Went with friends, and for a quaint restaurant the food was great. We all had different entrees, and each of us enjoyed the food, very fresh, and homemade sauces. Great prcies for entrees.

My wife and I visited Mario's for the first time after reading some average reviews. The spicy crab soup was good (minus the corn) but the alfredo and chicken parm were below par. The chicken looked like it was beaten to a pulp then fried, then beaten again. And for the somewhat high prices we did not get that much... More

The shrimp pasta was fantastic - a good selection of wines. The wait staff were efficient, and even though we were the last in the building they did not rush us. A definite plus. :-)

We went early on a Sunday before noon, not busy yet. The food was home made & delicious. They had a big selection and prices weren't bad on the wallet. The wait staff was friendly and we had no issues with anything, highly recommend. We'll go back.

This is a family run business. It's a small place with not a lot of atmoshere but I will take great Italian food over atmosphere any day. Not sure how one reviewer earlier said that the portion size was small because you better have an appetite when you go to this place. I have lived in this area all my... More

A local gem, we decided on Italian for dinner and opted for a local restaurant rather than a chain, very good food, service, prices ! My wife loved the Pavarotti music! would definitely return

We were looking for a place for lunch while heading north on I-81 and happened to see a sign for Mario's Italian Restaurant so exited a few miles towards Chambersburg. Great menu of good Italian and plus choices and THE BEST SURPRISE was Peroni Beer on tap. Have always enjoyed it in bottles but first time on draft. While the... More

An Italian restaurant with some of the best crab cakes and crab soup I have ever eaten, and I grew up in Maryland!

Stopped at Mario's heading to NYC. It was very good and a nice little place for dinner. Haddock sandwich is a must have and the pizza was awesome!
