I ordered chicken piccata and got veal piccata- my sister ordered something with linguini and got penne pasta. The food was very salty and the service was not good. the waiter we had spent his...

We found this little authentic Italian restaurant a few years ago and it has to be one of the best places we have been to for great food. Servers are very pleasant and attentive. Every dish we have had there has been exceptionally delicious. I am Italian and my Dad was from Italy and when people complain the sauce wasn't... More

We arrived here shortly after they opened at 5 since we had read how small the place was. We were the first people there and told to pick a table and then were given menus. We decided on some wine and an appetizer and then waited for someone to come check on us, We could hear several people talking and... More

Get there as soon as they open as this tiny gem does not take reservations and the do not have a huge seating capacity. They serve high-quality classic Italian fare at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended!

After eating a lot of seafood, we were craving Italian. We pulled to the shopping center and saw Mario's. A bit cautious as it was a small place. We decided to try it. Going inside, we were greeted with a wonderful aroma. Hubby got the veal scallopini and I had the eggplant parmesan. Mama Mia... so delicious. It is our... More

We were staying very close to this restaurant and decided to give it a try. It is a very small restaurant. The 2 servers work together wonderfully as they take care of their customers. We tried a variety of dishes from the menu and everyone really liked their choice. The salad was delicious but looked meager in size compared to... More

After trying to get in 3 times during the height of the season we tried again. No problem. We were the first to arrive. Small and cozy explains why it is difficult to secure a table when winter's visitors are here or during the summer when the beaches pick up. Our server was friendly, funny and on point. Two of...

We've been to Mario's a number of times and never been disappointed. This time was for our 30th anniversary and we each tried something new and loved it! Staff is friendly and attentive.

Truly a jewel of a restaurant ! Very small - very few tables. Outrageous food - wonderful service. We know it is said a lot but we had never been to this restaurant before and we were really treated like family. We will return again and again !!!

Thank jimbonnie
