The local Lexus dealer sent us here. Fantastic food! An old style Italian family run restaurant. I had the clams and antipasto. I’ve never had anything like it. I am going back to Akron to get my Italian friend and bring him here!

We are regulars at Mario Fazio's. The service is A+ and the menu is too rate. If you're looking for great Italian food and an owner than makes you feel like family (Lisa) then you owe it to yourself to dine here.

Had the lemon chicken and it was soggy and cold. My friend had the clams and linguini both of which were overcooked. Won't eat there again. Too many other good restaurants to choose from. .

I had a delicious lunch and, while my meal was truly tasty, I also got to admire what others around me had ordered. Most definitely recommended if you like Italian food PLUS everyone gets a slice of cassata cake for dessert with their order. Yum.
