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

We stopped here when staying in Chambersburg. The crab soup was advertised as the "best in town" so of course we tried it, it was basically frozen succotash in red broth with a couple little pieces of crab..I was a little disappointed. The bread was amazing with seasoning, soft inside, crispy outside and hot out of the oven. My manicotti... More

We Love Mario's! Wish it was closer and we would go more often. Always good food and good service! Pizza is absolutely good and we have tried several pastas and love them all!

Hampton Inn Chambersburg told us to go here and we received a discount for doing so. It was delicious Italian food. The waiter was very helpful in choosing new dishes for our son who was having a hard time choosing what he would like. He loved their recommendation.

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
