Wonderful Food in a Truly Family Restaurant

After playing 27 holes of golf followed by a long drive I decided I wanted pasta. Mario's was suggested by our hotel. We were somewhat surprised by a very short wine list (written on a receipt!), and the specials were handwritten on another piece of paper. The young server was friendly, attentive... read more

The staff at our hotel (Holiday Inn Express) recommended this place and we were not disappointed. My husband loved their lasagna and we both couldn't get enough of their homemade bread! Our only regret was that we didn't get to sample the cannolis; because I am sure they would have been delicious too!

This restaurant was just down the road from our Holiday Inn Express. Good food and plenty of it. Nice cold crisp salad, good Italian bread, and a kind wait staff. This restaurant was very busy and diners were happy to share a table for 6 so no one had a long wait.

Just had lunch at Mario's. It's been quite awhile since we have been here. The food was really really good. Between the 4 of us, we had crab soup, meatball sub, Italian sub, veggies linguine and chicken Alfredo. Everything we had was quite tasty. The service was good. The only negative comment that I would have is that the ceiling... More
