Pizza is my favorite food and I'm so passionate about it that most often I bake it fresh at home most of the time. This place shocked me. I didn't expect to be wowed by a pizza spot in small town in NC. Don't miss out on this sleeper!

Good food, better than average service, Sharon is a great hostess who always makes you feel at home. Reasonably priced, good variety of selections. Bread could be better. Likely to return.

Best Italian food. We try to stop here every year on the way to Outer Banks. Try the antipasto. It is huge and taste amazing. Can't wait to get back there.

We had a large lunch party from a training class and were served very quickly. The food was okay but for the price I think I would go somewhere else.

I work near Mario's so I can get in and out quickly. The people are friendly the service is fast and the prices are right. I can eat there and not break the budget. Love the subs. There is a good variety.

Nice atmosphere and friendly service. We both ordered the Chicken Parmigiana with salad and should have gotten one and split the dinner. As it was we only ate half. It was very good though. Plenty of free parking in the front strip mall.

The Good: service, value, full menu, decor, location The Bad: good not great food This is a very nice Italian American place in a strip mall. It's nicely decorated with a Venice theme.

We were traveling through Rocky Mount tonight and this restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff. The restaurant had lots of seating, and big menu including pizza, calzones, pasta, salads, and seafood. Prices were average for a family type restaurant. A couple of the things our group tried were the pepperoni roll, the chef salad, and pepperoni pizza--all of which... More
