“Solid Choice”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Unquestionably there are a number of Italian restaurants in the area, but Mario's always delivers. We love their whole wheat pizza with toppings which we usually get with a small antipasto. The traditional dinners are very good and the portions often allow for take home. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive. It is a neighborhood kind of restaurant frequented by locals.... down home, solid Italian food.

“Pleasant Italian Family Restaurant”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I have been coming to this restaurant for over twenty years now and we've never had a bad meal here. Good prices, good food, for both lunch and dinner. This family-owned and family-run place has been here for longer than we've been going and it's almost always busy. The staff are friendly, efficient and quick to get the food on the table.

Whenever we return to the Sunrise area of Broward County, we try to stop in at least once. Highly recommended as long as you aren't looking for haute cuisine. As someone else noted, parking is difficult but doable, and the evening traffic on University Boulevard can make getting out of the lot close to impossible at times. No problem though, your tummy will be full and you won't really care how long it takes.

“Go for the veal chop”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Our main reason to dine here is the veal chop. Called ahead to make sure they'd have it since is not featured on their regular menu.

The chop comes in a very generous cut and a nice Portobello mushroom sauce.

Also excellent are the garlic rolls.

For desert try the Tiramisu (although the portion is quite small) and the chocolate moose (a little bit too sweet for my taste).

“Okay Italian food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This basic Italian place, which has been around for a long time, used to be better. But if you want a large-portioned, tasty, basic Italian meal for either lunch or dinner, this place is pretty decent. But otherwise nothing special and not worth going out of your way for.
