We had a group of 40 for a wedding rehearsal dinner here and I can't say enough about this place. The food was delicious and the service was amazing for a group our size. Many people in our party had the steak and raved about it. I had the salmon and it was incredible. I highly recommend this place as... More

We love Mario's Place, and go there quite often. Their happy hour in the bar is weekdays 4-6, with dinner service starting at 5:30. Glasses of wine are half price during happy hour, which provides an opportunity to experience some great wines and save money. Last evening we shared one of their fabulous caprese salads: heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil leaves,... More

It's not easy to find Italian restaurants where you would feel the spirit of Italy in the food. Here we did. Food was great, service attentive and accommodating, location not far from the Mission Inn was perfect. Smoked salmon terrine, risotto, pizzas - everything was delicious.

We came to this restaurant not knowing what to expect. It's a upscale, white tablecloth restaurant and we came in around 8:30 pm on a Thursday night. Atmosphere was ok, and being that they were about to close the food was just ok. Wife order Cesar salad and I had the baked chicken. It was ok but nothing stood out.... More

Servers are attentive and well educated on the menu. Everyone in our party was pleased with their order. Would recommend if your looking for thoughtfully prepared food with attentive staff. Reason for four star instead of five: restaurant was noisy which made conversation difficult, and seating and dress code seemed informal by customers.

My best friend and I decided to have dinner here when we were staying at the Mission Inn for the weekend and we were not disappointed. I had the Linguini Checca which was delicious and my friend really enjoyed her prosciutto pizza. We were seated quickly and our waiter (can't remember his name) was very friendly and efficient. The bathrooms... More

It was our 31st wedding anniversary and we went to dinner at Mario's Place last night. My boyfriend back then took me here for my birthday before we were married 5 months later. I remember then Mario's was in a little converted house on a back street and I fell in love with it. Since then they have moved several... More
