Marios has a fabulous view ill start off with that. The pizza is great as well, and the service is great. The only BIG problem i has with marios was i could hear the manager yelling at the staff as i was eating dinner. I don't know about anyone else but i think if a manager is treating a server badly they are more likely to treat the customers badly. My server was actually great, she apologized for the scuffle in the kitchen but i couldnt help but think who does that. Another 20 minutes later i heard the manager again yelling and cursing at the staff. As i was eating my White pizza while the manager "Michael" came by to see if everything was okay, as i began to mention that i heard him yelling in the kitchen he said oh the phones ringing and ran away. I love this place and the servers there are great, but they need to get that manager out of there and out of there FAST!

We have been eating at Mario's for several years now. They have a buffet from 11-3 that is amazing! There are always a couple of pastas (they had spaghetti and an alfredo pasta), meatballs, steamed squash cooked with seasonings, and then from there it usually varies. This time there were ribs that had amazing flavor and were very tender. They also had Italian seasoned fried pollock and baked tilapia with seasonings. They always have delicious pizza as well. There is a salad bar included also. We've never been disappointed and always look forward to this place as soon as we arrive. The service is usually great! This time we had a waiter who had to be asked to refill our drinks and such but this isn't normal for Mario's. If you want to order dessert you won't be disappointed either! They have home made gelato in several flavors! Along with several kinds of cakes and pies. Bon appetite!

Perfect place if you trying to mix great Italian dinning and pizza. Not the most cozy atmosphere but they do try to make you feel close to Italy. Food is great, both dishes and pizza. great combination for the whole family.

We went for lunch with 4 children ages 3-7. The service was great. Good value for the money ( we all had the lunch buffet). Child friendly. Buffet had a good range of food from pizza & spaghetti to tilapia, pollock, pork stew & chicken.

We tried this place several times when we had business on the East End, and finally put it on our Never Again list.
They kept fouling up the orders. Last time, ordered take-out. Instead of chicken, got shrimp, which we're both allergic to. Time before that they just got the whole order wrong, and we had to wait for a complete re-do.
Atmosphere is nice, but service is obviously sub-par because they don't check the orders before they bring them out. Nevermore.
