A very pleasant experience, good food, well presented, not too expensive, but getting up there in price. The service was friendly but slow, as it was a Saturday night I gave them some leeway. This is a business, friends and couples place, a little too formal or rigid for families to feel really comfortable. All that said, I will be... More

I have eaten here many. many times over the years and it always seemed special even though the food just just ok. well, we haven't been in about 5 years and it's still the same, just ok. Such a classic place and nice people, i wish they could trim the menu and make everything great. Just ok.

The rib eye last night was excellent last night. The atmosphere at Mario was wonderful. We talked and laughed for several hours.

We always dine out with our friends for a pre Christmas celebration. We chose Marios because of the wonderful food, excellent service and friendly atmosphere. Peter (Marios son) was hosting this night (Mario was relaxing for a change). Our fresh crab appetizers and whole branzino deboned tableside was fantastic. We had drinks before and during dinner that were great. They... More

Food was excellent, but on the $$$ side. Lobster crepe appetizer is wonderful! It was large enough for me to have as a meal, not just an appetizer Staff is very friendly and attentive.

I went for dinner; first trip back to LI in 2 years. I have been coming to Mario since about 2004 and have never had a disappointing meal and Thursday 23rd night was no exception. Food was excellent and so was the service. I will definitely go back to Mario next time I am in the vicinty.

Had a recent business dinner for 15 people. No issues even with the numbers and how busy the restaurant was... Had a special lobster appetizer and everyone RAVED about it. Great and diverse menu. Huge meatballs. Great waitstaff. Getting into the parking lot a bit of a challenge. Valet parking (although I did not use). This is a nice and... More

Two of us went there for a business lunch. This is an old school Italian restaurant, excellent classic Italian food, great and friendly service, always kept water glass filled. Knowledgeable and efficient staff. We both had different chicken entrees which were delicious. Only problem was we didn't want to leave to go back to work!
