Good Italian meal at a good price.

We had a variety of linguine each that cost about $18-95 each. Very nice. Wine was $5 a glass. Well located just across the road from the hampton Inn on London Bridge Road. Worth a shot.

We walked up the road, the restaurant looked shut but I tried the door and was rewarded with one of the best meals in America. The place was lively, but the staff still have time for us. There are some vegetarian choices and a well stocked bar. The food was tasty the service friendly.

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...
