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

Very good variety of wonderful Italian entrees. I've never had anything there that wasn't delicious. Their pizza is the best around, especially the crust!

We went there on the recommendation of our hotel and were given a 10% discount. Everyone notes that the salads are small and that is true. I had wanted manicotti but the waiter came back to tell me that they were out of it so I ordered stuffed shells. They were good but there were only 3 of them. My... More

If you are looking for real food this is your place. This is a local restaurant not a chain. Try the crab cake you will be very happy.

Gloomy evening. Driving home from an event we said, "let's eat out". Driving in Wayne Ave there was Mario's on the right and we pulled in. Hadn't been there in years...for no reason at all. We were so pleased we had stopped. The pasta was perfect, the crab soup is very good, but not exactly like they make in Baltimore...but... More

Ordered pizza to go. Their special was 2 large one topping each for $23.00. Upon opening the boxes we found pizza that had excess toppings and cheese.....off the pizza on the inside of the box! What a mess! The taste was just ok. We won't be back.

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.
