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 !!

We made a reservation because we had a large party going there to celebrate my son's birthday. The service was awful food took forever and was only average. VERY disappointed as this place was recommended by a friend. Never go 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

Our group of 9 arrived for our 6:00 pm reservation and the hostess informed us that there were no tables available due to an unforeseen scheduling glitch. Things happen, so we let it go and waited....and waited...and waited. We were seated 45 minutes later and given 4 menus for the 9 of us to share. A young lady approached the... More
