called little Italy. You truly think you are in Italy. The cafe's and restaurant on the street truly amazed me. My husband ate clams and oysters from a fish market set up on the street. The restaurant has been there since 1919. Does that tell you anything? It's family owned... More

For those of you who know what good Italian food taste like, then Mario's is the place for you to go. Everything on the menu is fresh, delectable, appetizing and appealing. There are so many choices that it is hard to decide what to eat. There are several types of pizza, calzones and Italian sandwiches to choose from as well... More

We came here without reservations and was expecting to not get in, but we lucked out. We ordered fish, chicken, pasta, and also stuffed artichoke, Caesar salad and sides of spinach and broccoli. The stuffed artichoke was okay, but lacked flavor. Caeser salad had way too much mustard (yes, I said mustard, why was that in the salad???) Everything else... More

We took a trip to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx and went shopping which included the pasta store, the cheese store, and of course the Arthur Avenue Market. The unique market includes a restaurant, bar, pastry shop, meat market, produce market, etc. etc. all housed under one roof. Right next store is Marios Restaurant. We have been going to Marios...

We wanted to go to Arthur Ave for my sons 18th birthday. I'd been to a number of places and wanted to try something new. I found marios online and made reservations. The weather was awful that day but we went anyway. There were only two other parties at the restaurant - I think most people cancelled Plans. When we... More

Don't miss the well priced special dinner currently $29.95 for four courses on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. The food is excellent and the service warm and friendly.
