We had called ahead for a reservation of 8 and it was not ready when we arrived 30 mins. later. The service from beginning to end went from bad to worse! We waited for 90 mins for our food to arrive (1 pizza & 4 meals) and when we questioned the management, the young lady was argumentative when all we... More

My wife and I have been coming here for the past few months on our date night. It was recommended by a neighbor. The food is very good. The waitstaff is usually very good. The value is fantastic. Try the tortellini soup… It is great!

As a regular the take out has especially been poor w/ wrong orders. It is very inconvenient to say the least. For one don't order soup better at the restaurant. Ask for side of sauce w/ calzone and they give a tiny tiny little cup that is used for salad dressing. Missing items etc. Order take out and it is... More

Whenever we have pizza night we go to Mario's. Throughout the years they have changed hands but never the name and still the same tasty pizza.They have a large selection of pizzas to order from and their cheese steak sub with mushroom and onions is to die for. If you want to dine in you can order a pizza or... More

We've been going to Mario's for years! The Sicilian (square pizza) is wonderful. All their dishes are pretty good in the restaurant too and portions are generous. We get take out and home delivery. Definitely give Mario's a try. Weekend nights are busy so try and call ahead.
