Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a lovely evening visiting Mario's. The atmosphere was warm and intimate, and the food was excellent. The staff at Mario's were exceptional - they were attentive and kind, and made us feel at home. They treated us to olives, limoncello and a rose...too! We can't wait to go back to Mario's in the future.More

I hadn’t been in the restaurant for years, it is beautiful inside. Very homely and warm. We had an excellent meal, absolutely perfect, and the staff were friendly and attentive. The owner Zues was a fabulous host and made us feel very welcome. We are...looking forward to our next visit! What a gem of a restaurant in the middle of Swindon!!More

If you enjoy a small plate of stale bread accompanied by a few olives, and you are happy to pay £7.00 for it, this is the place for you. The only thing that eclipsed the poor starter was the plate of pasta that followed. Undercooked...tagietelle with a flavourless and extremely stodgy mushroom and sausage sauce went down very badly to the point of making me feel ill. It's the sort of food that can be looked down on by the many chain Italian restaurants. We also ordered a margarita pizza. This was deemed okay, in every sad sense, but, by the standards of the takeaway down the road, very much overpriced. As for the drinks, we ordered coffee. This was as bland as the food. I've had a better cappuccino from the Costa machine at my local garage. Very disappointing indeed., especially given all the other great reviews...More

We visited Marios restaurant recently and the food was absolutely out of this world. The recommend starter salmon croquette was divine and the homemade Tiramisu was incredible. Thank you very much, we will definitely be visiting again. - on behalf of D. Vassallo.
