We like Mario's because you seem to get real Italian Food. I think the owner is truly of Italian decent. The Lasagna is great. The Garlic Knots are decicious. They now have a liquor license and serve good wine.

A pleasant surprise in Aiken. We enjoyed a lovely Italian dinner in this cozy and friendly venue. Everything seemed freshly made and was extremely tasty. The eggplant parmigiana is amazing. The staff was attentive and helpful. Nice overall experience.

My husband and I tried Mario's after such bad experiences under prior ownership. This time I'm pleased to say our food was much better - lasagne and veal parmesan. We will go back. Could use a slightly better interior design.
