This place is earthy with a whimsical flare of decor. The long time owner and chef Mario is both enenergetic and humorous. His son taking on the legacy with delicious traditional dishes and friendly staff will assure a pleasant experience. The adult style thin crust pizzas are one of my favorites. Always ready to accommodate, don't miss out. They are... More

We had a wonderful meal to celebrate a 77th birthday. Had two veal and two Zitti and one shrimp plate, great food. Their web site states "buy one get one half off".... Waiter said we should have requested the offer when we arrived. He said he would apply the offer. I signed his cell phone and never saw the amount... More

Mario's is one of a few area restaurants that is in a class of it's own. You get North Beach San Francisco ambiance and 'greatness' in a very out of the way, but convenient place in the greater Ukiah area. It really is authentic and it's roots really were in North Beach. The owner is a genuine Italian and the... More

We have lived in this area for 45 years, and this is, by far, the best Italian restaurant we have ever eaten at. Everything is made fresh by Mario and his wife, and their pizza is excellent. We always take our guests there at least once each visit. They only serve dinner and they have a very good wine list.

Sometimes a long journey can be broken by a great surprise, such as an authentic Italian dinner on the long road from San Francisco to Eureka. Mario's Ristorante Italiano sits back on a frontage road about 8 miles north of Ukiah in Mendocino County, and you might drive right by without ever seeing it. But look for it, because this... More

We dine at Mario's several times per month. We happen to love the old style building, gives it an old-world charm. And the food...it is ALWAYS excellent.

Stopped at this place driving down Hwy 101. Not many sit down eating options so I made the (bad) decision to stop here. Place does not take credit cards- cash only. It looks like a double wide trailer in the middle of no where. The walls are covered with posters and Hollywood style memorabilia and you have the usual Italian... More

This restaurant is a large modified cottage. It has an eclectic, unusual decor, very cosy and romantic. It has old movie posters throughout which is a bit unusual for an Italian restaurant. The food is good. I have had the veal piccata twice now. Yum!
