We absolutely LOVE Mario’s!! The food is delicious every time and the service is outstanding! They also serve the “biggest glass of wine in the valley”!
The garlic bread is the best we’ve ever tasted! Mario’s is a must for anyone wanting a great Italiana dinner at reasonable prices. Mangia!!!

Great food reasonably priced. Lives up to it's radio advertising. Get there early to avoid the line ups

Always great food and atmosphere! You have to try the chicken Marsala entré, Caesar salad, Alfredo fettuccine and the cannolis!

Value-yes. Nice place- yes. Good locations- yes. Food- fresh but sauces need imprevement. They did not live up to their hype in their local radio ads, but they were OK. They do an adequate job of Italian food, but I expected better from them. If Italian food has a middle of the road every day place you can rely on for every day food this is it. Nothing exceptional, but good enough to go back to for a resonably priced, tasty mainstream meal. I recommend this place, but caution you to not expect gourmet. Fine everyday Italian food well above the ‘Spaghetti Factory’ level.

We've eaten at Mario's a number of times over the years as our condo is only a short distance away. Mario's special pizza is tasty and is a decent deal for the price especially if you order a starter salad and and one of their big glasses of Chianti. Service is mostly informal and friendly.
We've tried some of the pasta dishes from their 'specials' menu but have never been impressed. A cal-zone I had this winter was seemed to be basically just cheese and salt.
Mario's patio is located on busy Sunrise Way, but it does have a pleasant fire place and checked tablecloths.
