We ate here because recommended for being celiac friendly. We were not disappointed. This was the best meal we had in our short stay in Galveston. The chicken special served gluten-free was amazing. They even had a gluten free strawberry short cake that was fabulous. The ataff is very knowledgeable which put us at ease immediately. Great Italian. Left feeling... More

Our family of 4 ate lunch at Mario ' s on a Saturday. The calamari appetizer was good. The Caesar salad was good. The lasagna was average. The gnocchi with pesto was great. The viva galveston was very rich and tasty. However, our server seemed distracted or disinterested and service seemed slow for a fairly empty restaurant.

I've eaten fried crab fingers before. For a limited time they have non-fried crab fingers in a marinara sauce. A Tastebud Delight. Service was impeccable. Great experience.

We went to Mario's simply because my grandchildren wanted pizza and the rest of us did not. Wow. What a great surprise. We all had something different and everything was fabulous. The service was absolutely the best I've had anywhere in a long time. It is not an inexpensive place to eat. However, we definitely got what we paid for.... More

Based on recommendations from Trip Advisor we tried it out. Service was spectacular & the food was unforgetable! We each had different pasta dishes. We all tasted each of them because they were so good. The view is very nice as well. Our Server, Sabrina, was very attentive without being annoying. SHe even gave everyone ToGo cups for their drinks.... More

This was our first trip to Galveston and Mario's. The food was great. I had the chicken parmesan, my husband had the chicken fettuccine Alfredo and the kids has a pizza and spaghetti. My son wanted a three topping pizza that was close to one of their signature pizzas but we were told there were no substitutions. We asked if... More
