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... read 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..

We ordered eggplant rosatini, an eggplant rolled over a homemade cheese like a tortellini, and chicken tetrazzini. The cream sauce on the chicken is to die for. It melts in your mouth. The garlic rolls are great. The only draw back is that one will gain a hundred pounds if you were to eat here every night.

Used to order delivery once a week. Loved the pizza and is great for leftovers. It is greasy but it's pizza. The garlic knots were my wifes favorite. Too garlicy for me but they were still good.

the menu is huge, the staff is friendly, and the garlic rolls are the best i've had since marcella (in north miami) was making them in the 70's. the fact that the other food is great is just a bonus! the pizza is thin and crisp and full of flavor; the entrees (chicken, veal, shrimp & eggplant) are delicious --...

Mario's is simply the best dining experience in Sunrise, Florida. The owners Frank and Martha make each guest feel like they are part of the family. Fernando, the chief chef is humble but his dishes sparkle with divine flavor. In three days I had four meals at Mario's; each meal was a culinary masterpiece. My only disappointment was that I...

Restaurant is small, staff is super friendly, excellent variety on menu with great prices but food was "just" ok! I'll go to OG or Carraba's next time.

I have been going to this place for over 30 years as a snowbird. The food has progressively got worse and worse. Tonight I was there and it will be the last time! The salad is made up of lettuce cores, a few onions and a few carrots. The food tastes like crap and of very poor quality meat. The... More

What may be average pizza from a NY standard, once you move from the east coast and settle anyplace west of the mississippi you will remember the Pizza (and garlic rolls) and everything will be judged by the "Mario's Standard". Enjoy it now!
