Having recently returned from Italy, my taste buds are finely tuned to authentic Italian food. What I love about this place are two things: the seasoning of the food is definitely the way your mother would do it...and the friendliness of the family staff is endearing. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is b/c the food did not... More

Cozy restaurant with a family feel. All of the food is great, you just better come hungry! I'll be taking a doggie bag home, but the mutt ain't getting any of this!!

Great pizza, great service! Crust was phenomenal. Nice stop after a visit to NASA Ames. Accommodated a group of 11 with no notice.

So many good memories at Mario's. Now in its third generation of the same family. Wonderful food and wine, the bread is baked on site, most meals include a free dessert, the wine glasses are filled, and the people are just plain wonderful. Apollo astronauts have eaten there, since it's within a walk of NASA-Ames. I go every time I'm... More

The place is not fancy. It's clean and we were seated immediately. Beverage orders immediately. Attentative service. Prompt completion of our individual orders. 15 people in and out in about an hour. That is something! Good, satisfying old style Italian food. Complimentary dessert. You can not beat that. Would definitely come again for a large group lunch or dinner.

Mario's is family owned, open for lunch Mon-Fri, dinner only on Friday night. They also provide catering on site and off site. The food is very good, very reasonable and the ambiance is cheerful and cozy, sometimes on a busy night can be noisy but we always have a great time. The prices are very reasonable and are all inclusive,... More

We came here to honor our Deputy Director's retirement, after 36 years of service. Of course it's the government, as nobody in private industry lasts 36 years, without being canned, or pushed out. Knowing it's Italian, I wore my dark pants, and a gray shirt. Anything except white or yellow - in case of splattering from the marinara sauce, when... More

Went here on a Friday night with friends while visiting someone in town. The lasagna I had was nice, but nothing really special. The food is good all around, but the service we had was spotty. Maybe too few staff to keep up with the crowd.

A basket of cheese bread arrive quickly. Orders were taken speedily. Basket of fresh bakes bread arrived while we waited...it smelled and tasted great. To our surprise a family salad... More
