Located next to Ralph's off of Washington. Great Food. Hot Mama if you like Spicy Pizza. Also good salad. Three large Pizzas, two large salads was a reasonable price.

There is no question the prices are good for the food you get. It is too bad that almost all of the different food one can order they all taste the same - very little difference. The ambiance of the restaurant - well, it is make believe Italy. Bottom line with so many italien restaurants in the valley Mario's is... More

This is a restaurant that we have frequented for years, when we lived in the neighborhood. Friendly staff, good portions, OK prices. However, I have been gluten free for a year and was delighted to find they have a gluten free menu, so we drove across town to try. I ordered pizza and it was NOT GOOD!. The crust was... More

Great food, huge glasses of wine, good prices. The atmosphere and the staff are both friendly and inviting. We make it a point to eat here every time we visit Indio.

Great spaghetti with meat sauce. sandwiches and bottomless soft drinks. There are several in the neighborhood. My wife says the wine portions are too large. They just raised the prices, but it is still reasonable. Try it at lunchtime.

My sister and I shared a small veggie antipasto and an Eggplant Parmasan. The antipasto was somewhat disappointing as there were pieces of white lettuce and only two pepperoncini. But, there was plenty of salad for the two of us. The Eggplant Parmasan was presented on a large platter that included a good amount of batter dipped eggplant covered with... More

Went to lunch at Marios on Washington Street. Ordered Pizza and Salad. How can you go wrong on Pizza in an Italian Restaurant?. The crust was so hard that I could actually tap it on my plate and make noise, much less try to bite it. Very very tasteless, I could have just ordered cheese pizza as the pepperoni had... More

Tried out this place after seeing they had several in the area. Shared the Lasagna. Not the best I have ever had, but by far not the worst. Good standard Lasagna. Good garlic bread on the side. Service was good and waitress was very cheery.

Great place for a wide variety of Italian food and generous glass of wine. Easy to get to, cheerful waiters, crowded but not a problem. Also has good salads.
