Very good

It was a freezing cold and rainy evening, and we were in a hotel about a mile away. We came here because it was the first place we could find and we were starving. It turned out to be a good thing. We were the only ones there because of the weather, so service was great. We got a pizza... read more

Having enjoyed Mario’s several years ago, we revisited Mario’s on a trip back from the South. The experience was once again very good. Mario’s has a full menu including chicken, veal and seafood dishes as well as pizza and pasta. The food was well prepared and of excellent quality, the service was very good and the prices reasonable. If you... More

I stopped in for a late lunch and had the Pizza Burger special. It was tasty and served just as listed, wish I had thought to add onions and mushrooms...will do that next time. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I'll definitely go back!

We went to dinner at this establishment and witnessed poor food handling techniques. We witnessed a patron return 4 pizzas to the counter after they had left the establishment. It was witnessed that the staff then re-topped the pizzas and one was served to our table. Would not recommend.

Order with them twice over 3 days for my group traveling to Rocky Mount. The portion for the price was pretty good, the owner (Mario) was very nice in giving us some help with the price. Everything was very good, i definitely recommend it.

So I've decided never to eat here again. Don't get me wrong, the food is decent, if you eat meat. But being vegetarian, I've gotten "free beef or sausage" three times and enough is enough. I've learned my lesson. I've talked with the manager and owner and they were open to addressing the issue, and I hope they will, atleast... More

Came in from traveling between Orlando and NY - were starving from a day on the road. The table at which we were seated was filthy; the waitress was snotty and disappeared after she took our order - had to go to the counter after we finished to get the check. The pizza was not that good - the sauce... More

The title says it all. My wife had a salad too big to finish. I had the antipasti and it was likewise excellent. The iced tea was brewed, not powder, and of course was sweet tea ( could have gotten "regular" tea, but then why not enjoy sweet tea when you can get it?

We come to Rocky Mount every year on our way to Duck, NC. We have had hideous meals at different restos here. This was Ab Fab Italian American food. My chicken Marsala was excellent. My dining companions loved the Philly cheese steaks. The house Italian dressing was wonderful. I have been to many restaurants around the world, this place and... More

On our way to South Carolina we stopped in Rocky Mount, NC. Tons of chain restaurants but please consider this basic Italian restaurant in a strip mall. Just a couple turns off I-95 exit 138 Mario's is basic red sauce and very good pizza. Spaghetti and meat balls in a mild tomato sauce was excellent. Veal parmigiana was tender (and... More
