We visited Mario Fazio's on a Wednesday evening and we were greeted by several employees. Our waitress was helpful and checked with us often and the hostess( maybe the owner?) also stopped at our table twice to make sure we were enjoying our dinner. The entrees were delicious and large, portion- wise. We will certainly return to Mario Fazio's again.

What an absolute delight: Superb food, some of the best service you're going to find anywhere in the region, a comfortable, warm atmosphere and a St. Patrick's Day sugar cookie for dessert just because. This is a gem on the northeast Ohio landscape that gets little notice, but that is respected and beloved by regulars and those in the know.... More

I have dined at Mario Fazio's 10-12 times over the past 3 years. Always excellent service and food. Taste and presentation always wonderful. Large portions. Hosted a business meeting here in Oct 2014 for about 20 people in private room---exceptional and very reasonable price. Many attendees want to go back the next time we meet in Cleveland area.

Service & food excellent! A good "go to" place. Big or small gatherings the owners and staff are extremely accommodating to your needs. Try the Lisa salad or the calamari.

Had to drive from OH to PA for family. We do not know the area and we were starving. Checked Tripadvisor and pleased to find this restaurant. Our server Sam was awesome and took great care of us. Every entrée she delivered to our table on a rolling cart. It looks like they use all fresh ingredients and the wine... More

The service was excellent. We could not have asked for anything better! Professional, friendly, attentive, and genuine. Our waitress made suggestions when we asked and everything was good. The flash fried calamari, lasagna, and daily special with Sunday sauce and veal meatballs was great. Plenty to take home!

Average price was $30/person with full meal, glass of wine, appetizer and desert. And we took food home ! You can't beat the personal service.

We enjoyed the food very much, but do not go here if you intend to be someplace afterwards at a specific time. We made reservations to allow for two hours and the service was so slow that we were still late, even though we told the waitress we needed to leave by a certain time. Making reservations does not guarantee... More

Had the opportunity to dine at one of my very favorite local spots the other night. I love Mario Fazio's! I love the atmosphere and the very friendly staff. Service has always been excellent, even on very busy nights. The wait staff is very friendly, polite & efficient. Lisa was there the night we stopped (no surprise there) and when... More
