By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea ...

From inside nearly everyone has a view of the Gulf of Mexico. This Mario's is great for visitors. Casual is the way to sightsee, and at Mario's it's also the way to eat. Oh, the food and drink are delicious, and there is plenty if it! Most foods are Italian style and tasty. A little change in some... read more

I have eaten here on two different occasions. For lunch they have a buffet, which has pasta, pizzas, and a salad bar. It was an average meal at lunch and dinner. It's ok, but there are better places to dine.

From the moment we walked in...great service, friendly, just the best. Good price on wine, appetizers very tasty, and pizza wonderful. Romantic setting for two on a late Sun afternoon.

As locals we've been here more than once and the food is inconsistent. Once it was awesome, really good. Next time it was bad. Pasta was way too salty and the margarita barely even had any liquor in it, was mostly just crushed ice. Service was terrible. Gave it one more try and the food was somewhat better although still...

Expensive for delivery - Ordered two pizzas for take out. One Chicago style, the joey, and the Italian. The Joey has a layer of sausage, not like crumbles, it is a sausage patty the whole size of the pie. The Italian was great.

We had the mario special and the prosciutto and arugula pizza. Very good I highly recommend this restaurant. We also had the spinach and artichoke dip. Good. Service was amazing Jay was very very good. We didn't have to wait for long at all. And the manager came a few times to check on us, very professional. We will definitely... More

A friend and I have been trying different spots on the Island for Happy hour. New Mgt and they are very much in disarray. Food is ok, service not so much.

We were pleasantly surprised when we found Mario's Seawall Italian Restaurant in Galveston, Texas. We'd stopped for the night and wanted something other than southern fried. To our great delight Mario's was open and ready to please. The staff are wonderfully friendly. The lovely hostess sat us at a nice window table. The waitress arrived in the blink of an... More

This is the best Italian food I have ever eaten. The waiters/waitresses are amazing. They do a great job. The prices are reasonable. Every time I go to Galveston, I make sure to eat here at least once. Once you try this place, you will be in love.

I recently dined here with my family on a vacation day to Galveston Island. We drove over from the Houston area with no particular agenda for the day, we chose to eat at Mario's based on some of the reviews we read on Tripadvisor. The location is good, right on Seawall Blvd and a mile or so from the Pleasure... More
