“New York Style Pizza in St. Pete ... Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2011

I travel alot for business and always look for good Pizza. I was thrilled to find Mario's pizza, which had fantastic pizza and calzones. It was fresh and delicious and the service as above reproach, the manager was from New York so I had a blast. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting and especially to those who live in area... buon appetito!

“HORRIBLE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2010

We should have taken it as a sign when we walked in on a Friday evening and there were only 4 other customers. We placed our order, got our drinks and waited and waited and waited for our pizza. After about 30 minutes of waiting, my husband asked about the status of our order. At that time, we found out the pizza had not been made. Apparently the order wasn't sent from the cash register over to the area the pizza was made. One of the employees agreed to give us a refund, but for our pizza only. We still had to pay for our drinks. The employees (including one who appeared to be in charge) failed to accept responsibility. He said he had no way of knowing we didn't have our food because he could only see the tops of our heads where we were sitting. Had he walked around like most restaurant managers instead of standing behind the desk watching TV, he may have noticed we didn't have food. He wasn't busy...by this time, there were only 2 other customers in the restaurant. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience and we will never go back. This was the worse customer service we've ever experienced in the a restaurant.

“Good, but Expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2010

Convenient drive-thru. Food is good but pretty expensive- even the pizza.

“Becoming a favorite of ours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2010

We've been there 3 times this winter and it gets better each time. We have only tried the pizza, which has a thinner, crispy crust and fresh toppings. They do have pizza with thicker crusts if you prefer. You can order a whole pizza or buy it by the slice. They also have pasta's, subs, salads, soup, calzones and stromboli. May have to try one of those but we like the pizza so much.
Mainly a carryout restaurant but they do have several tables inside and out in a nice atmosphere. We ordered our pizza to go and then had a Yuenglin out on the patio in front while we waited. They also serve wine.
It's only a few minutes east of the Walsingham bridge so not far from the beach. When it's crowded everywhere else on the beach, order by phone or online and enjoy it on your balcony at your condo.
Our favorite carryout pizza in the area. Friendly staff, simple, fresh and very delicious.
