I'm not sure why TripAdvisor skips from Average to Very Good. Perhaps Average = Good. Mario's is good. Extensive menu with the usual Italian offerings. I went for the buffet after I asked the price. I was expecting anything from $15.95 to $24.95. It was $10.49!!! It had everything from beef (sirloin type steak) to mussels (pre-shelled) and ice-cream for... More

Extensive buffet and quantity is large but food quality is poor. Choice of beers is reasonable though...

The owner was making a pizza and stopped and took money from a customer and then went back to making pizza again. I will NEVER eat there again!

Perhaps we ordered the wrong thing, but the lasagna was really more of a mock type casserole with very few noodles and lots of filling. The sauce on the pasta tasted like it was fresh from the can without seasoning. Had we looked at the reviews, we would have passed it over, but it was late. We heard the pizza... More

Just average, nothing special. A meal you won't remember. All the sauces seem to taste the same... service was OK

We didn't want a big fancy meal, especially since we were drenched in a sudden downpour. We were so happy to find Mario's and we ordered a pizza to go. Eating it in the cozy room we were staying in was one of the highlights of our trip.

Stopped in for lunch on the way through town. Surprised to find an Italian buffet. Food was very good, service was incredible, and the price was excellent. Will definently stop by again!

I guess this could be considered a regular small local pizzeria, but the food was adequate at best and the service was not very pleasant.

Disappointed that it was closed. Not sure why it was closed. The hotel had a menu. We were all ready for some good lasagna and when we pulled up in the lot someone told us they were closed. We learned to call first especially in the small town of Orange, as another restaurant on Tripadvisor is also closed that we... More

We alerted our followers on Facebook. In the future, we will be sure to utilize additional channels of communication to alert as many customers as possible. We... More
