Prompt service,reasonable price and good food.

We had no reservation and they were busy but no waiting. Server we prompt and very polite. Menus was wide but we had a pizza that was very good. Overall we would go back again.

Lots of free parking across the street. The reception area was large & clean and greeted as we entered. We were shown to a lovely table and our waiter advised of the daily specials and took our drink orders. The food was excellent but the chocolate cake was really good but too big. I would definitely return to Mario's.

They use fresh spices and make great red sauce. Pricing is in the upper range.I had a Caesar salad, my wife had ravioli. They have lots of sorbet flavors, we tried the grapefruit and it was great, if you like pink grapefruit.

This is a large, family-friendly place with excellent service --serving HUGE portions of barely-seasoned American Italian food very efficiently and at reasonable prices.

The food and service was good. We had the buffet, a good variety. But they should have had more options for fat free dressing. They had none available.

A lunch brunch at an Italian restaurant will always draw us in and we're glad it did! The buffet featured authentic Italian favorites like spaghetti, meatballs, and ravioli as well as a variety of meat dishes like pork Parmesan, chicken cacciatore, and roasted chicken. Soup, salad, and veggies are also included as is an assortment of fresh made pizza. All... More

I tried Mario's for the first time the night before I ran the Santa Hustle Half Marathon. When myself and three others walked in, we were not greeted for atleast five minutes, as I believe there was only one hostess, and she was occupied by another party's issues. Eventually, after a few more people gathered at the door, a hostess... More
