Good solid Italian fare

Good size portions. Nice food. Good service. Avoid the red chairs outside. They are very hard on the bum unless you have lots of padding.

Table of 6. Arrived at 6pm but took forever to even get a drink. One of the meals smelt a bit off with the mussels in the seafood Marinara. Told the wait staff. They checked with the chef and he agreed. They offered to cook another meal but everyone else had finished their meals. THEY STILL CHARGED us for the... More

Given its location (right in the middle of the main tourist strip of Broadbeach) this is always a great place to eat.The staff are always friendly and helpful,the menu has a few surprises,especially the scallops in abalone sauce, also the Moreton bay buga are fantastic.Pizzas are also extremely delicious with good choices of toppings.Altogether one of Broadbeach's better places to...

Holidaying in the Gold Coast with my Mum and we stumbled across this little gem last night!! I cannot honestly rate this place high enough, the food was absolutely fantastic and the service was very friendly and attentive (big thanks to our waiter Stu). The atmosphere was really what made the experience though, sitting in a little alfresco table under... More

When we visit Broadbeach this is our favourite. The food is always great. It is great to take friends and family here as you know the food is good and the service excellent. The Garlic Pizza bread is great for starters, then you have to try the pasta. Seafood Marinara is a large serve but you can take home what... More

Clearly getting Marios pizza to takeaway warrants the production of the most disappointing tripe compared to those who dine in. The parmesan pesto pizza bread was so burnt it shattered when they sliced it which was a complete contrast to the marios pizza which was inundated with so much topping the base turned to slop. Seriously disappointed after all the... More

Had a brilliant meal at Mario's. The risotto and the baby octopus were amazing. Friendly service and a variety of seating styles make for a great night. Conveniently located at the Oasis with parking and close to all Broadbeach has with mall frontage. Just had to see how busy it was here compared to surrounding restaurants to really see how... More

Our meal was good and the waitress provided exceptional service, would come by again for home style Italian cooking. The prices were fair taking into account the central location

We've enjoyed many meals at Marios since we first started coming to Broadbeach 12 years ago, and yesterday's lunch was no exception. Good service, good food and a relaxing and comfortable if somewhat old fashioned atmosphere. These guys are consistent with a capital C and while many new restaurants have opened in Broadbeach since our last vist, it's nice to... More
