After a wonderful day at Moody Gardens we wanted to find a good restaurant somewhere else on the island. We went to Mario’s and had a fabulous dinner. We got a cheese pizza for an appetizer, Rachel C helped me select the grouper for my entree. My family of four all had excellent entrees. My son ordered from the kids menu and it was delicious (chicken fingers with spaghetti instead of fries). I separate the great from the good restaurants based on the quality of their kids menus. And then we went for dessert. The Italian cream cake was fantastic. I think the cannoli was great too but my wife wouldn’t let me try it. My kids split the cheesecake and enjoyed it but I would stick with the Italian desserts. It was a long, leasurely dinner. We will be back on our next visit.
