This is where the locals go. I came to town in 1974 and it was as popular then as it is now. Large menu. However, my husband and I almost always order the Mario's combo with whole wheat crust and their excellent white sauce which they have named Avalanche. Highly recommended. Why patronize a franchise or chain store pizza joint... More

Good pizza, good choice for a decent meal in Gunnison. Highly recommend the 1/2 and 1/2 salad- that was really good! Pizza was a little greasy, I would order it extra crispy next time. But overall, I would go back.

After eating here 7 + years ago and thinking and remembering how good it was, I took my wife there while passing through Gunnison. Just as good as I remembered and wanted. It was a VERY busy homecoming weekend and October fest going on across the street. The place was full and the staff was running, not one un happy... More

We always eat at Mario's when we visit Gunnison. We had lunch there in mid-September 2014. We love the half and salad (basically a nice lettuce garden salad with pasta and spices added). We also had an order of pizza bread that was really good. The place did not seem all that busy, but the service was very slow. In... More

My family and I have traveled to Gunnison/Crested Butte on many occasions over the last 10 years. We were turned on to Mario's pizza by some locals during our first trip and have made it a point to eat there every time we visit the area because the pizza is awesome. We get the "traditional" crust which is thin, but... More

Our good friends took us here for dinner and we were well pleased with everything we had. Servings are big and food delicious. We had a wonderful pasta salad followed by the best lasagne we have ever tasted. We will return on our next trip to Gunnison for sure to try the pizza.

My friend and I stopped there to get several pizzas to go. While we waited, we also ordered salads to eat during our wait. The salad was huge and delicious-we ended up taking most of it home as well. This was the second time we visited there to take pizza home. There are many varieties from which to choose and... More

First--the food was great. 5 hunger hunters all sat down to eat at once. NONE came away hunger and all enjoyed the meal. However--we got into the place @ 10:45--ahead of the lunch crowd. It took 45 minutes to get our food. While the staff was nice--we were traveling and thought it could have been faster --as we saw people... More

We've enjoyed Mario's for years. Great menu: amazing homemade Italian specialties, hand-crafted pizza, burgers, sandwiches, calzone, Stromboli, and salads. They always have a wide selection of Colorado beers, along with wine choices. The staff is fun and the place is Colorado mountain cozy. Would never think of going through Gunnison without stopping! 50 years old! You have to be doing... More

Pizza delivered late. Crust soggy. Sausage topping was little pellets. Hardly any cheese. I know this pizza has great reviews, but I feel reviewers must be sheltered.
