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

We live in SW Florida but lived in New York for many years. We were visiting family in the area and mentioned that we craved good Italian food. They suggested Mario's and we went with 5 adults and 2 children. The wait staff were great and the menu varied. This is a BYOB place and they uncorked our wine and... More

Good food, Many weekly specials. Try the pizza, it's great. Servers very friendly, sometimes food slow to arrive, ( because it is served freshly made ). It is worth the wait. Have visited many times, never disappointed.

Mario's has the best pizza. The staff is great. We have tried just about every pizzeria in our area and always come back to Mario's as it is the best. They have excellent prices on their meals as well. I do have to say that about 2 weeks ago several of us went for dinner and everyone's food was good... More

Mario's is simply the best! It doesn't matter if you want pizza, subs, or a meal because everything there is great. Mario,s has it all; great food, great prices, and friendly atmosphere. The menu has something for everyone and there are always daily specials.

Fabulous dinners, awesome staff. Great for delivery or eat in. Yummy subs and pizza bread. We have been ordering their Tuesday special every week for almost 5 years. Their calamari is absolutely perfect. You can't beat Mario's!

My husband and I had been eating at Mario's for almost 20 years. Last summer, (2012) there must have been either new management, or a new staff, or some problem which resulted in waiting over an hour for food, orders taken incorrectly, and a waitstaff that left much to be desired. Also, the food, which was always outstanding previously, was... More
