Living in the area for over 30 years, I have been to Mario's many times, dating back to the days before the owner's remodeled and renamed it Mario's. The atmosphere is intimate and it is not a noisy restaurant, making it excellent for dates or carrying on conversation with your tablemates. It has been family owned and operated for more than 50 years. While I have never been to Italy, I have traveled extensively in the US and have never eaten in an Italian restaurant that has better food than Mario's. They bake their own bread and make their own pasta. The food is always freshly made, the portions are very generous and I have never encountered a problem with the service. My personal favorites are the veal or chicken marsala and the lasagna. My husband, sometimes is not in the mood for Italian food and orders their NY strip steak. He claims it is as good as any he's ever had. This is a restaurant where we take guests we want to impress.
