Our favorite!

We get their pizzas sweet muscles. Excellent! We have ordered out and ate there. When we eat there the service is kind of slow and the food takes a while. The food is great but the service leaves a little to be desired.

Great food at a great value. Mario's has the BEST pizza in Ocean County their Italian dishes are also fabulous. It's a BYOB and they pass the savings of not owning a liquor license along through their menu prices. Definitely worth a trip!

The quality of the dinner was extremely high. Dinners are offered with three courses at a $12.99 price. Most meals are prepared as ordered and may take additional time but you are guaranteed fresh food and served hot.

Mario's has the best pizza around. We like eating it in the restaurant with their always very friendly wait staff. But it tastes just as good at home.

We went to eat last night to have dinner. The service was great the food took alittle bit longer to come out but they were very busy. When the food came out it was a big portion meal for very low prices. The food was excellent, defiantly worth the wait. Best food in town. We will be back !!

Service sucks. Whether it's delivery or at restaurant. It's sad use to be my favorite, now it's not worth it.

Whenever we visit friends in Waretown, NJ, the four of always have dinner at Mario's. And, except for one time, we have the same things: Mussels (2 orders) and a wonderful pizza. I'm sure many will argue this, but New Jersey simply has the best pizza. Since we don't live in NJ, we MUST have pizza when we're there. And,... More
