Good dinner choice

Don't be put off by the strip,mall location. This is a real restaurant with a pleasant family atmosphere. We needed a place with vegetarian choices. One family member enjoyed the veggie calzone. My grand daughter liked the fettuccine Alfredo that the served without the chicken for her. The house... read more

This local favorite makes home-made fried cheese and it is the best ANYWHERE!! They also have the best house dressing. If you are looking for fresh salads and great Italian fare, try Mario's. Their satellite location near the Nash Community College also has the house dressing and is great for a quick stop. EAT LOCAL!!

This restaurant is a gem. All of their food is great but the lobster ravioli is out of this world. It is served in a delicious sauce with shrimp. It's like two seafood dishes in one. Another great dish is the arrabiatta. It has quite a spicy kick but the flavors are amazing. With both dishes you'll want to sop... More

Yes, you have a wait for your dinner, but then fresh made isn't a pre-made dinner waiting for a microwave. Good Italian. Try the pizza, you won't be disappointed.

Wall murals, waterwalls and great food, cant beat it! Love the garlic bread with ranch, the chicken-brocollo aferedo. Homemade pizza is great too!

The restaurant was easy to find, not far from our hotel, and the wait staff was friendly. We ordered pizza to go, and thoughtfully, they asked us if we needed plates & napkins. As far as the pizza goes – we’re from New York – so I’m comparing it to New York style pizza. I found it to be acceptable;... More

Mario's has a comfortable atmosphere, great service, and fabulous food. In the 5 years I have been patronizing this restaurant, I have never had even one experience in which the service or food was less than perfect. Huge portions, great value!

Excellent pizza and garlic knots. We were only traveling through, but so glad that we stopped for lunch. Wish we lived closer!

On the way back from obx, we stopped to eat here. Food was outstanding and in large portion. We had lunch size...I'd hate to see dinner portions. Salad was huge and well prepared, fettuccini delicious, and Philly cheese steak spilling out the bun. Prices decent and service was great. Like a fly at a picnic, server was always there when...

We've stopped at Mario's for lunch several times while in Rocky Mount over the past few years. The food has been consistently solid, although nothing special. For an everyday lunch, though, it's perfect and the service is always friendly and attentive. This has become a standard visit for us.
