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...

Homey place. Service very friendly. Seemingly always present owner makes everyone feel special and welcome! Lisa's salad is the absolute best. (Different from the house salad). She sells this dressing in addition to other items.

I would recommend the Lisa Salad as well as many of the dishes....I feel the lemon chicken is really kind of sugared up, but is good. The Brachiolle is salty always....need to drink lots of water for hours afterwards but still is delicious going down....They are friendly, attentive and you feel as if you're in someone's home. That's the part... More

Our family has been going to Mario Fazio's for many years! (at least 20!).We love everything on their menu, from their lemon chicken to their pizzas! Of course their pasta and salads are also wonderful. Everyone of their staff are incredibly kind and go out of their way to make you feel special. I highly recommend Mario's for special occasions...

The food was good. Our waitress was friendly, and the owner came out to say hi. A couple of minor bothersome things: Our dinners were brought before we were finished with our salads (which were delicious and we did not like being rushed to eat them.) We kept our salads on the table with our dinner, which meant the tiny... More

Lisa the owner is wonderful. We ordered a veggie pasta dish with no cheese and a veggie pizza with no cheese and both dishes tasted delicious. Just do go if you are "oil-free" because they made both with lots of olive oil. Will ask for light oil next time! Great for the kids too. They had peas and apple sauce... More
