This place deserves 5 stars. The vodka sauce is amazing. It is spicy, but it is the best vodka sauce I've ever had. They also have good gluten free pasta and have lots of options. The house tomato sauce is also really good. I highly...More

Marvelous Italian food!! Our waiter was quite knowledgeable and was able to direct us to some delicious choices. The prices were right in line with the quality of the food and we found the portions to be very generous. Highly recommended!

First time here in over 10 years, we took our nieces for a nice birthday dinner and were disappointed in the quality. We started with the fried slice of mozzarella, which was good but just a bit overcooked...we also got the prosciutto and mozzarella arancini,...More

My husband and I are locals and Mario's seems to be hit or miss. Unfortunately, our experience last night was a miss. We were looking for somewhere nice to take my in-laws for dinner the day after Christmas and we thought Mario's would be decorated...More
