We'll be back.

February's weather had us wanting real Italian. Mario's satisfied that. After exiting 81N turn right, go under 81- about a mile on the right. I agree salad was fair- but the bread & my meal scallops with linguini and cherry tomatoes in the garlic, wine and olive oil was outstanding. We got in at... read more

Service was ok . Salad was very small, but dressing was good . The bread was good and even better when dipped in the dressing. The soup had a nice spice too it , but way to many vegetables and only trace amounts of crab . The crab cake had way too much cake and not much crab at all.... More

We have been back to Mario's quite a number of times in the last year. The staff is always cordial, welcoming and well trained. The restaurant is clean and smells good, attractive, but not overly fancy. What we appreciate is the food is delicious! Made by real Italian chefs. Lots of competitors in the Italian food market these days, but... More

we asked the hotel concierge for a good recommendation for an Italian restaurant near in the area, and it turned out to be a great recommendation. citing the concierge recommendation, we were pleasantly surprised with a 10% discount. discounts are great, but if the food isn't, it's not worth it. the pizza I had there was the best I had...

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
