We had read good reviews so went there with our daughter and another couple. None of us really cared for our dinner except one appetizer. Otherwise food was very underwhelming and service was mediocre at best.

A favorite family tradition -- brunch at Mario's on Sunday. There was so much from which to choose and always top notch. We will miss going there and hope they will re-open in a new location -- SOON!

Very special sauce here. Just order the Tour of Italy, or if you are in the mood for a steak, split a 32 ounce Peter Lugar Porterhouse. The Brunch is good also.

decent but far from memorable. Here for a wedding and reception. Buffet dinner. The parmigiana dish led to argument whether it was veal or chicken; either way only so-so. Pasta and parm lukewarm at best.
