I love this Place! Family owned and delicious. Food is fresh and prepared to order. Pricing is appropriate. Drinks are reasonable. I live their salads. Pasta Primavera is terrific. Sausage and pepper app. So yummy. After a delicious meal they give you a complimentary slice of Cassata cake or a sugar cookie. I have never had a bad meal here.... More

My family and I decided to have my mother's memorial luncheon at Mario Fazio's today. From my initial phone call, to the moment I paid the check I was treated with kindness and empathy. The wonderful server gave me numerous hugs and kind words of sympathy throughout our meal. In addition to the best and most attentive service I have... More

Having flown into the Cleveland area from California for a funeral this was the first place we stopped at to eat upon arrival. We are midwesterners that found ourselves in Califronia due to work and don't love the customer service or the lack of common courtesy in California that the Midwest is synonymous for. Well this place restored our faith... More

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
