Small room, open kitchen and few tables. We were surprised, the place was well reviewed but we had no idea the dishes would be that authentic. Staff was very professional, the chef and cooks were in line of sight and obviously loved what they do...and it showed. We had calamari for a starter and it was top notch both in product and cook. Wonderful. I had the veal and my wife had carbonara, both done beautifully, we swapped halfway. Couldn’t be happier, recommend them highly.More

We visited this restaurant based on previous reviews. Though the food was good I was horrified that this small Italian restaurant's staff was TOTALLY MASKLESS (two chefs and two waitresses). If you have any concerns about Covid avoid this place.

We had the most wonderful dinner !! Linguine Alfredo and Chicken Piccata—the best we have ever had. Great service and atmosphere!!

Excellent food, great ambiance. We highly suggest the chicken parm and lobster ravioli. This little gem is easy to miss, but don’t let the outside or the fact that it’s in a strip plaza fool you.

The reviews are generally glowing but my experience here was highlighted by excellent service, not excellent food. Perhaps it's my New Jersey origins (where great Italian restaurants are everywhere) but everything was average- the bread, the soup, and the chicken parm. You could do much...worse if looking for Italian in the area, but I'm still hopeful I'll eventually find better. A tip: the restaurant is small so it pays to arrive early.More

My wife had the Lobster ala vodka special and I had the veal parmigiana w/penne pasta. Both meals were fantastic, my veal was the most tender piece of veal I have ever tasted. Thank you Mario’s for making our 49th anniversary dinner so special!

We had another wonderful dinner last night at Mario's along with 2 other couples who had not been there before. Everyone loved their meals and the service was great. They manage to do something lots of restaurants do not, bring out everyone's food at the...same time piping hot!!!! Chicken Marsala is not on the menu; however, they made the meal for me anyway (2nd time there requesting this). We love you Mario's!!!More

It had been about 8 years since I had eaten at Marco's and couldn't believe it was still open and just as delicious as ever. I was, however, nervous about eating indoors due to the lack of spacing and ventilation in small quarters. The servers...did wear masks. I only stayed because my Father-in-Law was desperate to eat there.More

Great place for carry out during the pandemic. Last year we enjoyed a special meal in the restaurant, very romantic. This year with had the teenagers with us and wanted good food that we could eat at the condo. Mario's was perfect. Love the manicotti,...alfredo with chicken, shrimp scampi, and especially the house salad! ( Great bread too)More

Family stopped in here on our first night it was across the street from our condo and we could see it so it sounded good after a long day. I had lasagna which was really good, such a sweet lady taking care of us, very...attentive to anything we needed. So much food that we all took leftovers back to our condo, seems like a good little spot, not much seating and was sooo hot inside, but food was worth it!More

I’m not sure if they have GF pasta, but I’m sure they have, or can do, a GF meal without pasta if not. They’ve always been extremely accommodating.
