“Budget Italian, consistent food, loud”
Reviewed May 27, 2009

Mario's is a tucked away on Mass Ave in Lexington. The food is basic, but good, and the price is right. Be prepared to wait- you sign in at a notebook and are taken first come. Really be prepared for misbehaved children.,

“Family friendly -- what...”
Reviewed May 12, 2009

Family friendly -- what you would expect from a red sauce Italian eatery.

“Once well-run, now totally diorganized”
Reviewed October 14, 2008

Mario's used to be a great place for both eat-in and take out, but they are now so disorganized that you do take out at your own risk. The last time I was there I had to wait while the owner calmed down a woman who picked up a large order, only to find 3 of the 7 dinners she ordered were missing. Tonight I picked up an order to take out, brought it home only to find the main entree missing.

What used to be a well-run place is no longer. Patronize them at your own risk, and be prepred to make multiple trips to pick up ll the missing items that you paid for.
