My wife and I have been coming here for the past few months on our date night. It was recommended by a neighbor. The food is very good. The waitstaff is usually very good. The value is fantastic. Try the tortellini soup… It is great!

We've been going to Mario's for years! The Sicilian (square pizza) is wonderful. All their dishes are pretty good in the restaurant too and portions are generous. We get take out and home delivery. Definitely give Mario's a try. Weekend nights are busy so try and call ahead.
