The impressive thing about the place is the respect for natural flavors. Everything tastes like intended. Not one thing was over powering (mistake most make). House specialty Rotisserie chiken was excellent, breast perfectly tender on a crunchy skin. Tomato sauce was very light... Good place to try things you will normally not eat due to taste... All gone

My colleague got bread with his entree and it was hard not to eat all of it. Clearly made in house. Even the bread for my sandwich was a cut above. Our waitress was super friendly. The menu is extensive and it was so hard to choose. I'd like to come back next time I am in town.

Been here a lot and it is quite good in every respect. The bread is delicious. You just have to watch you don't fill up on that before the meal arrives. Service and prices are average. Prefer it to the other Italian restaurants in this area.

Visited this restaurant Friday, March 3rd for dinner. Arrived at 6:30, figured we'd wait but were seated right away. Server was very sweet and attentive. Ordered beer and wine, salads, lasagna and one of their specials, Lobster Ravioli. They have steaks, pizza, pasta, seafood, plus more I'm sure. Love eating where the locals eat and supporting family businesses. Great meal.

We really didn't feel like a long sit down lunch/dinner. We also didn't feel like fast food. So we chose a Mom and Pop Italian Restaurant. They had a large selection of everything Italian. We were in a different area from what we are used to. So some of the comments may be more related to our area. I had... More

Absolutely fantastic! I had a salad with a crab cakes and the crab cakes was perfect. Hubby had chicken parm and loved it. It was the highlight of a not so great day. If ever back in the area we will come back.

I have eaten here several times before and was pleased overall. Unfortunately, something has changed! To start our dining experience, the waitress answered every question [the table had] with "I'm not sure". In addition, because we were dining with a few elderly, we asked that our appetizer be delivered first, then the soup and salad and then when finished, the... More

The food was adequate, but when a member of our party asked for her dish to be prepared correctly, the manager bullied her until she left in tears. Not a good way to answer a polite inquiry.

We visited based on favorable TripAdvisor reviews & were not disappointed. We had a small pizza for an appetizer, which was quite good & a couple entrees. The lasagna was very good. While nothing fancy, a glass of one of the house wines is moderately priced & more than adequate.

We had been traveling, stopped for the night, and the motel recommended Marios. We were so happy to have dinner there. It was fabulous. I grew up in an Italian town and I am very picky about my food. This was excellent. My husband ordered the seafood pasta which had tons of seafood in the sauce was excellent. My rigatoni... More
