We went to Mario's on our last evening in Galveston, and we wished we'd come there on night #1. The waitress, Courtney, was amazing, and was full of recommendations about the food. We ended up having a pizza (definitely recommend caramelized onions and roasted garlic) and gelato, and were so in love with the food that we toted the leftovers... More

I work at UTMB and this is the first time I have used the Catering Dept. at Mario's I needed to feed 50 students and faculty and wanted something other than cold sandwiches. I called and spoke with the Catering Manager Naomi, told her what I needed and asked if she could give suggestions for that large of a group.... More

If you want a good place on the island for a family meal this is your place to go. Food is reasonable and good. Everyone can fine something they will eat. Casual and family friendly.

I had the Shrimp Frances which was delicious. Unfortunately, the dessert I had being eyeing up was out of the question as I was too full. Might have to go back tomorrow! Our waiter Mike was great. Had some interesting stories about Big Bend National Park. Would definitely recommend.

The chicken Parm and fettucini were delicious, as was the caesar salad. Ditto the meatball, sausage and spaghetti dinner. Service was pleasant and prompt. This was our second visit here and will come again.

Great food and service, ask for Courtney if she is there. By far the best waiter I have had. The food is 100% what you expect. Amazing! Love the atmosphere and don't skip dessert! They also have amazing margarita's!

We took the calamaris, and they were excellent. Light batter, not too salty, tasteful marinara... Then we ordered the deep dish pizza. We couldn't eat more than half to it (between the two of us) and had to "skip" their excellent gelato. Next time, no appetizer for us! ;o) Daneca was kind and sweet and took great care of us!

Really delicious food with a primarily Italian-based menu with some favorites, sandwiches, and a few other items on the menu. My friend and I loved everything we tried!
