Came here with family and the food was lovely. Despite that the restraunt was full the service was great. However waiter was abit slow and rude. A little improvement on customer service may help for him.

Absolutely love going to Mario's. The atmosphere is really nice, a proper Italian family vibe. The staff are always lovely and attentive. The food is super, very accommodating with the menu for whatever you may fancy. Highly recommend for vegetarians! A good kids menu also. After recent visits to other Italian restaurants in Rossendale I can say I would choose... More

The New Chef is great. The specials board may be in Italian but the staff are all aware of the translations. This is now authentic Italian. And Mario and Team can easily suggest the right wine for the meal. The house wines are so good I have them at home. The lunch time service is more intimate as it is... More

From our starters to our deserts the food was exquisite and could not be faulted. For two of us to have a three course meal... More

I tend to go marios quite a bit as it is lovely. However my experience this time wasn't so great. We booked a table for 6 o'clock and we arrived early and no one was eating. So we sat on the sofas for half an hour and didn't sit at our table until our starters was ready. The starter was... More

The food was delicious.Simply made but well done. Starter was soup,which was tomato based with vegetables, tasted wholesome. Tried garlic bread with cheese and again was delicious. Main course...
