Great place to eat.

Marios was just a stones throw from our hotel and they were very accommodating when we missed our booking time by an hour (late coming from a sporting event). They found us a table and hod our food out in a very short time. Pasta was delicious , drinks were cold and service was excellent.

Love their food. Been there a few times now, never been disappointed. Staff are extra friendly. The restaurant is always busy, so to me that is a great recommendation.

When we are in Broadbeach, we always go here for a meal. Absolutely love every meal I have had here. The service is fantastic for a such a busy spot and quality of the food is wonderful. Wine selection is great as well. Open a restaurant like this in Coffs Harbour and show them how food and service is really... More

Very impressed - Good Menu & Selection of drinks. Service was excellent. Restaurant was very busy and staff were still still smiling. The only downside during this busy period was getting drinks.

Dinned at Mario's last night, we got a table promptly even though we hadn't booked. Service was first class and the meal was outstanding while being a great portion size at a very reasonable price. Good beer and wine menu, looking foward to my next visit. Thanks Mario's, keep up the great work.

We and friends have eaten here several times, it is certainly close to the best Italian I have had. The service is very good as is the menu choices. I advise to book for Friday and Saturday nights as it gets busy.

We had lunch here twice. We're visiting from Melbourne. We had pizza and pastas. Generous, well flavoured meals. The staff were knowledgable, very friendly and kept an eye on us throughout both meals. It is quite a good wine list. We had the Sangiovese Merlot by the glass. It is in a great location near the beach.
