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

If you want to have a wonderful Italian meal, the Mario Fazio's is a great place to go. Lisa, the proprietor is one of the best hosts you ever want to have in a restaurant. You feel like you are in her home and have come to visit. The food is WONDERFUL. The sauces are unique to the restaurant, and... More

I was invited to attend a wedding reception dinner. The dinner was family style.. The Fall decoration outside were beautiful, the salad good and the staff was awesome. Now the rest if it was terrible. The pasta was over cooked with watery sauce. The serving spoons for everything where just larger spoons not servers. The salad went around a table... More

My wife and I joined her brother and others for lunch at the recommendation of some Willoughby friends and were glad we did. The restaurant has a large dining room and the menu has many fine choices with attentive wait staff who were very helpful. The owner came by our table and after chatting offered a complimentary appetizer which was... More

We just had a Remembrance Luncheon for my father-in-law who had dined there with his wife numerous times in the past. From the moment we walked in to gather info re: this solemn but special event a week or so before to the end of the event, I was told, "we'll take good care of you." And they did. The... More

Mario Fazios is a wonderful place to grab a nice lunch or sit down for a wonderful relaxing dinner. From the moment you step into the restaurant you are overcome with the wonderful aromas and greeted as if you are family. The restaurant is not large so I would recommend reservations if you are planning on having dinner. Today I... More

Incredible the way I was treated when I walked in. Taken by the hand and led to a table, with immediate service for drinks etc. Lisa Fazio insisted I have a special topping on my eggplant Parmesan... Called Sunday Sauce. It is red meat sauce but the meat is from spareribs the serve and it was spectacular. For dessert they... More

Nice place in little Italy, the pizza was close enough to the Italian style. The service was professional and friendly. We had a nice time, and the place had some real italian atmosfere. The chianti was good for the price.

I wouldn't say great food, but I would definitely say that it was good. The food selection was pretty traditional, but the service was great. If you're looking for a nice place to eat and do not want to spend a lot of money, give Mario's a try.

We were a large group visiting my daughter and son-in-law and decided to go out to dinner at the last minute....but where, with 11 people?? My daughter called her friend Lisa, at Mario Fazio's, and was told "hurry, I'll fit you in". So I was thinking, "Italian, maybe pasta, ok". Well, be still by heart! What a nice restaurant! What...
