“Great Italian meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2011

Went to Mario's based upon other reivews and was not disappointed. Mario prepaired 3 wonderful meals for us. Small and tight spaces but the food makes up for the size of tabels. Will be back this week.

“2nd time there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2011

We had our second visit to this local restaurant last night. On both visits the food was outstanding, the service pleasant and efficient. Mario was the cook and obviously knows how to prepared a good meal. The Menu as you may gather from the name is Italian, but has a local seafood lean. The restaurant itself is small and casual. The prices are good for the quality and portion size.
If you are looking for a good meal in a casual setting. I strongly recommend checking out this restaurant.

“Great Find!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2010

My sister had a place there for years and never went to Mario's. I found it on TripAdvisor and now she'll be back with lots of friends! Excellent!

I'm from New Jersey, so I know Italian. It was like walking into a really good Italian place in the middle of Trenton (Chambersburg) or Little Italy in NYC.

I had Chicken Parm. Fantastic. My sister had spaghetti and meatballs. She said she never had such good meatballs. I forget what the others had. The portions were huge and the prices were low.

The service was stellar. This place was one of the highlights of my vacation!

“Zero for customer service. Just didn't care”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2010

Travelled a bit to get here. Arrived at 9 pm on Saturday. Refused to seat us because the "chef left early because he was done."
This would be ok if closing time was 9 pm (although you would think that the chef would stay later, wouldn't you?). But when we called earlier AND according to the sign on the door, closing time was supposed to be at 10 pm on Saturday nights.
Waitreess did not seem to care at all. I will not return..

“Comparable to the finest in Manhattan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2010

The food was excellent. Finally found a chef who cares how food should taste. The restaurant was cozy and the atmosphere was perfect and the service was above what was expected.
