Visiting family in NY and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It was so great we ate there two nights in a row. Upon arriving you will meet Mario & and wife. Bar is great and service was impeccable. Everything we ate was incredible. Loved the Chilean Sea Bass. There was an accordion player on Friday would totally added to the ambience. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Will go back next time we're on Long Island.

I took some friends to Absolutely Mario's last Friday (April 2014) and I am here to report that the food was excellent and the service was very good. I ordered the Salmon Bianca which is a roasted salmon filet with lemon & capers in a white wine sauce. It was superb. To start I had the Absolutely Soup which is a home made Italian style soup du jour. Again superb. I had only 2 complaints. First, the music was too loud when we arrived and too modern for a classy Italian restaurant. One word to the manager and that was fixed. Second, they brought out family style vegetables and potatoes that were skimpy for the four of us. Again, that was quickly remedied. The people who work in the restaurant are consummate professionals and they made us feel very good. Go and enjoy!

Mario is the nicest host and most accommodating- even at his busiest time and it's been like that for years

Been here few times now since finding it with trip advisor. The ambiance is cozy and warm. The food is very good leaving some big eaters like me to wish for larger portions but they are ample. Live music and the glow of the fireplace make you not wanna leave. Absolutely on my short list of faves!
