Mario's has become a sort of "old reliable" during my visits in the area for business. During my most recent visit I ordered the Prime Rib, and it was excellent. Also recently had a good business lunch there.

The food here is very good. I had the lasagna, minestrone soup, salad, and steamed shrimp. My friend had the nachos. The lasagna and soup were excellent and the salad and the steamed shrimp were good. The long island ice tea was also very good. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because their desert menu was non-existent.

The waitresses were very attentive considering we were a party of 15. The owner came over to say hello as well.

The bathrooms and the tableware were all clean. The location is ok (not a fan of the surrounding neighborhood) and the outside of the building could seriously use some re-designing.

The room was cramped, with too many tables put into too small of a space. But the waitresses were attentive and friendly. The food tasted good. The pizza crust was thin, which highlighted the fresh and tasty toppings. The specials offered good value, but the regular menu prices seemed a bit high. Overall, it was a decent visit.
