Try the scallops in abolone sauce

We first came here with the family and were impressed by the service and portion sizes. Having moved to the Gold Coast recently we went back as a couple and were again impressed by the service and food. We both ordered the scallops in abalone sauce for entrée and were glad we ordered a bread to... read more

We arrived to a very busy Marios and they managed to seat myself and my wife at an outside table.The quality of the food was plentiful and very tasty and the service most attentive although the drinks where very slow in coming out. We will dine there again on our next visit to the Gold Coast

We had dinner here last week. I wasn't expecting top quality but for their prices, I expected at least good quality. I ordered the steak which was supposed to be cooked medium but it turned out to be the most well-done steak I have ever had. Quite overcooked and dry! I wouldn't have eaten it but I was really hungry.... More

Friday night was busy, lucky we booked. Plenty of families and a work party but there were plenty of well organised staff to cater. It was noisy but not bad. It was cramped but not unbearable. The food arrived promptly and was hot and fresh. The garlic prawns were good as was the pasta amore. Would dine here again

My wife and I enjoyed a great evening meal at Mario's. The restaurant was busy (always a good sign), but we got a nice table outside. We shared a ciabatta starter followed by two seriously big mains. The quality of the food was good and the service most attentive. Give this restaurant a try.

This is not a great restaurant, but I don't think anyone would have thought that it might be. It is a good restaurant with good fast service, tasty food, mid-range prices and better than average attention to detail. The washrooms might be cleaner. Skip the Antipasto Italiano. The Funghi Imbotiti is a good starter. So is the Oysters Siciliana. These... More

Before I start, I have to say Mario's is a decent Italian Restaurant with great atmosphere. The pizza however, not so good. We ordered a Roma and a Marinara after an entree of arancini, and were very disappointed. The pizza base was like rubber, very chewy and overcooked. I was told on two occasions the pizza bases are made on... More
