Visiting the Newport Beach area on vacation and needing some Italian food we found Mario's on a computer search. Mario's is caual and small, seating 25 people maybe, but we were amazed at the amount of take-out business they handled while we were dining. If the locals are going there to get their take-out that is a good sign. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and as first time customers, were givien a full review of the menu and some recommendations. I ordered a veal parmigiana and my wife the lasagna. Both were delicious and comparable to any we've had at fancier Italian restaurants at higher prices. The accompanying salad was superb. The service was friendly and excellent . We'll be going back to Mario's on our next trip to Newport Beach, even if it may be a year or more before we're there again.
