Great fish

I've eaten here many times, but just the pizza (take out). I decided to sit in the restaurant this time. I got the menu and found lots of typical Italian food on the menu then I noticed that they serve Fish and Chips. Being in the middle of CT, it's hard to find fresh seafood. I asked the waitress... read more

Sadly I have been here a few times. The pizza can be good but there are many good pizza places in this area. The rest of the food has a real problem. From hollow calzones when I showed the waitress the lack of cheese in it, her only response was that they were running low so that was it. To... More

Generally go to Mario's for sit down dinner every few months. Have never been disappointed. Meals come out hot, tasty and plentiful. The have full dinner entrees, mostly Italian-inspired, but they also have appetizers, pizza and grinders. Cocktails and glasses of wine (no more carafes) available. This is the only restaurant where we will buy pizza. Their chicken soup is... More

This place has really gone down hill. The pizza is good but the dinners need a lot of improvement. The stuffed shells were swimming in uncooked sauce (soup).The bread was old and stale. Mac and cheese wasn't as good as kraft. Don't let this restaurant end up in the restaurant graveyard.

Ordered the seafood over linguine only to find my entire meal buried under so much sauce it was ridiculous. I ask for it to be spicy and it was sweet. I was not pleased. My wife ordered an antipasto which the menu stated that there was marinated veggies but there was not. The waitress was outstanding nothing bad about the... More

had a clams casinos pizza that was made with fresh clams garlic and bacon. Crust is good actually I have eaten every pizza they have. Lethe ingredients are always fresh and the crust is delicious. The owner and staff are always friendly. I also recommend the bacon and mash potatoe pizza.

I was injured and can not drive a car. Unfortunately I have to rely on take out to feed my family. I live 5 minutes from Mario's and thought this would be great. The boy who answered the phone was really rude! I was told the food would be delivered within an hour. An hour and a half later I... More

This establishment is quite popular, especially on weekends. Over the years, we've been noticing a decline in many areas. Food, staff and overall ambiance. Please don't offer gluten free food, charge extra and cook it in the same pot (pasta) or pizza (oven). This is UNSAFE. Staff seems stressed a lot. One waiter last time we went for the dining...

I take my mom there on Sunday night, she loves the pasta soups and salads. I have had most of the things on the menu and have never been disappointed.
