I had chicken picante that was really good and filling. Enough for 2 meals. My friend had veal chop and it was good as well. Veggies that came with both were awesome. Presentation excellent.

Delicious lunch and very well priced. I had the chicken francais and my friend had the eggplant parmigiana. The wait staff was very attentive.

Looked like a family business and neighborhood place. Extensive menu, friendly and helpful server. Huge, tasty portions. Ambiance was so so, but the background music puts you in the mood for Italian food.

Located in Sunrise, south Florida, Mario is much more than a very good Italian bakery. It is also a casual, but full service restaurant specializing in pizza and other Italian cuisine. Loved their Eggplant Parmesan platter!

We lived in south Florida a number of years ago and also enjoyed the pizza at Mario the Baker -- not now! We should have known when there were only two other tables taken at 1:15 PM on a Sunday that we should seek other nourishment. We ordered a three item pizza and it took f-o-r-e-v-e-r for it to arrive... More

My Veal Marsala was soaked in mushrooms so the veal itself was tasteless. Even though the portions were large the meals were not very tasteful. Desserts were better with cannoli and tiramisu. But the drive from... More

The food here was just so so. The service was fair at best. We waited for a server to come to our table & there weren't that many people in the place. Each time we had to wait - for the food, for the check, for the check to be processed. There was something I needed & after I waited... More

The pizza here is consistently good! The garlic rolls alone are worth coming to Mario's. The restaurant is family friendly. We often see extended families here (including us) sharing a meal. And you get Tootsie Rolls at the end of the meal..
