Went on 10/14 and ordered the seafood fettuccine. It’s was amazing. Sat at bar and young waitress was very nice and accommodating. Always eat there when in Galveston.

We were staying at a vacation rental and didn't want to go out, but wanted some yummy pizza. That's exactly what we got! We've had white pizza in NY and that's our favorite place to get it, but Mario's didn't disappoint us! We ordered too...much, so we were able to enjoy the leftovers for lunch the following day.More

Very good lobster mac 'n cheese. The cannoli was tasty, but very hard. Good service and decent prices.

We went to Galveston to celebrate my 65th birthday. We saw Mario's restaurant and read the reviews which were absolutely amazing so we decided to go there for dinner. One of the best decisions we made while we were in Galveston. The food was amazing...this service was amazing Jen was our server and she was amazing. Next time we go to Galveston we would definitely be back. And thank you for the wonderful serviceMore

First time to this restaurant and man it will definitely will not be the last. From the hostess (Patty I think) to Ana in the bar, they made you feel like family. We visit Galveston about twice a year and hate this was our first...time to eat and drink here. Thanks for the great experience, looking forward until next time!More

A lot of good reviews, so we thought we would give this restaurant a try. We weren't disappointed! It seems like a family owned and operated place (not sure if it, but it seems like it). Waitstaff was outstanding and friendly. Food arrived quickly, and...everything was delicious. I got the Italian sampler with fettuccine Alfredo, lasagna, and chicken parm. Excellent. Lasagna was made with mini meatballs for meat, which was unusual, but it worked. Desserts were excellent too. We had a very enjoyable time out.More

Just enjoyed a glass of wine, pizza, and a piece of cake. Sat at the bar and the bartender was super friendly, attentive, and inquired throughout about quality and satisfaction. I’ll be back when I’m back in town! Took a photo of the great server/bartender...for reference. He needs a raise, haha.More
