“Good food, slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

This restaurant is south of Tin City and 5th Avenue South on route 41 and offers Groupons. We had the thick crust pizza with pepperoni and it was very good. It was almost as thick as Sicilian pizza and pepperoni covered the entire pizza, which was great. We were the only people in the restaurant and it took an hour and a half to get the pie! Then we ordered Royal Scoop ice cream, which is terrific at any location in Naples and Bonita. Mario's did not have as many flavors as other locations, but that homemade ice cream is always terrific. The bottom line is, the food is very good but be ready to wait. Don't go there if you are in a hurry.

“FANTASTIC!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Wow! The service is at least a "10" in this little place!! We had an exceptionally good pizza - served piping hot with a big smile. (Very generous for a medium sized pizza!) To top off our meal, we each had wonderful ice cream sunday ... perfect!! :-)

“One of the best pizzas I've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

Totally wasn't expecting the quality of food or service but was pleasantly surprised! What a hidden gem! Best chicken/artichoke/sun dried tomato pizza I've ever had. Mario is the host with the most! Definitely worth a visit!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

Stopped in for pizza and were treated to one of the best pizzas I've ever had. Chicken, artichoke, sundried tomatoes with pesto sauce. We were delighted with the owner's creativity and passion for his shop. Although I'm a snowbird I will support Mario's as much as I can!! Give it a try...you won't be disappointed!

“Ice Cream: ****, Pizza: **”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Seasonal visitors to the area, and always looking for good local spots to eat. Decided to try this place out based on location and TA reviews. We ordered a thin Veggie/Sausage pizza to go and enjoyed some ice cream while we waited for the pizza. The people there (owners? employees?) are very nice and friendly. Quite a few people were enjoying ice cream while we there and there was a short line ahead of us for ice cream orders. One table, a couple, was eating pizza. The ice cream was good, but not homemade as it was Royal Scoop (which I am assuming is a local favorite as I've seen it elsewhere). They have about 16 or so options to choose from, so good variety!! The pizza, unfortunately, was average. It did not seem to be hand tossed, but was made fresh (at least the finished product... Not sure about the dough). I would def visit again, but for the ice cream. Again, the people there are very nice and wish them lots of luck! Go for the ice cream!!! :)
