Quaint place, delicious food, excellent service. ‘Absolutely’ perfect! Every detail was attended to. We had the chicken in lemon caper sauce, and rigatoni filletto. Tartufo for dessert topped the lunch wonderfully. Can’t wait to return!

So Grateful! Thank you so much for taking care of my family after funeral services at Wellwood. The food was delicious. We were all served hot and delicious choices of either pasta, chicken or fish. I personally loved the brushetta. Service was kind and attentive...for our large group of 40. As an out of toner and former New Yorker it was great to have a delicious meal after an emotional day.More

I stopped here for the second time this year after a funeral burial at nearby St. Charles Cemetery. This time I got to spend a good amount of time talking with Mario. He is friendly and eager to please. It was a Saturday afternoon and...not to crowded so he spent a good amount of time telling us his story. It was an uplifting time after going through the funeral services. The food is terrific. We had pasta, chicken and fish and all were great. Calamari was delicious. We will be back!More

Otherwise I doubt we would have been able to get in. What a local gem, with ambiance, excellent service and food! A bit pricey, we’re from the Midwest, but WELL worth it! Now our top go to place for Italian when I’m LI.

Highly recommend this place if you’re in the mood for Italian. Staff is super friendly and the food is worth every dollar. I had tortellini soup, chicken parmesan, and some kind of flaming desert. Everything was delicious!

Our first visit to Absolutely Mario's did not disappoint! We were greeted and seated promptly. The food and atmosphere were great! Our waiter Dennis was attentive, professional and personable. The salmon was done just right, nice and moist. The two different chicken dishes we ordered...were delicious, the chicken tender enough to cut with your fork! Prices were reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. The owner Mario visited our table to make sure we were satisfied and even offered us a complimentary after dinner drink. Loved the attention we received! Ladies Room was very clean, which is a non-negotiable quality in the restaurants I choose to support. We will return soon!More

We were hear for a large family gathering. None of the family had ever been here but it was convenient to us. We had low expectations and boy were they ever surpassed! We started with a variety of antipasti. The meats and veggies were great....Calamari was cooked perfectly and the baked clams reminded us of our childhood Sunday dinners. I had chicken parmigiana which was breaded well and not at all tough. My wife enjoyed a pasta primavera. Overall the service was helpful and friendly and everything tasted great.More

Wonderful food and terrific attentive service. Our favorite place for dinner for two - or a family party. Always great specials in addition to the regular menu. And on the rare chance you don't see what you're in the mood for - just ask. They're...very accommodating!More
