I have eaten here several times before and was pleased overall. Unfortunately, something has changed! To start our dining experience, the waitress answered every question [the table had] with "I'm not sure". In addition, because we were dining with a few elderly, we asked that our appetizer be delivered first, then the soup and salad and then when finished, the... More

The food was adequate, but when a member of our party asked for her dish to be prepared correctly, the manager bullied her until she left in tears. Not a good way to answer a polite inquiry.

We visited based on favorable TripAdvisor reviews & were not disappointed. We had a small pizza for an appetizer, which was quite good & a couple entrees. The lasagna was very good. While nothing fancy, a glass of one of the house wines is moderately priced & more than adequate.

We had been traveling, stopped for the night, and the motel recommended Marios. We were so happy to have dinner there. It was fabulous. I grew up in an Italian town and I am very picky about my food. This was excellent. My husband ordered the seafood pasta which had tons of seafood in the sauce was excellent. My rigatoni... More

Mario's Antonella Grande warm sub has moved to the top of my all-time favorites list. Fresh Italian roll, romaine lettuce and halved Roma tomatoes in homemade Italian dressing, mayo, Provolone cheese, stacked with meat. Delightfully toasted, this is one favorable sandwich. Friendly, attentive staff.

We stopped by last night to eat and break up our long drive. We chose Mario's based on reviews, proximity to the highway (super quick and easy), and hunger. We were blown away by the food. Spicy crab soup was delicious and very full of veggies and crab. It came with my seafood lasagna (which I ordered based on another... More

Service was OK. Food was excellent! Definitely a place we would go to again. Atmosphere is a little old school Italian. Great menu selection. Downside - no tiramasu (sic?). 😣

Menu offers many choices for all sections of a meal, and pizza! I love calamari. They are the only restaurant that I have been to that offers a fried calamari AND a fresh calamari appetizer! Hubby had the fried, I had the fresh. I had the calamari over linguini for dinner, hubby had the clams. He also had one of... More

We always eat here when we are in the Chambersburg area. The owner and his entire staff are wonderful. He makes sure that everything is "Just Right" and it is. The food is all freshly prepared with fresh ingredients. The Seafood Lasagna is to die for and the meatballs are beyond wonderful. I am hungry just thinking about it. If... More

I've been here three times since May 2016 and had well prepared simple Italian fare. Salads are fresh , have excellent mozzarella with good vinaigrette . Calzones crisp, hot and filled with better cheeses than other local places. Topping it all off : ice cold Peroni on tap. Almost like being in Rome.
