When we have visited the valley we have tried a few different Mario's locations and have always had a great meal. This particular location has more Italian Ambiance than others we have visited. The staff here were fun and made the evening great.

The six of us went and shared a delicious Mario's Pizza and a Fettucine Alfredo with a Caesar Salad and lots of garlic bread. We all left with a big smile and a satisfied appetite. This was a great meal with excellent service.

We ordered pizza from this place to be picked up. When we arrived, it felt more like a pizza place than a sit-down Italian restaurant. There was a bar area with two TV's blasting away. There were booths and tables to sit at, but nothing...More
