It usually doesn't take much to at least keep me somewhat satisfied at a plain vanilla Italian restaurant, but Mario's did not meet even that low bar. Service and food were even more mediocre than the atmosphere. Not terrible, just blah!

Stopped by for a quick lunch at the Doral location. Instead of pizza, I was in the mood for a Chicken Parmesan sub. I didn't think you could mess up a sandwich, but this was the WORST one I've ever eaten. The chicken was over cooked and looked and tasted old. It was chewing, had a weird brown color, and... More

Ate solo this time as i was working in the area and stopped in for a quick bite. The spaghetti and meatballs came in a bowl, First thing I noticed was that the sauce was orange color. The sauce did not taste like tomato, mostly salty, just didnt taste like an Italian sauce at all. The pasta was mushy and... More

Mario the Baker never is going to see my money again, food is not good and the manager in the Aventura-FL store is very impolite .

My friend and I were tired after a day of sightseeing and we had stopped at a small strip mall to go to the liquor store and drug store. We noticed this small restaurant and decided to try it after I told my friend: "It's hard to mess up pasta." I am sorry to say that they did just that.... More

We hotel gave us a menu from Mario the Baker after we asked for a local pizza place. We ordered a large extra cheese pizza ...over-priced at $15.95 (paper thin crust & hardly any sauce, very disappointed) a Spaghetti & meatball $9.95. The meatballs were the frozen type, I was really hoping for homemade (and there was no cheese on... More

Recently discovered Mario the Baker, and since then I am a huge fan. Their pizza is fresh, delicious and a good price. I have ordered from them about 3 times in the past month. I have no complaints and the pizza really is incredibly good. Would definitely recommend!

The pizza had a thick crust, enough cheese, but was too salty. A medium pizza should be enough for two otherwise is too expensive for one. We also had the tiramisu which was subpar. I could not taste the coffee or the hazelnut liqueur, it was kind of bland.

We eat at Mario's every time we are in the Coral Gables, South Miami area. The small restaurant in a shopping center at the corner of Bird Rd. and Red Rd. would be easily overlooked if locals had not recommended the food. The food is simple, straight-forward Italian cuisine with marvelous flavors and preparation. Probably the best value food in... More
