Went to Caffe Mario for the first time based on the great reviews found here. We made reservations for a Saturday night. When we arrived, we weren't sure we had found the right place. The outside of the building looks like a warehouse. Once inside, the atmosphere was quaint and low-key, if a little underwhelming. We had wine and the bruschetta del papa appetizer. The app was larger than we expected and tasted good, but a bit bland. For entrees, we had spaghetti and meatballs as well as one of the specials - large beef ravioli. Both were good, tasted homemade, but fairly average. For dessert, they were out of tiramisu. We had the cannoli. It was also just ok. The pastry portion was overcooked and dry, but the filling was good and rich. Prices were not bad, considering having wine, appetizer, two entrees and dessert.
Overall, I was expecting to be blown away and that's just not what happened. Maybe I came in with expectations that were too high? It's hard to find good Italian food so we will likely return, but we won't be running back tomorrow.
