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

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.

I have been all around the world and have had my fair share of good price/quality restaurants....this is a real winner IMO. We go to the OBX every year, we stop in Rocky Mount. This is by far the best home/comfort food on a trip that we have visited. Their fried dill pickle chips and fried calamari are to die... More

Stopped for supper, owner or manager on the phone with automated service. I grabbed a menu and sat down. I waited and waited and waited and left. Owner said they are coming and I said I don't care.

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... 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.
