This Italian restaurant hits the mark well on menu selection , pricing and taste. The only negative I would say is that when busy it can be a bit on the noisy side. Go before the dinner rush and I think you'll really like it.

The food reminded me of back east. Theresa and Melanie offer customer service second to none. The quality of the meal is always excellent a must go.

Surprisingly good Italian. House salad dressing delicious, couldn't stop eating even with large entree' on the way. Veal Picatta delicious, nicely browned then sautéed until very tender. Bolognese' on the side was rich and authentic. Nice find in LHC.

I've been to many Italian restaurants in the country and this little secret is the best. We stumbled across it on accident. Amazing cuisine. A must stop if in the area.

We were looking for a local Italian Restaurant for dinner after arriving in Lake Havasu City. Although we were staying in a campground, and had everything to cook, turning on the oven when it's 115 outside just wasn't what I wanted to do. We checked out Mario's and decided to give it a try. We arrived just after opening, and... More

We had traveled a long way and it was very hot in Lake Havasu City but we wanted to get a good meal before bed. Both our hotel clerk and Tripadvisor was very positive on Mario's. We were not disappointed. The service was prompt and attentive, the food was hot and nicely presented and the cost was reasonable, especially in... More

The food taste freezer burned and old. There was a whole garlic clove in my penne pasta?? Shouldn't they have minced that up?? Slimy sliced onions, and red peppers with grey looking sausage, and that was my second dish I had to send the first one back because the ravioli tasted old...My friend's dish, Gnocchi, tasted hard, and the marinara...

We ate here tonight, nice and busy, so good atmosphere, good reliable pasta, not the best I have ever had, pasta a bit soft, but good portion, and very good server, would return if in the area again.

Excellent value for dinner. A very large glass of wine and crab-cakes followed by eggplant parmesian, salad and breadsticks for a totally reasonable price. Our hotel offered a coupon for a free appetizer. Very good service.
