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.

It's absolutely because you will always be accommodated by a great staff and of course the owner, Mario, who is always there with a smile to greet you and check on you during your dinner. Always a comfortable dining experience. The atmosphere, the food, and the service...absolutely! Sure, I go to other restaurants, been to some of the best, yet Absolutely Mario's is one of the restaurants that always calls us back when we want a relaxed dining experience. Whether you are a couple, a large group, or family and friends, Mario is there for you, he's there for us, it's a special restaurant, and Mario is a special gentleman.

This quaint restaurant located in an in an otherwise business district is a great surprise. The service is excellent and the food tastes like your old world Italian Nonna is in the kitchen. The portions are plenty and the drinks divine. I highly recommend you give this restaurant a try be sure you won't be disappointed. We visited on a recent Saturday might and the place was hopping with a wonderful accordion player.

So you walk into this restaurant thinking ok its off 110, well looks are deceiving! The restaurant is welcoming , quaint and feels like home. Everyone was attentive to all our needs. The warm bread the artichoke appeitizer was only the start of a perfect meal. The special tonight was homemade rigatoni stuffed with riccotta cheese that was decadent, followed by espresso and almond cake. Everything in this restaurant was delish. We are planning our next visit can't wait to return, Thank you Mario and all your staff for a wonderful evening

The place has a good staff, nice bar area. The food is average at best, the price is high. The drinks were high in price. The mussels we had were not hot enough, calamari was not the best. The price you charge the food has to be great

Had dinner here for the first time last night. From beginning to end it was a delight. Wait service was friendly and efficient. Soups were very tasty. Main course was well prepared and satisfying. Desserts were sinful. Mario came over to introduce himself. The one thing that really set this place aside was that we never felt rushed. Just enough time between courses to talk and digest. So it was a little pricey, but in the grand scheme of thing was worth every penny. On leaving Mario thanked us for allowing him to serve us. Will definitely be back.

We were a group of 5 people. The restaurant itself was very nice, nice atmosphere. They even had an accordion player strolling around playing music during dinner. As for the food, we all had something different and everyone enjoyed their dinner. The prices are moderate. The service was good and they practiced Covid 19 precautions.

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!

We were a family of 9, we called ahead, were seated at 6 pm, good job. This place had a nice crowd, mostly locals. Bar area was nice, it does get crowded. Parking available, plenty of spots to park. The service is good, the food we had was all pretty good. Appetizers were good, mussels, calamari. Drinks were good. The veal special is good, chicken was good. Nicely done, well worth the price of a good meal.

The atmosphere is very warm and fuzzy. It sets the mood for a loving fun relaxing evening. The service is excellent as well as the owner and staff. The food is great and the price is right. Keep up the great work Mario and company

April 26 2024. Anniversary dinner with my wife. Always enjoyed this place but this time they even outdid themselves. Starters and main courses were, as usual , delicious, but when the staff found out it was our anniversary things entered into party stage. They couldn't have treated us better. Ever without a special occasion we are always treated like friends. People say it's pricey but so what. Consider what you get. a well cooked, delicious meal and attentive service. I've paid a lot more for a lot less.

Where do I start ?......sometimes you just have to be lucky....not good. Went on a Saturday night place was packed. Parking situation was poor had to park a few buildings away ....not a big deal. Walk in one couple ahead of us ....waited approximately 15 minutes till Mario made an appearance & assisted that couple....no maître d or hostess. about 10 mins later a woman showed up but she doubled as a waitress ( I know this because she later spilled a tray of drinks on my wife). She left and Mario returned about 15 mins later.... as my wife was inquiring on our reservation some clown who walked in interrupted the conversation & I swear my wife was going to slap him. A woman at the bar who had seen this jerk got up & confronted him & he walked out not acknowledging anyone who was jeering him. Rule #1 .....Mario should not have spoken to this fool or should have told him to wait his turn, We (party of 5) were eventually seated 40 mins after our reservation time...again not a big deal. This is a thriving business & there should be a Maitre d or hostess....mass confusion. Got to our table no silverware or napkins .....had to ask. Place is all original from 1970s no upgrades at all, Filthy black air conditioning vents above out table. Ordered fried calamari appetizer....very good ....Also had the veal chop ....pretty much all bone & way overcooked topped w/some salty brown gravy & cheese. Very disappointing experience....what do they say "fool me once" ? ) First & last time. Doesn't need my business.... seems to know all his customers by name. I'm sure I forgot to mention at least 3 or 4 other shortcomings.

We had a relatively large party and they opened the restaurant early for us, but the service was slow, orders were mishandled and the food was lackluster. The salmon and the vegetables had zero flavor.

My wife and I walked into Absolutely Mario's Restaurant to hear a family compliment Mario as they were leaving. We sat down and first noticed the clean and shiny silverware and the warm inviting ambiance. Mario came over and I mentioned his restaurant came highly recommended. Our wine arrived and the glasses were spotless. We knew we were in for a treat. We thoroughly enjoyed the BAKED CLAMS OREGANATTA, but when we tasted the SEAFOOD BISQUE, OMG it was to die for. Mario must have heard us because he came over to check on our experience. He is very in tune with his customers as are his waitstaff. We were delighted. Shirley ordered CHICKEN PARMIGIANO lightly breaded in a traditional tomato sauce & mozzarella and I had CAPELLINI GAMBERETTO angel hair with chopped clams & shrimp in a light red sauce. Everything was perfect. It's the reason you go out to eat a meal in a restaurant. We didn't want to leave, so we ordered cappuccinos and Mario offered us an after diner drink. We really fell in love with this place. A friend had told me he loved it over a year ago and I only wish we had come sooner. The funny thing is as we were leaving we were telling Mario and his wife what a wonderful experience we had when another group of people arrived. And so it began again. We will be back ABSOLUTELY MARIO!
